Only 31 properties can be found on the prestigious Pebble Beach so it is rare that one ever comes up for sale. Pebble Beach is one of the most exclusive spots in stunning Monterey, boasting world class golf courses, amazing automobile events, and plenty of VIP opportunities for those who love a dash of social glamor in their day to day life. Pebble Beach is also an unincorporated community, another factor that marks it out as someplace truly special. This ocean front estate perched on Pescadero Point delivers impressive vistas from every room – allowing you to gaze upon Carmel Bay, Point Lobos, and the green glazed Pebble Beach Golf Links. With five beds and baths, there is also plenty of space for sweet summer fun in the golden glow of the California sun.
The impressive estate almost has an Italian villa feel with its long-pillared terrace, and elegant cream coloring’s and soaring ceilings, peppered with natural resources like wood and marble. Large picture windows can be found in every room – offering glimpses into the blue and green, inviting the ocean light to pour in across the open floor.
It’s the open floorplan that brings the California vibe into this home. As soon as you step in the hallway – the rooms open like the pages of a story book, showcasing a formal dining room that seeps into a lovely lounge – framed by a generous fireplace. The soft glow of the lamps, the hanging chandeliers, and the vision of having a roaring fire when those ocean storms roll in immediately makes you feel at home. The wall of windows pulls your eyes to the sea, and the skylights bring in a wash of even more natural light.
The gourmet kitchen delivers another wow factor with its smooth marble in shades of white accented by glimpses of gold and distressed wood. The exposed brick and stone touches that deliver a motif throughout the home add another layer to the Mediterranean style feel and the informal dining space in the kitchen is great for nurturing a morning coffee.
The expansive master suite also boasts a studious sitting room and office, once again boasting a similar color scheme of polished wood, creams and warm honey tones to match the sunlight. The closed fireplace with its fat armchairs whispers of sinking down in sheer comfort with a good book.
There are four ocean suites in total, but this one is by far the grandest. That’s not to say the others aren’t impressive in nature, and there is no feeling better than falling asleep to the sound of surf. Bathrooms boast oversized sink down tubs with ocean views bedecked in clean white marble and porcelain.
The gardens and outside space deliver a Zen like feel with their big granite boulders, flush of tropical green, old oak trees, and water features. The al fresco spaces offer informal dining options and plenty of space for shade lounging under the pergola, again gifting that seamless blend of outdoor to indoor space which is exactly what you want in California. The generous infinity pool seems to melt into the horizon and once more, you will never tire of that view.
For those who want to live thoroughly embracing the ocean, to watch the waves roll in and see the seals splash on the rocks – you couldn’t ask for a more comfortable location on the sophisticate shores of Pebble Beach.
