It is definitely not haunted, a beautiful home in one of California’s most picturesque coastal towns where movie stars and top executives live. It was, however, where one of the scariest scenes in movie history was filmed.
Though most of Clint Eastwood’s film Play Misty For Me was shot in Monterey, California, the final scene, the one that most movie fans remember, was shot from a stunning cliff side home in Carmel - about 200 feet above the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean below. There’s nothing like the vision of a knife-wielding stalker to make you rethink your possible enemies. And as stunning as this house actually is, can you ever forget the mental image of the stabber careening through the glass door and falling to her death on the jagged cliffs? Could you stand next to the railing of the beautiful deck looking out at the enchanting view without constantly checking behind you?
Having undergone a recent $2 million renovation, the house has new floors, top-of-the-line materials and fixtures and other major updates. Located on a private, fenced and gated 1.25 acres of rugged coastline, the 2,781-square-foot house has three bedrooms and three baths and the detached guest house has one bedroom and one bath. The open-living floor plan, glass walls and large skylights fill the entire house with light and bird’s-eye views of the Pacific Ocean coastline, crashing waves and wind-sculpted trees. Don’t forget, it was just a movie. Asking price is $11.9 million.
