Overview

Carmel Valley Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Located on 12 acres is this 60 year-old post adobe home with 4 bedrooms & 3 bath

Residing on 12 acres lies this 60 year-old post adobe home where views are plentiful and life is inspiring. Whether soaking in the beauty of the surrounding oaks, swimming in the solar-heated pool (seasonal), sunning on the home’s expansive deck, wandering around the trails, or admiring the vineyards, you’ll know that you have touched the essence of Carmel Valley.

Unique to this property is its convenient location; just 5 miles east of Carmel-by-the-Sea and 7 miles west of Carmel Valley Village. Monterey is 12 miles away, where with 2 free Monterey Bay Aquarium passes, you can enjoy a day of sight-seeing and wandering along the coastline. The home is situated beyond the fog line and in the heart of the sunbelt. Pitched a on granite bluff 300 feet above Carmel River, the property welcomes couples, families or small groups desiring tranquility and privacy.

The 4-bedroom ranch-style home (plus office) accommodates up to 7 people comfortably and consists of two wings: one with a master bedroom and bathroom and the other with 3 bedrooms, two additional baths plus an office. Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed along with two bunk beds in the 4th bedroom. At the center of the home is the kitchen/dining/living room, all of which invite conversation and a sense of togetherness. With two wood-burning stoves located in the living room and kitchen and an additional fireplace in the master bedroom, the living area is encased in glass, allowing full sun, warmth, and light. High ceilings, wood floors, upgraded appliances add to the ambiance and functionality of the retreat.

Walk outside, and you find yourself on 12 acres, complete with hundred-year old oaks and views that are unsurpassed. Just steps from the front door is a solar-heated (seasonal) swimming pool, with adjacent bathroom, deck chairs and patio set; all perfect for sunning and entertainment. Pathways through the property provide access to an organic garden of flowers and vegetable planters. Small plots of grapes also cover parts of the property.

Located just beyond the coastal fog line, the white-sand beaches and array of restaurants and outdoor cafes of Carmel are just a few minutes away. The spectacular Big Sur Coastline beckons you to drive south 30 miles to enjoy Ventana, Nepenthe and The Post Ranch Inns. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk with beach and amusement part is just 50 miles by car.

About Robert or Barbara

We are two professionals who have raised our children on this property and are in a time and place of our lives to be able to share our home with others.

Robert or Barbara purchased this chateau / country house in 1990

Why Robert or Barbara chose Carmel Valley

When my husband first saw this property, he did not enter the house. Rather, he walked the land, observed the sweeping views, and acknowledged,'This is it.' The fact that the home is a ranch-style post adobe with a pool, deck, and plenty of space to stretch even the largest of wings, didn't matter then. Over time, we have updated much of what was in the house however the bones of the home and the view remain intact.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

What makes this house unique is the fact that it provides the best of two worlds: The countryside, weather, and ambiance of Carmel Valley along with the close proximity to Carmel-by-the-Sea, Big Sur, and beautiful Monterey Peninsula. Drive 7 miles east and you will be in the center of the wine-tasting Carmel Valley Village; drive 5 miles west and you are on the white-sand beach of Carmel. Between those sites is our home, where wine, family and friends go well with the sun and expansive views.

Just a dream...

  • 5 of 5
Pictures do not do this home justice! The feeling that you get here is just dreamy. We really didn't want to leave. The 4 bedrooms were very well appointed and one bedroom even has built-in bunk beds! Very cool for kids or adults! Barbara was a gem of a host and keeps a fascinating book shelf! The mix of 1970's California with international charm was so perfect for our all-adult reunion. I would highly recommend this home for your stay in Carmel Valley. Thank you very much Barbara!
