Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We live in the main house and welcome guests to stay in our cottage. My dad left the house to us when he passed and we have poured our hearts into this place. We recently transitioned from the Sacramento area to full time residence in the Santa Cruz mountains. We have tried to make it a place of peace, serenity and love. Our sincere hope is that people will come and feel the same way we do.

Why the Owner Chose Scotts Valley, CA, USA:
This is an amazing place....the house sits on 50 acres of forest in the Scotts Valley area. You can step out the door into the orchard or hike to the top of the mountain. It's quiet and private with all the amenities of home yet close to town and family-friendly entertainment. It's the perfect place to get away and de-stress.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Close to town and boutique wineries, 10 minutes to the beach boardwalk. Winters are cozy by the fire, great for snuggling or watching dvd's. Summer sun streams through the skylights making the house bright and airy.
