Sophisticated Elevated Living

Perched upon the private vistas behind the gates of Monterra, this pristine property offers harmony, balance and vitality within mother nature’s bountiful offerings. Cradled by the continuous views of the pure Monterey Peninsula, this 2.7 acre haven is enveloped by the ocean, mountains, hills, and ridgelines. The one-story architectural marvel offers over 5300 SqFt of main residence living experience. Every detail has been thoughtfully considered with visually striking lines, quality materials, and luxe design for easy modern livability. It is a fresh, elegant, timeless creation. Marrying the outdoors with its architecture, the current owners completely redesigned the outdoor landscaping with grasses, agaves, succulents and flowering drought-resistant plants, for added bond with its environment. Every room within the home leads to these newly-created outdoors.



Upon entering the centrally-located, commanding full-glass front door, one is struck by the soaring ceilings, grand fireplace and gorgeous lighting of the bright elegant living room. A majestic water feature, seen through the backyard glass doors, leads the eye to the ever-changing canvases of nature. Here, Monterey Bay glows and shimmers in color, light, and energy throughout the day and seasons. On the East side of this heart of the home, an elegant hallway leads to the expansive primary suite with fireplace, a vast dressing room and closet, a luxurious bathroom with soaking tub, and its own W/D. Adjacent to the private primary retreat is an exercise room, full bath, and a refined office with full-wall built-in cabinetry. The West side of the living experience offers the relaxed sharing spaces of an epic kitchen and family room. The dream kitchen is perfect for a grand gourmand and wine lover, with a new 300-bottle wine refrigerator, expert appliances and a huge marble island. An intimate dining room bridges the formal and functional, while the family room, open to the kitchen, is relaxed, yet chic with fireplace, media center, and sliding doors to the endless mountain views. Three private en-suite bedrooms, each with the continued beautiful light-colored wood floors, marble bathrooms, and outdoor patios, complete this in-home quality experience. Consistency of this excellence is revealed by the full-home radiant heat system, making the living experience comfy cozy. Additionally, the pristine laundry room offers marble flooring, abundant storage, and new W/D.


The huge 5+/- car garage may be seen as la pièce de résistance by a car connoisseur, as it features high ceilings, which can easily accommodate car lifts, double-sized glass doors, a charge point EV charger, large storage closets, and last but not least, brand new custom epoxy flooring throughout. 


Life on this sunny hilltop is an elevated experience, in tune with the surroundings. It is a safe haven of serenity, complemented with an exclusive Tehama social membership (tennis, pickle ball, fitness, lap pool, restaurant, etc). A golf membership to this dream golf course can also be added. As the owner of this rare perfected property, you will be 10 minutes to Carmel-by-the-Sea, Pebble Beach, and Monterey, yet privately tucked away in nature. Your forever home awaits.
