Pebble Beach


Nestled amid awe-inspiring landscapes and renowned for its world-class golf, Pebble Beach stands as the preeminent public golf course in America. The locale boasts the picturesque 17-Mile Drive, showcasing the stunning blue waters and rugged Pacific Ocean coastline, along with some of the most exceptional residences in the nation. This refined Pebble Beach residence is situated on an elevated hilltop, gracing a gently sloping lot, offering captivating ocean views, and enveloped by majestic Monterey pines.

The Challenge
Noel and his team at McNamee Construction have successfully executed two remodels on the specified property. The initial remodel involved enhancing the upstairs wing, encompassing the master suite, sitting room, and bath. Subsequently, after 12 years, a comprehensive remodel of the entire residence was undertaken, coupled with the re-landscaping of the nearly 2-acre site.

Originating from the late 70s, the house had been adversely affected by the cold and wet coastal climate of Pebble Beach, leading to considerable structural deterioration. The project presented significant challenges, including expanding the house while addressing extensive structural damage. Tasks involved replacing all exterior doors and windows, some of substantial size requiring on-site assembly and glazing, as well as retrofitting a fire sprinkler system—an intricate undertaking. Additionally, the exterior of the house was resurfaced with over 11,000 feet (equivalent to over 2 miles) of exquisite clear 1×6 vertical cedar siding.

The Solution
The proficient team at McNamee Construction comprises skilled craftsmen who adeptly addressed challenges with utmost professionalism and cost-effectiveness. The residence underwent a comprehensive transformation, encompassing thorough examination from top to bottom, expansion, remodeling, and modernization.

The Results
The comprehensive remodel of the entire home reflects a remarkable transformation and successful resolution of complex challenges. Coupled with extensive landscaping on the expansive 2-acre site, it attests to the team’s enduring commitment to excellence. Overall, the outcome speaks to the team’s proficiency, resulting in an elegantly revitalized residence that harmoniously integrates functionality, aesthetics, and enduring quality.
