Why the Owner Chose Monterey:
Hacienda Serena has everything we wanted in a 'dream' home: views of Monterey Bay plus Santa Cruz hills and Pacific Grove views to the west and of unlimited hills and mountains to the east for great sunrises and sunsets! It is a very sunny location but one can still see fog drifting in and out of the Bay and we love those views. Close to all the wonderful activities on Monterey Peninsula; walk to neighborhood private tennis courts, parks with stream, play areas, picnic tables, and a Regional Park Frog Wetland Preserve. Short 5 minute drive to Monterey Bay and beaches, wharf, Aquarium.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Views of the Pacific Ocean and Monterey Bay; privacy inside and out with lots of decking; beautiful yard, flowers and fountains; gas fireplace for interior atmosphere; outside is a wood-burning chiminea for evenings with your family and friends. Lovely furnishings with great, new kitchen that is easy to work in. Easy 'flow' through the house for the guests. All on one floor, including level out through French doors to 1100 sf of decking and lots of outdoor furniture. OR... sit on the front veranda in the late afternoon with tea or coffee and bask in that special, warm late afternoon sun.
