Of all the legendary streets in the United States, few hold the same prestige as 17 Mile Drive in Pebble Beach. Winding through Pacific Grove to Pebble Beach, the famed street is not only one of the most scenic drives in the world — it’s also a revered coastal address where some of California’s most breathtaking private mansions reside.

StoneGate is one of those prized estates, and it’s recently entered the real estate market for $19.9 million. Set on 17 Mile Drive between two of the finest and most exclusive golf courses in the world, StoneGate is “a reflection of an English Manor tucked amongst historic cypress trees,” explains listing agent Kim DiBenedetto of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Pebble Beach.  The location, she says, was meticulously selected by its original owners, who sought to bring the leisure and nature of The Lone Cypress and Cypress Point Club, as well as all of the beauty of the Pebble Beach coastline to their gated 2.68 acre estate.

Sculpted at the hands of 122 craftsmen over 2 ½ years, the details and quality emanate throughout the property. Amenities — too many to name individually — abound. An impressive amount of detail graces the interiors, as seen in the five fireplaces and ornate carvings throughout.

There is also a personal theater, where the future homeowner can relax to the sound of crashing waves while watching their favorite films. There are five bedrooms, five full baths and three half bathrooms, plus a guest house with its own bedroom and bathroom. Entertaining, both on an intimate level and grand scale, were carefully considered during its design.

Twelve audio zones, for example, make it possible to stream music through almost every room in the residence. The kitchen, while paying homage to the past aesthetically, functions perfectly for the present with Viking appliances and a range of other features intended to make food preparation easy.

The four-car garage — a must for any address on 17 Mile Drive, given its history as the site of the famous Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance auto tour — is a car collector’s dream.
