$1.9 Million Homes in South Carolina, California and Massachusetts
THE NEW YORK TIMES | 05.01.2019
The one-story house, designed by Ernest Bixler, a local builder, is in the southwest quadrant of Carmel — a seven-by-eight-block section known as the Golden Rectangle, for its proximity to Carmel Beach and town, and the resulting high real estate prices. Typical of the neighborhood, the shingled house is modestly sized and sits on a 4,000-square-foot lot. But it does have the distinction of having been featured in the 1971 Clint Eastwood movie “Play Misty for Me.” (Mr. Eastwood later became the mayor of Carmel.)
