Bird’s-eye views and a sense of serenity are the hallmarks of this Carmel home, with its main living space on the second floor among the treetops. The house is an easy walk to the galleries and restaurants of Carmel-by-the-Sea, but at the same time has sense of privacy in a quiet neighborhood.
Owned by a world traveler, the house features numerous unique touches, such as three clocks in the kitchen showing the time on three continents, a world map in the office area, and fine art photography throughout the home.
Guests who climb the home’s circular staircase from the first floor entry will be greeted with vistas of native live oaks, Monterey pines and coast redwoods.
The house is a 10-minute car ride to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, 10 minutes to golfing and dining in Pebble Beach or Pacific Grove, 20 minutes to Carmel Valley wineries and restaurants, and a half-hour to the natural wonders of Big Sur.
The living room, kitchen and dining area flow together in an open floor plan, with an adjacent office offering a desk and a small couch that folds flat into a full size bed for an additional sleeping area for 1 child. The dining room table seats six, and counter seating is also in the kitchen.
The focal point of the comfortable living room is a gas fireplace, surrounded by a chaise sectional, leather armchair and 50-inch HDTV.
The kitchen has clean, modern lines, updated appliances, granite countertops and a large wooden table that can be used for serving or casual dining. A small deck off the kitchen has seating for two.
The master bedroom suite has a king-sized bed and a 42-inch HDTV. The attached bathroom has ample counter space, and a large glass-enclosed shower.
The guest bedroom has queen bed and the adjacent bathroom has a combination tub/shower.
Beneath the house is the two-car carport, where beach gear or other necessities can also be stored. A laundry room with washer and dryer is available on the first floor.
