                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1954

                      About the owner: I grew up in Pacific Grove and have always loved the hometown feel. People are so friendly and the shops and restaurants are wonderful. Great small town to walk around and enjoy all the sights. The Monterey Bay is one block away in which you can ride a bike down the recreational trail or walk on it to enjoy the sights and smells of the Bay. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is also within walking distance as well as Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf and downtown Pacific Grove. Very close to famous Pebble Beach 17 Mile Drive, Spanish Bay, Pebble Beach Lodge and famous Carmel for dining and shopping or just wandering around.

                      Why the Owner Chose Pacific Grove:
                      There is just so much to do from this spot in Pacific Grove. I grew up in this neighborhood and have always loved it so much. My family has so much history in this area. My parents lived in this home for over 50 years and enjoyed every day of it. We have updated the home with refinished hardwood floors, tile entry, new sofa and loveseat, new Milgard windows, freshly painted inside and out, new blinds, crown molding, new backyard bar, new gardens, new GE 4 burner electric range, microwave, new coffee pot, dishes etc. Everything freshened up and updated for our guests.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Great small town to walk around and enjoy all the sights. The Monterey Bay is one block away in which you can ride a bike down the recreational trail or walk on it to enjoy the sights and smells of the Bay. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is also within walking distance as well as Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. Also close to Laguna Seca and Carmel Mission! Wonderful Sunday morning Catholic church services at the Carmel Mission. Just meander through Carmel and follow to the river where the Carmel Mission is.
