About the property

4 bedroom, 2 bath updated classic ranch-style home, garden views from all rooms



Welcome to Casa Colina - 'House on the Hill'. Casa Colina is a lovely, private, immaculate and well-cared for home that seamlessly and graciously merges the indoors with the outdoors. It is a classic California ranch-style home that has been professionally designed, decorated and landscaped. Large windows and french doors in every room look out onto the oak-filled gardens. It is one mile to downtown Carmel and less than two miles to the Carmel Beach. Pebble Beach, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Carmel Valley and Point Lobos are a10 minute drive away, and Big Sur is a 30 minute drive.

Wood floors, a high pitched ceiling, an old-brick fireplace, a wall of bookcases and a wall of windows and french doors grace the spacious living room and dining area. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen features a second fireplace, granite counters, counter seating, and a separate dining area with a built-in desk and window seat that looks out to the entry fountain.

The master bedroom with a king bed has wood floors, a high, pitched ceiling, french doors that open onto a private patio overlooking the garden, and a window seat with a view of oak trees. The master bath features a limestone floor and shower/tub and views of the lush and very private garden. Please note that this room does not have window coverings but is very private. Sleep shades are provided.

Two carpeted guest bedrooms have built-in bookcases and garden views. One guest room (full bed) has french doors that open onto to a private patio and views of the rose garden. The other guest bedroom (queen bed) has its own bathroom.

There is a carpeted 'bonus' area/4th bedroom adjacent to the kitchen with an office area, full bed, enclosed laundry area, and french doors that open onto a large brick patio.

Dozens of oak trees grace the one-acre property which is situated at the top of a low hill. There are no views of the street from the house. The professionally designed and landscaped gardens feature a fountain, large lawn area, rose garden, trellis' draped with wisteria, brick paths and stone retaining walls. A large deck and brick patio is surrounded by oak trees and is perfect for outdoor entertaining. It features built-in seating and gas grill, chaise lounges, and two outdoor dining tables.

The three-car garage is built into the hillside. One garage bay for parking or storage is provided for guest use. There is parking for two additional cars at the top of the driveway in the turnout, and overnight on-street parking is allowed.

The property is located on one-acre, and there is a separate studio. The owner may occasionally spend a night or two there during guest stays.

*Please note that some of the rooms (including the master bedroom and the 4th bedroom/office area) in the home do not have window coverings in order to take advantage of the garden views. Sleep masks are provided.

Lovely gracious home with lots of room and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We had a family celebration here and it was the perfect home with lots of room, gorgeous views and many places to enjoy sitting outdoors. Gardens were beautiful and the trees were amazing. Kim was very kind and welcomed us with a bottle of wine and scones! The home is tastefully decorated, clean and beautifully cared for.

Reunion House

  • 5 of 5

Our reunion group had a wonderful stay at Casa Colina. There is plenty of room for a group both outside and inside and the quiet, secluded nature of the place is well suited for get-togethers and conversation. Kim keeps the fridge and larder well stocked so that when cooking you don't have to shop for the condiments and other little things.

Our Carmel vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our bridge group had an outstanding stay in this lovely house, which perfectly suited us! We did lots of sightseeing, but also played bridge inside and out, had dinner there one night, and we loved the openness and layout of the house.

Location, location, location they say in real estate. Casa Colina is quiet, secluded, and surrounded by lush gardens in

all directions. It is nicely appointed with a spirit of generosity. Kim was committed to our satisfaction and comfort

from the beginning. For example, when we had a minor circuit breaker problem, boom - there was an electrician at our door and the problem was fixed immediately. It is the little things, like small bouquets in little vaces

in each room. I've stayed in many B&Bs and Airb&bs - this is at the top of my list.

Our stay at Casa Colina was quite nice. Beautiful garden areas and a good location.

The home was very comfortable, tastefully decorated and arranged, complete in every way, and the owner was very welcoming and pleasant. We would like to make a return visit some day in the not too distant future.
