Where Bohemians and Billionaires stroll the beach.
Carmel is a village that is known for its timeless appeal with quaint cottages, unique shops, delightful cafes and unparalleled scenery. It has continued to please generations of visitors and residents alike. It is touted world-wide as an ideal place to live. Founded in 1902, Carmel is known for its picturesque scenery and rich artistic history. A town once dominated by writers, poets and actors, Carmel-by- the-Sea retains a whimsical charm unlike anywhere else while offering some of the most unique luxury real estate on the coast.
The Carmel real estate market offers a unique assortment of homes ranging from quaint cottages near town to high-end beachfront properties. The rare mix of architecture found in Carmel makes for an exceptional assortment of properties that await discovery for a discerning buyer shopping for their dream home. Tim Allen has long learned the intimate knowledge of the nooks and crannies of the various Carmel neighborhoods. From Carmel Village to The Point, from Carmel Woods to the Meadows, this is where Tim thrives. Throughout the time he has spent in Carmel he has restored a historic Carmel Landmark, known as “Seastone”, purchased countless homes for renovation, and has handled more Carmel transactions than any other agent.
