                  Year Purchased: 1962

                  About the owner: Family home purchased in 1962 by our parents who loved Carmel and wanted to make it part of their children's home away from home. It was used as a vacation home for years.

                  Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea:
                  The warmth and care of this property shows the minute you step into the house.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The charm of this home is not only the home itself but the ability to literally walk everywhere once you arrive. Walk to town and enjoy coffee or lunch and dinner or walk to the beach.
