It took 2 years and $5,000,000 to recreate this British empire estate worthy of Tommy Bahama. Whether it is the flowering vines on the main residence or the giant ferns shading the cottage/catering center you will wonder if indeed the tropic splendor of 1880's Singapore has come to coastal elegance that is Carmel by the Sea.
Our long time business clients or new friends can stroll the quiet rose gardens or do some entertaining of their own on the the over 2,000 sq. ft. of stone patios. Is it the tropical cabana or the slate roof lines that provide the perfect backdrop to an corporate gathering or a 50th anniversary? Is it a catered dinner or 'smores' at the outdoor fireplace with the kids that gives pause in the lush surroundings to contemplate the blessings of success?
A tiger-stripped stone walkway guides you from the off street parking to the carved glass of the Mahogany front door. As you enter the main residence you are surrounded by the comfortable elegance that at once says 'Wow' and also 'welcome home'. Our upper drive parking accommodates three vehicles easily while the lower drive preferred drop off allows all guests easy access.
The gourmet kitchen featuring a sub-zero refrigerator and Viking 6 burner range presents our guests with their first dilemma! Should I prepare the evenings offering myself? Perhaps free range chicken with local chanterelle mushrooms and glass of 2006 Robert Talbot Pinot?. But then again you're in Carmel home to some of the best restaurants in the world. You take the 10 min. walk to downtown Carmel by the Sea where world class dining awaits!
Throughout the main residence one's expectations are well accommodated. The flicker of wood burning fireplaces is seen in the kitchen and living room, while the library/video room can be shut off for viewing privacy and 'quiet' for the rest of the house. Our 'Boat room' doubles as a game/fitness area while also having a conference option hosting twenty attendees. With over 70% of the residence accessible from the main floor with no steps and preferred drop off via our lower drive all guests are comfortable.
There are 2 suites on the main floor. The 'Queen room' done in shades of cinnamon and coral features a queen bed, private bath and wood burning fireplace. For those whose life experience now exceeds their stair climbing talents, this is a great suite. Across the hall, the Twin room has the flexibility of either 2 twin beds or a single king. Either way the claw foot tub is the perfect spot to end a day at the links of 'Pebble' or shopping on 'Ocean Ave'.
The upstairs suites neither disappoint. Morning is greeted in the 'Birds Nest' with a birds eye view of the Monterey Pines. A king bed, fireplace and Jacuzzi tub make the evenings pleasant as well. The other suite, 'Bridge room' - it literally bridges the 2 halves of the home - is our largest suite with a king bed, gas fireplace, Jacuzzi tub and queen sofa bed. Both suites offer private slate decks overlooking the forested patios, whispering 'more wine and cheese, please'.
Aloha Estate is located off of Ocean Avenue. Due to its location it often escapes the chilly afternoon fog, yet is only a 10 minute walk to downtown. In line with Carmel Valley, the Estate benefits from its warming breezes, allowing one to enjoy a BBQ on its stone patios or a lounge with a good book. Its expansive gardens back to the Carmel Mission trial, a 15 minute stroll away!

Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea: Prior to purchasing the property my wife and I had visited Carmel for almost 30 years. Being a real estate developer in N. California and Hawaii, I was 'picky' regarding what we were looking for in a high end house. We started seriously looking 5 years ago, when my wife found this property it had actually been taken off the market. Though it was in need of much updating I loved the location and my wife appreciated the interior 'bones'. With our background of developing in Hawaii we decided to do a rendition of a British empire 'fusion', our version of British estates found throughout Singapore, Hong Kong and the Philippines. 2 years and $5,000,000 later, we hope that we succeeded!
