Perched on a bluff midway between Monterey and Santa Cruz, set amid working lettuce and strawberry fields, this 1950s ranch home has commanding views of the tidal wetlands—a haven for birds, otters, seals and other wildlife. From here you can fish, whale watch, kayak, or explore some of the most private beaches in California—but you're just minutes from Moss Landing, a quaint beach town known for great seafood restaurants, cafes and galleries.
Enter and step down to the ocean view living room with a leather sofa and chairs facing a large fireplace. Immediately adjacent, the family room has a second fireplace, a large TV, a game table that seats four, and access to a brick courtyard with chairs for lounging and a pergola for shade. There's also a grassy yard and a second patio with an upholstered sectional and a Genesis gas barbecue.
The property's history as a working ranch home is apparent in the rustic, mid-Century decor: miles of redwood paneling, vintage tile, and extensive use of brick and flagstone. The ranch style kitchen has a dining table for eight (with leaf), a five-burner electric cooktop, built-in double ovens, and a restaurant style refrigerator. A second refrigerator with top freezer is located in the adjoining laundry room, which doubles as a second prep kitchen.
The home has five bedrooms and four full baths (four bedrooms and three baths in the main house and a guest cottage plus bath in the back).
The master suite—with garden, ocean and estuary views—has a King bed, a mirrored dressing area, extensive closets, and an en suite bath with a shower and a "walk-in" tub. The adjoining workout room has a built-in ballet barre (bring your exercise mats!).
The other three bedrooms (Queen, Double, and two XL twins) share two full baths with showers: one is located in the hall; the other is adjacent to the kitchen and laundry room. The private guest cottage has a Queen bed, TV, leather chair, window seat, and a kitchenette. There's bar seating for two along with a four burner electric range, an apartment size refrigerator, and a petite Cuisinart coffee maker.
Located at the end of palm-lined drive, this is the perfect home for lovers of the outdoors and a great base to explore all the natural wonders of the Monterey Peninsula.
