The Real Estate Bargain of the Year!! Awesome Ocean Views for Under a Million!

View from 40 Skyline Crest, Monterey CA

40 Skyline Crest, offered at $965,000

Open House, Sunday October 22nd 1:00 – 4:00pm

It is always a joy as a realtor to have a truly wonderful property to represent to the real estate market place.  I’m grateful to currently have many such listings – each unique and amazing in their own way – each seeking a different type of buyer.

But what would be MY dream house as a buyer?  I love a water view, and not just standing on a chair peeking out my window view, but a knock- down full-out ocean view.  I want to sit down at my dining room table in the morning and look at the ocean so I remember what an incredible place I live in.

I want to sit in the same dining room in the early evening and watch as dusk sets in and the sky turns into reds, oranges, and pinks as only Mother Nature can create.

I even want to prepare dinner looking at this same view!

And, yes, I want to curl up in my living room with a good book and revel in my ocean view . . .

. . .  and enjoy a roaring fire at the same time.  I don’t want much do I!

I know all of this seems impossible on the Monterey Peninsula unless one spends millions, but you’re wrong. For a short time only (at least that’s how I would book it) a striking residence is available that would answer all of my dreams – perhaps even yours!!

Private entry – with a view, of course.

In addition,  it is spacious with 2720 SF including 5 bedrooms, three baths with a huge 5th bedroom boasting built-in bookcases which would be a great family room.  Two-car garage with additional off-street parking.  Great location.  Quiet, private, but easy to get anywhere on the Monterey Peninsula in a short drive.  If you share some of my visions of what your Dream House looks like, come by the Open House or view the Virtual Tour and call me with any questions.  Remember, run, don’t walk.

See you at 40 Skyline Crest, Monterey CA

Sunday, 10/22 1:00 – 4:00pm

If your dream house is of another vision, perhaps one of my other listings will work for you.  Call me with questions.

Panoramic Ocean Views for under a million ~ Are you kidding me?

Ocean view from 40 Skyline Crest

Living on the Monterey Peninsula is a life long dream of mine come true.  And to be a realtor here in this beautiful place is pretty darn special.  In my 18 years here on the Peninsula you can imagine how many times I’ve heard from a buyer, “I want a home with an ocean view”.  Yes, everyone wants an ocean view and I’m afraid that usually comes with quite a pretty price tag – as in the view at the very top of the page.  This is a view of the Pebble Beach coastline from a home that sold a year or so ago for millions of dollars.

Oh, you’d like the one with an ocean view under a million?  Ok, I can help you with that.  40 Skyline Crest is a very special residence and won’t last on the market long.  From the living room, dining room, and kitchen plus other rooms, you can view this engaging vista and even enjoy true sunset dinners in your very own dining room gazing at this!

“HAVANA NIGHTS”

WOMEN’S COUNCIL OF REALTORS ANNUAL FUNDRAISER

 To put on a major event of this kind is an enormous task with many volunteers putting in an extraordinary amount of time, so first I must  thank and applaud all the wonderful women and men who have worked so hard to make this a successful event.  Everyone had their particular “job” and pitched in “wherever” whenever necessary.  My job was to co-chair the models – along with Karen Calley –  which included rounding up a group of models from our membership, giving direction about the fashion show, sending them on to the stores for fittings, and replacing & switching when models dropped out or there was a need to switch a store.  In all we have a fabulous group of models this year!  Can’t wait to see them walk down the runway and I will be up there with them!

My Secret Life as a Model ~ Fashion Show at Inn at Spanish Bay, Pebble Beach, CA

My Secret Life as a Model

Susan Clark modeling Ericka Engelman in the 2015 WCR Fashion Show

I’ve mostly spent my life as a Stewardess (Pam Am), as a teacher (SFUSD), and as a realtor both in  San Francisco and Carmel (Alain Pinel Realtors).  BUT,  I always had this secret desire to model so when I was in my 20’s I gave it a whirl.  I went to a modeling school in San Francisco and some how wound up teaching “Walks and Turns” at the same modeling school on Saturdays – all while teaching 5th grade.  It was my secret life!  I did do some live fashion shows, but alas, it was obvious this could not be a part-time gig.  And I was certainly not emaciated enough to do print and liked a steady job – plus I loved teaching.  I decided it was not my calling, but it had been fun!  To this day, I love fashion!  Some days you can’t tell by the way I dress, but issues of  Vogue, Elle, and Bazaar are always stacked up on my coffee table.
