17 Mile Drive. Pacific Ocean. Pebble Beach. These are all words we associate with luxury. But when all three are found in a single home that has housed President Gerald Ford, a frequent visitor, and former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan? Mind = blown.
Discover just what makes a $23 million price tag in this Spanish Colonial style villa on a three-acre bluff. 1658 Crespi Lane in Pebble Beach, also known as “The House on the Hill” or Casa Ladera in Spanish, is the newest listing from Coldwell Banker Del Monte Realty.
Originally designed by noted architect Robert Farquhar, the Casa Ladera estate was recently featured in Architectural Digest magazine, showcasing the property’s restoration.
The three-story, 10,000-square foot home includes five bedrooms, including two second-floor master suites with panoramic views of Carmel Bay, six and a half baths, five fireplaces, a gourmet kitchen, a hand-carved library, a complete fitness room, and a media room with the latest equipment.

The home has recently undergone an $8 million remodel, including new guest suites, 1,500 square feet of additional living space, and a gallery and loggia enclosing the courtyard and providing a bridge from the library to the master suite, all with stunning ocean views.
Designer touches include tile murals handcrafted by artisans from France, inlay bleached walnut and maple floors, hand painted beam ceilings and marble accents, an antique French silver-gilt mirror above the fireplace, and a silver-and-bronze Régence chandelier. A 17th century French mantle finishes off the expansive living room.
Even the detached guesthouse measures over 840 square feet and includes its own living room, kitchen, laundry room and a full bathroom.
