Monterey Hills is a private enclave of beautiful homes atop a picturesque landform. The topography is a chain of valleys and hills that overlook Grand Traverse Bay. The valleys create a natural buffer. Along the rise the landscape provides a glorious bay view. Maple and Oak trees frame the building site which is fairly level to the roadâ€”no steep driveway required like some. Covenants are in place to ensure architectural harmony and to protect property values. A well-run association maintains the roads and common areas year--round with homeowner input. The annual fee is $500 and due in January each year. Available utilities include underground electric, natural gas, cable TV and internet. The Monterey Hills location is ideal, less than 12 minutes to Traverse City, 6 minutes to Suttons Bay and 3 minutes to Mawby Vineyards & Winery.
