BECOME THE PROUD OWNERS OF THIS STUNNING MANSION ON PEBBLE BEACH DURING ITS CENTENARY ANNIVERSARY!
Considered one of the world’s prettiest golf courses with picture postcard Pacific Ocean views, the Pebble Beach Golf Links is celebrating its 100-year anniversary this year.
When Phil Mickelson accepted his $1.368 million winner’s purse today for this year’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am where the top pros and celebrities enjoy four days of fun and competition, he joined a historic list of past winners including Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. Amatuer celebrity golfers who participated in this year’s festivities included Bill Murray, Clint Eastwood, Toby Keith, Ray Romano and Wayne Gretzky. Mickelson’s victory is his fifth Pebble Beach championship tying him with Mark O’Meara for most all-time wins.
Selected as the No. 1 Golf Course in America by Golf Digest in 2001, the Pebble Beach course wraps around the coastline of Carmel Bay with staggering views of large waves crashing along the rocks on the south side of the Monterey Peninsula. The golf course was originally designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant and opened on February 22, 1919. Though several architects have made revisions over the years, Jack Nicklaus was the last when he recreated the 5th hole in 1998. Formerly known as the Bing Crosby National Pro-Am tournament when it began in 1947, every February the last of four rounds of the AT&T is played at the Links course. Pebble Beach has hosted the U.S. Open five times, the last in 2010, and will be held at the Links again this year in honor of its centennial. With its dramatic setting, it’s not surprising that the greens fees are some of the world’s highest with off-season rounds at $425 per round, increasing to $525 each April 1st. Plan on an extra $100 for a caddie.
In addition to its beauty and history, Pebble Beach is unique for one of the West Coast’s favorite Sunday car trips on 17-Mile Drive with views of the golf course, seascape and spectacular mansions. One of the most dramatic homes, set on the ocean cliffs near the golf course lodge with views of the course and the white-sand beaches of Carmel and Point Lobos State Park, is currently for sale, priced at $34.9 million.
Nestled amidst cypress trees on the cliffs of Pescadero Point, this illustrious residence is one of only 31 coveted waterfront properties in Pebble Beach. Set on an unprecedented, two-acre lot, the villa showcases a gracious, open floor plan and spectacular ocean views from every room, with vistas extending from the Pebble Beach Golf Links to the white sand beaches of Carmel and Point Lobos State Park.
Secluded behind a grand entry gate, a cobblestone motor court welcomes your arrival, with carmel stone walls defining the path through lush landscapes and cascading ponds to the 8,412-square-foot retreat with a three-car garage and separate guest house. Awash in natural light, masterfully designed interiors by Jeff Doherty were created for entertaining, featuring an expansive great room with vaulted ceilings, spectacular chef’s kitchen with a walk-in pantry, both formal and informal living areas, and a climate-controlled wine cellar with racking for 1,000 bottles. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame far-reaching ocean views, while a colonnade of French doors opens to sweeping terraces for an unparalleled indoor-outdoor coastal lifestyle. Four ocean-view suites join the terrace, including the incredible master with a sitting room, elegant marble bathroom, and showroom closets.
An informal family room leads to a generous waterfront entertainer’s terrace, complete with an outdoor kitchen and zero-edge infinity pool that appears to float weightlessly over the sea. Located a stone’s throw from The Lodge, this landmark home embodies the essence of oceanfront living in one of Pebble Beach’s most desirable coastal enclaves
