Property description

The 'Swanky Westside Studio' is in the heart of Santa Cruz! This listing is for a large spacious bedroom and artspace at the back of our home with it's own private entrance through the backyard. A unique accomodation for those who resist the status quo, it is my printmaking studio!

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 loft like space has a designer bathroom with custom concrete shower, mini bar, movie collection, free WIFI and a very large plasma TV. 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 sometimes if I am home!) a private tour of my art studio and house art collection by my favorite Santa Cruz artists.

Large garden and backyard patio bonus! Have a glass of wine at the garden banquet table, or grill some local organic dinner on the brick bbq pit. 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 Westside, Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
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 "Swanky Studio" sits in the back of the home I share with 3 young professionals. Whether in town at check in, or over the phone when I am out of town, I am willing and ready to point you towards the best art venues, bookshops, music venues, restaurants and wineries in town! Having lived in Santa Cruz for 20 years, I'm especially 'au current' with special events, openings or farmers markets that might be happening during your stay and I will let you know ;)
