Belle Charmante- Once Owned by Clint Eastwood

Belle Charmante ( translated pretty charming) caught my camera lens in August 2012. August is a prime month to admire flower gardens in Carmel and this front garden was a riot of blooms.

Bill and I toured this home when it was on the market and were told it was once the home of Clint Eastwood. Hooray, I saved the listing that makes this claim.



The architecture is not typical Carmel. We climbed a winding spiral staircase to the top floor. We wondered how to take furniture up and down those stairs.

The gate proclaims it was built in 1929.

Agapanthus soars over the unique garden fence.

Hmm! I must have been experimenting with shooting through the fence at the time. Not my best work.

There is a sweet patio in front with a colorful view.

Margaret Robinson reads this post and points out that Clint may have bought this home for his Mother and then his Mother and Stepfather who lived in the home for a long time.

Thanks Margaret!

    I love the vibrant flower colors contrasting with the creamy fence and wall. Thank you for sharing these lovely photos. It’s like taking a mini vacation every time you post. 🙂

    I love your post and glad you’re back doing it more often!

    Have to point out that though Clint may have purchased the home mentioned, it was lived in by his Mother and then his Mother and Stepfather. This as her residence for a very, very long time.
