Santa Cruz house description

This Original Seabright Beach single story cottage was converted in the early 1900's to a two story Craftsman Bungalow. The home is furnished with nautical decor. Upstairs sunroom looks out to the bay and municipal pier beyond. Peaks of the ocean from three other upstairs bedrooms. Upstairs bathroom is large with old fashion clawfoot soaking tub. Downstairs has a large living room, large dining room, large kitchen with eating nook, also a private bedroom off the front porch, and the west bedroom with its own enclosed sun porch. The home sits on a corner lot surrounded by well kept lawns and gardens with many cozy sitting areas, some with a view of the beach, a welcome after a long day at the beach. Wake up each morning to the gentle reminder that you're as the beach with the sound of waves and sea lions barking in the distance.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: As a little boy growing up in the San Joaquin Valley, I remember looking forward to going to Santa Cruz every summer to spend 1 week with my grandparents and my young single aunts. Every year my Grandparents would have two grand children stay each week until all my cousins had a chance to vacation each summer. They sold there beach home in th late fifties. So when My wife and I got married we would vacation in Capitola and Santa Cruz and rent at the beach somewhere. We would ride around on our bikes with the kids, always keeping an eye out for a small place to buy. After renting for several years we found a small fixer upper. Being a young general contractor with lots of ambition, we began fixing it up, enjoying Santa Cruz and the beach also. As soon as the sun was out, we were off to the beach. Well after 14 years the little cottage became to small. So one day on a trip to the yaght harbor, we ran across this old Craftsman House that needed some TLC. We fell in love with it and with my ability to do the work we bought it. So now we are the Grandparents having my kids and grandchildren spend fun time at the beach. We have met so many nice families who we have rented to and many still return after many years. Everyone is happy when your'e at the beach. We love it.

                  Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz:
                  When we found this home in this location by the ocean we could't pass it up. The home is in a great neighborhood with many neighbors who have been here for decades enjoying their families at or near the beach. There is lots to do around here for everyone.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We, as well as our guests really enjoy the feel of this Early American Craftsman Style Home. When you step in the front door you you feel like you just stepped into an lodge. All of the wall are wood, floors are all wood, ceilings are all wood, with a rock fireplace. It's has a cozy feeling both indoors and in the gardens with many different seating areas.
