Luxury Homes for Sale in Northwest Carmel, Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA

Northwest Carmel-by-the-Sea offers a tranquil escape despite its desirable location above the vibrant downtown area.

In contrast to the bustling tourist hubs like the central district and the beach, this section sees fewer visitors, creating a serene atmosphere. The sight of majestic mature oak trees enhances the peaceful and refreshing ambiance. Housing options include seaside residences and well-maintained homes showcasing authentic Carmel architectural character. The hilly terrain adds to the allure, providing an excellent vantage point for sweeping ocean views. Beyond the coastal charms, you can also enjoy family-friendly recreational havens like Forest Hill Park and First Murphy Park, now home to the Carmel Heritage Society. These venues offer green spaces, children’s play areas, and sports courts, blending nature and community.

WALKING DISTANCE TO ATTRACTIONS: Experience convenience with a perfect blend of downtown and beach accessibility. Wander to Carmel Beach via a nearby walking path off San Antonio Avenue and Sand and Sea, or visit Pebble Beach to the north through a neighborhood entry point. You are also near fine dining, shopping, and entertainment options along Ocean Avenue. The location ensures you can park the car and leave as you’re only steps away from Carmel’s best.

EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE: Within the coveted area of Northwest Carmel-by-the-Sea is the Stevenson Lower School, one of the country’s best college prep academies. Stevenson’s Upper School, located just minutes away, completes the educational journey. The Harrison Memorial Library at Ocean Avenue and Lincoln Street enriches the community with many books and materials. With high-quality learning centers and resources, the youth are better prepared to navigate the modern world, contribute meaningfully to society, and pursue fulfilling careers.
