”Monterey's Forest Preserve”
~ Provides Nature's wooded privacy and beauty for this 8/10's (+-) acre lot with a 1948 home updated in the 60's. The main house includes a total of 1,500 square feet with 2 Bedrooms and 1.5 Baths with hardwood floors and a large brick fireplace in the Living room. Also a Family room kitchen combination with a wall of windows open to a large private patio and the forest. There is also an attached laundry and storage area ( included in the square footage). The main house is currently rented for $1,300 per month and is on a month to month basis.
~ The property also includes an 80 square foot detached Art Studio and a 316 square foot Cottage with a kitchenett, sink and bathroom which is currently rented for $650 per month and is on a month to month basis, yet is a "non-conforming" use and was not considered in establishing the value. The property is being sold strickly "As Is" in this regard. This building was originally built as a Shop and a bathroom was added sometime we believe in the 60's. There could be a possiblity that it could be legalized in the future as a guest house or granny unit, but currently the Monterey R-1 zoning has provisions for a "Guest House" without cooking facsilities, but not a second residential unit. However California State guidelines are urging cities to change this to ease affordable housing shortages and serve the tremendous need for secondary housing for disabled children or aging parents and so on. However, this sale is to be "As Is".
~ The property may be previewed with your Realtor or the Listing Broker by appointment only on Wednesdays or Saturday between 10:00 am and 12:00 noon. Caution do not go on the property without an appointment--there are dogs.
