Tour a Historic Estate in Pebble Beach

Casa Ladera

When describing this majestic Spanish Colonial–style villa, designer Juan Pablo Molyneux told Architectural Digest “Everything vibrates in harmony.” Molyneux’s impeccable renovation transformed the 1920s home—perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific in Pebble Beach—into a lavish modern masterpiece, with majestic spaces displaying generous proportions and one-of-a-kind decorative detail.

The designer brought his distinctive style to rooms that were already gracious and grand, expanding windows to emphasize views, creating depth with Venetian plaster walls, and employing a diversity of styles and hues.

The resulting harmonious interiors include a vaulted anteroom clad in embossed leather, a color-filled salon, a columned gallery with Nile-green walls, an ocean-view library, a grand dining room with reflective surfaces that sparkle by candlelight, and six serene bedrooms.

Irreplaceable decorative elements include a dining room mural depicting the San Francisco Bay, the harbor, the hills, and the Spanish mission; striking bath paneling of distressed oak, gray onyx, and red marble; and Portuguese-style tiles by Atelier Prométhée that ornament the walls, risers, and arches of one graceful hallway.

Bernard Trainor consulted on the landscape design for the 3.41-acre grounds, where tall shade trees, swaths of emerald grass, and meandering pathways further the estate’s idyllic ambience.

A central garden courtyard is an alluring private oasis, with archways accented by yet more hand-painted tilework by Atelier Prométhée.

A breezy upper-level terrace overlooks it all, offering a perfect perch for gazing out toward the Pacific, Carmel Beach, and Stillwater Cove.
