What I love about the home
This home is older construction that has stood the test of time and use for over 125 years. Like many of the homes on Spruce Street in Monterey, this property has its place in local history as the home of one the earliest know doctors in the town. The small building located beside the home was his office and was constructed with the same craftsmanship as the house. Still in good condition this building could be used as a a hobby shop, workshop or space for any kind of home to all your craft ideas. An additional town lot also conveys with property.
