Carmel Highlands Ocean Front Living High Above Wildcat Cove
Have you always dreamed of owning a California ocean front home in one of the most expensive areas in the United States? Maybe having an A list celebrity as a neighbor? Carmel Highlands serves as the gateway to the beautiful Big Sur coast and offers a lifestyle of peace, solitude and scenic beauty. No wonder many celebrities live or vacation in the Carmel Highlands and here is your chance to own an incredible Ocean front property in Carmel Highlands.
Perched high on a bluff above the steep walls of scenic Wildcat Cove sits a sophisticated contemporary home designed by prominent architect Charlie Rose. Views of the Pacific Ocean’s blue glow are evident from the moment you walk into the stone covered courtyard & garden. You know the architect did a fabulous job of taking full advantage of the site when the anticipation of the views to come continue to build as you enter the home. Now the floor to ceiling windows are framing beautiful scenes of the incredible Wildcat Cove below…A voice inside whispers, “I could live here.” And who wouldn’t want to?
The home is laid out in a large “U” with primarily the water views to the outside of the “U” and the serene courtyard to the inside. Although the exterior walls are mostly glass, the home feels private and even cozy. Although the home is surrounded by Cypress trees and even redwoods, there is plenty of natural light being let in from the outside and the home feels light and bright throughout, a Charlie Rose hallmark.
The India stone covered courtyard treatment carries right through the front door bring the outdoor space inside and making this already spacious 5400 square foot home feel even more open and spacious. The living room has a high vaulted ceiling and pulls you right to the opening of Wildcat Cove to the west. There is a large marble covered fireplace on the wall to the left, which will take the chill out of a foggy night on the coast but doesn’t take away from your view. Several pillars divide the living room from the formal dining room and hallway.
There is a very large kitchen with all one needs to cook elaborate meals over the holidays or to whip something up for a stay in affair. Sub Zero Fridge, gas cook top, double ovens, a warmer, double sinks, a dishwasher and a built in microwave, a large island and tones of cabinet space…It’s all there.
There is a breakfast nook nestled between the kitchen and the family room with fantastic views of Wildcat Cove and the cliffs. The family room is comfy as it should be with high ceilings and open beams, a wet bar, a stone lined fireplace and magnificent views of the cove below. There is a small office and a powder room as well.
The best views in the house are from the master bedroom in my opinion! This room is spacious with tons of natural light through the wall of windows to the west and like the living room has a fireplace to the south. The master bathroom is almost as large as the master bedroom and includes a large walk in closet, dual vanities, a soaking tube and a walk in shower.
There are two additional bedrooms, each with their own baths. The larger of the two has a fireplace and its own private entry making it great for a care taker or guest quarters. There is an office with a built in desk and cabinets.
Additional amenities include a laundry room with a sink and a small doggy shower, an additional powder room off of the bedroom hallway, a two car garage and a private gate.

Carmel Highlands Real Estate
Carmel Highlands real estate is an eclectic mix just like the rest of the Monterey peninsula and surrounding areas. The primary difference is there is more waterfront property available here in the Highlands and a lot more potential for ocean views. The size and prices in the highlands and the rest of the south coast of Monterey County vary greatly with homes starting well under $1M and going up to the tens of thousands of dollars. A true Carmel Highlands waterfront home will start in the $2M range for a tear down and quickly go up from their depending on view, size, privacy, etc.
