Envision upscale Ralph Lauren elegance blended with more casual Pottery Barn livability and you get a feel for this spacious 3-story Carmel home offering the perfect setting for multi-generational family gatherings or couples traveling together. With 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, this lovely dwelling -- located in a beautiful residential neighborhood within walking distance of Carmel and just blocks from the ocean -- can comfortably accommodate 10-12 adults.
A short flight of stairs through a shade garden, beneath an oak and a towering pine, leads to a Carmel stone walkway and a few more steps up to a porch that extends the length of the second story. Enter through a black double-door ornamented with gold whales' tails into a small foyer that opens immediately to a great room that comprises the living room, dining room and kitchen.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in Monterey, tickets for a tasting at Scheid Winery and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush bathrobes and over-sized towels, and beach gear.
Sumptuous yet comfortable, the great room, with its hardwood floors, crown molding, plantation shutters and limestone gas fireplace, is the perfect setting for entertaining at cocktails or dinner parties or just gathering loved ones together for delicious meals and lively conversation. A rich palette of crimson, mustard and other fall colors are used in the handsome traditional furnishings that include a chocolate-colored sectional sofa.
Any professional chef would covet the gorgeous kitchen, with its large rectangular central island with 4 stools, amber-hued granite counter tops and Thomasville wooden cabinetry. Everything needed for preparing gourmet meals, including a stainless steel countertop gas range and double oven, side-by-side refrigerator and beautiful dishware and linens, is provided. An expandable mahogany wooden dining table can seat 8. Get-togethers can also spill out to an enclosed flower-filled deck with table and chairs for 6, an umbrella and lounge chairs. A path from the deck leads to a fenced back yard with flowering shade plants. Pets are welcome.
Just off the living/dining area is a den stocked with books and a sleeper sofa that can sleep 2. French doors behind a Shoji screen lead to the deck.
The house has 2 spectacular master suites -- one on the third and one on the second floor -- that in many ways are similar, although the décor in each is distinctive. Both have king beds with luxury linens including comforters with duvets, throws and decorative pillows, gas fireplaces, wall-to-wall carpeting, walk-in closets, Shoji screens on the windows, flat-screen TVs and views out over rooftops to pine and oak trees in a nearby undeveloped canyon.
The third-story master, which has a color scheme of burnt sienna and mustard, has a desk for a computer, a reading chair and a wall of cabinets. The third-story master bath, which features beautiful Thomasville cabinetry and sand-colored tiling, features a soaking tub with jets. The second-story master, which has French doors that open to the deck, features a white four-poster bed with a chocolate and rust paisley duvet, white end tables and vanity and an upholstered bench. The second story master bathroom is similar to the one on the third story but with a large shower.
The ground level offers 2 bedrooms that would be great hide-a-ways for kids. One has a king with Memory Foam topper that can be converted to 2 twins, and the second has a cream-colored trundle bed perfect for 2 children or 1 adult. A bathroom includes a tub/shower, a separate water closet and a laundry room with washer/dryer.
Park 2 cars in a double-car garage, which has space for bicycles; 2 cars can park in the driveway.
