Ocean Vista Retreat
Views of the Pacific are framed by wall-to-wall windows on the ocean-facing side of this 2,981-square-foot home. Set in a cozy Carmel-by-the-Sea neighborhood, the home shares the same footprint as the 1980s structure that previously occupied the site. Distinctive ceiling angles lend a sense of spaciousness to the open design of the great room. Splashes of color and rich wood flooring bring the beauty of the natural surroundings into this 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath abode. An innovative radiant heat system warms both water and interior spaces, with settings manageable from remote using a smart phone or tablet. Effective air sealing and thorough insulation enhance the energy efficiency, indoor air quality and overall comfort of this elegant two-story retreat.
