#3110 Beautiful Home in Serene Setting, Spacious, Near Secluded Beach
Enjoy the pleasures of both land and sea from a centrally located, 2,500-square-foot home in a quiet neighborhood on the outskirts of Carmel. Sparkling clean and freshly painted, this spacious three-bedroom, three-bath house has new carpeting throughout and an open floor plan that lends itself to congenial socializing.
A large living area -- with a wood-burning fireplace and baby grand piano -- opens up to a deck that looks out to rolling hills and a grassy meadow teeming with wildlife. A cheerful kitchen is equipped with everything needed to easily entertain 10 or more people in the adjacent dining area.
The light-filled lower level features glass doors opening up to a fenced back yard. A comfortable family room on this level, with a pull-out sofa bed, provides a separate area for the kids to play games or for TV watching.
Restful meadow views are also afforded from the first-floor master bedroom, which has a master bath with separate tub and shower. A third bedroom on the lower level has a king bed and its own bathroom. An additional bedroom and bathroom are on the first floor as well.
The house is equipped with wifi, high-speed internet, unlimited local and long-distance service, 40-inch plasma TV with DVD/VHS and a stereo system. Washer and dryer are on site as is all the equipment you will need for outdoor excursions: beach chairs, umbrellas, a picnic basket and coolers. You can cook out on a gas grill, and firewood is provided for the fireplace as well as for beach fires, which are permitted on nearby Ribera Beach. The garage is not available for cars, but there is off-street parking for two vehicles and plenty more parking on the street.
Ideal for one or more families or several couples, this is a welcoming place where you can relax and feel at home. When you arrive, you will be greeted with a personal note and a basket with a bottle of sparkling cider and sun-dried tomato pesto torta in the refrigerator and animal crackers for the kids.
For nature lovers, a 10-minute walk will take you to off-the-beaten-path places never discovered by most tourists, including Ribera Beach and Carmel River Beach, where the Carmel River empties into the ocean. Also within walking distance are the historic Carmel Mission and Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch. Point Lobos is minutes away by car.
There is a basket brimming with local information about Carmel, Carmel Valley (wine tasting country) Pebble Beach (home of the AT&T and the recent U.S. Open), Big Sur, golf (over 15 in the area), State Parks, area attractions, shopping, (Safeway, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, and Costco are all within 10 minutes), Monterey Aquarium, Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. Even if you stayed a year you could not put a dent in all the area has to offer. Once here, you will most likely be planning your return trip to this wonderful home and the Monterey Peninsula.
