Property description

TREETOPS. This idyllic country retreat will literally transport you to new heights. Unparalled woodland setting with canyon vistas and a peek of the ocean. Located in Bonny, midway between Carmel and San Francisco, 5 minutes from California's Scenic Highway 1 and secluded ocean beaches. Surrounded by State Park lands with incredible trees, waterfalls and miles of scenic trails to explore.

Beautiful 3000 sq ft home, 3 BDRM/2.5 bath with 2000 sq ft deck, spa, on 3-acre site, outside fireplace/entertaining area. Unobstructed canyon, meadow and ocean views. Reverse floor plan, literally puts you level with the giant redwoods. Huge kitchen, family area. Lots of sunshine (above the summer fog), surrounded by amazing redwood cathedrals with a gated, cobblestone-style drive. Nice, quiet neighborhood. Leave the windows open at night to enjoy the romantic sounds!

The main floor of the house features a large, cheerful kitchen/family area, a delightful living/dining area that opens to a tranquil veranda, and a master suite that features a 'star-gazing window' and a private deck w/ spa. All rooms have uncompromised views. Leave the windows open at night to enjoy the romantic sounds!

The downstairs area has two guest rooms with a shared bath, an extensive library, a media room, an outdoor fireplace/entertaining area with a built-in barbecue and access to your own amazing Redwood Cathedrals (fairy rings).

The rustic, 3-acre gated property is surrounded by giant trees and meadows and is within walking distance of a small boutique winery. This home works well for two or 3 couples and will comfortably sleep 6 (2 queen beds, 3dr bdrm has 2 twins).

The community of Bonny Doon is known for its scenery, mild climate, vineyards, lack of traffic and proximity to pristine beaches, surfing, golf, equestrian facilities, bicycling, birding, the Santa Cruz Wharf and Boardwalk, Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary, UC Santa Cruz campus, fantastic restaurants, eclectic shops and unique music venues. We are less than 20 minutes from Santa Cruz and UCSC. It is quite literally a vacation paradise.

Ideally located on the Central Calif Coast, mid-way between San Francisco to the north, the Monterey Peninsula and Big Sur to the south. The area is considered to be a vacation paradise, with year-round moderate temperatures. Redwood forests, deserted beaches, unique little get-aways ..it is all here.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: About us: We are a -young- ;o) retired couple who enjoy adventure and travel ...always on the go. Our children and grandchildren live all over the world. My husband is a former small business owner (commercial printing company) and is the inventor of a successful golf product. I worked many years as a law librarian and continue to do specialized investigative research for select clients. Bonny Doon is our home 6 months of the year.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
We love it here, and our family and friends like to come and just sit and stare, there is always something to see. We searched the Western States for 'the perfect place' and believe we found it. We like being near towns and activities, but we also want to be away from traffic and crowds. We also like the proximity to San Francisco/San Jose Bay Area and cultural events. Bonny Doon is a very loosely organized rural community, an ephemeral oasis, much like the classic musical/movie, 'Brigadoon' it is more a state of mind than a place.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Tranquil, serene beauty, incredible views, a Feng shui place for the body and mind. Lots of wildlife, the morning calls of the Valley Quail, the hooting of the owls at night, the occasional cry of coyotes, cottontail rabbits, deer, fox, bobcat, ...The most beautiful trees, three incredible redwood 'cathedrals' sometimes called 'fairy rings'. We are surrounded by State Parks and State Beaches yet we are not 'isolated' in the sense of conveniences. There is a good restaurant just down on the coast, 5 minutes away.
