Within the exclusive environs of the Tehàma Golf Club community, this Mediterranean estate, inspired by the distinctive style of Tuscany, sits at the heart of roughly 16.9 acres with magnificent vistas of mountains, tree-covered hills, sunsets, and the waters of Monterey Bay. The uncommon refinement begins with a majestic arched iron gate, which gives way to a winding drive and then a stately motor court. This seems an appropriately regal introduction for the home, clad in handsome stone and barrel tile, as well as a Mission-style bell tower with an observation deck and a timeless fountain. The approximately 14,300-square-foot residence was arranged as a series of classical pavilions connected by cloisters — an expansive configuration capable of accommodating both grand and intimate gatherings, whether elegantly formal or relaxed, casual, and convivial. A formal rotunda entryway opens to a center hall with striking groin-vaulted ceilings. Beyond lie serene bedroom suites with private sitting rooms, an exceptionally appointed chef’s kitchen, and a host of spaces for consummate living and entertaining: a theater or media room, a card room, a billiards or game room, and a music room with a bar. The rare combination of luxury and comfort continues outdoors, with a putting green, a bocce court, an alfresco kitchen, and a truly impressive oversized infinity-edge swimming pool with a hot tub. The interiors are characterized by meticulous construction, refined craftsmanship, and a unique modern grandeur. Impeccable millwork, imported stones, swiveling wood-framed windows, German doors, and other exceptional architectural details can be found throughout. The home is offered completely turnkey, with custom interior design by highly esteemed Suzanne Tucker that includes one-of-a-kind furniture collection and the finest in luxurious finishes. Tehàma’s invitation-only Jay Morrish–designed golf course spans 6,506 yards overlooking the Pacific Ocean; other private amenities include a clubhouse offering high-end cuisine, banquet facilities, and a full-service members-only pro shop. The community is mere moments from historic Carmel-by-the-Sea, with its superior restaurants, boutiques, and galleries.
