There’s just something special about a “Charlie Rose Home.” The late architect was known for designing homes in the Carmel and Monterey area in perfect accord with the region’s much-lauded natural surroundings. His hallmarks – maximizing the views to the outside, natural light filtering in from floor-to-ceiling windows, a grand statement, and a sense of anticipation from the moment you enter the home – kept Charlie Rose in the favor of Carmel’s well-to-do, including 1950s and 1960s icon Doris Day, who worked with him to expand her sunny 1960 retreat on Carmel Valley Road.
This 1997-built home is another Charlie Rose architectural masterpiece that celebrates the master architect’s meditation on light and connection to nature. Set in the highly sought-after gated community of Macomber Estates, the 8,489 square-foot residence has been positioned to take advantage of jaw-dropping views of Pebble Beach Golf Course, Stillwater Cove, Carmel Beach, Point Lobos, and the endless Pacific Ocean beyond.
The home’s superior quality of construction is evident from the moment you pass through its grand entrance. Vaulted ceilings, revealing elegant skylights that span throughout the entire main level, provide an incredible sense of volume, light, and openness.
Walls of glass and expansive balconies accentuate the unbelievable views. All of this is set against the backdrop of beautiful stone and hardwood floors with radiant heat, custom art installations, and statues. Four bedrooms, four full baths, and two half baths complete the home, along with a theater, custom fountain, wine room, two wet bars, new lighting and security systems, and a luxurious primary bedroom suite with a jetted tub to soak in the sunsets. A 3-car garage adds to the experience of the property. Over 2.7 acres of meticulously manicured grounds surround the home, making it one of the most incomparable properties to come on the market in Pebble Beach in years.
