A charming and eloquently designed contemporary craftsman home and humble cottage on a secluded estate. With the help of a Feng Shui master, our home has been designed to keep your Chi in tact! This Carmel getaway provides privacy, beauty, and plenty of outdoor spaces, while still being walking distance to the shops and restaurants of downtown. Hiking trails and the Forest Theatre are also just a stones throw away from this special hideaway. Enjoy the peaceful sounds of nature from this one of a kind retreat, backing up to the forested beauty of Carmel's Mission Creek.
This peaceful setting features views of the Carmel Forest, sounds of the babbling Mission Creek, distant crashing waves, and numerous song birds to sooth your spirits. Vaulted ceilings, fireplaces in the master and living room, and a handmade spiral staircase are just a few features that make this home special. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath home is on .6 acre lot in Carmel's Mission Creek area. Stairs from the street / garage level lead down to expansive brick patios and entrance to the main living area: large entry with sitting area around fireplace, expansive living room area with built in window seats for panoramic views of forest and tile and maple wood floors throughout, dining area separated from kitchen over a service bar, kitchen with gas range, refrigerator, and tile counters. One guest bedroom and bath (tub/shower) are also on this level. Upstairs is the master suite with fireplace, balcony, en suite bath with jacuzzi tub and shower over; and third suite with balcony and en suite bath (shower). All 3 bathrooms are elegantly designed and oversized with stone tile floors and counters.
We welcome a maximum number of six guests (including children) in the main house and 2-4 in the 'optional' guest cottage which is located across a cute little bricked breezeway adjacent to the main house.
After a challenging day of shopping, beach-going, golfing, or dining, this special home is perfect for relaxation and recharging for your next day's adventure! Surrounded by the forest and the sounds of nature, this is truly a special place!
