Welcome to Bay Ridge
Where is Bay Ridge?
Saddle Road and Bay Ridge are located off of HWY 68 just 10 minutes from downtown Monterey and the Monterey Bay. Access to all Monterey Peninsula cities is easy from the scenic HWY 68 Corridor with Carmel, Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach just a few more minutes away. Even closer is Laguna Seca Raceway, Pasadera Country Club and the Monterey Airport. This 10 minute drive can make all of the difference when it comes to Monterey area weather. Residents of the Bay Ridge neighborhood can expect warmer days with more sunshine and a lot less foggy weather. If you are looking to escape the coastal fog, Boots Road and the Bay Ridge area is a great place to start your search.
Bay Ridge Real Estate
Bay Ridge was established in 1985 on top of the southern hills above Scenic HWY 68, just 5 miles outside of Monterey, CA. There is approximately 400 acres of land inside the gates of Bay Ridge, including 113 residential lots that range in size from 1.7 acres to 15 acres. The terrain is hilly as you would expect for the coastal ranges of California and at an average of 1100 feet above sea level, the views can be quite amazing! There are breathtaking views of the Monterey Bay as it wraps around to Santa Cruz. The twinkling lights of Salinas are also visible along with the Salinas Valley, Mount Toro and the Santa Lucia Mountains. There are also golf course view homes, with several golf courses in the valleys below.
Bay Ridge was once touted as the Pebble Beach in the sun. The views are smashing and the weather is far superior to that of the coastal areas. Many thought Bay Ridge would instantly take off as one of the favorite places on the Monterey Peninsula for people to live. As such, some very spectacular homes have been built in Bay Ridge over the years. Although it never quite reached Pebble Beach status, many locals prefer living here to the peninsula based on the weather and lifestyle it offers.
