Carmel Valley Ranch
The gated community of Carmel Valley Ranch includes single family homes and estates as well as townhomes and condos all within the confines of the Ranch, where stunning views, stellar golf and resort amenities create a lifestyle of luxury and sophisticated country living. Nestled in a valley surrounded by the majestic Santa Lucia mountains, this sprawling property has large estates and townhomes located along the fairways where you can relax on your deck and watch golfers tackle this challenging Pete Dye championship course. Elevated views of the course and valley can be quite spectacular and homes and condos in the hills above take advantage of their perch for a bird’s eye view. Many of the townhomes are quite spacious and have high end finishes, vaulted ceilings and 2 car garages. As you are traveling down scenic Highway 1 south you will reach Carmel Valley Road. The Ranch is located just over 6 miles inland.
Carmel Valley Ranch is home to the Carmel Valley Ranch Resort which is part of the Joie de Vivre Hotel’s luxury portfolio and a project John Pritzker infused $30 million into with a transformative makeover and vision. Under this new ownership the property has blossomed into a 500 acre “playground” where guests can truly relax, leave their work at home and sink into the pleasures of eating wonderfully prepared local foods, taking an invigorating swim in one of the two resort pools, working out in the fitness center, golfing and spending time with family. While for most this experience is only a blissful couple of days, for those fortunate enough to call Carmel Valley Ranch their home, the lifestyle is year round. Club membership allows you first rate amenities and facilities for health of body and mind. Spa Aiyana offers pampering treatments and rejuvenating massage perfect for when you need to unwind and refocus. Homeowners pay monthly association dues that vary with each individual home.
