Remodeled Monterey Home for Sale in Alta Mesa Neighborhood
New or completely remodeled homes on the Monterey peninsula are hard to come by, especially in Alta Mesa, which happens to be one of the best neighborhoods with some of the most expensive real estate for sale in Monterey, CA. That makes this newly remodeled Alta Mesa Neighborhood home for sale in the heart of Monterey that much more attractive!
778 Via Mirada, located in the Alta Mesa neighborhood of Monterey, CA started life as a single level post adobe home back in 1954. After 20 plus years of sitting vacant, it was recently striped down to the studs and brought back to life as a modern version of a California ranch style home. Virtually no surface or system was left untouched inside this home. New windows were installed throughout, along with new electrical systems, updated plumbing, two new HVAC systems and natural gas was added to what used to be an all-electric house. The interior walls are now covered in light grey Venetian plaster and the floors are a beautiful wire brushed hickory through. The home was even upgraded to include fire sprinklers!
The exterior of the home is like new as well. The roof and flashing is all brand new along with the gutters. The exterior walls, which are now a smooth colored stucco finish, covers the aging adobe underneath, making the exterior walls of this home amazingly well insulated from temperature swings as well as sound. What used to be the ugliest home in the Alta Mesa neighborhood is now handsome again!
Today, when you walk inside, a modern, single level home awaits you with all new finishes and a smart floor plan that takes advantage of its 2400+ square feet. There is a large great room with an open kitchen design that is great for entertaining. The living room has high ceilings with exposed beams while the kitchen and dining areas enjoy lower ceilings and a feeling of more intimacy. The fireplace is covered in split-faced stone, adding texture and just the right amount of color to the room to tie everything together. There are lots of new Milgard windows, a set of French doors and even back door made of glass that takes advantage of the sunnier days this part of Monterey has to offer.
The kitchen has a traditional yet contemporary look to it with satin white shaker style cabinets, Jenn-Air Pro Style stainless steel appliances, a rich mocha limestone countertop and backsplash and a Carrera marble covered center island. This kitchen is set up to entertain, with a long peninsula and a center island with room for plenty of bar stools for friends to gather around while you prepare meals. In addition to the abundance of counter space, there is a ton of storage with cabinets galore including a pantry area with more cabinets plus a wine frig by the back door!
The Master Suite
You are going to love the master suite in this home! Although it is ample in size, it has an intimate feeling to it with its Venetian plaster coved ceilings, wire brushed wood floors, cozy fireplace and French doors looking out to the back courtyard and firepit. It also has all of the modern features you are looking for in the master bath. Dual vanities, of course, with her side including a makeup station with his vanity on the other side of the room…out of her way! The walk-in shower features a stacked stone accent wall that becomes the focal point of the room. The marble countertops polish off the room. Oh, and I almost forgot, there is a large walk-in closet with plenty of built-ins.
In addition, the main house has two more nice sized bedrooms and two more full bathrooms along with a laundry room and a two-car garage attached by a breezeway.
The 1 bedroom, 1 bath guesthouse comes in at just below 1000 square feet! Everyone that walks into it says the same thing…”I could live in this!” And it is true, most people have lived in something smaller in their life! With a small kitchenette that includes a dishwasher and frig, plus a sink with a limestone countertop and a pantry! It is open to the entire room which I flanked by a huge adobe brick fireplace. There is a nice sized bedroom, a closet and a full bathroom in this almost self-contained unit.
If you are looking for new construction in Monterey, this Alta Mesa home for sale just might be the one. Make sure it is on your short list of homes to see.
Alta Mesa is a small neighborhood located near Monterey Peninsula College and Del Monte Shopping Center. Located just west of HWY 1 in the city of Monterey the Alta Mesa neighborhood offers owners of real estate easy access to downtown Monterey, Carmel, Carmel Valley and Pacific Grove making it an ideal place to live if you are looking for a full time Monterey residence in a private, upscale Monterey neighborhood. Many Alta Mesa homes will have nice views of Monterey Bay which is always welcome in Monterey real estate.
