At this house, you’re on top of the world. From the top floor, you are met with two incredible views: to the west, drink in vistas of the Monterey Bay. To the east, take in the green views of the protected canyon that flanks your quarter-acre lot. Your private orchard of fruit trees covers the hillside, ready to harvest & give to friends & neighbors. Pair those Monterey Bay views with a glass of champagne & soak in the hot tub on your massive deck. From the deck, walk into your master bedroom, which is the only room on the top floor of the house.

Thank you for your kind words. We loved working with you!

“I think it is very telling about a Realtor’s character when he says the only thing that marred his Honeymoon was that I didn’t get my bid accepted on a house while he was away. Ben, not only has knowledge of the area but can look at a house and see the building's drawbacks and hidden issues that need addressing. He is a delight to work with and has the patience and humor that makes looking for the ‘perfect’ place a fun experience.”
