Founded in 1902 and incorporated in 1916, Carmel-By-The-Sea is steeped in artistic history and natural coastal beauty. In the heart of Carmel-By-The-Sea lies the Golden Rectangle, a 10 block by 8 block area encompassing the very essence of Carmel. It is the epicenter of the local real estate market and hosts truly special homes and residents alike. The Golden Rectangle is scattered with French Victorian homes from famed architect M.J. Murphy, Tudor style cottages by Hugh Comstock which are blended in with Midcentury Modern and Spanish style homes throughout. It is known for being dog friendly and attracting audiences from around the world.
Artists who originally built homes in Carmel-by-the-Sea, named their homes instead of giving street names. That is why there are no home addresses.
