About Barry, Owner at Carmel Retreats
I've been coming to Carmel for over 15 years and find something new to explore each time. Originally from the midwest, I left the harsh winters behind and moved to California to pursue a career in design. Carmel is my refuge from the buzz of daily life and I hope it will be yours, too. I've been renovating and renting fully furnished homes for almost 20 years and this original style beach cottage in downtown Carmel is definitely my favorite so far.
Why Barry, Owner at Carmel Retreats chose Golden Rectangle
I had been looking for a home in Carmel for years, and I bought this one the day it came on the market. It's one of the original homes of historic Carmel, made entirely of old growth redwood - you just can't find homes like this one anymore. Plus the double sized lot with some of the oldest Oak trees in Carmel make this property serene and calming. The owners were a couple in their early 90's who got married when they were twenty and lived in this house their entire lives, raising their children and hosting their grand kids for decades. Inside one of the cabinets in the laundry room you can still find an original fruit drying rack which I left intact for the sake of history. That rack is what inspired some of the farmhouse touches I used throughout the renovation such as the barn style light fixtures, vintage Edison filament bulbs, and antique rim latch hardware on the doors.
What makes this House unique
This is one of the earliest homes in Carmel, restored and updated with modern amenities. You'll be right in the heart of downtown Carmel, close to all the boutique shops and restaurants and a short stroll down to the beach but tucked away on a private street behind a grove of old, twisty oak trees.
