This home has that special something – a combination of good bones, character, setting, and great Sellers who have been excellent stewards of the property. A jewel of a beach house, where you will feel like taking off your shoes to stay a while. A single-story “cottage” style home that feels big, approximately 1100 square feet, this home has been enjoyed by a family of 4 for the last 20 years. Two boys grew up here and attended the local public schools, just like my own children.
Being able to grow up in such a special area is a gift, one that is not fully understood until one moves away from here. This neighborhood makes it easy to take advantage of the natural resources that are just out the door. However, once at home, you may not want to leave too eagerly. Gorgeous natural light and beautiful interior colors wash over the gleaming hardwood floors, crisp white open beam ceilings, and charming built-ins. The built-in bookcases are from Scandinavian Designs and built-in seating in the dining area along with the Birch cabinet faces were made by a craftsman from Alaska. The dining area table was custom built by Michael Singer Woodworking from Felton, CA.
The house alone is enough to get excited…but wait…there is much more to see outside! Idyllic outdoor living includes a gated front garden with fire pit & seating on beautiful Ipe hardwood, while enjoying the sights and sounds of a small fish pond and beautiful and drought-tolerant plantings. There is a private patio off the kitchen and dining area, with direct access and beautiful southern exposure. Plus, there’s a veggie garden, surf board and bicycle storage, and even more to love once you see it for yourself.
The location is ideal for someone who wants to immerse themselves in coastal recreation. You will be near Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, the Moss Beach Distillery Restaurant, the Pillar Point bluff trail – which will lead you to the greater Coastside “Coastal Trail”, the Devil’s Slide Trail, and local surf spots of varying skill levels, body surfing, mountain biking, just to name a few. If you want to be close to The City but not IN it, it’s approximately 20 minute drive away, with an enviable commute through the Tom Lantos Tunnels and bridge. For a commuter, living in a location like this is what weekends were made for. If you work from home, well, you’re one of the lucky ones.
