We Wish We Had $11.4M to Buy This Oceanfront Wonder in Carmel

Designed by renowned architect Wallace Cunningham, this curvaceous residence on the Pacific Coast Highway boasts unbeatable views.

Nestled above a private cove, the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath estate is four miles outside of Carmel-by-the-Sea in Northern California. Its swooping form—reminiscent of John Lautner’s Garcia House in Los Angeles—takes inspiration from a butterfly’s wings. The arcing roof is made of specially-engineered stainless steel, while polished concrete floors and raw concrete finishes keep things minimal inside. Huge expanses of windows allow views to permeate the home at all angles (while motorized blinds ensure privacy for residents).

Ten years in the making, the 2,667-square-foot retreat leads straight to the water’s edge through two staircases that meander through the landscaping.
