The feeling is one of inside and outside living that is graceful and easy. The kitchen, a dining area, and a family room, are under vaulted ceilings and join the outside back patio and the front deck. You sit encompassed by high ceilings and take short steps to experience the open sky. The two upstairs bedrooms bracket the bathroom and each has garden views out its windows. This home is firmly built into the hillside, affording the natural light and the long views. The gardens have been lovingly and thoughtfully planted with a combination of native plantings and the gardener/owners’s favorites, with various retaining wall features built to the top of the hill. The squirrels jump from spot to spot putting on a daily show, worth a visit to see. Walk the Encino and Bonita Loop for a taste of the rural in a neighborhood that is adjacent to excellent shopping, restaurants and the commute. State parks, local parks, and the ocean and its wide beaches are just minutes away.

What I like most about this house:

The wood floors and ceilings give this home the fell of a mountain cabin. Vaulted ceilings make it feel farm more spacious.

Quintessential Beach House … one minute walk to the ocean in best Pleasure Point location. Stroll down the street to make the beach your back yard and watch the waves at sunset. Half a dozen of the best breaks in Santa Cruz – right here! Discover the magic of living in Pleasure Point … full of great restaurants, coffee houses, breweries, & shopping, plus next door to Capitola Village. Gorgeous house with fantastic interior! Modern craftsman with mix of loft architecture .. metro chic tiny house. Potential to add a second story and perhaps gain a peek of the ocean.

What I like most about this house:

Though this studio home is tiny by most standards, it has a bright, airy feeling than makes it feel larger on the inside. The possibilities to expand with a second floor rather than the sleeping loft give it great equity expansion capacity . Proximity to Cliff Drive and beach access make it ideal for beach combers or, if you can secure a vacation rental permit, an ideal rental.

I would like a private showing of homes like these