Owners of real estate in Alta Mesa can expect larger lots than most of the Monterey area homes offer and an extremely quiet and private neighborhood. I have shown this neighborhood to potential buyers in the past and most didn’t even know this highend enclave existed this close to downtown Monterey!
If your home is struggling to catch the eye of a buyer, it could be for an entirely valid reason. Maybe you're stuck in a sluggish market or have the poshest place on the block (always a tough sell). But there's another possibility, too—your home could be sitting on the market because of a rookie selling mistake. All of us can make 'em, even those of us who actually have a few home sales under our belts.
The good news? These basic slip-ups can be easily corrected or avoided. To help you out, we spoke to real estate agents to identify some of the most common mistakes people make in trying to sell their home. Sidestep these flubs to avoid sabotaging your own sale.
Rookie mistake No. 1: Overpricing your home
All sellers want to get top dollar for their house. Unfortunately, says Julie McDonough, a real estate agent in Southern California, “many people overestimate the value of their home." For example, she says, "if a neighbor sells their house for 3400,000, you might automatically assume that your house is worth at /easf that much money, but that's not necessarily the case."
“Price is typically the reason why a house doesn't sell," says Irvine, CA, real estate agent Benny Kang. And the last thing you want to do is list too high right from the start, because it could cause your house to sit on the market-which might require you to make a serious price reduction in order to sell it.
"If a home is on the market for more than four weeks, prospective buyers are going to assume that there is something wrong with it," says Kang.
Your best approach: Listen to your agent’s listing price recommendation, and try not to get too emotional if your agent's suggestion isn't as high as you'd hoped.
Rookie mistake No. 2: Not budging on price
Even if the price is right, you might need to be flexible—especially if you're in a buyer’s market. So, if you receive an offer that's below list price, you should at least consider making a counteroffer. After all, receiving $5,000 or 310,000 less for your house than what you wanted is a small concession in the long term.
Rookie mistake No. 3: Doing a lousy job of cleaning
Let's make this clear: Your home needs to be spotless. That might mean hiring a professional cleaner to do a deep and thorough cleaning of the entire place. You might want to consider renting a storage locker to make the process of cleaning out the garage, closets, and attic less onerous. But it will likely be worth it, because clutter distract buyers in a big way.
Bonus: A clean house will also enable you to take great photographs for your listing (see our next point).
Rookie mistake No. 4: Using crummy photographs
Unless you're an artist with the camera, you'll want to hire a professional photographer to take pictures of the house, because nearly half of home buyers start their search online, a recent survey by the National Association of Realtors® found.
“You can write a beautiful description, but people aren't initially focusing on the description," says Philadelphia real estate agent Patrick Conway. "They're looking at the pictures."
A photographer will cost between 3150 and 3400-a good investment.
Rookie mistake No. 5: Leaving religious or political belongings in plain sight
“You never know what type of buyer is going to look at your house,” says McDonough, so put away all personal belongings—specifically, religious or political items, which can be awfully polarizing. “You don't want anything that's going to distract buyers."
Rookie mistake No. 6: Lurking around at your own open house
This is a huge mistake for several reasons.
"If the buyer knows that the seller is there, they might feel uncomfortable asking the listing agent honest questions about the home,” says Kang. Buyers might also feel like they're intruding if you're present, which is kind of crazy.
“People like to open closet doors and look closely at the home without someone hovering over their shoulder," says Conway.
Rookie mistake No. 7: Making it difficult for agents to show your home
When selling your house, "be prepared for little privacy," says Kang. Translation: You'll need to be flexible when buyers ask to see your home on short notice. To make it easy for buyer's agents to show the property while you're away (see No. 6), let your agent install a lockbox with keys to the house, advises Conway.
Rookie mistake No. 8: Leaving pets at home during showings
Some people are simply scared of pets, (yes, even your cute little pug), or they might have allergies that will make them want to steer clear. So don’t just crate your dog or cat during showings; instead, take them with you or drop them off with a neighbor while buyers are viewing the house. And because pets, like humans, tend to accumulate lots of stuff—leashes, collars, toys, water bowls, and the like-make sure you stow their paraphernalia in a cupboard or closet. And do a quick vacuum of pet hair before you go!

