A truly extraordinary assemblage of land and houses with two award-winning, mature vineyards comprising 14 of the total 162 glorious acres. With two separate parcels, 3 houses, a number of barns, garages and other structures, the renowned Talbott Estate took generations of passionate work to grow into the legacy property it has become. The main house, designed by Craig Holdren, offers 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and just under 4,200 square feet of living space with impressive mountain, vineyard, and ocean views. The ~2,800 sqft "original house" provides a tropical oasis with a swimming pool, VW bus fountain, mature gardens with a fruit orchard, and rare trees not found anywhere else in the area. Nearby is a separate caretaker's house with its own garage, lawn, and guest quarters. Without comparison, this celebrated property located conveniently between Carmel and Carmel Valley Village is finally ready for its next loving owner to savor the 360-degree views of the Santa Lucia mountains and, gazing west, the grand pacific beyond.
There are 2 wells on the property and Cal-Am services the houses. The grapes were originally planted in the early 1980s, and are currently leased ($30k/year) by Gallo vineyards. Total production is 40-60 tons.
