Moss Beach Real Estate
Moss Beach is a coastal census-designated place in San Mateo County, California, with a year 2010 census population of 3,103. Located in Moss Beach are the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, a marine sanctuary; the Half Moon Bay Airport, the historic Moss Beach Distillery; and the Seal Cove Inn, a destination lodging property.
Temperatures are mild throughout the year. Due to the marine air currents off of the Pacific Ocean, Moss Beach experiences above average fog levels, but also superior ambient air quality. Situated along the coast of Moss Beach is the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, a California designated area of Special Biological Significance. The Reserve boasts a scenic bluff top trail through ancient cypress groves overlooking the Pacific Ocean, interesting tide pools and a variety of significant marine animals and birds.
The Coastside is proud of its agriculture and floriculture and roadside stands sell locally grown fruits and vegetables. Fresh seafood is available in local restaurants or for buying right off the boats in Pillar Point Harbor, to take home and prepare yourself. Residents of the Coastside live a lifestyle that many think no longer exists in California. Neighbors care about each other, schools are important, and there is a sense of real community.
The average sales price of Single Family Homes in Moss Beach in 2016 was $1,135,400.
