Hacienda Aguajito: Gated Estate with Ocean Views on 11 Exotic Acres in Carmel

Located in: Carmel
Featured on the Discovery Channel program, "Ultimate Homes - Great Escapes," the Hacienda is Indisputably one of the most unique and beautiful properties on the Monterey Peninsula, This home was built over an eleven year period of time by an intrepid world traveler and antiquities dealer.

Situated on a hilltop of 11 acres overlooking Carmel and Pebble Beach, the 6500 sq. ft. palatial home is surrounded by terraced gardens and patios, studded with antiquities from exotic places. Here is a bit of paradise on Jack’s Peak that is one mile from Highway One and the gate to Pebble Beach, or a mere five-minute drive to Carmel and Monterey.

A lifetime of collecting is evident in the construction of this home, which incorporates magnificent carvings and statuary. It is a magical place, Indeed, most say it is sacred space. There is a large teepee in the rear of the property with a medicine wheel and native sweat lodge.

Although luxurious to be sure, it is a comfortable, warm, inviting space. The beautifully appointed gourmet kitchen can accommodate anything from a small family to a professional chef for catering. It also has a computer (24”screen) that operates the Sonos sound system, carrying your favorite music on great speakers to any desired common areas of the house. You can also use the computer, of course, to access your email and the internet. Wifi is available throughout the Hacienda. A grand piano graces the common area.

Fires in the outdoor pits on the terraces are a favorite of our guests, as well as in the two indoor fireplaces. The glow of the fires is a trademark of this home. Fog is no deterrent to a good time at the Hacienda. Wood is plentiful.

This is a family home of people who enjoy entertaining and it was designed to accommodate company while affording privacy if desired. It was completed and occupied in 2006 and the fixtures are modern and of the highest quality, though embedded in items of antiquity. The beds are wonderfully furnished with pillows and feathered duvets. The luxurious bathrooms come with EO shampoos, bath appointments, fluffy white towels and robes. The atmosphere that we cultivate is that of a culturally very interesting environment, but also very relaxed. People have great fun here, and that is what we promote.
There are two other small homes on the estate in secluded places that are occupied by caretakers.

Sleeping Quarters:
The master suite east wing occupies two floors, with its own intimate living area and fireplace on the main floor, and a winding staircase to the upstairs bedroom/bath area. The bedroom has a king size bed, and a bathroom with a luxurious tub for two, a shower, toilet and bidet. There two balconies with seating, where guests can enjoy the sunrise on the east overlooking the pines, or the sunset on the west and Point Lobos.

The guest wing on the west side of the Hacienda has two bedrooms with queen beds and ensuite bathrooms. Both access balconies with views of Point Lobos and Carmel.

The main floor has an additional large bedroom with a Chinese canopy king size bed and a Chinese canopy twin bed. A half bath is nearby. The family has used this room to house children.

The comfortable and roomy media room/ den, with a wide screen television, has a leather sofa bed that opens with a queen mattress. Here is the place to accommodate any late night television/movie buffs. A half bath is just a few steps away.

Near the spa downstairs, with a separate entrance, is the Spa Retreat Studio, a very private suite with two rooms featuring a king size bed, a lounging area and library, plus a full bath. It also has a trundle bed that can sleep two children.

Other amenities:
Outdoor Spa. The hot tub is stainless steel. It is available at all times. The wood-fired sauna will heat in about 20-30 minutes with just a few sticks of firewood. Once experienced, we think you will agree that wood-fired heat is bliss! Adjoining is a wonderful outdoor shower. Guests occupying a room without ensuite bath may choose to have an early morning “tub” and shower in the spa area. There is also an adjacent toilet and sink. There are three herbal bath tubs, again heated with wood fires. Choose your herbs – lavender, rosemary, mint, roses, etc. They all are found in the terraced gardens of the property.
The large Outdoor Kitchen is has a pagoda roof covering a full barbecue, a wood-fired Mugnaini Pizza Oven, and a sink with hot and cold running water. Also on the patio is a large “Horno” (adobe) oven. Choose your method for roasting your turkey, prime rib or leg of lamb – there are several!

On the lower south terraces are ponds with a fountain, but the best part of the ponds is the sound of the frogs - an amazing summertime soothing symphony that may remind you of experiences in the deep south.

Please note that we do not rent the home for weddings or commercial parties.

We hope you will share our appreciation for this special place that Steinbeck called 'Tortilla Flats' and later wrote about in “Pastures of Heaven.”
