Walk to Just About Anything You Need
Oak Grove is a great neighborhood just across Del Monte Avenue from Del Monte Beach and only a 15 minute walk to downtown Monterey shopping and restaurants, not to mention Monterey’s Tuesday Farmer’s Market, the biggest in the area. The Naval Postgraduate School borders the Oak Grove neighborhood to the east and Monterey Peninsula College is just across Fremont Street to the south, making this an excellent area to live if you are a student at either school. The Monterey Bay Coastal Trail runs along the beach and is easy to access from this neighborhood. You can walk, run, roller blade or bike all the way to Pacific Grove in one direction and Marina in the other.
Monterey’s Oak Grove neighborhood is full of an eclectic mixture of homes and people. You will find early 1900’s Victorian homes, craftsman bungalows as well as other small cottages mixed together with newer construction, various remodeled homes, duplexes and even apartments and a few condos like this one. It reminds many people of a typical beach community that you might find anywhere along the California coast these days and with Del Monte Beach just a few blocks away, it shouldn’t be a surprise. It also shouldn’t be a surprise the neighborhood is occupied by renters as well as second home owners and primary home owners, all who like the lifestyle associated with living this close to the water and the two schools, NPS and MPC. The flat terrain makes it especially nice as walking, running and bicycling just about anywhere is easier from here than in other parts of Monterey.
