Dream of having a pony as a child? Now grown, prosperous and on the hunt for an upscale equestrian property that is manageable in size? Have a thing for the California coast? Yes. Yes. And who doesn’t? This 1.6-acre spread in the ritzy-yet-relaxed heart of Pebble Beach combines a spacious main house, a quaint caretaker’s cottage, and a beautiful three-stall stable for your long-faced friends.
The stone-accented main house, built in a French Country style, spans a comfortable 4,146 square feet with four bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms. Everything is perfectly calibrated for easy-going and luxurious California lifestyle, from the natural materials used in its construction to the understated décor.
The entry walkway is of stone, as is the front vestibule. Both the fireside great room and the separate dining room showcase a vaulted and beamed ceiling, while the casual eat-in kitchen is updated with a slight vintage vibe. The first floor also boasts a primary suite, perfect for older residents or anyone who doesn’t care for stairs, as well as a relaxing media room and a home office.
Outside, patios are ideal for enjoying the California sunshine (at least when the fog has rolled out!) and pretty hedged gardens provide lovely views all around. And for the equine-oriented, there are paddocks for the ponies to roam free and large, light-filled stalls that make for a comfortable sheltered environment for beloved steeds. In addition to the caretaker’s cottage, there is also a three-car garage.
Just minutes away from the world-famous golf course, several pristine beaches, and the Del Monte Forest, with more than 40 miles of bridle trails so that you and your equine pals can get plenty of exercise, the estate is priced at just under $7.5 million. It’s listed with Nicholas Canning and Michael Canning of the Canning Properties Group of Sotheby’s International Realty – Carmel Brokerage.
