Come home to this beautiful retreat in an envious location near coastal trails & ocean bluffs.  Tucked away from Highway 1 on the west side in the same neighborhood as the historic Distillery Restaurant, a few country road turns leads you closer to the water and beach houses full of character.  This popular neighborhood, called Seal Cove, is appreciated for its privacy and natural beauty, just a short distance to San Francisco and the Peninsula.
