Exquisite Pebble Beach Ocean View Estate
1565 Riata Road, Pebble Beach
Just around the corner from the Lodge at Pebble Beach, this stunning Mediterranean estate has sweeping views of Pescadero Point to Point Lobos and is a feast for the eyes, inside and out. Completely renovated by Stocker & Allaire in 2012, this home was thoughtfully designed to open up the living spaces, expand the ocean view terrace and add architectural detail throughout. The chef’s kitchen has a large island that is open to the family, living and dining room with wet bar make this home perfect for entertaining. A luxurious master suite with custom built-in shelving, fireplace, large bathroom and walk-in closet can be accessed by stairs or an elevator. Just down the hall from the main entertaining areas are two guest suites with another two suites downstairs for a total of 4 additional bedrooms. Additional entertaining spaces include a private patio, a golf simulator room with wet bar, and a temperature controlled wine cellar large enough to hold approximately 1,100 bottle of your best wine. Located in the sun belt of Pebble Beach, this home is truly a golfer’s paradise.
ABOUT THE AREA
Pebble Beach is a gated, incorporated community located on the Monterey Peninsula between Pacific Grove and Carmel-by-the-Sea. A community of over 4500 residents in both single family residences and condominiums, it is sited on a forested hillside dominated by Monterey Pines overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It affords spectacular views to Point Lobos, Pescadero Point, and Cypress Point, with several beaches, an equestrian center and hiking trails. There are two public schools serving Pebble Beach residents (Carmel and Pacific Grove), but is also home to Stevenson School, a boarding/day private high school. Different from most gated communities, there is public access to the “Forest” with a toll fee charged to non-residents.
It is also considered a small coastal destination with lodging (The Lodge at Pebble Beach, Casa Palmero Spa and The Inn at Spanish Bay), 8 golf courses and the infamous 17 Mile Scenic Drive which hugs the Pacific Coastline and passes golf courses, mansions and many scenic attractions including the Lone Cypress tree (the logo of the Pebble Beach Company).
Of the eight golf courses, Pebble Beach Golf Links, The Links at Spanish Bay, Spyglass Hill and Peter Hay Golf courses are owned by the Pebble Beach Company and are public courses. Poppy Hills is another public course, owned and operated by the Northern California Golf Association. Private courses include the Cypress Point Club, and the two Monterey Peninsula Country Club Courses (The Dunes and Shore Courses).
Two large, major events are held in Pebble Beach each year:
The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am has been an annual event since 1947. It has become one of the most internationally recognized stops on the PGA Tour, and supports hundreds of local nonprofit organizations.
The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance auto show has been held in Pebble Beach since 1950. The event focuses on classic cars, but also includes an auction, a classic car tour, and an automotive art exhibit.
