Pacific Grove house description

This beautiful three story, recently remodeled Victorian home (originally built in 1902) transports you back to the 19th century while providing all the amenities and comforts of the 21st.

The Historic Lavender House is centrally located on a quiet, peaceful street in Pacific Grove's historic Retreat District. Downtown Pacific Grove’s finest restaurants and shops are located just down the street. Monterey Bay’s world famous Aquarium and Lover’s Point are a brief stroll away. For the kids there is the family-friendly Caledonia Park right around the corner.

Lover's Point and the newly renovated Beach House restaurant is just a short stroll away. The Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Links and the Point Pinos Lighthouse are located immediately to the north, the Asilomar Conference Grounds and State Beach are found just as easily to the west, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, and Fisherman’s Wharf are located one-half mile to the south. 17 Mile Drive and Pebble Beach are just around the corner, Monterey’s historic downtown district, Carmel’s world-famous shopping, and the Pebble Beach golf links are all within a few minutes drive. Carmel Valley, Point Lobos State Reserve, and Big Sur are all an easy drive south, providing your friends and family with stunning vistas along California’s most beautiful coastal highway.

The Historic Lavender House accommodates up to 6 guests (5 adults maximum) and has three bedrooms offering high quality 'Sleep Number' beds. The two primary bedrooms each offer queen beds and the loft bedroom provides one twin day bed and one trundle bed. The second floor deck opens out to soothing views of Pacific Grove and Monterey Bay. The third floor loft bedroom offers even grander vistas of the surrounding area.

The living room includes a High Definition Flat Panel TV, Tivo DVR, Netflix, Pandora, and a Blu-Ray player (along with a library of movies for your viewing). Wireless high-speed Internet access is available throughout, and the kitchen is fully stocked and outfitted with modern appliances, cooking utensils, plates, glasses and silverware. A high-capacity washer and dryer is available for your use, as is the attached single car garage.

You are likely to see deer passing by your front porch in the early morning hours or catch a glimpse of seals and otters during your stroll to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Walk, run, or bicycle along the coastal bike trail as you make your way to Cannery Row or downtown historic Monterey. Championship golf, whale-watching, hiking, biking, wine-tasting, shopping, dining, kayaking, first-class spas, breath-taking nature… it’s all here waiting for you!

Step back to a slower time. Combine the comforts of the present while experiencing the past by staying at the Historic Lavender House, the most beautiful little Victorian in Pacific Grove.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: Here we are in front of our Victorian Home Christmas 2012! We love Pacific Grove, the Monterey Bay area, and the beauty of Victorian Homes and want to provide our guests a relaxing and happy experience in the area we love so much.

                      Why the Owner Chose Pacific Grove:
                      The Historic Lavender House is a charming and comfortable Victorian very close to downtown Pacific Grove and surrounding attractions.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee on the sunny front porch, or take a short stroll downtown to the local bookstores and coffee shops! We recommend dinner at the Red House Cafe, Jennine's, or Passion Fish; lunch at the Beach House (Lover's Point), Red House Cafe, or Pacific Thai; and breakfast at Toastie's... all within two short blocks from the Historic Lavender House!
