I’m happy to introduce my fabulous new listing at one of the most sought after locations in Half Moon Bay. It is at the corner of 1st and Filbert, on the border of Alsace Lorraine and Arleta Park, two popular Half Moon Bay neighborhoods, ONE block to open space, the Coastal Trail* and the beach!

This two-story home is currently used as a 5-bedroom. It’s original layout is intended as a 4-bedroom; separate family room is bright with easy access to the sunny, fenced back yard. Large enough for a picnic table, vegetable garden, active puppy, or just lounging on your own.
This home has a magical quality, possibly created by the vaulted wood-beam ceilings, the centrally placed skylight, the numerous large windows, the mountain views, or perhaps the sounds and sights of the nearby Pacific Ocean, especially while the windows are open or you are sitting on the cozy front deck. Oh, and the huge living room with fireplace offers tremendous southern exposure sunbeams.
As for lifestyle, you will be close to the beach, of course, close to Ocean View Park, a very popular and community oriented playground, close to an elementary school (Hatch), the middle school (Cunha), and less than a mile to Half Moon Bay High School. Like Little League Baseball? Smith Field is fairly close also but not so close that you will hear the cheering of the parents on game days. Like biking or running? The Coastal Trail is very popular for runners, dog-walkers, and cyclists who can travel the trail as much or as little as they want. Parts of the Trail are even used for the popular annual Half Moon Bay Marathon.
About a half mile away to the east is historic downtown Half Moon Bay’s Main Street. Where do I begin sharing the fun you can have there? Watch out for tourists, as many of them have found this gem of a street. Here’s a few favorites, but there is much more…P Cottontail (children’s clothes & gifts), Abode
This home has wonderful tenants that have been living there for several years, so call me if you know of someone who is a potential buyer and would like to see inside. There will be no open houses at this time due to its occupancy.
*HiddenSF/Half Moon Bay Walking Trails: “These gorgeous and surprisingly accessible trails are usually segments of the California Coastal trail.
