Composer Alan Silvestri is selling his harmonious home in Carmel, CA, for $16.95 million.
Even if his name isn’t instantly recognizable, you’ve heard his work. The 68-year-old musician has had a longtime collaboration with filmmaker Robert Zemeckis, and has composed scores for such hits as “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Cast Away,” and “Forrest Gump.”
Along with his obvious passion for music, Silvestri also made time for wine. The family, in a nod to their Italian roots, founded Silvestri Vineyards, also located in Carmel.
Perched in the Carmel Highlands, the home hits all the right notes. The 13,000-square-foot estate features “an unrivaled combination of privacy, convenience, and serenity,” according to the listing. The gated spread comes with a main house and three guesthouses, with a total of eight beds, 10 bathrooms, and two half-baths.
The living space was “painstakingly restored” by architect Ray Parks. Built in 1921, the home was reimagined using materials such as mahogany, stone, and redwood. Highlights include arched windows, a large living room with walls of glass, formal dining room, open kitchen with dining nook, and stone fireplaces. Of course, there’s plentiful wine storage.
Musical magic also happened here, including in the home office, which boasts a “MUSICIAN AT WORK” sign. Outside, the manicured acreage boasts a swimming pool, tennis court, and patios with ocean views. We’re sure the next owners will be humming with happiness in this sweet retreat.
“The property balances privacy and accessibility,” says listing agent Tim Allen. “You have 14 acres of parklike grounds with these stunning ocean and mountain views surrounding you, and not one neighbor in sight. You can be perfectly happy wandering around your property, swimming in your pool, or playing a game of tennis—then be on Carmel’s beaches in 5 minutes. It’s truly exceptional.”
Silvestri has composed scores for over 100 films and TV shows, including “The Avengers” and “Ready Player One.” The Oscar-nominated artist has garnered Grammy and Emmy awards.
