Dramatic Ocean Views in the Carmel Highlands
237 Highway 1, Carmel Highlands
Perched on a dramatic south-facing, oceanfront outcropping, this gated high-end Carmel Highlands coastal retreat is less than 4 miles from Carmel and offers stunning, unobstructed, year-round sunsets from its many rooms, decks, and garden alcoves.
Turning off iconic HWY 1 below the famed Highlands Hyatt, you descend into a private collection of a handful of custom homes that form your own exclusive seaside community. Come through the property gate and proceed up the gently inclined, winding driveway to this classic California coastal house with ample parking and a detached 2-car garage. As you enter through the front doors and stand in the vaulted, skylighted, grand room you’re invited to the various areas of the house or to numerous sea-view windows and outside decks. Two stories, four fireplaces, five bedrooms, and five and a half bathrooms accompany a remodeled chef’s kitchen, a breakfast sunroom, living room, dining room, workout area, and gathering loft.
This exquisite, oceanfront home in the Carmel Highlands is waiting for its new owner to put the masterstroke on this stunning Pacific Coast work of art.

ABOUT THE AREA
Carmel Highlands, located just 3.5 miles south of Carmel-by-the-Sea, is an unincorporated community within Monterey County, CA. At an elevation of 318 feet, it is also located just south of the Point Lobos State Reserve, and serves as the northern gateway of the Big Sur coastline along California State Hwy 1. It was developed in the early 1900’s by Frank Powers and Franklin Devendorf.
The neighborhood rests on a fairly steep incline affording spectacular views of the Big Sur coastline and back towards Point Lobos and Pebble Beach. Several of the properties are on the oceanfront, some with access to private coves and beaches.
Amidst the residential area, there is a gas station, a few shops, Tickle Pink Inn and the Highlands Inn (a Hyatt Residence Club facility).
