This cozy home perches on a bluff overlooking Monterey Bay; nothing but a deck, a garden, and a walking path interrupt the gorgeous view of the seemingly endless ocean beyond the deck’s railing. Aptos’s famous cement ship is visible to the left, along with the graceful curve of the Bay’s coastline towards Moss Landing and Monterey on one side and Capitola on the other.
The home’s interior takes full advantage of the view. A carpeted, wood-paneled living room with exposed beam ceilings looks out at the deck and ocean through sliding glass doors flanked by additional large windows, with a brick-lined fireplace along one wall. Opposite the fireplace, still looking out on the ocean, are a dining area and kitchen with tiled counters and wood cabinetry. The kitchen connects to the dining area and also has a smaller window-sized opening to the living room, which can be open or closed with louvered wood shutters.
The three carpeted bedrooms continue the cozy wood paneling and exposed beam ceilings found in the living room area. The master bedroom features the same spectacular ocean views as the main living area through two sets of windows. Levered wood closet doors line the hallway between rooms. The home features two bathrooms, one with an enclosed shower and the other an enclosed tub.
Imagine Monterey Bay as your back yard, the first thing you see when you wake up, the backdrop to all your meals, and the last thing you see at night. That’s what this unique vantage point offers — a perfect, uninterrupted, 180-degree span of coastline from a height that gives you the best seat in the house, every hour of every day.
