Since its incorporation in 1915, Carmel’s founders have preserved the natural beauty and artistic charm of this central coast city. Visitors won’t find neon signs or streets with tidy sidewalks and uniform homes. Instead, dirt paths connect the unique cottages and custom-built houses. The many European-inspired bistros and shops encourage slow meandering. Residents enjoy easy access to Carmel Beach year-round with the mild climate and sunny skies. Real estate in Carmel offers historic cottages built by architectural legends and award-winning “green” homes. Homes on Scenic, the winding street along the coastline, have beautiful ocean views and are some of the most luxurious properties available.
