                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: I have lived in Santa Cruz for over 20 years and have loved every minute of it. Coming from the Central Valley, I enjoy the escape from the heat, extreme cold and air quality. The weather is conducive to anything. I am a horseman and love to ride on the beach and in the Santa Cruz mountains.

                      Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
                      I have always loved the Santa Cruz area since it combines the ocean and the mountain redwoods. The beaches are fantastic and the weather, supreme. There is so much to do with free weekly concerts at the Boardwalk and Capitola Beach. There is a Begonia Festival, Jazz concerts and shopping, just to name a few activities.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The home can be divided into two units for privacy or separate rentals. The upper and lower story both each have a kitchen, family room and two entrances. In addition there are two bedrooms, three baths upstairs, and three bedrooms, two bath downstairs. Thus making it perfect for two families who want to share in the expense yet maintain their privacy, or a family who look to have their kids with their own total space. The new Harry Potter Bedroom on the 3rd level is a magnet for kids. TV, Dvd player, two twin beds, fold out bed, and 2 loveseats. Perfect for the munchkins own space!! This home is within walking distance to six restaurants.
