You'll be enchanted from the moment you lay eyes on this 2-story, 1268 square feet, 4-bedroom 2-bath cottage with its warm wheat-colored stucco exterior accented with soft-green shutters and trim, white picket fence and front yard planted in colorful flowering natives. The entire home has been updated to perfection and is furnished with a casually sophisticated decor.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complementary wine and cheese, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear.
The great room features a painted-brick gas fireplace, dark hardwood floors, sand-colored walls, white draperies and a white ceiling crisscrossed with dark brown beams. Arched doors and decorative accents throughout add to the magic of this unique cottage.
Relax and enjoy conversations in a cozy living room with two comfortable white sofas, an upholstered arm chair and an ottoman that serves as a coffee table or extra seating, all atop a floral area rug. There is a 42" HDTV with Blu-Ray Disc Player, a small video collection and a small library.
Enjoy meals in the nearby dining area, which has a pine-topped farm-style table, a bench plus 6 chairs with patterned cushions to seat 8.
The newly renovated kitchen is gorgeous - equipped with everything a chef could want to create gourmet meals. Among the features: white granite counter tops, gray cabinetry, a central island, white tile floors in a honeycomb pattern and an antiqued hutch. Gleaming stainless steel appliances include a gas range in the central island, an oven, side-by-side refrigerator and a dishwasher. A nook holds a stacking washer-dryer behind a wooden door. French doors from the kitchen, offering peeks of the bay, open to a side yard with lawn enclosed by a 6’ redwood fence. A gas grill and a table for 4 are provided.
A small pass-through bathroom between the kitchen and a sitting room has a shower with white honeycomb tile, a free-standing ceramic sink and a commode.
Relax with a book on a white wrought-iron trundle bed in a small adjacent room that could be a 4th bedroom. The trundle, which has a white coverlet and embroidered pillows, can sleep 2. This room also includes a wing-back chair, two small wrought iron tables, a wrought-iron lamp and a floral area rug.
The 2nd story has 3 bedrooms and 1 bath. The handsomely appointed master has glimpses of the water between trees. The bedroom is furnished with a queen with luxury linens, blue and white coverlet and shams, bedside tables with wrought iron bases shaped like tree branches, an antique oak dresser, 2 small trunks, and a carved-wood-framed chair upholstered in a white and blue floral pattern.
The bathroom has a small shower with tan and brown checkerboard-patterned tiles, a white tiled floor and a free-standing ceramic sink with an oval mirror.
Bedroom 2 has two twins which convert to a king with Memory Foam topper, with luxury linens, a patterned area rug and 2 white dressers.
