The Pacific Grove Beach Tract neighborhood started to take form in the late 1920s after most of the Old Retreat area was developed. Del Monte Property Company owner S. F. B. Morse thought it would be easier to sell the neighborhood if it had a golf course built right through the middle of it. H. Chandler Egan who worked closely with the now famous golf course Architect Alister Mackenzie on the redesign of Pebble Beach Golf Links was chosen to design and oversee the construction of the then 9-hole Pacific Grove Golf Course. The course opened in 1932 as the Great Depression took hold of the Nation. It would take 30 years before the second 9 holes, the ocean side 9, would be constructed along the Pacific Grove coastline.
The majority of the Pacific Grove Beach Tract real estate was built in the 1950s and 1960s. There are also many newer construction homes as well as major remodels in this area of Pacific Grove. Real estate here is very eclectic like most of Pacific Grove and it is not uncommon to see a relatively new 3000 square foot home sitting next to a 1950’s mid-century modern home with a flat tar and gravel roof! This is part of the areas charm. As a matter of fact, Pacific Grove considers any home that is over 50 years old to potentially be a historical home.
The Beach Tract is a big draw for people looking for Pacific Grove real estate with front line ocean views, and the views are nothing less than gorgeous! Ocean View Blvd. is full of front line ocean view homes making this a popular place for home buyers looking for Monterey Bay views. Even the side streets near Ocean View Blvd. offer exceptional bay and ocean views. Expect to pay for this prime real estate as houses for sale here on Ocean View can get pricey.
