Beach Tract/Fairway Homes
The coveted neighborhood of Beach Tract/Fairway Homes is located at the northernmost point of Pacific Grove and encompasses prime oceanfront real estate along Pacific Grove Marine Gardens Park and Lovers Point. This desirable coastal enclave of homes is bordered by Ocean View Boulevard along the coastline to the North, Lighthouse and Bayview Avenues to the South, Asilomar Avenue to the West and Lovers Point to the East. Homes along Asilomar Avenue have western views of the Pacific Grove Golf Course. Fairway Homes are primarily ranch style homes situated along the golf course while homes closer to the shore can be quite dramatic in architecture and design from Spanish Style to contemporary to sophisticated modern and offering commanding views. The shoreline is picturesque and romantic with rocky shores, windswept cypress trees, cobalt blue waters and bursts of pink flowering plants that trail over the jagged rocks, and were planted to attract the migrating monarch butterflies the town welcomes each year. The neighborhood is excellent for enjoying the beauty of the coast, endless recreation opportunities and wonderful walkability to scenic spots, golfing and downtown shopping and dining along charming Lighthouse Avenue.
The neighborhood is situated along the coastline of the Pacific Grove Marine Gardens Park which is one of 4 marine protected areas on the Monterey Peninsula, and is located between Asilomar State Marine Reserve and Lovers Point State Marine Reserve. A natural treasure, this stretch of coastline provides a sanctuary for a diverse variety of marine life including otters who seek shelter in the dense kelp beds. In fact if you hear a knocking sound you will often find an otter diligently cracking a crab with a rock as he reposes on his back, amusingly unaffected by the waves that roll underway. The ever changing bay views will capture your imagination with passing ships and sailboats, active marine life, dazzling sunsets and cozy foggy mornings that give way to dazzling blue skies and water.
