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!
