This classy Spanish-style Bungalow was moved up the hill from Ocean St to a more suitably distinguished neighborhood in the 30s. She's clearly at ease here, and you will be too!  She enjoys expansive views of our city's lights & the distant Monterey Bay, sunny & tidy grounds, fruit trees, garden beds, long-time neighbors and gated privacy. A detached 1.5 car garage and nimble (but not rentable) 2nd story studio-space provide harmonious companionship. Because of her proximity to town, and to the innovative campuses over the Hill, she doesn't feel isolated or distant. Over the years, her inhabitants have reverentially tended & preserved her beautiful wood floors, coved ceilings, picture rails and classic moldings. And their lavish embellishments and newfangled fixtures (like appliances, cabinets, counters, wiring, fireplace, furnace, foundation bolts, roofing, windows and more) will be her lease on many graceful and happy decades to come. You should meet her!  Let me set that up : )
