Pacific Grove house description

This custom European-style 3-bedroom, 2-bath luxury home, just steps from Monterey Bay, will make you feel like you are on the Mediterranean, with fantastic views of whitewater, sailboats, sea life and the mountains beyond!

Ideally located in an upscale neighborhood, this tile-roofted 1,850 sqaure-foot beauty is just minutes to downtown Pacific Grove, Cannery Row and the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and a short drive to Monterey, Carmel or Pebble Beach. A walking and bike path along the shoreline extends from Cannery Row to jewel-like Lovers Point, past the famed succulent carpet of pink blooms, around the point with its trademark lighthouse, all the way to Spanish Bay and world-famous Pebble Beach.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a tasting at Scheid Winery in downtown 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 oversized towels.

From the moment you set foot on the property, you will feel like you have stepped into another world. A charming wooden gate welcomes you to a brick pathway lined with ferns and trumpet vines that leads to the front door. You enter a vaulted foyer with a magnificent Art Nouveau stained-glass chandelier, a hand-carved Moroccan mirror and an intricately carved antique wood chest from India. A hallway leads to 2 bedrooms and a full bath. One bedroom, with a garden view, has a king bed and a walk-in closet. A second bedroom has an ocean view and a queen bed. Both feature rustic wrought-iron chandeliers, Parisian shutters as headboards, luxury mattresses and linens, as well as Louis XVI-style armchairs. The bathroom is tiled in terracotta and features a large step-down shower that can be partially filled for a shallow bath. A laundry room with washer and dryer are on this floor.

Climb the stairs from the entryway and enter a spacious living room with elegant Old-World charm imparted by a beamed vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace with carved and gilded wooden mirror over the mantle, a chocolate-colored velvet couch, leather and tapestry side chairs, an antique library table and a leather-covered mahogany coffee table. The only touch of modernity is a large flat-screen TV. Bay windows looks out to the handsome neighboring homes, Monterey cypresses and the ocean.

The second-floor master bedroom has an air of opulence created by the wood-beamed ceiling, bronze Moroccan chandelier, king bed, walk-in closet and a magnificent view of whitewater breaking on the rocks below. The large terracotta tiled bathroom with its walk-in shower, his-and-her sinks and a separate commode complete this luxurious suite.

This is a home where relaxation is a part of every room. Even the kitchen and dining room feature tranquilizing views of white-capped waves on the bay and beyond to distant mountains.

The joy of cooking takes on new meaning in the fully-equipped, white ceramic-tiled, kitchen where you can watch the ever-changing light and cloud show over the water and catch sight of an occasional whale or a pod of dolphins. Cooks will delight in the carefully conceived layout which includes a Wolf gas stove, side-by-side stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. A long countertop divides the cooking and dining areas which allows the cook to serve diners without missing any of the fun.

The adjacent dining area has a long wooden antique table seats up to 8 beneath a European wrought-iron chandelier. Eating takes on a heightened dimension with the daylight views of fishing boats, gamboling seals and gulls gliding on the currents of sea air.

The home has a 2-car, non-attached garage, a driveway for 2 additional cars, and there is ample on-street parking.
