A rose-covered arch over the gate makes a picture-perfect entry for this this charming shingle-sided cottage, just a short walk from the beach and close to everything that Carmel-by-the-Sea has to offer.
Blossoming gardens and a generous deck at the rear of the 1,500-square-foot home make it easy to enjoy the outdoors, where you can hear the whispering of waves nearby, and see beautiful ocean views from the upper story.
The three-bedroom, 2.5-bath home in a quiet neighborhood is surrounded by a fence and hedges that lend it privacy, and also make it a great place to bring four-legged companions.
The residence is also just a few minutes by car, or a 20-minute walk, from dining and shopping in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, 30 minutes to the natural wonders of Big Sur, and 15 minutes to the quaint Victorians and breathtaking ocean views of Pacific Grove, or to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row.
A flagstone walkway leads through a garden of roses, ferns and flowers, embellished with river rock and abalone shells, with paths branching off to the entryway, porch and deck. Interiors in rich autumn colors are enhanced with antique furniture, artwork, and décor with coastal flair.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, 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, spa robes and beach gear.
The entryway opens into a small library/den with local books on history and nature. A twin futon in this room can be used as seating or as a sleeping area, and a convenient half bath is also nearby.
The adjacent kitchen includes white tile countertops, a gas stove, and hardwood floors, and contains a seating area that looks out onto the back deck. The wood deck has patio seating and a gourmet gas grill, and is the perfect place to barbecue or to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening.
There is access to the deck from the living room, which has a wood-burning Carmel stone fireplace, comfortable seating and a 50-inch HDTV.
Also on the first floor is a bedroom with queen bed, and a full bath with antique-style fixtures, shower, and pedestal sink. A stacked washer-dryer is also available next to the kitchen.
On the second floor, a master suite includes a bedroom with king bed, as well as a large rec room that’s ideal for hanging out with the family and playing games or watching movies on the 50-inch HDTV.