Old Del Monte Area Luxury Home for Sale in Monterey, CA - Just Listed
At the end of a 250’ private drive is a gated contemporary oasis with a special luxury home for sale in the Old Del Monte neighborhood of Monterey, CA. Meticulously remodeled over a three-year period, this designer home is surrounded by Monterey pine and oak trees, making you feel as if you are living miles away from civilization. The good news is you are just a few minutes from downtown Monterey, the beach, restaurants and all the other amenities Monterey offers.
Once behind the gate of this Old Del Monte neighborhood Monterey home, you feel as though you just entered your own private retreat. The grounds are meticulously kept and there is a Zen-like feel to the property pulling you towards the front door. Once inside, it is obvious this mid-century modern style home wasn’t designed as a spec’ house. 12 Abinante Way started out as local architect Russell Haisley’s home that he designed and built for himself. There are several unique features to the house including the use of clerestory windows. This design allows the interior to be bathed with natural light that creates passive radiant heat which is stored in the polished concrete floors in the sunken living room. At night, the naturally heated concrete will help keep the house heated without the use of gas or electricity. These windows along with the other expertly sited windows offer a unique view of the Monterey pine trees above, around and in the canyon below.
The mostly single level floor plan has great flow and excellent livability. With the living space in the middle, the master retreat on one end and the other three bedrooms and a family room on the other end, everyone has their own private places to escape and hang out. In addition, there is an atrium, a den, a breakfast nook, a dining room, a large living room, several patios, a good-sized deck and an office that is part of the master suite, allowing plenty of room to snuggle up and read a book, do homework or just stare out into the beautiful forest.
The master retreat is light and bright with tons of windows and very clean lines. There is an office or what could be a sitting room with a private deck, a wet bar with a frig, sink and dishwasher that serves as a buffer between the main house and the actual bedroom and bath. The master bath, like the rest of the home has incredibly clean lines with modern cabinets, beautiful countertops, a fabulous walk in shower and a towel warmer. The views out into the Monterey pine forest in this part of the Old Del Monte neighborhood are tranquil and relaxing.
The materials used throughout the house are top notch. The floors in the kitchen, family room, office as well as the bedrooms and halls are imported European wood floors. The sunken living room is custom polished and stained concrete and the foyer floors are the original 1960’s tile that have been cleaned and restored. Just about every window in the house has been replaced with a much more energy efficient version of what came out. The electrical panels have been upgraded, LED lighting has been installed along with numerous outdoor motion lights. The entire home was rewired for wireless and internet plus cable/dish.
You will love the open kitchen in this home! It has been fully remodeled with new plumbing, all new name brand stainless steel appliances, new cabinets with soft close sliders, Ceaserstone counter tops, a Jado faucet and a dishwasher. The breakfast nook was recently expanded with great lines, a soaring ceiling and clerestory windows to really finish off the kitchen and allow plenty of natural light and the beauty of outside to flow inside.
Finishing off the main house, there is a remodeled laundry room with granite counter tops and a host of cabinets. In addition to the two-car garage, there is room for 2 more cars off the family room.
12 Abinante Way comes with a whole host of extras. Please contact Mark Bruno or Jeff Davi for a complete list of what comes with the house.

If you are looking for a rental, this property is just a 5 minute walk from the DLI.
The southwest part of Monterey or New Monterey as it called materialized as a neighborhood in the 1920’s through the 1940’s as housing was needed for workers involved in the enormous sardine cannery business of the time. Most of the homes on the hill above Cannery Row were smaller cottages and were modest places younger people and the large cannery workforce could live and call home.
Cannery Row was made into the most famous street in America by John Steinbeck's 1945 book "Cannery Row" that was written about the unique Monterey fish packing plants, bordellos and flophouses. Steinbeck was a local that grew up in Salinas, CA, went to college at Stanford and lived in Pacific Grove right next to Cannery Row.
In 1946, the US Military moved the Defense Language Institute (DLI), then called the Military Intelligence Service Language School (MISLS) to the Monterey Presidio which borders New Monterey on its south side. This brought a significant number of instructors and staff members who ultimately would have impact on the areas housing and still does today, with language instructors making up a significant percentage of today’s home buyers in the area.
