About the owner: My name is Wendy Kirkwood and I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio with 3 sisters and 2 brothers. My sisters and I now live in California. One brother lives in Tucson, AZ and the other is in Germany. I am a realtor, property manager and musician (violinist). I fell in love with Santa Cruz the first time I visited here several years ago. I hope you enjoy the area and this house as much as I do. Thank you for visiting my ad and hopefully you will also visit my house ... and love it!
Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz: This house is so special! Even though it is relatively small, the house feels roomy and really lives large. The front patio and back deck and dining area and fire pit area offer great outdoor spaces to dine, relax or congregate. All furnishings inside the home are brand new. The living room has a sectional couch that is very comfy and the flat screen TV has cable as well as DVD so you can kick back and enjoy a movie or two. The house also has free WIFI so feel free to bring your laptop. The kitchen has everything you could ask for including a Keurig coffee maker and complimentary coffee. The kitchen island and counter seats 4. Each bedroom has fresh bedding on the Queen sized beds and both rooms have double sliding glass doors to the back yard/deck so you can get some fresh air at nighttime if you like. The bath has a wonderful shower and bathtub (and the water pressure is delightful). There is also lots of storage for your toiletries. The back yard has a built in dining area (benches, table & chairs) with umbrella that seats 6 or more! The other side of the yard has a fire pit and seating which is so nice during the cool evenings. You are just going to love this place!
The Unique Benefits at this House: This place will make you smile the moment you walk through the archway to the front patio. I think you will also enjoy the screened front door to enjoy the warm California air, the private spaces, the proximity to the beach AND stores. There is a cute little Circle Market down the street where you can pick up snacks or necessities. Across the street is the Circle Church so the house is very easy to find. I think the best thing about this house is the neighborhood and how pleasant it is to be able to stroll along Woodrow Ave, take in the charming houses on your way to the ocean. Ahhhhh!!
