                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: We are a family of four: Matt, Fran, Devon and Dillon. We love the beach, and we love to travel! Matt works in IT, is British & recently became an American citizen and loves to surf. Fran grew up in New Jersey, recently retired from corporate life and enjoys running. Devon and Dillon were both born in the Bay Area, but named after a couple of our favorite places in the UK and the US.

                  Why the Owner Chose Pacifica:
                  But we love it for its natural beauty, diversity, culture and innovation. Only in Pacifica can you enjoy the ocean waves and surf and get to SFO and one of the world's most beloved cities in 15 minutes!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love this neighborhood and were specifically looking here for a home due to its proximity and walkability to the beach. We fell in love with the house for its openness, with its 16' ceilings and circular and flowing floor plan. Also, the house sits uniquely at the bottom of Cattle Hill, part of Sweeney Ridge Golden Gate National Park, so there is nothing behind the house except the Hill. From our viewing platform and various locations within the house, you can see and hear the ocean waves.
