“Steelaway” Bungalow in Carmel-by-The Sea

I admire this beautiful bungalow on my morning walks. I have no idea that it has been used as a rental property for many years until I see in the Pine Cone that it is now for sale. 

Carmel began as a vacation destination and has continued to attract second-home owners and vacationing visitors as well as permanent residents.

In order to preserve Carmel-by-the-Sea’s residential character, no home may be rented for less than 30 consecutive days, so I am rarely aware that home is for rent.  When I check the Carmel Realty’s site for Long-Term Rentals (Carmel Realty Company) , I find some lovely homes.

This elegant home is built in 1939 and is the epitome of Carmel Charm.

Let’s step in through the dutch door.

We are in the spacious living room beautifully furnished with heirloom antiques ( negotiable) . Like many Carmel homes, this one is built around a courtyard,

allowing wonderful light to flood the rooms. I feel as if I am in an English Drawing Room. I love the 10 foot high wood beamed ceilings and hardwood floors.

A formal dining room lies on the other side of the entry.

There is even a library/sitting room with a second fireplace surrounded by imported French tile.

There is a wet bar with ice maker- all good so far.

Wait a minute ,no kitchen photos. Hmmm! Curious.

There are two bedrooms and three baths in the main house.

And, across the patio, sits a garden guest cottage with twin beds and a bath.

$3,195,000       3 BED       4 BATH       2725 SQ. FT.       80×100
