How about being sandwiched between California redwood forests to the east and California beaches to the west?
It's "wonderful," says Bob McCahon, lifelong resident and broker associate with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, in Half Moon Bay.
And the town "has become a destination" in recent years. As a result, the population "swells up on the weekends," especially in spring, summer and fall.
But aside from being catnip for beachcombers and forest hikers, it's also a working farm town, with a town center, grocery stores, a taqueria and a tavern.
"It's a special town," says McCahon.
Built in 1896, this former farmhouse on almost half an acre was one of the first homes on the street, says McCahon.
The 800-square-foot home has an open floor plan with wood laminate floors, three bedrooms and one bath, he says. Plus it has a garden and a detached one-car garage.
