                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: My husband Barney and I love this Ocean-front Beach House. We are in the real estate business and have seen and sold many, many properties. We have many grndchildren. They all love to come to Pacific Grove and visit our Beach House. Formerly bakers and a physicist our latest real estate careers have enabled us to help people find the homes of their dreams and solve their real estate problems. Real estate allows us to really get to know our clients. We are friendly and fun-loving and most of all we love people. Our clients become our friends and clients for life! We know you'll enjoy our ocean-front beach house as much as we do!! Barney and Gerry

                  Why the Owner Chose Pacific Grove:
                  We bought this house because it has the MOST spectacular views in Pacific Grove!! Our ocean-front beach house, formerly Joan Baez' Beach House, is located between Point Pinos and Lover's Point...absolutely spectacular views!! We bought it the same day we saw it. Lover's Point Park and Beaches, rental kayaks, rental bicycles/surreys and snack shop are just a few steps from the house. The Famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row is just a short walk North of the house along fabulous ocean-front walks. The Natural History Museum,the Asilomar, the Butterfly Grove, Art Galleries, Boutique Shops, Antique Shops,Upscale Resale shops and a myriad of coffee shops and great restaurants are just a short walk away. If you prefer you can rent a bicycle or surrey and tour the town on wheels....or bring your own. We have a carport that you can store your vehicle(s) in. Pacific Grove is a well-kept secret but one you'll want to share with all your friends. We have many clients that come here again and again every year. They love it as much as we do!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Wake up to the morning sun streaming through the clerestory windows in your bedroom. The bed is one of the most comfortable beds we own (we bought it with the house from Joan Baez..she really knew how to pick a comfortable bed!! We added a 3 inch special topper so you feel like you're sleeping on a cloud. The morning sunrise over the ocean is spectacular from the living room and deck areas. I like to eat breakfast outside on the deck feeling like I'm enjoying breakfast with the sea otters and cormorants and Barney prefers to sit inside eating at the dining table ... we only have a window between us but we both have incredible ocean-front tables!!
