We have many wineries and fine restaurants in the area. Sunday brunch at ' the Buttery' with live music is a treat, as are Tuesday ' neighbor nights' at La Posta. Kuumbwa Jazz club ( www.kuumbwajazz.org) has world class concerts. The various farmers markets in the area are abundant sources of organic produce, fish and meats and our local market, Shoppers Corner has everything you need, including an incredible selection of wines.
I am never bored in Santa Cruz; we have eight art cinema screens and 11 others, within the City limits.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I am a cook, gardener, dancer, walker, swimmer and I love France and Italy. I loved this property the minute I discovered it. I hope that you will also enjoy the contemporary feel of this home. I grew up in Europe and also in the mountains of North Carolina; the sophistication and yet sense of nature at the home appealed to me immediately. My father was an architect. He would have loved this property and I am sorry he never got to see it.
Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz: It is delightful! a private patio with non-fruiting olive tree and a light filled main room. There is room to dance and to do a movement practice. There is a wonderful sound system and the kitchen was created for a real cook. I love the colors and the hand held European shower in the bathroom. The lighting is fabulous, and I have decorated with Haitian and Mexican paintings as well as photographs of France and a Balinese hanging. Nothing is funky about the place...
You can walk or bike to down town and to local restaurants such as ' La Posta', 'linda's', ' Lillian's' and ' The Buttery'.The neighborhood is terrific. My favorite thing to do is to walk over to Verve for coffee, then down Seabright beach and the Walton Lighthouse...or you could go to
' Aldo's' and hang out!!!
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: Seabright, Santa Cruz, and all the benefits our community has to offer. A little patio with Proteas and other Australian plantings.
