About the owner: We have lived in the central valley all of our lives. We love family, fitness and creating memories in beautiful places. We have been in the interior design and Health club industry for 33 years. We enjoy life and feel very blessed to have found carmel Valley.
Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley: I have spent the past 45 years vacationing in Carmel and Carmel Valley. As a designer, I have worked on many homes in Carmel and Pebble Beach; the beauty is simply unsurpassed! Our company recently opened six new health clubs within 20 miles or so of carmel valley. Our son attends Stevenson boarding school and we felt compelled to find a place of our own. Robbie is a national champion road cyclist and finding the best roads to train and enjoy were clearly in the Carmel Valley; hence the name 'chateau bicyclette!'
We fell in love with Carmel Valley because of the mild climate, relaxed atmosphere , the many wineries and exceptional restaraunts, and the relaxed, friendly sense of community it offers.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House: At first glance, we fell in love with the live oaks the canapies our farmhouse. We loved the beautiful travertine and cherry wood finishes. However, the mountain view backdrop was the deal clencher! As a family, were charmed and mesmerized. We never tire of the views, hikes and the out of doors. My 9 year old Daughter spends hours playing with her golden retriever puppy in the bent grass lawn and swinging on the rope swing under the mighty oak tree.
