Pacific Grove house description

No need to fight over who gets the ocean view in this fabulous 6-bedroom, 4-bath home on a private, rocky beach! With 270 degrees of blue-water views, four of the bedrooms have full views of the Pacific and Monterey Bay. The fifth and sixth bedrooms have a quiet, courtyard view just in case somebody doesn't like to go to sleep to the sound of the waves, or watch the moon sinking into the sea at night.

We are minutes from Carmel and Cannery Row in Monterey, and Pebble Beach is our neighbor.

We have a fully stocked gourmet kitchen - and the cook gets an ocean view, too. Dining table seats 10, 14 with extension. Foosball, pinball, ping pong, Legos, art and drawing supplies, puzzles, games and other toys (including mini pool and 'air hockey') for the kids. Steinway grand piano for the musically inclined. Off-street parking for five cars is available.

The Spanish Bay Club is a lovely 20-minute walk (3-minute drive) away, along the world-famous Pacific Grove recreation trail. Guest club privileges for tennis, exercise and weight room, heated pool, sauna, steam, massage, and hot tub are available. Surf, snorkel, or comb the beautiful beaches and coves. Make S'mores at a bonfire on our secluded beach.

Nice restaurants just two blocks away. Fabulous Pacific Grove golf course is across the street. Downtown Pacific Grove is 1.5 miles away, with movie theater, farmers' market, restaurants, coffee houses, antiques, shops, bakeries and natural history museum. The world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and the American Tin Cannery outlets are about 2 miles away, as is Monterey's Fishermen's Wharf. Wine tasting in Carmel Valley is 30 minutes away. Big Sur is about 45 minutes away. John Steinbeck Museum is about 35 minutes away. Our home is perfect for your family reunion, corporate retreat, girls' vacation, intimate wedding or romantic hideaway!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1989

                  About the owner: My family has been blessed to spend 24 years in one of only two beachfront homes in Pacific Grove. You will love staying here, too!

                  Why the Owner Chose Pacific Grove:
                  We bought our home because it was the only home directly on the beach in all of Pacific Grove. It was extremely private, with a golf course across the street, State Park surrounding us, and the blue Pacific as our backyard. We have a full acre of private property. Another residence has since been built next door, on its own acre of land. A portion of our stone driveway is shared by both homes.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I love to look out my window and see the full moon casting sparkling light onto the dark waves as it sinks to the horizon. On clear evenings, the sunsets are spectacular. The morning sun casts a pink glow on the waves. And when it is foggy, there is a magic about the property that is enhanced with a roaring wood blaze in the fireplace, or a glass of wine in the hot tub.
