This cottage—complete with a white picket fence—looks like it came straight out of a storybook. And the location couldn’t be more enchanting: in just a few blocks you can be shopping, dining, or sipping a latte at one of Pacific Grove’s quaint coffee shops—or communing with seals and sea otters on the coastal recreational trail.
There’s a peek of ocean from the front steps, and a huge backyard with a dining table, barbecue, and four Adirondack chairs around a wood-burning firepit for cozy evenings under the stars. The living room has hardwood floors and a barrel ceiling (the fireplace is unusable, but it's stocked with decorative candles for ambiance), the dining room seats six, and the kitchen features stainless appliances and a new five-burner gas cooktop. Both bedrooms have Queen sleigh beds, and the bath has a tub/shower combination.
From the annual Butterfly Parade to the apple trees around Caledonia Park, there's a reason Pacific Grove is called "America's last hometown." A more casual—but no less charming—alternative to Carmel, Pacific Grove is a seaside enclave of restored Victorians and beach bungalows. And the walkable downtown has something for everyone: boutiques, galleries, antique and consignment shops, a cinema, a bookstore—and too many coffeehouses to count.
