Santa Cruz house description

Beautifully remolded in 2011, this spacious 3,100 sq ft ocean-view home is located at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac in North Santa Cruz Harbor . Tropical furnishings and oceanic décor compliment this dramatic 3,000 square foot, 4 bedroom, 2 bath home that is truly one-of-a kind!

SUMMER ONLY - Enjoy the Free water taxi from the Upper Harbor to the beach and restaurants. Take in a free concert on Thursday nights at the Crow's Nest or on Friday nights at the Boardwalk.

Exposed, high-beam ceilings, custom lighting and skylights, 2nd-story balcony, lower-level patio, and large windows throughout accentuate the natural light and harbor views from almost every room! You are so close to the harbor, you will want to reach out and touch the boats sailing by!

From the back patio, enjoy stunning sunsets while you savor a glass of crisp Santa Cruz Mountain wine. Use the gas BBQ or dine alfresco, while lounging in chaise-style Adirondack chairs. As evening sets in, enjoy the cozy living room fireplace and wrap-around sofa, with views of lighted boats and celestial skies through our panoramic windows or-- for would-be astronomers--through the telescope.

Fully-equipped, state of the art kitchen will accommodate large parties and all of your cooking desires. Granite counter tops, custom cabinets with overflow pantry storage, indoor grilling surface, Subzero fridge/freezer, Miele dishwasher, bar sink and countertop seating for 4, and look-through views to dining area and harbor make this kitchen perfect for entertaining!

Downstairs, the Balinese-theme bedroom is equipped with a CA king bed, flat screen TV and DVD player, nature-scape clock and ipod docking station, and connects to a dual-sided bathroom with tub/shower and separate sinks. The nautical kids’ room is furnished with twin-over-full bunk bed plus twin trundle, and includes a TV/DVD combo and various toys and games for some family fun!

The upstairs master suite and walk-in closet together approximate 500 sq feet! Enjoy the CA king bed, flat screen TV and DVD player, quaint reading area or open floor space for stretching and yoga. Your own private balcony is equipped with table and chairs and offers an amazing birds-eye view of the harbor. The upstairs master bath features an over-sized Jacuzzi tub, large glass block walk-in shower, and dual pedestal sinks, which can be closed off from a separate vanity area and water closet to suit your family's needs. Also upstairs is a guest bedroom and office featuring a full-over twin trundle bed and granite-surface work area, office chair and printer. A queen-sized air mattress is available for additional guests.

The 2 car garage and large driveway provide ample parking for 5 vehicles. Beach supplies, sandbox, water table, toys, games and 2 beach cruisers are included for your enjoyment. Electronic amenities include: flat screen TVs, wireless high speed Internet, printer, and iPod docking stations.

The beach is a 12- minute walk along the harbor. Enjoy the boats, the sea otters and the crabs frolicking on the rocks. Sit and enjoy the setting on benches along the harbor path. Biking is another great option to get to the beach and the lower harbor amenities.

Within walking distance you'll find a selection of entertainment and recreation options including sailing and whale-watching excursions, Arana Gulch open hiking space, Frederick Street Park and Playground, restaurants, mini marts, coffee and souvenir shops. If overflow housing is needed, The Harbor Inn is just around the corner on 7th Ave. A short drive away you'll discover Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Santa Cruz Wharf (a sea lion haven), wine tasting rooms featuring an array of local vintages, downtown Santa Cruz, and the lovely villages of Soquel, Aptos and Capitola. Monterey, Carmel, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach Golf Course, the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Carmel's 17-Mile Drive are less than an hour's drive.
Our home is ONE OF ONLY A FEW sunset-facing, harbor-front homes and offers everything you'll need--amenities, views and tranquility--for a perfect vacation experience!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: My husband and I are long-time residents of the Bay Area and have always dreamed of a get-away home at the beach!

Why Santa Cruz:
When this unique house came on the market, we could not miss the chance of purchasing such a beautiful place in such a peaceful and inviting environment. We look forward to many fun family times with our 3 daughters and wonderful grandchildren. We know you will love this home as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The setting is priceless, with its views down the harbor and overlooking lush, ocean landscape. It is a short , pleasant walk along the harbor path to get to the beach. Every possible amenity & activity is nearby, but we often find ourselves spending the whole day at the house enjoying its tranquility, natural beauty.
