Luxury Homes for Sale in Carmel Meadows, Carmel, CA

Carmel Meadows is a hidden gem three miles south of Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA.

Established in the 50s, Carmel Meadows was a pioneer in the region, being the first to put utility lines underground, resulting in unobstructed views of the stunning surroundings. It is also untouched by intrusive streetlights, letting residents bask in the beauty of starlit skies. As you stroll through residential streets, you’ll discover oceanfront homes boasting large picture windows perfectly framing the sea, open spaces, and the enchanting estuary. They all boast proximity to a serene beach area—a vast, west-facing haven with rock-lined shores offering a more secluded seaside experience. Despite the tranquility, the community is conveniently close to shopping and dining in the greater Monterey area. 

SECLUDED LOCATION: Carmel Meadows homes are worth exploring if you are looking for a retreat by the ocean. It offers unparalleled privacy, bordered by the bay to the west, the river to the east, and wrapped by untouched forested landscapes with no neighboring developments. Even though it is just 8 minutes from downtown Carmel, the community is tucked away from the busier sections, lending a sense of a private beach subdivision. Enjoy a quiet living environment and solitude in your coastal escape.

SERENE RIVER BEACH: Carmel River State Beach is known for its peaceful vibes, unlike the bustling Monastery Beach and the main Carmel River Beach. The lagoon area, where the river meets the sea, transforms into a wildlife birding sanctuary, offering a breathtaking display of waterfowl and songbirds. It also attracts scuba divers captivated by the bay’s natural beauty. Beyond these, you can indulge in beachcombing, picnics, or simply savoring the soothing sounds of the waves.

COMMUNITY TRAILHEAD: The 1.75-mile journey of Carmel Meadows Trailhead is a gateway to the beauty of the coastline. The path leads north to the state beach at the river’s mouth and south to Monastery Beach. As you tread, be greeted by vibrant wildflowers, a panoramic view of Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, and captivating rock stacks amidst the turquoise-hued waves. Venture closer during calm tides and discover hidden tide pools. You can also ascend and witness breathtaking sights reminiscent of Ireland. It’s an excellent way to exercise with a dose of awe-inspiring scenery.
