“Easy grandeur” might be the phrase that best describes this landmark home on Pescadero Point, one of the 31 waterfront properties in California’s storied Pebble Beach that are legendary for being rarely available. Within the main house’s interiors, vaulted ceilings, skylights, and expansive windows admitting glorious natural light contribute to a sense of regal expansiveness. A reverence for natural materials, such as refined stone, rugged rock, and handsome wood, creates an air of effortless serenity while maintaining the sense of luxury expected in a home of this caliber. At the idyllic entry, mature trees, tasteful landscaping, artful rockwork, and a path that leads over a tranquil flowing stream introduce the dreamlike ambience. Just steps inside is the heart of the home, the great room. The allure of this space — which includes living and dining areas and is comfortable yet undeniably grand — is enhanced by a sweeping view of the coastline and golf course, afforded by a nearly full wall of glass that opens to the columned and balustraded terrace running along the entire length of the home. The well-appointed kitchen encourages culinary pursuits of all sorts and is destined to be another center of convivial day-to-day living. Each of the four inviting bedroom suites enjoys a stunning view of the Pacific and opens through sets of wide glass doors to the breezy veranda. The highlight is the elegant master suite, which includes an august sitting room or office with a fireplace, a lavish room-sized closet, and an opulent bath with a soaking tub. Just outside, a cypress tree creates a sheltered private haven on the terrace. Guests will be comfortably, privately indulged in the guesthouse. Outdoors lie a series of regal stone terraces that include a built-in grill and a shady ramada with stately classical columns, a wood-burning fireplace, and an open-air kitchen. It all overlooks a relaxing spa and the serene swimming pool, where an infinity edge falls away to reveal the shoreline, the emerald fairways for which Pebble Beach is renowned, and the majestic ocean waters.
