Graceful Carmel Beauty
Situated near the Bay in Carmel-by-the-Sea, this 4,000-square-foot home underwent an extensive interior remodel. Soft white finishes on walls and ceilings accentuate the natural light that beams in through windows and skylights. Wide-plank, stained oak flooring, marble mosaic adorning the bathrooms, iron handrails and custom cabinetry serve to create a sleek, modern and graceful style. The 3-bed, 4.5-bath home features an open, flowing floor plan that occupies lower, main and upper levels, affording privacy and ample gathering spaces. Energy demand was significantly reduced with installation of a high-efficiency furnace, replacing hot water heaters with two tankless on-demand units, converting all lighting to LED and insulating the newly opened ceilings. Fireplaces were converted from wood-burning to sealed, gas units and ensconced in custom concrete fireplace surrounds. The laundry room was relocated from the lower level to third floor for increased convenience.
