Half Moon Bay cottage description

The house is on a small, inclined lot with 1 bedroom on upper level and 2 bedrooms on the lower level. Cozy, wood-burning stove provides generous heat throughout upper floor. Baseboard heating throughout. The studio kitchen has maple cabinets and granite counters with all the expected amenities: utensils, pots, pans and basic cooking ingredients.

High quality furniture throughout the house. A large, multi-level lower patio for outdoor gatherings, picnics, and soothing ocean viewing. Ideal for couples, retreats, or a gathering of friends and family. As the only house on the cul-de-sac, there's plenty of parking. We have furnished this house with furniture and art for our guests and ourselves (we visit often). You'll not be disappointed here.

              Location

              Car: Recommended

              This is a romantic ocean house at the end of a road with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. There is a great sense of privacy and seclusion with large windows along ocean side.

              You'll soon see why this house is centered in most of the movie-making that has occurred on this coast. Scenes from 'Memior of a Giesha', Bandits, and the just-released movie, 'Chasing Mavericks' were all taken place very near to the house. The latest movie having studio trailers parked right on our very street.

              Seasonal Weather Note: November through March are precious times near the ocean with more dramatic waves and clearer skies.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: I've come to realize how much I enjoy enhancing the value of a home, so I now call myself a 'property manager'. My wife, Carol, is a first grade teacher and we also have 3 children who have young families in Calif. and Indiana. When I'm not playing with property design, I'm probably out training on my bike or reading or writing something. Owning this piece of 'Ocean Heaven', that we also get to enjoy, makes us feel deeply fortunate indeed.

              Why the Owner Chose Half Moon Bay:
              We never planned, in a million years, to buy an ocean side property. Yet, one day after visiting at the nearby lighthouse, I expressed a long-held desire to 'just see inside' a house perched beside the Pacific. Within minutes a 'For Sale' sign appeared and we couldn't resist. We were knocked out by the view... and the price! It was not just a 'slice of the ocean'... but a panoramic view! Recovering several hours later, we started having 'Purpose of Life' conversations. Soon, the house was ours.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              It's intimate and simple with many private spaces to savor. The Writer's Cottage below the lower patio is a world away.
