Views of the Santa Lucia Mountains, and a Zen-like setting, enhanced by gorgeous gardens are some of the highlights this Carmel Valley home. This getaway feels miles away from everything, but is just a few minutes from the restaurants and wine tasting rooms of Carmel Valley Village.

Built in 1951, the 2-bedroom, 2-bath post adobe residence is surrounded by intricate Mediterranean style gardens designed by well-known local landscaper Barkley Smith, which are filled with succulents, native plants and grasses. Native oaks and Monterey pines just beyond the garden add to the sense of peace and privacy. The home is located on a private street with 5 other houses.

Recently remodeled to create a distinctive look of rustic elegance, the home is just 15 minutes away from shopping and dining in Carmel-by-the-Sea, 20 minutes to Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach or Monterey, and 45 minutes from the majestic vistas of Big Sur.

Visitors pass underneath a Wisteria vine-covered trellis to enter the front door, where they’ll find a large living room and dining area, and kitchen in an open floor plan. The adobe architecture accentuates the earth-toned décor which leans toward a bohemian Big Sur feel. There is a wood stove for cool mornings and evenings and a piano that awaits to be played. This home which extends it’s invitation to well behaved dogs, has a combination of easy-care saltillo tile in the living areas and Berber carpet in the bedrooms.

Vaulted ceilings add to the ambiance, and whitewashed beams throughout the 1,600-square-foot home, put a contemporary twist on the post adobe. The living room includes a wall of windows which bring the outside feel inside, cozy seating, HDTV and a double sleeper sofa, as well as a dining room table with seating for six but can be expanded to 10 with the addition of the table leaves.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese, passes to the renowned Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes and beach gear.

The kitchen includes new GE and Whirlpool appliances and granite counter tops, as well as additional seating for two in a window nook. Skylights in the kitchen, and windows throughout, add natural light to the rooms, with garden views from bedrooms and living areas, and built-in cabinets give ample room for storage.

Rock pathways around the home lead to several outdoor seating areas, with doors from the kitchen leading to a patio area with a gas grill, and French doors from the master bedroom open onto a private patio for two with outdoor seating. It may be the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine.

The spacious master bedroom suite includes a queen bed with an upholstered headboard, as well as a bathroom with large mirror and shower stall, with stone tile throughout.

The guest bedroom has twin beds that can be converted to a king and adjacent sitting /TV area, which includes a daybed for additional sleeping options. A tiled bathroom is next door to the bedroom with a bathtub and separate shower stall.

A laundry room with washer, dryer and plenty of storage space is available. The property has fencing to keep the deer out and code activated security gate. Two mid size vehicles or three compact/small vehicles can be parked in the driveway area inside the gate.

**There is an additional fee for pets**

It was absolutely fabulous. We particularly enjoyed the very beautiful style the home was decorated in. Everything was impeccably organized. It was marvellous.
