Stoically poised above the striking, ocean-piercing cliffs of Carmel Highlands, this sanctuary showcases the raw, elemental setting as a bewitching panorama visible in unfiltered detail from almost every room of the timelessly elegant interior. The upper story, enhanced by hardwood floors and crowned by vaulted, open-beam ceilings, boasts a delicately segmented expanse of living areas and decks, that unite to form a versatile mecca of relaxation and entertainment. Mammoth slabs of Brazilian Quartzite with a leather top finish provide the kitchen with graceful form and robust function while towering windows encase the golden sunsets in spectacular fashion. The lower story hosts a palatial array of bedrooms, the paragon of which is the primary enclave that boasts a stone fireplace, private entry, sleek bathroom, massive walk-in closet, and seductive, hypnotizing views of the Pacific. Shared access to a pristine, private beach is the exclamation point on this alluring, coastal paradise.
