We typically see a mild tapering in the local market around tax season and this week follows suit.  This year’s anomaly is the sale of an iconic oceanfront listing located just South of Cypress Point Golf Course.  A few highlights worth mentioning below:

Pebble stole the show this week despite lagging behind Carmel in sales volume.  The top closed escrow comes from the West side of the famed 17 Mile Drive- a French style estate labeled ‘Otter Cove’ with expansive ocean views which borders Cypress Point that closed at $28M (20% off of list price).  The other closed escrow is an updated Ranch-style fixer in the Country Club East area that closed at $1.1M (5% off of list price).  The top new sale, considered by many to have the best view in Pebble Beach, is a Mediterranean-style mansion on the coveted Del Ciervo Road with an ask of $22M.  We have the honor of representing the seller of this truly one-of-a-kind property.  The other new sales include a remodeled Contemporary-style home just East of Spanish Bay with an ask of $2.95M; a tear down in the MPCC area with an ask of $799K and a condo in the Upper Forest listed at $699K.  Worth mentioning that the top of the market is on pace for a banner year.

The frontlines of Carmel continues to move at a torrent pace with another listing above the $8M mark going into escrow this week.  The top closed escrow comes from the NW area of Carmel- a Ranch-style fixer on Camino Real with ocean views that closed at $2.173M (1% off of list price).  The other closed escrows include a turn-key cottage in the outskirts of NW Carmel that closed at $1.725M (4% off of list price) and a major fixer in Hatton Fields that closed at $1.225M (8% off of list price).  The top new sale is a tastefully remodeled Saroyan-design home on the beach with an ask of $13.95M- we are delighted to represent the sellers of this highly sought-after home at 7 Sand & Sea.  The other new sales include a beautifully remodeled cottage on Casanova with an ask of $3.195M; a well-maintained cottage with ocean views in NE Carmel with an ask of $1.895M and a teardown nearby listed at $825K.

We are excited to announce that we’re bringing a move-in ready French-style estate in the Highlands to the market next week.  With great indoor/outdoor entertaining areas, a beautifully designed master bedroom and ocean views- this is a must see. 

After a sluggish start to ’16, Quail Lodge saw an uptick in activity this week with 2 new sales.  The top new sale is a remodeled Ranch-style home tucked behind the second tee box on Fairway Pl with an ask of $2.195M.  The other new sale is a tear down on Poplar Ln that’s listed at $1.098M- Poplar is considered to be one of the best streets in Quail.
