Fruit and maple trees and the tip of a sunbrella peek over the top of the fence and gate leading to the front door of this comfortable beachside home. The front patio behind the fence is lined with rose bushes and hydrangeas, with plenty of room for outdoor dining and relaxing.
Inside, an open great room links a kitchen and dining area at one end with a gracious living room at the other, all tied together with solid wood floors and skylights & sun tunnels to let in natural light and sunshine. Thanks to the shielded front patio and fence, windows offer both sunlight and privacy. A pellet stove insert and stone hearth anchor the living room. The open kitchen has been upgraded with a new gas stove, microwave, and dishwasher, all gleaming white. A ceiling fan in the kitchen/dining area moves cool ocean breezes around the open room.
Three bedrooms and two baths complete the floor plan. All the bedrooms feature the same solid wood floors as the living/dining area. The largest bedroom has sliding doors to the back patio ⎯ and instant access to the patio’s sheltered hot tub outside. The other two bedrooms have generously sized windows that offer private peeks at greenery and rose bushes outside.
Extra storage is available in the finished attic space and one-car garage with electric door opener.
Both bathrooms have tiled floors and counters; one has an enclosed tub/shower and the other a shower as well as a curtained washer/dryer area. A third outdoor shower on the side of the house is available for rinsing off sand from the short walk to Rio del Mar beach or local favorites like Pixie’s Deli ⎯ a consistent winner among locals and visitors alike.
This comfortable beach home offers privacy, room for family and visitors, indoor and outdoor entertaining space, and convenient access to the pleasures of relaxed beachside living in the Monterey Bay marine sanctuary.
