                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1985

                  About the owner: We moved to Carmel in 1964 and never turned back. We love our home in this special place we call Paradise. We brought up our four daughters here and moved to the Highlands twenty-five years ago to enjoy the magnificent ocean views and serenity. My husband is a writer and I'm a Coach for families of children with special educational needs. We enjoy the arts and fine dining found within minutes of our home. We walk daily in our neighborhood and are always inspired by the natural surroundings of the beautiful Carmel Highlands. Our daughters and some of our grandchildren live nearby. They stayed in this small, quaint, artistic community to enjoy the friendly ambiance and the many outdoor activities the Central Coast offers. One of our daughters and her husband have a sailboat, where they enjoy day sailing and whale watching on the Monterey Bay. From every visitor's perspective, our little corner of the world beckons vacationers to return again and again.

                  Why the Owner Chose Carmel Highlands:
                  We fell in love with the Highlands and the exquisite ocean views and quiet solitude that surround us here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Ocean views forever, quiet, private and peaceful, and close to everything: hiking, beautiful nature walks with views of the ocean and wildlife, Point Lobos, Monastery Beach. Access to a gorgeous private beach, exquisite sunsets and wonderful neighbors who add to this special community. Also 6 minutes to shopping and dining in Carmel;15 minutes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, 30 minutes to Big Sur. Easy access to everything you could want in a vacation getaway!
