Old Town Monterey Craftsman with Views

Perched on Spaghetti Hill in Old Town Monterey, this exceptional craftsman home has it all; Location, size, condition, style and views! 

Enjoy ocean views from the living room, heated front porch and even the upstairs bathtub! Thought and attention to detail were put into the recent remodel to modernize the home while maintaining the original charm and character from 1915. The result is a remarkable property in excellent condition, featuring a stunning kitchen, dual-zone heating, upgraded plumbing, electrical and roof and classic elements such as high ceilings, tall baseboards and hardwood floors.

The floor plan is expansive and flexible with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs and a 4th bedroom and 3rd full bath at ground level. Downstairs also has a family room that could function as a 5th bed, home office or gym. The primary suite has its own entrance and deck for an area to privately retreat. Plus, there is a fully permitted and detached ADU with its own kitchen, full bath and laundry for guests or extra income. 

With a one car garage, long driveway and oversized parking area, there is plenty of parking and room for large vehicles. The secondary street access from Colonel Bishop Court at the rear of the property is gated and allows for additional access and convenience.

On almost ¼ acre, the large and spacious grounds create unlimited possibilities for gardening, entertaining or just enjoying peace and quiet. The sunny lot above the fog line includes native landscaping, coastal redwoods, new ipe decks, a covered and heated front porch, private patios, a green house, composting bin, and two large storage sheds.

The outstanding walkability is hard to beat with close access to the shoreline, trails, restaurants/nightlife, shopping and so much more!
