Property description

This extraordinary home combines a love of nature and with luxury to create an environment that captures the essence of California coast living and its indoor-outdoor orientation designed to take full advantage of these secluded and breathtaking surroundings. Casa de la Contenta will give you a taste for what it is to live in Big Sur, a lifestyle that combines a spirit of adventure and nature with a passion for the unparalleled natural beauty.
You will sigh with “contentment” the moment you drive through the private gate on to this beautiful property. Step into the light-filled entryway and experience the soothing elegance and unparalleled 260 degree ocean views of this immaculate 3-bedroom, 3-bath home nestled within the grounds of New Brighton State Beach. A calm neutral palette is woven throughout this handsome single-level house, imparting a sense of unity to the restrained simplicity of the architecture and décor.
The brand new and contemporary gourmet kitchen features granite counter tops, top of the line appliances and custom cabinetry which is a standout feature of the home. Enjoy indoor-outdoor views and interact with others in the dining room, or in the outdoor BBQ area, complete with Rumsford stone fireplace and outdoor kitchen. Whether you prefer to dine simply or prepare more elaborate gourmet meals, everything you need is provided, including two Wolfe ovens, a six burner gas range, SubZero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher and two sinks (one with filtered drinking water) as well as separate bar area complete with two wine refrigerators. Discriminating chefs will appreciate the vast selection of dishes, wine glasses, sharpened knives, platters, cooking and bakeware, utensils and accessories provided. A large selection of cookbooks and cooking magazines are on hand to inspire you.
The living room is bathed in light from the floor to ceiling windows that look out on to the wraparound deck and Capitola Bay beyond. The living room features a centralized gas fireplace with artistic brick outlay in muted neutral tones of yellow, tan, and peach to accents the coloring of the designer furniture which includes two cozy oversized reading chairs and plush sofa … perfect for curling up on during a foggy morning! Step outside onto the deck and be welcomed by an outdoor seating for 6, lounge chairs for 4, a chiminea, and two shade umbrellas. Take a long soak in Japanese soaking tub which offers 260 degrees of unparalleled ocean views from Capitola to Monterey, Pacific Grove, and the famous 17 Mile Drive at Pebble Beach.
The master bedroom features a queen sized bed and fireplace and TV, with an extra large walk-in shower equipped with three rain-shower heads. The master bathroom features his and her vanity areas, separate water closet and is bathed in light from the giant skylight and warmed by the neutral colors in the porcelain and granite. A generous walk-in closet is available for your personal belongings.
The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and en suite lovely and bright bathroom with stone shower.
The third bedroom doubles as a den, and features a sunny atrium with queen sized day bed. There are shelves of books for your perusal, and a collection of DVD’s to watch on the 55” wall mount HDTV.

A 5 minute walk through the woods by trail within New Brighton State Park will take you to the beach or when the tide is out, to the village of Capitola.
Enjoy your morning coffee while watching the Pacific Ocean locals frolic in their habitat, you may see humpback whales, dolphins, sea otters, surfers, paddle boarders, ships and much more.
