We've owned this 1600 sq. ft. (487m) home in Pacific Grove for 27+ years. A few years ago, we hired professionals to help us start over and upgrade the whole thing. It took 10 months to redo everything, we ended up keeping only 3 pieces of sheet rock intact. So believe me, it's renovated.
It's a very quiet neighborhood at night - so no barking dogs Please. When there's ocean swells you can hear the buoys. And on really quiet nights you can hear seals barking.
The deck is delightful. In fair weather you can catch some morning sun and the house acts as a shield from the prevailing breezes. It's a delightful place to breakfast, play on the computer or just feel like you're in a treehouse.
And, yes, it's professionally cleaned right before your arrival!
Come View My Art!: I am a fine arts oil-painter specializing in scenes, critters and kelp from Monterey Bay. You'll see my studio that's part of the house - and you'll see various works hanging in 'Kelp House'. And like any artist - It's all for sale!
As life-long scuba divers we plan to retire here one day.
Pacific Grove is a historic California coastal community. Yes, it's quaint - lots of Victorian homes. Our house still fits the neighborhood but has been completely renovated and customized for comfortable living. Plus we're so close to the coast and aquarium.
