Carmel – Undisclosed Address


     This magnificent hilltop Estate takes full advantage of the views of majestic mountain vistas, forested hillsides, sunsets and the Monterey Bay, from its 16-acre promontory perch within the gates of Clint Eastwood’s exclusive golf club community, Tehama.
    The home, built with utmost attention to quality and elegance, was designed by noted Carmel Architect Eric Miller and furnished by nationally renowned designer Suzanne Tucker.
   Meticulously constructed with incomparable quality materials and craftsmanship, over a 3-year period, the approximately 14,300sf. Tuscan themed home is a modern-day grand living experience, come to life.  One enters the motor-court through an impressive arched iron gate with stone clad walls, framed by a grand, working Santa Barbara mission style bell-tower with an observation deck, a putting green and a central fountain. This residence exhibits the most comprehensive collection of finished millwork, one-of-a-kind furniture collection, luxury finishes and refined craftsmanship with incomparable details throughout.
  Once inside, the striking ceiling details of the rotunda formal entryway and multiplex groin vaulted ceilings of the center hall will transport you to even more extraordinary architectural details, including the venetian plaster wall finishes and multi-story formal rooms that can accommodate heads-of-state as well as intimate gatherings with friends and family.
   Luxury touches include imported natural stones, solid wood wall panels, wood multi-swivel windows and exterior doors from Germany,  and custom lighting, all delivered turnkey by Suzanne Tucker, one of the more noted Interior Designers in the United States.
    The home was conceived with the premise that if all the loved ones wanted to gather at the same time, there would be a place for everyone, including golf buddies.  So, the main residence was arranged as a series of pavilions connected by cloisters, beginning with the 2-story entrance hall.  The spacious master wing offers two sleeping areas, sitting area, large closets and two and a half baths. Three additional suites and a separate two-bedroom guest house provide space and comfort to all.
   Features include a formal living room with 25-foot beamed ceilings and architecturally framed views of Pacific sunsets.  A wood paneled office and a library with high ceilings are accentuated with custom chandeliers designed exclusively for this home.  Two rolling ladders access the volumes of literary gems.  The ‘pièce de résistance’ is the formal dining room which, with a carved ceiling and massive columns, accommodates elegant dinner parties, which will spill over to the welcoming bar and music room or to the warm embrace of the covered veranda fire place.  The interiors have a unique lightness and grace creating a serene atmosphere.
   The core of the home is the chef’s kitchen featuring custom appliances, butler’s pantry, family room, breakfast nook and easy access to the outdoor kitchen and entertainment areas around the double infinity edge swimming pool, a massive hot tub and bocce court.
   A 10,000 bottle wine cellar, home theater/media room and card room are perfectly situated on a lower level entertainment area found just below the bar and billiard/game room.  Hidden modern-day technological systems include smart home lighting, climate, security and entertainment systems that can be configured and used via smart phone. An array of solar panels provides for all your energy needs.
  This estate offers both luxury and comfort, intertwined, within a prestigious private gated community.  Tehama, a Native American word meaning ‘abundance of nature’, was designed around Mr. Eastwood’s vision for a sustainable community.  Featuring only 90 estate homesites on over 2000 acres, the country club includes a state-of-the-art fitness facility, swimming pools, tennis courts and multiple dining venues, in a panoramic mountain and ocean view setting.  Social membership is included with purchase of the property;  Golf memberships are available, by invitation.  Tehama is located just a few miles inland, beyond the coastal fog that grabs the coastline in summer, yet a short drive to Carmel-by-the-Sea or Monterey for dinner, a play, wine tasting or a day at the beach.
