Everyone knows Pebble Beach as a a world-class golf destination — and it is. Three acclaimed lodges, five renowned golf courses and a history of hosting PGA Tour events since 1947 continues to put the Monterey Peninsula paradise on the map of must-visit golfing locales. But there is so much more to Pebble Beach — the breathtaking views over the Pacific, the pine-forested setting sweeping to painting-worthy coastline, the famed 17-mile Drive, the heritage as a car collector’s haven and of course, some of the most inspiring real estate in California. Case in point: this newly listed French country estate on Ronda Road.
Like a European cottage, the charm of the architecture blends effortlessly into Pebble Beach’s rugged-yet-beautiful natural surroundings. Exploration beyond the entry gate reveals an impressive stone drive way and motor court. Built in 2006, the five-bedroom residence is an inspiring representation of old and new as contemporary amenities and modern-day accouterments fuse with refined Old World style details.
Soaring ceilings in the main public spaces create a sense of volume, while large picture windows frame expansive South-facing views of the Pacific Ocean and Point Lobos. The home itself measures about 6,261 square feet and encompasses a formal entry, formal living room with fireplace, formal dining room, a study/office, family room and library. An elegantly appointed kitchen and wet bar makes grand entertaining easy.
A large terrace also offers the opportunity for refined outdoor entertaining. Two master suites — one upstairs and one downstairs — create both convenience and a sense of privacy for guests.
Fine craftsmanship abounds both inside and out, characterized by dramatic archways, gorgeous wrought-iron work, beautiful stone and wood floors, as well as lush, mature landscaping.
A prized, centrally location in Pebble Beach makes this fine home one of the most sought-after real estate opportunities in the Monterey Peninsula. Whether you love golf, rare cars or the coastal lifestyle, this property embodies everything that makes Pebble Beach so revered.
