There’s even a giant kitchen island

Perhaps we’ve spent too many hours binge-watching HBO’s Big Little Lies, but this gorgeous five-bedroom, eight-bath home looks ready for a TV debut. Located near downtown Carmel on the Point Lobos coastline—just 15 minutes from Monterey, the setting for the hit show—the 6,670-square-foot home designed by Studio Schicketanz is a series of boxy cedar-wood and limestone blocks embedded into the hillside.

Like the show-stopping seaside homes owned by Big Little Lies characters Madeline, Celeste, and Renata, this neutral colored abode is all about the picturesque panorama. Exposed green rooftops sprout native plants, and a third-level living space is cantilevered to maximize sea views looking out to the bay (framed by the region’s iconic cypress tress, of course).

The master suite features nine-foot glass doors that slide open to a deck, and other glamorous perks include an elevator, four-car garage, and outdoor showers. The kitchen, too, is sleek enough for an HBO appearance; a large island, top-notch appliances, and bar stools for three hint of family discussions and high-end dinners.

And similar to the houses on Big Little Lies, this home is all about California’s iconic indoor-outdoor living. A single-story waterfall sets the stage, and you can imagine the Hollywood-level parties that could be had adjacent to the infinity pool.

Looking to live it up in California like the Monterrey Five? 230 Highway 1 is on the market now for $15,950,000.
