Skyline Forest/Skyline Ridge
The neighborhood of Skyline Forest/Skyline Ridge is situated east of Hwy 68 in a forested section of Monterey where the hilltop elevation allows for sweeping views of the Monterey Bay. The neighborhood is in very close proximity to Pebble Beach with portions of the neighborhood actually on 17 Mile Drive. Nestled in the hills, these homes enjoy a bird’s eye view of Monterey city lights and the sapphire bay, in a peaceful and serene setting. Just past the fog’s reach days are usually sunnier here than at the coast just miles away. It is a fantastic neighborhood for quick access to the Highway into Carmel and just a short drive to Pacific Grove for shopping and everyday conveniences. Residents also enjoy quick access to downtown Monterey including the business district and the Wharf. The neighborhood is close to schools and is part of the Monterey Unified School District. Stevenson School, a private school with an excellent academic reputation is also just 5 miles away in beautiful Pebble Beach. With tree lined streets and spacious homes on quiet cul-de- sacs, the neighborhood is highly sought after. A number of condominiums are located here as well which boast the same bay views as the single family homes but with a smaller footprint. For recreation in your own backyard you will have three great parks nearby, Quarry Park, Via Paraiso Park and Veterans Park. Veterans Park is particularly popular for picnicking and offers the only allowable campsites in Monterey. The 81 acre Huckleberry Hill Nature Preserve is nearby as well which is a hidden jewel for hikers in the know.
