Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Artist Retired Banker

Why the Owner Chose Monterey, MA, USA:
It has the feel of a wonderful and peaceful retreat. It reminds me of when I grew up in NYC and used to visit the country with my family--the look, the sounds, the simplicity! The house is so easy to maintain and provides a lot of privacy when my children and grandchildren visit. That's me--with 2 of my grandkids--after walking down to The Monterey General Store for ice cream!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
o Walk to beach and large swimming/boating lake o Use of private tennis court within walking distance. o Homeowner's Association also has private dock for swimming and boating o Use of 2 kayaks.
