Welcome to 'Villa Escondido'!

With distinctive elegance and charm, this 1925 Mediterranean-style 5-bedroom, 3-bath home is the epitome of genteel luxury, featuring countless original touches that make it stand out as a highly desirable site for a family reunion, a wedding party or multiple families vacationing together.

Set on an elevated lot, this rare two-story home, has views over rooftops to Monterey Bay and is only 1 block from the stunning rocky Pacific Grove shoreline with its crashing waves, abundance of marine life and a magnificent walking/biking trail that extends 7 miles along the water's edge. It is just minutes in one direction to the quaint downtown, with all its fine shops and restaurants, and, in the opposite direction, to Cannery Row and the renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Among the highlights of this beautifully appointed dwelling: a light-filled kitchen that would delight any chef, a large dining room perfect for formal dinner parties or large friendly mealtimes, a spectacular sun room with half columns and French paned windows, a spacious living room with white painted-stone gas fireplace and an enormous master bedroom with breathtaking bay views and much, much more.

You will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the renowned Spa on the Plaza in Monterey, tickets for a Scheid Winery tasting in Carmel, and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush bathrobes and luxury towels.

You enter the property on the side of the house through a weathered wood and wrought-iron arched gate that opens to a courtyard bordered by a low adobe-brick wall lined with bougainvillea and picturesque mature trees with long droopy branches and a tiered fountain planted with colorful flowers. A long veranda with columns and Craftsman style light fixtures has four French-paned doors and a wooden door that serves as the actual entrance.

A spacious foyer with an antique white entry table and white bench with baskets opens to the kitchen on the left and a formal dining room on the right. Next to the foyer is a turn-of-the-century wooden telephone booth that now serves as a coat closet and a conversation piece. Beyond the dining room to the front of the house is the living room and a cheery sun room.

A wonderful space for convivial large family gatherings or cocktail parties, the spacious living room, light-filled from a row of paned windows that face the bay, has refinished hardwood floors, a gas fireplace and a long window seat with cushions. It offers seating for 10-12 that can be expanded to 15 or more with the addition of chairs from nearby rooms. Furnishings include 2 contemporary beige couches adorned with blue sea-foam pillows and soft plush throws, a large beige easy chair, a large dark wood coffee table and matching end tables, a striped wool rug in cream, tans and beige and a dark wood console table with nautilus lamp. Coastal art completes the decor.

The adjacent sun room, with its three walls of glass and partial bay views, is a great place for enjoying morning tea or coffee. Filled with greenery, the room is furnished with four large wicker chairs with tan cushions around a 42' glass-topped table with a dark wood base that is the perfect spot for playing cards or games or enjoying breakfast.

The bright, cheery kitchen has granite counter tops in green and jade colors, tile flooring, two stainless steel sinks and stainless steel appliances. A large central island contains a gas stove top with slate back splash, a stainless steel prep sink and is equipped with two stools. Other appliances include an oven, a dishwasher, a microwave and all the small appliances you would ever want. There are lots of cabinets and drawers, as well as open shelving displaying handsome dishes and glassware. More intimate casual meals can be enjoyed at an eating area that includes built-in seating for 3 with a white antique table and 2 matching white chairs.

Off the kitchen in the back yard is a private brick patio with mature trees and colorful pots of flowers. There is a rectangular table with 6 chairs and a gas grill perfect for enjoying the outdoors and a family barbecue.

The large dining room, with a wall of glass doors with mullions and updated brushed nickel ceiling lamp, is lovely -- the perfect setting for formal dinner parties or large family mealtimes. A long wooden table with sea-foam green upholstered chairs can seat 12. Additional chairs can be added to seat up to 15. Built-in white wooden shelving lines two walls and houses attractive serving dishes, baskets and shadow boxes filled with shells.

A den with wall-to-wall gray and brown carpeting and a wet bar with sink can sleep two on a contemporary charcoal-gray queen-sized sleeper sofa with sea-foam blue accents. A wooden coffee table can be elevated for eating while watching your favorite shows or movies on a 50' HDTV with Blue Ray DVD player. A video library and games are provided. There are 2 wooden chairs and 2 small teal cushion stools for additional seating. The TV can be moved to the living room if the Den is needed as a private 5th bedroom.

A bedroom on this floor looks out to the back yard. It has 2 twins fitted with luxury linens, a cream and tan coverlet and taupe comforters with sea-coral shams (if preferred, the twins can be converted to a king with Memory Foam topper); two white side tables; sea-themed lamps; a chair and a table.

An attractive bathroom with old-fashioned black and white tiles has a tub-shower combination. White plush towels, spa amenities and a sea-foam green rug and baskets of rolled facecloths give it a updated sophisticated look.

The second story, with its spacious hallway, alcove, remarkably large master and charming dormer, is filled with unique touches seldom seen in newer houses. Tucked at the top of the stairs, the alcove has built-in shelving that holds a 40” HDTV, Blue Ray DVD player and video library. It has a twin bed with a sand-colored coverlet and a variety of colorful coastal themed pillows that can sleep a child or a teenager. There are two wicker chairs in the adjacent spacious hallway landing that allow additional seating for watching TV.

The master, which would be perfect for newlyweds, is unbelievably spacious and has a white wooden panel king bed with matching white end tables, sea urchin lamps, a white electric fireplace, a chaise with linen slipcover, and an area rug in blue, green and brown stripes. It features gorgeous water views and includes a 9 foot window bed (double width) with sea-foam blue coverlets, lots of pillows and built-in drawers. The master bath has forest-green tile on the counter and area around the deep soaking tub with shower, two sinks with chrome-spa amenities, and lots of built-in shelving. It opens to a large walk-in closet with built-ins and bay views.

A second upstairs bedroom has a white cottage wood queen bed with hotel-quality linens and an aqua coverlet, white duvet comforter, aqua coral Euro pillows, two white bedside stands and seashell lamps, a tall white bureau and plush white and beige shag rug.

A second bathroom with a tub-shower combo and plenty of counter space and cabinets in accents of soft green and is available for the 2 upstairs guest bedroom

A delightful dormer with soft butter-cream yellow coverlets and blue accents can accommodate 4 singles or a couple with 3 children. It has one queen size bed, a white wooden trundle day bed couch that can sleep 1 above and 1 below and one twin. Other furnishings include an antique dresser with blue knobs, white shelving stocked with books, sea themed lamps, 3 soft white shag area rugs and whimsical mermaid pillows.

Pet friendly, the home has a fenced yard. A 2-car garage can accommodate one compact and one standard sized car. A separate laundry room is connected to the garage. Beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, plastic tableware and a umbrella that are provided for a fun day at the beach.
