As far as famous streets go, 17 Mile Drive is on par with the world’s most elite—Rodeo Drive, Fifth Avenue, Kensington Palace Gardens. It’s easy to see why. The world-renowned roadway winds between Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach, whipping you through cypress trees and rocky coastline peppered with some of the most inspiring golf course residences on the planet. (The scenic drive is so elite, in fact, that it will cost you a fee if you want to drive it, although biking and walking are free). It goes without saying that a home with a 17 Mile address commands an absolute premium…and this newly listed $12,500,000 vintage post-adobe is no exception.
Set on the world-famous Pebble Beach Golf Course along the 14th fairway and right next to the 14th green, the residence has been affectionately called “Casa Blanca”— both a nod to the classic film of the 1940s and an apt description of the sprawling 1950-built house itself. Sweeping rooms opening to expansive golf course views harken back to the mid-century when casual California entertaining became an art form.
Five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a formal dining room and a spacious kitchen in 4,133 square feet provide ample space. Unique touches, such as three fireplaces and wide windows that provide an indoor/outdoor connection, create warmth and a sense of place.
Two private patios and a charming brick terrace provide “one of the best views in all Pebble Beach,” says listing agent Jan Williams. A glance past the property’s edge captures golfers swinging their clubs and a dramatic swath of ocean blue beyond—just the kind of magical scene one would hope to see as the owner of a home in such a prized location.
“With broad views of the fairways, Point Lobos and the mighty Pacific, you will have no doubt exactly where you are, for you are…on the 14th at Pebble Beach,” says Williams. For affluent buyers with a love of the game, that will be all that they need.
