Monterey – Capital of California
Monterey was the first capital of California and is rich in cultural history. Serving as the central hub of the Monterey Peninsula, it is home to Monterey International Airport, The Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Monterey County Fairgrounds, Monterey’s Fisherman’s Wharf, the world famous Monterey's Cannery Row and numerous local restaurants, hotels and shops.
Monterey luxury real estate is abundant in the area, however it isn’t always easy to find. There are unique Monterey neighborhoods with luxury homes that are known to locals but often overlooked by home buyers who are new to the area. If you want to live right on the beach, there are few options in the city of Monterey. For a truly waterfront Monterey home, you would have to live on a two block section in the Del Monte Beach Area or in a waterfront condo. For a great Monterey bay view home, Skyline Forest offers a unique vantage point looking down Monterey’s Del Monte Beach with the city lights twinkling at night. You can also look at the Bayridge Area in the Hwy 68 Corridor. This part of Monterey has sweeping views of Monterey Bay from Cannery Row all the way around to Santa Cruz and offers the home buyer a larger home than what you normally find in town.
Monterra Ranch is a great gated development of larger estate homes on nice large lots that offers the home owner privacy and peace of mind. There are homes for sale in Monterra Ranch as well as Monterra Ranch building sites (lots) for sale so that you can build your own Monterra Ranch dream home.
The other Monterey luxury real estate area worth mentioning is the hidden gem of a neighborhood known as the Alta Mesa Area which is close to downtown Monterey. Although there is no great ocean or bay views to speak of, this part of Monterey features nicer homes on larger lots and is highly sought after by locals and second home owners alike.
For a Monterey luxury golf course home, there are a few options in the city. Pasadera Country Club offers newer homes and condos beautifully constructed on a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course carved right into the side of the valley. Pasadera offers condos for sale (villas and ultra luxurious super villas) as well as semi-custom homes and fully custom luxury homes in the development. Pasadera is located about 10 minutes from downtown Monterey.
Right next to Pasadera Country Club is Laguna Seca Golf Course located off York Road. There are many nice custom homes that were built from the 1970's through the present in this sunbelt location, many of which were built with views of Laguna Seca Golf Course. Homes here are typically a bit more affordable than Pasadera.
If Pasadera and Laguna Seca is not right for you and you are looking for a neighborhood a little closer to downtown Monterey, a golf course home near Old Del Monte Golf Course could be the ticket. This is an older established Monterey neighborhood built around the oldest continually operating golf course in the United States west of the Mississippi! Many of the mid century ranch homes built near Old Del Monte have been remodeled and updated and are surrounded by old growth oak and pine trees. Homes on the golf course rarely come on the market and when they do, they normally sell quickly!
