#3276 Lovely Carmel Home with Distant Ocean View & Optional Guest House. Pets Considered.

Welcome to "Restful Refuge"!

Imagine yourself lounging on a spacious wooden deck watching a luminous sunset on the horizon over the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean and you get a foretaste of what to expect from this utterly charming 1,200-square-foot home situated in a lovely Carmel neighborhood. Bright and cheerful with a wood fireplace and hardwood floors throughout, this secluded two-bedroom two-bath indoor/outdoor house is surrounded by lush gardens on a large enclosed property. A delightful Guest Studio Cottage that sleeps 2-3 can be rented together with the main house or separately. (see Guest House Property Description below) The ocean and Point Lobos are visible from the living room and master bedroom. The upbeat Pottery Barn beach décor, with its white, chocolate and robin's-egg-blue color scheme and seashore-themed accents, will lift your spirits, making you eager to return to your home base after exploring the surrounding sights.

Everything you will want to see and do is nearby. It is a short walk to Carmel River Beach (a locals' favorite) and the Carmel Mission, and minutes by car to the shops and galleries of downtown Carmel, and the chic Crossroads and Barnyard shopping areas at the mouth of Carmel Valley. Monterey and Pacific Grove are a 10-minute drive, and Big Sur is half an hour away.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and sparkling cider, spa passes from the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey that recently underwent a $2 million renovation, Scheid Wine passes and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, slippers and over-sized towels, and beach gear.

The outdoors is as much a draw as the indoors in this special home. Beauty abounds everywhere you look on the grounds, with stately Cypresses and sturdy oaks bordering the perimeter, a gorgeous plot of rose bushes at the entrance, and lush native plants throughout the interior garden with its graveled paths and three-tiered fountain. A spectacular expansive private deck off the living room and master bedroom is equipped with three teak loungers and an outdoor table with green shade umbrella for enjoying evening cocktails or al fresco meals. A grape-stake fence surrounding the property provides privacy.

You pass a small white old-fashioned wood stove -- the epitome of warm welcome when lit with a crackling fire -- as you enter the front door and walk into the cozy combined living and dining rooms with its garden and ocean views. French doors open out to the deck. When you're not mesmerized by the vista, you can play cards, watch the flat-screen TV with Blue-Ray DVD or socialize in the cheery space, which includes a plush full sofa bed facing a whitewashed wood-burning fireplace, an overstuffed chair, a library table and a round glass table with upholstered chairs that seat four. A library of inspirational books and magazines is also provided.

A fully equipped kitchen with oak cabinetry has a gas stove, side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. You can grab a light breakfast before heading out on your day's adventures.

Wake in the morning after a tranquil night's sleep to ocean views from the master bedroom, which features a queen bed with top-quality mattress and luxurious linens and built-in shelving. Complete privacy allows you to throw open the sliding glass doors, step out onto the deck and breathe in the fresh sea air even before you dress. Adjacent is a spotless full bath with combination tub/shower completely tiled in white. A second cheerful bedroom that overlooks a rose garden can be made up as two twins or a king with a Memory Foam topper and is also fitted with luxury linens. A full bathroom down a short hall off the living room has a tub/shower and counter top that are tiled in cloudy blue.

A laundry room with outside access has a washer and dryer. Parking is available for one car in a carport. Additional parking is possible in the driveway.

"Lovely back yard with hot tub overlooking Pt. Lobos. Tastefully decorated, well stocked kitchen, light and airy, lots of windows. Perfect enclosed yard for dog. We have been coming to Carmel for years and this is one of the nicest homes we have stayed in."
