This small New England town setting charms visitors and residents alike. Pescadero's roots reach all the way back to the pioneer Yankees who made their way west to call the coastal community home. Though it is no longer the main route along the coast, Stage Road still runs through the center of town. At sunset, if you listen hard, you can almost hear the distant rumblings of the stagecoach making its way toward town. Even today, the stories surface of those long ago visitors who came to visit Pebble Beach and holiday in the grand resort hotels of Pescadero.
The old frame houses and steepled churches reflect the town's pioneer roots. Built in 1867, the Pescadero Community Church is not only a California Registered Landmark, but the oldest church in San Mateo County.
Pescadero homes for sale come in many varieties.
For a small town, you may be surprised to find Pescadero homes for sale in many different kinds of settings and styles, including neighborhood homes, cabins, ranches, and oceanfront, though most of the homes feature more rural neighborhood settings.
Pescadero homes usually fall into 3 categories:
- "In Town"
- Small developments (created nearly 100 years ago for summer homes)
- Ranches or large-acre parcels
Since Pescadero is a community that has been built a home or two at a time over the past 100-plus years, there are no homes for sale in uniform-neighborhood developments. There are homes that come with acreage, and even this land varies from usable for growing crops or gardens, and/or keeping livestock, to land that's steeper, less usable land, but creates peace and privacy for it's owner.
There are homes for sale that sit in the modest 'In-Town' neighborhood. The luxury Pescadero homes range from exclusive homes with acreage to those on the oceanfront.
While the prices go up for oceanfront, ocean access, and ocean views, you can still find Pescadero homes in spectacular settings. While most Pescadero homes for sale are within 1 hour of San Francisco and the Peninsula, they offer a range of locations. The homes can be located "close in," to downtown, the post office, and school, or can be remotely located away from the central activities and feature privacy and quiet settings. Pescadero homes come in all states of repair: from turn-key condition, ready to move into, or those that just need cosmetic care such as paint and carpet, to those that need new kitchen, baths, or windows, or those that require complete or major structural remodeling and repair. Pescadero homes offer something for everyone in price ranges from the $300,000s to over $10,000,000.00.
