The true Pacific Grove experience can be found at this historic cottage just a short block from the beach, which is also within easy 5-10 minute walking distance of the quaint downtown, restaurants and galleries of America’s Last Home Town as well as to Cannery Row, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Recreation Trail along the bay.
The 900-square-foot home known as the A.H. Hewitt & H.A. Walton House was originally built in 1915, but has been recently updated to provide modern conveniences while still keeping all of its Victorian era charm.
The two-bedroom, one-bath home features a white picket fence and brick steps to the front of the house, where a large living room and dining room with ocean views is the perfect place to gather around the Carmel stone gas fireplace to read, play games or watch the 42-inch HDTV. A modern heating and cooling system was recently installed, keeping the interior temperature just right no matter the weather.
The cottage is less than a 5-minute walk from the Monterey Bay Recreation Trail, and just a 10-minute walk to Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, or a 10-minute drive to 17-Mile Drive and beautiful Pebble Beach, or 15 minutes to shopping and dining in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary cheese and wine or sparkling cider, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea 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, spa robes and beach gear.
The coastal eclectic style of the interiors combines vintage and modern elements for a casual vibe, with tones of blue and white predominating, in addition to easy-care pinewood floors, high ceilings, and original artwork and paintings throughout. An antique table with distressed finish provides a dining or game-playing area for up to six people.
The large galley kitchen features a vintage china cabinet as well as new appliances, including a five-burner gas stove. A laundry area with washer and dryer is available as well.
The deck behind the house is surrounded by a wood fence for privacy, and is an ideal place for barbecuing on a gas grill, or enjoying the afternoon sun around the patio table. The newly landscaped yard includes succulents, bougainvillea, flax and bamboo.
The master bedroom features a queen bed with an antique wooden headboard and white quilted bedspread. A second larger bedroom offers a full bed.
The newly updated bath has a shower with sunflower shower head, white subway tile walls and tile flooring.
Parking is available in the one-car garage, which also has room for beach gear and bicycles, and there is an additional parking space in the driveway.
