Tranquilizing views of Monterey Bay beckon from virtually every room in this lovely 3-bedroom, 2-bath hilltop home nestled in a friendly Pacific Grove neighborhood within walking distance of the coastline and just a hop, skip and a jump from the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
The location is ideal, just blocks from downtown Pacific Grove, with its delightful assemblage of shops and restaurants, and the 7-mile walking and bike trail the wends along the shoreline. Monterey, Carmel and Pebble Beach are all less than a 10-minute drive away; Big Sur about 45 minutes.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complementary hors d’oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a tasting at Scheid Winery in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, local organic coffee to start your mornings and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush bathrobes, oversized towels and everything you need for a day at the beach.
A short flight of steps from the sidewalk takes you up to the front entrance and a panelled hallway with a bedroom on the right and the living room on the left. A long, narrow balcony runs along the front of the house affording a spot to breathe in the fresh ocean air and watch the gulls and pelicans soar over the blue waters of the Monterey Bay.
The house combines nostalgic '50s architectural touches – such as lots of built-in wood cabinets – with sophisticated contemporary seashore-themed décor in ocean blues and browns set off by crisp whites. The panelled living room, which has stunning bay views, features wall-to-wall windows, a beamed vaulted ceiling, a gas fireplace, a sofa, loveseat, a wooden coffee table and an antique bureau. Serenade your loved ones or enjoy a family singalong at a grand piano. Relax with popcorn and watch movies on a flat-screen TV.
An adjacent open dining room, also with gorgeous bay views, has a wooden table and chairs for 6.
A telescope is provided for up-close looks at sailboats in the bay. A bank of built-in cabinets (with a pass through window to the kitchen) provide storage for table linens, games and puzzles. Prepare gourmet meals in a handsome kitchen that has a sand-colored tile floor, white tile counter-tops, wooden cabinets and a central work station with a built-in electric stove top. Other appliances include an oven, dishwasher and microwave. Breakfast or casual meals can be enjoyed at a square oak table with 4 Windsor chairs. A nook with a washer and dryer is nearby. A back door leads to an enclosed patio -- partially framed in glass to let in the water views -- equipped with a picnic table and grill. Flowering plants such as primula, camellias and roses provide bright spots of color.
The master bedroom, with a large window that looks out to the lush plants on the back deck, has a nautical theme with deep ocean blue and white patterned coverlet and pillows on the king bed, wooden end tables with tripod table lamps and an armchair. The master bath, with white and pale yellow tiles and navy blue towels, and has an enclosed shower.
A second bedroom has a king has 2 coverlets, one white and one turquoise blue, a white wooden dresser and bedside tables and table lamps with metal bases shaped like tree branches.
