Carmel By the Sea house description

Once owned by a famous actor, director, and mayor, Papalina is a meticulously cared for Mediterranean home. Its ideal location is a prime asset - one block down a pedestrian pathway to the sands of Carmel Beach and 6 blocks to Carmel's wonderful shops, restaurants and art galleries!

A creamy exterior with flower boxes and tall arched windows is topped with a red tile roof. The interior is designed in casual elegance with colors of white, terracotta, soft lime and Tuscan yellow. Floors are hardwood and stone tile. With an ocean view, two fireplaces, many windows, a sunny and private brick patio, Papalina has comfort and style.

The bank of glass doors in the dining room open fully to bring the partially covered patio into the living area, providing even more room for entertaining or simply reading a great book!

As you enter Papalina’s carved front door, one enters an entry hall with guest closet. To the right is a three-room guest suite. The sitting room features two leather recliners, TV armoire, and a charming fireplace. The bedroom features a king bed, flanked by bedside reading lamps and a hand-painted chest. The three piece bath has toilet, sink and shower. Throughout there are many windows that let wonderful light into this guest suite. A door closes to the hallway and stairs to insure privacy.

Dark wood stairs lead to the upper, main level. One is greeted by the airiness of the 35 foot long living-dining room with skylight and walls of windows. The west wall is curved with tall arched windows for that spectacular sunset and ocean view. The east wall of glass doors, at the dining room area, opens up to the brick patio and garden. It is private, a rarity in Carmel by the Sea. The kitchen is on the south side while the hall to two bedrooms and full bath are on the north side.

The living room focus is an oceanview by day and a large gas fireplace for cool evenings by night. There is a TV-DVD armoire, leather sofa, seagrass chairs with ottomans and a beautiful marble-topped coffee table. Colorful originals and prints add to the beauty of the room. The dining table seats six. It is an especially nice area when the glass doors are open. The patio table with six chairs is a perfect spot for a quiet breakfast, lunch, dinner or reading hide-away.

Granite countertops and a stone floor in the functional kitchen add to the ambience of this Mediterranean home. White dishes are mixed with colorful extra dishes and serving pieces. Mexican pewter serving pieces are also included to make your table sparkle while dining! Equipped with a new gas cooktop and oven, cutlery, cookware, bakeware, utensils, vases, cloth place mats and napkins, you’ll just need to get to Bruno’s Market or Nielsen's, eight blocks away. They specialize in delicious prepared foods, great meats, deli and produce. Supermarkets are right off Highway One.

The back hall of the kitchen includes the laundry area with washer and dryer and a back door for easy service to the patio.

The master bedroom includes king bed, bedside reading lamps and table, large chest of drawers, TV, and French doors to the patio - a delightful place to welcome the morning!

The second bedroom features a queen bed facing the arched windows for oceanviews. A large desk enables this room to be used alternately as an office if your group is four people.

The bathroom has its own heating system, heat lamp, tub and shower, stone counter tops/floors and plenty of storage. This 2 bedrom/1 bath area can be closed off for privacy from the main living area.

'Papalina' means sunbonnet. We think it’s a happy name for a casual but lovely shelter. It is light and bright and easily maintained.

You will sleep well to the sound of the ocean, eat well with great restaurants, play and exercise with all the amenities Carmel offers... when you enjoy a special home here at Papalina!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: We love being in Carmel and are involved in this unique village. It is easy for us to make recommendations for your particular interests, or for restaurants and activities for you to enjoy!

                  Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea:
                  The owners of Papalina live close by. It is a guest house for their families and friends who visit them during the year. However, it is also available for rental.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We chose this house as our 'Guest House' because of its great location and Mediterranean charm. As some guests say, 'It has great bones.' Indeed, our children and their families love staying here - and what is there not to love about such a beautiful and unique town with ocean views and activities for every member of the family. Our 8 grandchildren 8-16 can learn, golf, hike, search the tide pools and play on the beach for hours at a time!
