People the world over know Pebble Beach. They know it as home to what is arguably the finest golf locale on Earth. Pebble Beach has eight 18-hole golf courses, both public and private—none more esteemed than Pebble beach Golf Links. Designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant, it is one of the most famous courses in the Western United States—not to mention it has hosted five U.S. Opens and has also been home to the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance auto show since 1950.
The same sweeping beauty that has made Pebble Beach one of Golf Digest’s Top 10 PGA Tour Courses has also made the area a favorite of discerning homebuyers in search of a piece of paradise like that offered by the character, grandeur, and flat-out-spectacular sight lines—both indoors and out—of 1251 Padre Lane. Located near the Pebble Beach Lodge & Golf Links on Padre Lane, one of the area’s most coveted streets, this stunning four-bedroom, 5,344-square-foot Mediterranean is the ultimate Pebble Beach ocean-view estate. From the gourmet kitchen with huge island, granite countertops, and commercial-grade appliances, to the resort-style master suite with French doors out to a view terrace, every element of this home has been designed to a tee—literally.
Mediterranean architecture with arched doorways, built-ins, coffered ceilings, and seven gorgeous fireplaces, give an air of distinction. Walls of glass afford beautiful views of the ocean and skylights flood the rooms with natural light. Outside approximately 1.3 acres of prime Del Monte forest property are framed by vibrant gardens, expansive terraces, and a putting green, allowing residents to take full advantage of Pebble Beach’s climate while enjoying some of the most magnificent views imaginable.
Throughout the home, grand formal areas and charming family spaces combine to create a luxurious yet comfortable residence for year-round living or to round out a personal portfolio of fine homes.
Pebble Beach’s second-home market (and third and fourth, many of whom escape hot summers in southern states for Pebble Beach), is strong with those who appreciate that there’s a lot more…than golf. Natural beauty is a top draw, attracting the likes of Charles Schwab, along with artists, actors, and a throng of affluent second home owners from Silicon Valley.
