Luxury Homes for Sale in Tierra Grande, Carmel Valley, CA

Rancho Tierra Grande (RTG) is a picturesque community nestled along the northern ridge lines of the stunning Carmel Valley.

Initially developed in the 1960s by Paul and Barbara Porter, this enclave comprises three subdivisions with 208 individual homesites. The houses for sale in Tierra Grande Carmel are strategically spread along the ridge lines, offering sweeping views of Carmel Valley below, the Santa Lucia mountains, and even the sparkling ocean on clear days.

It is an idyllic retreat offering a balanced lifestyle amidst breathtaking natural surroundings.

EXPANSIVE ESTATES: Rancho Tierra Grande Carmel homes sit on generous lot sizes ranging from half to one acre. Some boast even larger estates with over an acre of usable land. With such vast expanses, you can customize and create a unique dwelling, whether adding a swimming pool, creating lush gardens, or building a private tennis court. The combination of the size and the community’s scenic location also contributes to the high real estate value in Rancho Tierra Grande. You not only enjoy the luxury of space and privacy but also benefit from the investment potential of owning property in a sought-after location.

SECLUDED SANCTUARY: RTG is purely residential, ensuring peaceful living. Unlike bustling tourist magnets with commercial areas, the community is free from business activity, providing a relaxed atmosphere. The Tierra Grande HOA has also implemented restrictions on short-term rentals, further preserving the serene ambiance and enhancing privacy. Enjoy moments of reflection on your patio or hear the whispers of nature from your wrap-around deck and feel like a world away in your private oasis.

SUNNY COMMUNITY: The community is in an ideal location with abundant sunshine and a moderate climate, perfect for relaxation and outdoor enjoyment. Seaside areas are often shrouded in fog. But RTG is out of the coastal fog belt, offering clear skies and pleasant weather year-round. Despite being further inland, it is just minutes from popular destinations such as Carmel, Carmel Beach, and Monterey. This proximity allows residents to easily access the vibrant culture, dining, and recreational opportunities while returning home to a sunny valley setting.
