Escape to the perfect beach cottage. Quaint and contemporary marry seamlessly in this updated 1,400-sq-ft Carmel home located within walking distance of the village and minutes by car to the beach. This sea-themed 2-bedroom, 2-bath, situated in a quiet tree-lined neighborhood, combines the coziness of a cottage with a modern upscale Pottery Barn sophistication.
Enter the property through a vine-covered arch into an enclosed front area with a brick path and driveway bordered with roses, hydrangea, bougainvillea and other flowering plants. Two wrought-iron chairs with comfortable cushions provide a private place to sit on the front porch and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of coffee during Carmel’s wonderful cool mornings and evenings.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider or wine, passes from the Famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, passes to the Scheid Winery tasting room, 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 -- organic cotton bathrobes and oversized towels -- and plenty of beach gear for the entire family.
An open floor plan imparts a spacious feeling to the combined living and dining rooms, which feature a granite-faced gas fireplace with, pitched beamed ceilings, Hubbardton Forge artisan light fixtures and hardwood floors topped with a natural hemp area rug. A 40-inch HD LCD TV mounted over the fireplace allows you to watch a movie with the Blue Ray DVD and enjoy a fire at the same time. An earthy palette of sage green, tan and sea-foam blue is offset by crisp white furnishings – a sleeper sofa, arm chair and sleeper twin ottoman serving as a coffee table. Chenille throw pillows with starfish designs, distressed side tables and sea-themed art all help create a beach cottage feel.
A renovated contemporary chef’s dream kitchen is a showpiece with its black Corian counter-tops, beautiful walnut cabinetry and top-quality appliances including a gas range and stainless steel side-by side refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. A generous selection of dishware and table linens allow you to entertain as if you were at home. Dine 48-inch round table with a mahogany top and sage scroll legs that seats four.
A sunlit breakfast nook off the kitchen has a white bistro table and bench alongside a bay window, perfect for 2 people to sit and relax over morning tea or coffee and croissants. Two metal counter stools provide another eating spot at the kitchen counter. A spotless remodeled full white bathroom with shower is just off the kitchen as is a stacking washer and dryer.
The living room and bedrooms are bathed in light from French doors that open to a wraparound deck with outdoor furnishings that include a teak table that can seat 8 and a gas grill. The deck overlooks a large enclosed private pet-friendly back yard with roses, hydrangea, azaleas and other flowering plants. You are beautifully set up to entertain or just lie back, relax and breathe in the fresh ocean air.
The master bedroom has a king with Memory Foam topper fitted with luxury linens and an ocean-themed duvet comforter in ivory and ocean-reef colors. The king can be converted to 2 twins. A second bedroom has a white cottage day bed with an ivory coverlet, sage-green shams and sea-foam blue and green accents. It can stay a single or be made into a king with Memory Foam topper or 2 twins. Total sleeping capacity is 7: 6 adults and 1 child.
The sparkling remodeled full bathroom has a tub/shower, old-fashioned beadboard wainscoting, brushed nickel fixtures and sand-colored limestone tile on the floor and around the tub. Plush white spa towels with sage-green accents complete the picture. Parking for 1 car in a carport; additional on-street parking available for 2 more cars.
