The front of this two-story, Mediterranean-style home features a tiled roof, classic plaster walls covered in vibrant green ivy, lush foliage, and an inviting arched doorway. Inside, the filigreed wrought-iron stair railings, chandeliers, and arched doorways continue the European style and connect the rooms and living spaces — all leading to show-stopping views of Monterey Bay over the neighboring rooftops and treetops, visible from the plentiful decks, balconies and windows on the ocean-facing rear of the house.
The comfortable and spacious living room has a built-in fireplace, wall-to-wall carpeting, arched doorways, and a sliding glass door to a balcony with stunning views of Pacific sunsets. An arched doorway with built-in glass-fronted cabinets and a matching mirror leads to a dining area with the same views through arched windows and to a kitchen featuring artistic tile work and plentiful cabinet space. A spacious deck with built-in seating and wrought-iron lampposts brings the view even closer.
The master bedroom has a French door leading to a private balcony, a vaulted ceiling that makes the room feel even lighter and more spacious, and a closet with mirrored doors that reflect the ocean views across from them. Built-in drawers below and cabinets above the closet offer additional storage. The adjacent sitting room with a built-in set of shelves for books or art pieces, also has dramatic ocean views and a private balcony. Like the kitchen and second bath, the master bath features unique, hand-painted tiles on the floors and around the mirror, wrought-iron fixtures, and custom, built-in cabinetry. Two additional bedrooms offer plenty of room for family members or guests, one adjoining the second bath, and another larger one with a reading alcove, framed by an upstairs bay window.
The beach is just a few blocks away, but its breezes, colors, and views are always on display through the windows and open doorways of this lovely home, evoking an elegant past with modern upgrades.
