A REAL Oceanfront Home

Some homes claim to be oceanfront, but this one on Scenic Road in Carmel, CA, really is. Ocean. Front.

“You really get this natural feel, almost like a ship, where you’re just on the cusp of being on the water, and the water is right below you. So it’s a very unique perspective.”

Listed for $14 million, the home is built into the rock, and is one of only a handful in the area located on the water’s edge. On the market for the first time in 40 years, it offers a rare opportunity to buy a home right on the water in the exclusive enclave.

Built in 1947, the 2,777-square-foot landmark property sits on a quarter of an acre. It’s next door to the famous Butterfly House, with its distinctive roof, which resembles wings. Built in 1951, that house was sold in 2016 for $16.5 million.

The architect Frank Wynkoop designed both homes. He was born in 1902, and his work was much sought-after in the area until his death in 1978.“His goal was to maximize the view beyond that of a 180-, to almost a 270-degree angle,” Canning explains. He adds that, from the huge windows, you can see from Point Lobos to Sunset Point, the Pebble Beach golf links, and Carmel Beach.

The seaside retreat comes with lots of living space, with three bedrooms and four bathrooms. An office could be another bedroom, for a total of four sleeping areas.
