Monterey house description

Our property has two Guesthouse Suites nestled amid lawns and gardens: EAST OF EDEN SUITE is a large guesthouse with a luxury master bedroom and private half bath, large sunroom living area, full kitchen, and full bath (sleeps 6). CANNERY ROW SUITE is a smaller studio-type guesthouse with a large bedroom, separate kitchen area, and full bath (sleeps 4).

The two Guesthouse Suites may be rented separately or rented together to sleep up to 10 people — 2 large master bedroom suites with additional convertible beds, large sunroom living room with convertible bed(s), 2 kitchens, 2.5 bathrooms, and 2 private patio areas (see sleeping arrangement options below).

EAST OF EDEN GUESTHOUSE SUITE
(Suite can sleep up to 6)
Our East of Eden Guesthouse has a spectacular sunroom with views of surrounding hills. There's plenty of comfortable seating and a full-size dining table—you'll feel as if your dining in a lovely garden. The sofas in the sunroom are deep and comfortable — a relaxing place sip a glass of wine at the end of a busy day, curl up with a book, or take a nap. Outside is a large fountain and garden areas—peaceful and relaxing with the sound of water and birdsong. The large private patio area adds additional living space with outdoor furniture and gas barbecue.

EAST OF EDEN has a luxury master bedroom with a king-size bed, sitting area with 2 sofas and a large TV, private half bath, and electric fireplace. The bed faces a beautiful view of the garden and surrounding hills. For additional sleeping in the master bedroom there is a queen convertible bed.

In addition to the master bedroom, the house has a full bath and a sunny full kitchen with breakfast nook. The large sunroom (which can be closed off via a sliding glass door from the kitchen) can be used for an additional sleeping area with a convertible king-size bed and a full size sofa futon. Please note that during the winter months, the sunroom is usually very comfortable during the daytime but cools off at night and cannot be heated (just too much glass and high ceiling).

CANNERY ROW GUESTHOUSE SUITE
(Suite can sleep up to 4)
The Cannery Row Guesthouse Suite (which may be rented separately on in conjunction with the East of Eden described above) is a large, studio suite with separate kitchen room and full bath. There is a queen-size bed, flat-screen TV, and large walk-in closet. A queen size convertible sofa bed provides an additional sleeping option.

The kitchen, which is separated by a sliding glass door from the bedroom, has plenty of cabinet space and full-sized sink, 2 studio-sized refrigerators, microwave, portable electric burner, and coffee pot.

This guesthouse has its own private patio entry area with gas BBQ -- separated from other guesthouse by lovely wood lattice and plants.

LOCATION
We are in John Steinbeck's celebrated Pastures of Heaven area (between Monterey and Salinas) is within Monterey Peninsula's prized sunbelt area. It may be foggy in Monterey, Carmel or Pebble Beach, but just 20 minutes away at your garden guesthouse, you'll often have sunny days.

The property is 4 fully fenced acres, with expansive lawn areas, koi pond, and gardens just outside your door— a perfect place to barbecue . . . or just relax with a book and sunbathe when weather permits. You have the feel of being in the country but all the convenience of being close to all the wonders of the Monterey Peninsula: celebrated golf courses, shopping, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Big Sur Coast, and music events, such as the Monterey Jazz Festival. And if you're a racing fan, this property is ideal! We're just 5 minutes from the Laguna Seca Raceway!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: Elizabeth Ward has lived in the Monterey/Carmel area for more than 40 years. She moved to the Corral de Tierra area 13 years ago, finding this area a hidden, unspoiled gem.

                  Why the Owner Chose Monterey:
                  Most people know that the Monterey Bay area is famous for its natural beauty and popular events, but locals know it also has very quirky microclimates. Sunbelt properties close to the ocean, like Corral de Tierra and Carmel Valley, are prized and at a premium. Summer days can be cold and foggy in Pebble Beach or Carmel, and just a few minutes drive inland finds a warm, sunny day. A gloomy day in Salinas turns into a pocket of sunshine a few miles west where we are. The Corral de Tierra area, also known as John Steinbeck's Pastures of Heaven, is a sunny jewel. I've lived on the Peninsula for 40 years — in Carmel Valley, Pebble Beach, Monterey, Pacific Grove — and this is the area I chose for my dreamhome and retirement.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We are 5 minutes away from the main entrance to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. And we are just down the road from The River Road Wine Trail -- a country drive that winds through 12 exceptional vineyards and wine-tasting rooms. A very special afternoon! Hikers and Mountain Bikers will love the Fort Ord National Monument, which runs behind our property. A trail head is just down the road from us!
