Monterey Peninsula, Northern California

Carmel Highlands

A few short miles south of Carmel, along the winding Pacific Coast Highway, are the Carmel Highlands. Homes in the Highlands sit above the sea, and from their sheltered perch, many have enviable views of the dramatic and ever-changing coastline. Easily accessible to both the natural wonders of Big Sur and the amenities of the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel Highlands real estate offers the perfect combination of seclusion and convenience. The area also boasts some of the region's most stunning homes, as well as a small old-style gas station and general store along the highway. Across from the Highlands and stretching along the Pacific Ocean is the Point Lobos State Reserve, called "the greatest meeting of land and water in the world" by revered local poet Robinson Jeffers.
