Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Our romance began in 1961 when Diane came to Carmel at age 22 to be a 4th grade teacher at Carmel River School. Out of the Blue, she met Chuck who had just left the Navy's Blue Angels and was enrolled in the Naval Postgraduate School. In 1964 we were married and began a life together. Through the years, as a Navy family, we lived many places, but always returned to Carmel to visit our old friends and to bask in the beauty of the area.

Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea:
Of course, we always wished we had bought a place when we first lived here, and never really thought we would ever own a home in Carmel. But finally Out of the Blue we made the big step and bought our special spot in May 2000

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We hope you enjoy our home and this beautiful area, and will return many times. Chuck and Diane Elliott
