Carmel By the Sea house description

Enjoy the best of both worlds in this wonderful recently remodeled cottage in the heart of the “Golden Rectangle”. “Nobody's Perfect By-the-Sea” is just 5 blocks from the picturesque Carmel beach and walking distance from the engaging village of Carmel.

For a typical Carmel cottage, this home is particularly spacious, featuring 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, sleeping up to 8. The home has been recently renovated, retaining the old high-peaked ceilings, hardwood floors and charming diamond window panes while adding new lighting, carpeting, and a complete updating of the kitchen and bathrooms.

Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine. As you enter into the home, you are drawn to the beautifully decorated living room, with vaulted beamed ceilings, diamond window panes and a wood-burning fireplace hand crafted in Carmel stone by a local artisan.

This home is tastefully appointed with family heirloom antiques mixed with attractive contemporary pieces. The common areas have newly refinished hardwood floors, and there is new wall-to-wall wool carpeting in the bedrooms. The living room, dining room and kitchen have cathedral ceilings and lots of light.

The spacious kitchen is a chef’s dream with stunning granite counter tops, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances and a gas Viking stove with griddle. Between the kitchen and the living room is a well-equipped bar area.

Three bedrooms are located on the main floor -- all spacious, beautifully decorated and outfitted with new luxury beds and linens.

The master bedroom has high beamed ceilings, skylights, a Carmel stone gas fireplace and French doors leading to a lovely patio. Imagine enjoying your coffee outdoors as you bask in the morning sun. The king bed, fitted with luxury linens, looks out into the patio and garden area. The room invites you to relax with a good book or enjoy a movie on a 40” HD TV with Blu-ray player. Or, it could serve as your “home office.” A large desk, printer/scanner and Wi-Fi allow you to stay connected and get away guilt free. The master bathroom has been completely remodeled with marble, limestone and mosaic tile accents and has 2 sinks, an air-jet Jacuzzi tub, spacious walk-in shower and plush spa bathrobes.

The other bedrooms are located off the main hallway and share a bathroom. The 2nd bedroom, equipped with a queen bed with luxury linen, has ample closet space. The 3rd bedroom has twin beds with luxury linens that can be converted into a king bed with a foam topper. Both bedrooms are decorated with the seashore in mind, with soothing palettes of sea-foam green and blues.

The bathroom has been completely renovated, incorporating blue glass tile into the pristine white tile and marble with an oversized walk-in shower.

A spacious deck off of the hallway invites you to relax and enjoy the moderate Carmel Mediterranean climate. A barbeque is provided for you to dine al fresco.

The 4th bedroom is located on the lower level of the home and has its own bathroom and walk-in shower. It has a high-end extra-long full-size bed and extra-long twin bed, and the décor is all about the beach! A 45” HD TV and DVD player round out the room, which is a perfect place for the kids to hang out.

The owners have taken great pride in this house and the attention to detail can be seen throughout. In addition to top-of-the-line appliances and fixtures, high-quality furniture, beds and bedding, they have also provided everything you'll need to enjoy your time at the beach. You will find chairs, blankets, umbrella, coolers and plastic tableware and glassware in the garage.

Additionally, an assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay.

You are centrally located just a few blocks from beautiful Carmel beach and the village of Carmel. Enjoy long walks on the beach and browse the unbelievable galleries, shops and boutiques while enjoying some of the best restaurants California has to offer. Enjoy!
