Magical Spindrift Estate - 176 Spindrift, Carmel

Built in 1920 by famed California artist, John O’Shea, as one of the first homes in the new subdivision known as “Carmel Highlands”, this oceanview villa’s magical grounds span over 3 acres of mature Monterey Cypress-studded land. The Spanish Revival home’s ~5,100 square feet were completely renovated to include such features as radiant heated floors, a gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances, including a La Cornue range, French limestone and granite countertops, a built-in BBQ area, luxurious oceanview master suite, and a Turkish bath/spa with large jacuzzi, steam room with waterfall shower, and a walk-in dry sauna. Outside there are multiple seating areas to enjoy the wonderful indoor/outdoor living and limestone steps spilling from the top of the hill past fountains, impressive fire pit area, basketball court, down to a gated entrance on Spindrift. There are also plans to expand the ocean-facing decks and add a funicular to connect the lower level to the house for easy access from the Spindrift entrance. This property has been flawlessly crafted to entertain friends and family or escape to your own private paradise by the sea.
