Carmel-by-the-Sea's downtown, a place to shop and live.

Real Estate Broker/Owner CA#01772851 HI#RB21268

Some Carmel-by-the-Sea residents like to live in-close to the downtown area, an area that is a fraction of the one square mile that is within its city limits.

These residents just park their car and walk everywhere, including shopping for groceries at Bruno's or Nielson's markets who also offer fabulous deli sections if you don't feel like cooking. Within its borders you can find architects and builders to construct or remodel your home, renowned interior decorators, any number of places to decorate your home including Sabine Adamson's French County antiques to kitchen utensils, and landscape architects for your exterior spaces.

And for everyday living, you can find a hardware store, an office supply store, a pharmacy, facial and spa salons, and pet boutiques for your pooch to browse through and get treats. Speaking of pets, this is a pet friendly town! Doris Day's Cypress Inn is the meet and greet place for them.

If you want to meet your friends, there are any number of coffee places and restaurants. Those in the know have their favorite early bird "happy hour" restaurants and bars for heavily discounted food and libation. There's even one, Cultura restaurant situated where I have my office in Su Vecino Courtyard that has "happy hour" between 9 PM and Midnight for those who like to dine and meet up later.

The last but not least, there is the post office which is pretty much the hub of Carmel-by-the-Sea since the town itself does not have any addresses as such, so mail must be picked up here. Needless to say, you will meet pretty much every resident in town at one point or another, something the politicians and others with information to impart has figured out.

What are real estate prices if you want to live right close to the business center? Here are some choices that are "active" as of today:

1. Luxury condo 1/1 at Mission & 3rd for $1,149,000

2. A historic cottage 1/1 at Casanova at 6th for $1,200,000

3. A bigger house 3/3 at San Carlos & 3rd for $1,895,000


There are any number of homes available including ocean view and ocean front properties.

It certainly is not an inexpensive place to live but what a wonderful place it is if you can afford it.
