                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1940

                  About the owner: This beautiful property was purchased by my grandfather and grandmother back in the 1940's. The home was built by my grandfather with help from loving family and friends. My grandfather learned contracting working on sites like Hurst Castle under Julia Morgan and Superintendant George Loorz. My grandmother was born in Thousand Oaks, CA. Her grandmother came to California in a wagon-train around 1864. My grandparents met in Thousand Oaks, married and settled here in Monterey CA. They built a large family and a large homestead which we now call Rancho Buena Vista (the name given to it by my grandparents). wedding pictures taken at the property

                  Why the Owner Chose Monterey:
                  It's beautiful views and botanical grounds resinate the love and care that was put into this home when it was built by my ancesters in the 1940's. One can sense the love here and the peace. One can still feel the good times that were had here and are still had by family and friends! wedding pictures taken on the property

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We have a large house that is beautifully decorated. We have horses grazing just across the fence. We have apple trees producing fruit to feed the horses who are very glad to be given a fresh apple. Views of Mount Toro and Jack's Peak and the famous Tarpy flats. When the wind is blowing our way you may hear the sea lions call coming from the Monterey Harbor. We are close to everything yet far enough away so that it's quiet and country. At night you may hear the coyote's call and in the evening you'll hear the doves coo. wedding pictures taken at the property
