When you pass through the gates of this private estate, you will immediately know that you have found one of the most extraordinary homes on the Monterey Peninsula. An oak tree-lined circular drive leads to a flower-filled entry courtyard to this one-of-a-kind, 5000+ square foot home with separate guest house. The lot is uniquely situated, boasting 180-degree ocean views that wrap around to the surrounding oak-studded hills and then to the twinkling lights of Salinas. Soaring exposed wood-beam ceilings, a 20-foot Carmel stone fireplace and an open floor plan provide the perfect landscape for living and entertaining in a spectacular setting.
A striking, recently updated kitchen is at the heart of the home, featuring custom fired marble slab counters, an oversized hammered copper sink, a Viking range and dual ovens, that are convection, standard and microwave. The breakfast room overlooks the 800 square foot travertine panoramic bay view terrace, which is accessed via fully fold back Nano doors to allow seamless entertaining. An outdoor kitchen with a DCS grill, sink, refrigerator, extensive stainless-steel storage and a built-in stone dining table anchors one end of the terrace, while a hand- hewn copper firepit anchors the other. A romantic grape vine covered arbor completes this space designed for both superb outdoor dining and simply enjoying the spectacular ocean sunsets.
I invite you to come see the numerous amenities this home has to offer, including a 900-bottle wine cellar, li- brary/home office, an impeccably maintained private tennis court that can be converted to accommodate a 250- person outdoor event and a double cistern water collection system. All of this is situated on one of Bay Ridge's premier oak-studded lots of over 4.6 acres. Vineyard and infinity pool opportunities.
