This Cotswold-inspired Carmel stone cottage was built in 1925 and is in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea. A tall ivy hedge surrounds the fully fenced property, offering complete privacy, with shops, restaurants and theaters just steps away. Guests are welcomed by the murmuring fountain and beautiful cottage garden. Stone and brick pathways wind to the front steps and the original door, handmade of weathered wood and wrought iron, which opens to a large light-filled room with soaring ceilings and original wood floors. Beside the old Carmel-stone fireplace, is one of many cozy sitting areas located within the cottage. Bedrooms and bathrooms are all newly decorated luxuriously with designer linens and towels. This home offers a fully appointed kitchen, a breakfast bar for two and dining area that seats four to six. Cozy outdoor seating is perfect for morning brunch and coffee to evenings of wine or s'mores around a warm and inviting fire pit.
