Classic Carmel, say hello to 2020. Welcome to the genuinely turn-key Thalassophiles Cottage. Defined as Lover of the Sea located in quiet NE Carmel-by-the-Sea. Originally built in the 1920s, the home was reinvented in a 2019-2020 reno that reflects a more modern appeal, with clean lines and on-trend finishes. High-end details include: Carrera marble countertops & herringbone tile floors, smooth coat plaster walls, and refinished original hardwoods. The new heart of the home, designed by Monterey Kitchens, is the showpiece. Featuring custom Downsview Kitchens cabinetry, Bosch appliances, speed and traditional ovens, gas cooktop, & wine refrigerator. This single-level home offers three bedrooms. Two, each with private decks, in the main house. The 3rd BR is a detached guest cottage, making for the perfect work from home space/artist studio/yoga retreat. Vaulted beamed floor plan lives much larger. Be prepared to be both classically charmed & duly impressed.
