About the Property

Private country ranch family home located on 1.8 acres behind a gated driveway.

In the oak studded hills of Carmel Valley, in a charming upscale neighborhood overlooking Garland Ranch Regional Park, sits this hidden gem behind a gated driveway. With incredible vistas of the beautiful Carmel Valley rolling hills and the park, this 1600 sq. foot sunny ranch home is ideal for enjoying warm summer days and the best Carmel Valley has to offer - wonderful indoor and outdoor living. In a fabulous location sitting in between Bernardus Lodge and Carmel Valley Ranch, enjoy resort views in the comfort of your own rented home - with 360 degrees of privacy and beauty, with convenience footsteps away.

Completely renovated in 2009, the current owner is only the second owner since it was built in 1956. This simple and charming retreat home has newly refinished hardwood floors in the living room, kitchen and bedrooms, and a new main bathroom. With large picture windows throughout the home, the open floor plan lends for larger living than the square footage might imply. The space is located in all the right places - the open living areas! The two bedrooms are comfortable and cozy, with the main bath located in between the bedrooms. Decorated in warm earth tones, the living room has a large sectional couch ideal for afternoon naps. A large wood dining table seats 8 for sunny breakfast or late dinner gatherings. The family room has a 42' flat screen TV, a desk for computer use (Wi-Fi and hard wire available) and a couch that converts into a queen bed. A small bath off the family room has a shower, and makes this family room space able to convert into a third sleeping area.

Two glass sliding doors to the front patio, as well as large windows throughout the home make it light, bright and airy from sunrise to sunset. A patio table with an umbrella and four chairs sits on the front patio. A back deck overlooks Garland Park. Privacy is supreme at the home, and the views magnificent to enjoy.

The home has plenty of books, toys, board games for those guests bringing their children. A basketball hoop is also available on the driveway.

Take a walk and a hike right from the house to popular Garland Ranch Park, with an elevation of 1900 to enjoy nature and the many hiking trails, the river, and from the top of the trails, views of the peninsula and ocean. Drive 1.5 miles to five-star Bernardus Lodge Resort and Spa to enjoy the fire pit with a drink, a day at the spa to be pampered, or one of its two fantastic restaurants, Wickets and Marinus. Golf reigns supreme here on the peninsula - golf at a private club (Carmel Valley Ranch, Preserve or Tehama) or a local public course (Rancho Canada) in the valley or choose one of the world-renowned courses in Pebble Beach. Wine tasting at one of the many tasting rooms in Carmel Valley Village has become a popular outing with wonderful local wines to buy and enjoy. Stop for lunch at well-known Cafe Rustica Restaurant and mingle through art and gift shops for a perfect afternoon in CV Village four miles from the home.

If you prefer, spend the day in Carmel-by-the-Sea (9 miles) to enjoy Carmel beach, more upscale shopping, art galleries, wine tasting and many fine restaurants. Enjoy convenience at Mid-Valley Shopping Center (3 miles) with a Safeway grocery store, a Carmel Coffee Roasting Company coffee shop, and three wonderful restaurants just minutes away.

The Monterey Peninsula is truly a treasure to be explored with Carmel, Carmel Valley Village, Monterey, Pacific Grove and famous Big Sur all offering unique day experiences with spectacular vistas. Stay for a week, or stay all summer, you won't want to leave this country home once you spend a few peaceful nights here!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Originally from the Bay Area, we moved our family to the Monterey Peninsula in 2002 to raise our children and experience the incredible outdoor living and slower pace that the Monterey Peninsula had to offer. An avid hiker, swimmer, and outdoors person, the Central Coast offered the perfect blend of living for me and our family. Carmel Valley became home in 2009 after living closer to the beach for the first five years. We love it here in sunny and beautiful Carmel Valley in our country ranch home!

Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley, CA, USA:
A private country retreat behind a gated driveway in one of Carmel Valley's finest neighborhoods makes for a serene and comfortable stay. Ideal location in the valley with warmer weather than the coast, outings whether it be hiking/biking, wine tasting, restaurants or driving to Carmel or Big Sur are still convenient. Better yet, stay home and take a much needed rest in the natural beautiful surroundings!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Safely located behind a gated driveway, privacy is supreme at this home. Nestled among the oak trees, the views of Garland are magnificent, and the simple and charming country feel can be a perfect romantic or family get-a-way. Amenities are immaculate and the home has a wonderful fee. Amenities include the bed linens, towels, fully-functional kitchen (pots/pans, utensils, smaller appliances, dishes and glassware), a large flat screen TV with HD/cable, DVD, and hard wire and wi-fi internet throughout the home, and waher/dryer. A large driveway will fit multiple cars. The double car garage can be used for bikes, golf clubs and other storage.
