Carmel-by-the-Sea the way it was meant to be29 Nov 2012 4:26 PM
Many Americans harbor the fantasy of living by the sea. This is especially true in California, where the sky-blue Pacific Ocean beckons and nearby cities offer top-shelf cultural events and convenient amenities. Of course, because of this, beachside homes are an extremely precious commodity in the Golden State. As a result, when a property of this type pops up on the market, people tend to take notice.
One such home in the exclusive and world-renowned community of Carmel-by-the-Sea has just been listed on the market, and heads have already begun to turn. In fact, in many important ways, this stunning piece of luxury real estate is a breed apart from the seaside homes that often hit the market. As opposed to the relatively small houses that are traditional in such prized locations, this home features 2,588 square feet of high-class features.
With three bedrooms, two and a half baths, long stretches of wall-to-ceiling picture windows and, of course, breathtaking views, this property is truly unique. The home is set off the road by a private gated driveway and provides a secluded, quiet atmosphere - perfect for enjoying the beach on your own terms.
Of course, it is that feature - the proximity to world-renowned Carmel Beach - that truly sets this property apart from the crowd.
"The exceedingly rare attribute this property possesses is its location, plain and simple," said Sotheby's International Realty listing agent Adam Moniz. "There are only a small handful of homes that literally touch the sand of Carmel Beach, and we are fortunate to now be able to make one of those extraordinary homes available for purchase. Simply open the door, and you have arrived at the beach."
For a different sort of recreational hobby, this home is also in a prime location, as it is just a stone's throw from historic Pebble Beach Golf Links. In fact, some of the home's large windows offer excellent views of this world-famous golf course.
Although the home exudes a private, miles-away-from-it-all atmosphere, it is still close to some of California's beloved landmarks. Residents who long for the hustle and bustle of city life will find that, with San Francisco only about two hours away, this home offers the perfect balance between resort-like seclusion and easy access to one of the country's most cherished cities.
Not everyone gets the chance to live near the ocean, but those who do typically cherish the experience. This exclusive Sotheby's International Realty property could be your ticket to one of life's true pleasures.
