Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We're a central valley couple who have always loved to visit the Monterey area. We finally took the plunge and bought this beautiful house in 2013 after looking for many months. We eventually plan to retire here at least part time and until them have decided to share our house with others who love the Monterey area.

Why the Owner Chose Monterey:
For us, the house is perfectly sized and perfectly located. You can sit in the kitchen/living room/dining room area and literally have views through the forest to the city lights and Monterey Bay. A spacious deck allows similar views. The house is very light, attract and comfortable.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Living in the forest with a view of the ocean. It is the best of both worlds
