Santa Cruz studio description

This 'Swanky Westside Studio' is in the heart of Santa Cruz..
Walk to the beach, the boardwalk, or downtown, and come home to a safe and quiet street, tucked away in one of those most desirable neighborhoods in town!

Vacation in style - This spacious and breezy studio comes with a fully equipt designer kitchen, bathroom with custom concrete shower and a very large plasma TV. Also included: a (tasteful;) ceiling fan for summer afternoons and a gas furnace for misty Santa Cruz evenings. It's the perfect choice for couples looking for a romantic spot for 2, artists and writers looking for a quiet and contemplative space, or visiting researchers and professors (we are 2 blocks from the main busline to UCSC)

Live like a local! The studio sits behind the home of an established local artist (me!) Get the inside scoop on the local art and music scene, First Friday Gallery Walk, great venues for live music and dancing, and a private tour of the studio and mainhouse art collection by my favorite Santa Cruz artists.

Have a cup of tea with me in the garden, or a glass of wine with my housemate, the Sommelier :) Who knows what kind of adventure, relaxation and inspiration awaits you in Santa Cruz?

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2006

          About the owner: I am a mixed media artist here in Santa Cruz. I saved up and bought this property with proceeds from my paintings! I fixed it up and added special designer touches wherever I could. This studio apartment is everyone's favorite part :)

          Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
          I fell in love with Santa Cruz the first time I visited! My family drove up from LA to see the monarch butterflies migration to Natural Bridges State Park (just minutes away) I love this property because its so close to the beach, but still JUST outside the fogline. When its cool or windy right at the beach its still sunny in our backyard! It's an oversized lot that was an orchard in the 20's. The neighborhood is safe and friendly, and the neighbors wave hello :) It's a family neighborhood that is very quiet at night - even while being a short walk to downtown. Everyone always says its the perfect location!

          The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
          The studio sits behind the home of 3 young professionals (including me :) ready to point you towards the best art venues, bookshops, music venues, restaurants and wineries in town! Having been here for 16 years, I'm especially 'au current' with any events, openings or farmers markets that might be happening during your stay and I will let you know ;)
