I bet I have your attention now…Keep reading.
Just a few blocks from downtown shopping and eating and a few blocks from Cannery Row and the Waterfront, who wouldn’t want this 2 bedroom, 1 bath Post Victorian cottage located on a quiet street in Pacific Grove! With a humble but handsome curb appeal, this Pacific Grove cottage has everything you need including a double lot, a one car garage and an Ocean view.
Behind a white picket fence, a meandering stone walkway leads you through a nicely landscaped front yard to a unique front door with 4 vertical top to bottom window panes, allowing light and warmth to freely flow in. The entry door is flanked on either side by two large multi paned windows adding to the charm of the home and the interior light.
Once inside, the new owner will be greeted to high vaulted ceilings in the cozy living room with recessed lighting above, fresh carpet below and new paint on all the walls. At 738 square feet over all for the cottage, the living room is ample in size and leads to a large newer kitchen and dining room. The ceilings are vaulted in the kitchen as well and like the living room, receives tons of natural light. There are built in appliances, a gas range and an abundance of cabinet space considering the size of this cottage. The laundry is located at the end of the kitchen opposite the back door.
There is a great deck in back of the house which features great views of the Monterey Bay and Pacific Ocean.
There are two bedrooms, one a bit larger than the other and a single bathroom between them off the hall. As is the theme for this cozy cottage, both bedrooms offer vaulted ceilings and recessed lighting.
The bathroom has a tile shower, tile floors and countertops and although compact, has everything you need.
218 3rd St. is inside what would be considered Pacific Grove's Old Retreat neighborhood. The Old Retreat is a reference to the area in Pacific grove which was home to the old Methodist summer retreat which took place in Pacific Grove every year during this towns early days of development. The Old Retreat was a very specific area of town located below Pine from New Monterey's border to around Congress Avenue, although today the general area around downtown is loosely referred to as the Old Retreat.
People love the Old Retreat area of Pacific Grove and Old Retreat real estate because of the uniquely Pacific Grove lifestyle it offers. The Old Retreat, as you will read below, was made of tent structures in the early days so the lots are very small (30' x 60' to be exact) and don't allow for very large homes. The location is perfect as you can easily walk to the water, Lovers Point and downtown Pacific Grove. And although we are on rocky terrain, the terrain is relatively flat when compared with other seaside communities, making it an ideal place to walk. With all of that said, Pacific Grove's Old Retreat real estate is among the most desirable in the city.
