DESCRIPTION

Across from Carmel Beach and a short stroll to town, this restored 1929 M.J. Murphy Mediterranean home with unobstructed ocean views from three levels is a rare gem for the very discerning. The diligent and inspired renovation retained the original mahogany doors, S & S tile, metalwork, hardware, fixtures and fireplaces, wherever possible, with careful architectural and historic considerations. All the basic systems have been entirely replaced and the interior surfaces, millwork, beams, floors, appliances and amenities are stunning. Six bedrooms, each with a private bath as well as many unique indoor and outdoor gathering spaces. The recently redesigned and meticulously maintained grounds include several distinct outside eating areas, a serene exercise pool, gracious loggias and a protected courtyard with a fireplace and pizza oven. Spacious detached two car garage and generous off street parking are rarities in Carmel. 5,435 square feet of living space.

OTHER FEATURES

Views, exercise pool, architecturally significant.
