Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I am an avid traveler and explorer. I enjoy doing a variety of outdoor activities most of which are readily available within a short distance right here on the central coast. While I’ve spent the past several years getting to know the area, I’ve only scratched the surface and look forward to many more years of further exploring this wonderful location.

Why the Owner Chose San Luis Obispo:
After an extensive search inside and outside the U.S. for the perfect 'get-a-way spot', California's central coast eventually hit the radar screen. Then, I spent four winters RV camping in the area. During this time I explored just about every neighborhood between Nipomo and Paso Robles. Eventually, San Luis Obispo hit all of the criteria points. The next task was to hone in on exactly which neighborhood offers the best fit. I wanted to be just off the beaten path to avoid too much downtown hoopla, yet still be able to easily walk to all of the amenities. As it turns out, the Jennifer street walking bridge offers a perfect buffer that establishes the edge of downtown on one side and a quiet neighborhood setting on the other. Once the historic railroad district was in my sights, it was a matter of waiting for the right home to hit the market. Then, one day during one of many neighborhood searching tours, a for sale sign appeared on the perfect house, the perfect lot and in the perfect location. The rest, as they say, is history. Along with having a great property, I'm also excited to be able to easily hop on a train and go north or south to literally get anywhere else I want to go without the hassle of driving.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Once you get to see the inside and outside of this house, there's more to grab your attention nearby. For starters, the property backs up to Terrace Hill open space. From the back of the lot, you make a left which leads you to a hiking trail. While it's a little bit of a steep climb to get to the top (approx 5 min), you'll be nicely rewarded as you take in the birds eye view of the entire city and beyond. From this vantage point, the overall scenery reminds me of a life size railroad set that a hobbyist would replicate and build in a garage or basement. Additionally, if you trek up for a sunrise or sunset, the colors can be spectacular. Another nearby attraction is the easy access to the bike path which starts at the Jennifer Street Bridge. From here you can go for a stroll or ride along the path. Or, take a visit to Sinheimer park (approximately ¾ mile). At the park you’ll find tennis courts, a public swimming facility and even Frisbee golf. In the summer, you can also catch a Blues baseball game, the peanuts are great!