New Monterey is most known for the lifestyle it offers its residents. This area is close to all of the things that make the Monterey Peninsula the special place it is. Obviously, Cannery Row is a great attraction today with great restaurants, sightseeing, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and fun shopping, no wonder it is the biggest tourist attraction in Monterey County. Scenic Pacific Grove with it’s beautiful rocky shoreline, quaint downtown and American hometown feel is on the border of New Monterey. Homes in New Monterey are a bit more affordable than Pacific Grove, making New Monterey popular with some second home buyers.
New Monterey is known for having some of the best views of Monterey Bay. It is very common to find a Monterey Bay View home or condo in New Monterey on the hill with outstanding views of the bay.

The bordering city of Pacific Grove has several options for groceries and all are within a 5 minute car ride along with just about anything else you could possibly need including some of the best restaurants on the Monterey peninsula.
If you are a dog lover, Rip Van Winkle Open Space Park is located near the Country Club Gate to get into Pebble Beach and has become a make shift puppy park where dog owners gather daily and allow their well-behaved pooches to run freely with other four legged fury animals. Also located in this neighborhood is the Inn at Spanish Bay, which is an amazing resort with a fabulous links style golf course, several top notch restaurants, amazing outdoor spaces with fire pits, a great wine list and even a bagpiper who serenades the nightly setting of the sun...A great way to end any day.

Incredible Kitchen, Family Room and Bar
Most people nowadays spend the majority of their time in the kitchen and family rooms of their home and 3376 Cienega Road has an amazing kitchen with an attached family room and large bar to die for! Talk about a chef’s kitchen…There is a huge Viking gas range with side by side double ovens and a whole host of features on top! It has a large high volume exhaust fan and a beautiful tile backsplash with a mural featuring a vineyard. The kitchen cabinets are gorgeous and plentiful so storage will not be an issue. In addition, there is a walk-in pantry just off the kitchen and an amazing center island with seating for 6 to 8 people, a large refrigerator, built in microwave and an incredible amount of granite countertop space. Holidays here will be a blast!
The kitchen table has been custom built to match the rest of the kitchen and family room, so of course it has the same granite on top as the countertops!
The family room is comfy and cozy with a large built in cabinet that houses the flat screen and any other high tech gadgets you need to help run your entertainment system. There are two very large exposed trusses over-head and a floor to ceiling stone covered gas fireplace.
Tucked between the family room and the kitchen is a large wet bar with room for bar stools around it that will obviously be the center of any large party thrown in this home. It features a wood slat front with granite counter tops and high quality cabinets all tying together with the rest of this beautiful home.
The Master Retreat
The master retreat occupies the back corner of the home and is a private oasis. Crown molding adorn the tops of the 10’ walls and a beautiful tray ceiling lined with accent lighting and even more crown molding! There is a gas fireplace as well as built in cabinets with an entertainment center. This private retreat has its own access to the pool and spa through a large sliding glass door, which allows an abundance of natural light to bathe the room during the day.
Let us not forget the master bathroom…As you would expect, it is incredibly well done and features a romantic peninsula jetted soaking tub for two, a large walk in shower, his and her vanities, a makeup counter as well as a walk-in closet.
I can go on and on about this luxury Hollister home…and I will. There are 4 more bedrooms. Three are on the same side of the house as the master and share bath. The 4th is the guest suite and is located on the other side of the house and includes its own bathroom with a walk-in shower.

The garage is amazing!!! It is roughly 1995 square feet and can accommodate 6 cars plus a large motorhome.

Currently one of the garages is being used as a workout room with air conditioning.
The Pool, Spa and 5 Acres of Land
As great as this luxury home is on the inside, the outside might be my favorite part. The back of the home is framed by an oak tree spotted ridge that offers protection from the wind as well as privacy from your neighbors over the hill. There is a beautiful pool along with a spa tucked down at its base and surrounded by tons of decking making the backyard a beautiful extension of the indoor space. The landscaping is fairly lush, especially in the front of the house considering we are in our 4th year of drought. The views from the yard are tremendous, with vistas of the distant mountain peaks and the twinkle of lights from the valley at night.
