Carmel Real Estate & Homes for Sale in California

Carmel-By-The-Sea, as it is officially known, is located on the Monterey Peninsula only a two hours' drive south of San Francisco. This community of exceptional scenic beauty is nestled in a pine forest overlooking pristine, white beaches and the glistening azure blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Also within this spectacular view shed are the world famous championship golf courses of Pebble Beach. As such, this lush, forested seashore town offers what is arguably the most stunning stretch of recreational coastline in all of California – dazzling, as an emerald jewel, when viewed from the air.

Just over 4,000 residents call this charming village home. Surrounding Carmel's city limits are several additional small residential enclaves, each with a Carmel address, and each possessing a distinctive character evoked by such names as Carmel Point, Carmel Woods, Carmel Meadows, Quail Meadows, Santa Lucia Preserve, Carmel Highlands, Yankee Point, and Otter Cove.

Local parents take pride in the fact that Carmel Public Schools offer top-rated educational opportunities for grades K-12. Carmel also is home to several first-rate private schools. A 2-year community college and a 4-year state college are located in neighboring Monterey and there is a University of California campus nearby.

Recreational opportunities include playing world-class golf courses and premiere tennis clubs, sailing, scuba diving, ocean kayaking, surfing, horseback riding to mention a few, and of course, beach combing along the world famous Carmel beaches.

The principal business of Carmel is tourism and the community flourishes with a wide range of retail and service businesses that are dedicated to providing visitors with a unique and memorable experience.
