Architectural Masterpiece On 20-Acres Once Priced At $15-Million Sells For $6.767-Million
499 Aguajito Road, Carmel, California, United States
Update August 04, 2017: SOLD for $6,767,500 499 Aguajito is an architectural masterpiece designed by the late architect John Marsh Davis and built by his contractor of choice George Lino, who moved from Marin county to Carmel for the project. The two worked closely with the owners to create a private sanctuary that delights the senses. Marsh was an architect in the Organic design tradition and a master of California Arts and Crafts design, blending it with the modern technology of the time. The living spaces invite exploration with soaring ceilings, hidden lofts, and fireplaces at every turn. Sitting on 20 private and gated acres on “Jack’s Peak,” the property has views over Pebble Beach of the Pacific and across Pacific Grove to the Monterey Bay. The kitchen sits above the entertainment-focused living room with floor to ceiling windows and a fireplace focal point. A more private and intimate sitting area is warmed by the second of four fireplaces in the main residence. The master bedroom has its own fireplace and living space. It is served by two bathrooms, one with a free standing tub with a separate shower and the other with an enclosed shower/bath, walk in closet, and nearby sauna. Two of the bedrooms are configured as an in-home theater. The property has a guest house a short distance down a stone path and across a sun deck to protect the privacy of both residences. The soaring interiors are reflected in the exterior. It was previously listed as much as $15-million before dropping numerous times to $8.995-million and finally selling for $6.767-million in August 2017.
