Carmel-by-the-sea Modern Luxe Retreat
Carmel-by-the-sea Modern Luxe Retreat
Designed by acclaimed California architect John Hans Ostwald, this two-bedroom home is classic California Modernism. Ostwald began his career working for world-renowned visionary architect Richard Neutra, regarded as the founder of California Modernism. The home has all the hallmarks of classic California living with its integration with the natural landscape, Redwood post and beam construction, striking intentional geometry, airy lofty open spaces, walls of glass, and decks that bring the indoors out and the outdoors in.
