High on a beautiful hillside, situated on three hilly acres, is this beautiful home with breathtaking views. There is not a room in this home that does not have a stunning view. To the east one overlooks the Santa Lucia Mountains, to the south Los Padres National Forest, and to the west the beautiful valleys and hills toward Carmel-by-the-Sea. The home also overlooks beautiful Stonepine Resort and Equestrian Center. It is not unusual to awaken to the sound of the gentle thumping of hooves and the neighing of horses. Horseback riding is also available at nearby Holman Ranch.
The home is a three bedroom, three bath, interior Tuscan-style home. Many custom touches, such as a 60 inch television, the finest in faux finishes, and a gourmet kitchen abound. The kitchen boasts amenities such as Wolff/Bosch/Kitchen Aid appliances. It is finished with granite countertops, tile and travertine floors. Large exterior decking provides a panoramic view and a fully functioning outdoor bar for entertaining with a patio heater for the (rare) cool evenings outdoors. The other levels of the home offer decks and alcoves for private sittings. The stunning entry of pavers, pergolas, and foyer welcome you to the beginning of a peaceful vacation.
This home is approximately twenty minutes to Carmel-by-the-Sea, which is known for its dog-friendly beach, stunning views with unparalleled shopping. Several golf courses are nearby, including Carmel Valley Ranch, Quail Lodge, Rancho Canada, Pebble Beach, and Laguna Seca. Carmel Valley Village is home to many fine wine tasting rooms and elegant dining abounds throughout the Village.
Owners, Mike and Cindy Thatcher, live nearby and will be happy to assist guests with sightseeing, dining, Aquarium passes, and any other need that may arise.
Mike and Cindy Thatcher have lived in Carmel Valley for over thirty years. They are both involved in many community activities and in addition to working full time, they volunteer their time through Carmel Valley Community Chapel, Carmel Valley Kiwanis, Therapy Dogs International, and the SPCA of Monterey County.
Cindy purchased this house in 2004
We chose to buy this home because we have always been drawn to homes with beautiful views, away from the fog, yet a short driving distance to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We love the rural feeling and sense of community that only Carmel Valley provides to us. We are so close to wedding destinations, wine tasting, and beautiful weather!
High above the fog, quiet, cozy and, have we mentioned the views?! We also enjoy the wonderful relationship with some close neighbors. They easily recognize the kindness of visitors! We strive to adhere to the homeowner rules.
Fifteen minutes to Laguna Seca Raceway, thirty minutes to Monterey Bay Aquarium, Pebble Beach, Cannery Row, and Fisherman's Wharf. One hour to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and to Big Sur. Golfing is as close as ten minutes away! There are over ten courses within thirty minutes, such as Carmel Valley Ranch, Quail Lodge, Pebble Beach, Poppy Hills, Syglass, Spanish Bay, and more. Hiking at Beautiful Garland Ranch is close by. Carmel Valley Village now has approximately 15 wine tasting rooms, including Talbott's who makes my favorite Kali Hart chardonnay!
