Enter this beautiful 4-bedroom, 3-bath stucco house through its wrought-iron gate and courtyard patio. The garage doors, gate, archway over the front door, and front window all feature a graceful curve, evoking the sunny Mediterranean. Inside, oak hardwood floors with an inlaid design open to the living room, with its vaulted ceiling, skylights, ceiling fan, and distinctive exposed beams, with track lighting embedded in them.
The living room looks out through double sliding doors across a tiled patio to a panoramic view of Monterey Bay. On one side of the living room is an adjoining carpeted den with recessed lights, a cozy fireplace and mantel and built-in cabinets, looking out on the spectacular view. On the other side, taking advantage of the same view and continuing the hardwood floors and recessed lights, are the dining area and kitchen. The kitchen has granite counters, white cabinets with chrome hardware, a gourmet gas stove, sleek stainless steel appliances (including a built-in microwave, trash compactor, and double ovens), and a wine refrigerator. An office/den, guest bedroom, full bath with an enclosed shower and wainscoting detail, and tiled laundry room with a utility sink complete the downstairs layout.
Downstairs are three more bedrooms, all carpeted and with recessed lighting and ample closet space. The luxurious master suite has a master bath that features custom tile work on the counters, floors, Jacuzzi tub, and shower areas. The walk-in shower has a built-in bench and cut glass detail. The two sink areas are separated, each with its own counter space, lighting, and cabinetry. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom with custom inlay tile work, wood cabinets, and a shower/tub combination. The family room opens to the Trex type deck through sliding doors, with views of the bay over the treetops. There is also a large laundry room with a multi use sink and shelves for extra soap and pantry area.
The hillside perch turns every spot on the ocean-facing side of this home into a room with a panoramic view, uninterrupted by anything except the tops of the trees below. The tiled patio off the living/dining areas and deck off the downstairs bedrooms add even more options for enjoying the coastline’s constantly changing color schemes. The fenced backyard has plenty of room for gardening. This home truly offers a “vista del mar” a view of the sea to be enjoyed from the elegant, beautifully crafted rooms of this gracious Mediterranean-style home.
