Monterey house description

**Good Thru Feb. 2015. Call for details**

Welcome to "Avalon by the Sea"!

You will find it impossible not to smile when you see this cheerful home with its clean, bright spring-garden feel located in Del Rey Oaks, a quiet bedroom community within 10 minutes of Carmel, Monterey and other major Monterey Peninsula attractions. If you're a tennis aficionado, courts are within walking distance.

The contemporary 3-bedroom, 2-bath is faced in sand-colored Carmel stone and sits up on a rise that offers an elevated position over other homes in the neighborhood. A terraced front garden is planted with drought-tolerant native flowering plants.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in Monterey, tickets for a tasting at Scheid Winery and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush bathrobes and oversized towels, and beach gear.

Your spirits will lift the moment you open the door to this feel-good kind of place.

Prints of birds and botanicals and a crisp lime-green and white color scheme bring nature indoors in this immaculate dwelling that features a spacious great room, high beamed ceilings and hardwood floors. It won't be hard to imagine yourself taking flight as you gaze out the windows over rooftops to a canopy of treetops in the distance.

A small entryway opens to the living room a few steps down on the right with a massive Carmel stone fireplace, white leather couches and easy chair and light pouring in through large arched windows on either side of the fireplace. One wall holds numerous prints of birds, plants and flowers, establishing a theme that repeats throughout the house.

You will love sitting in this room and playing games, having long conversations or watching movies on the 36” flat-screened TV tucked away in a wooden armoire.

To the left of the entry, slightly higher and completely open to the living room is the dining room with an off-white caned breakfront cabinet holding glassware and nick-knacks and an off-white table with cane-backed chairs that can seat up to 8. Ceiling fans in both the living and dining rooms contribute to the house's island feel.

The dining room is contiguous with a chef's dream-come-true kitchen -- an absolute stunner with golden granite surfaces, pine cabinetry and a carefully conceived floor plan. At the perimeter is a bar with stool-seating for 4 for casual meals or conversing with the cook. The main work area revolves around a large island containing sinks, a built-in stove top and a stainless steel dishwasher. There is also a stainless steel oven and microwave and a large refrigerator faced with pine. Everything you could think of for preparing and serving memorable gourmet meals is here, including a selection of cookbooks.

Brew your morning coffee and exit from the kitchen with your cup of java to an enclosed patio with a couch, chairs and a table.
The spacious master bedroom has a sophisticated French feel with a cool robin's-egg-blue and white palette, broad-striped wallpaper, wall to wall white rug, filmy white draperies, a white-caned dresser, mirror and end tables, and a white wrought-iron king bed with luxurious linens. There is a small private deck with a lounge chaise for sunbathing or reading a book.

A small seating area includes a white sofa, a pale blue French Provincial armchair, a white glass-topped table and an oil painting of a Paris street scene. Take a relaxing bath by candlelight in the deep spa tub with jets in the master bathroom, with its calming soft beige tiling, his-and-hers sinks and separate shower.

A second bedroom in a soft buttery yellow has a white wrought-iron queen bed with bird-themed coverlet and white end tables. A second bath with a shower has a spa feel with its taupe and beige tiling.
