Restaurants, shops and art galleries are just steps away from this historic house in the heart of Pacific Grove, a lovely two-story residence that offers easy access to all the best that “America’s Last Hometown” has to offer.
The 1,500 square feet pet-friendly home, a winner of the Pacific Grove Heritage Design Award, has been extensively remodeled so that while it retains its gracious past, it also offers modern conveniences at its spectacular location. Just a 3 minute walk to award-winning Passion Fish Restaurant and a 10 minute walk to the beach or to the butterfly groves, it’s also only 5 minutes by car to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, 10 minutes to shopping in Carmel-by-the-Sea, and 15 minutes to golf and fine dining in Pebble Beach.
A brick pathway leads visitors underneath a magnificent Monterey pine and up to the front porch which offers seating on a beautiful Butler plantation bench. The entry way opens into the cozy living room, a perfect place for conversation or watching TV on a 50-inch HDTV.
Casual with an upscale elegance and earth-tone colors, the décor is embellished with coastal touches, and the feeling is enhanced by comfortable red leather couches surrounding a gas fireplace, which has an additional hearth on the other side facing the kitchen. Hardwood floors can be found throughout the ground floor, which includes the living room, kitchen, and dining room.
The large kitchen includes newer appliances, a double kitchen sink with a pewter goose neck faucet, and a combination microwave/convection oven. A central island offers an additional small sink and counter seating for two. White tile counter tops and whitewashed cabinetry add a contemporary rustic touch, and the adjacent dining room offers seating for eight at a beautiful Geranium leg table with optional extension leaf.
