About Meredith Adams
My husband and I have lived in the area for 40 years. My grandfather was charge of Dept. of Forestry at Salmon Creek in 30's when Highway 1 was being forged. He patrolled these hills on horseback, and my grandmother spent summers 'manning' the Chew's Ridge Lookout for fire protection. Somewhere in these hills lives the descendants of 'Flag' the fawn Papa rescued, and my aunt had as a pet, until he began to 'feel his oats,' and needed sanctuary to protect him from hunters. Watch for him in the park.....he wore a red dog collar! I am a Registered Nurse and continue to work on the Peninsula, but i am a farmer at heart. I have 6 new chick-lets, just about to start laying, and their handsome, overseer, a rooster, 'Charming,' named by neighbor children. he makes an alarm clock unnecessary! Due to water shortage this year, my vegetable garden will be reduced to tomatoes, but the roses are exquisite, and the field will be fallow and available for horse workouts .Our twins have left the nest and done us proud, but we miss having horses outside our bedroom window. Also, it is too beautiful an area not to share.
Meredith Adams purchased this studio in 1993
Why Meredith Adams chose Carmel Valley
Comfortable, casual accommodations with horse and hiking trails beckoning. Choose the terrain, from level to hilly. Gorgeous views and different microclimates for wildflowers. Trails with names such as Sage, Fern Canyon, Redwood Canyon, Sky....you get the idea! If horseback riding or hiking aren't your thing, there is the Village shops and restaurants to explore, or venture into Carmel- by- the -Sea or Monterey for shopping and great restaurants, and, of course the breath taking beaches.
What makes this studio unique
Everything you need within 2 miles of accommodations, much of it rideable or walkable! When we bought this house, I told my husband that we were actually buying the Park....at our doorstep. We are inland just far enough to be out of the coastal fog; common in summer. The weather is 'just right.'
The accommodations have private entrance in a wing of the house just for you. Private and quiet, except for the wildlife sounds. Friendly, safe neighborhood for walks.
