- Branciforte Drive is just slightly outside of downtown Santa Cruz. Once you figure out the streets, you will realize you are actually only 5 minutes from downtown and the beaches, but in a quieter and more peaceful setting.The house location is at the very beginning of Branciforte Drive, about 2 miles before the Mystery Spot, and directly across the street from a very popular trailhead at DeLaVeaga Park. You must be 25 to rent. This place is ideal for families with kids or 2 couples. Great for entertaining but not a party house. It is avery mellow neighborhood....moreless

About the owner: creative professional couple from Santa Cruz. We live on the next ridge over in an old remodeled barn with our 2 cats.
Why the Owner Chose Carbonera Estates, Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
Designing a modern house in Santa Cruz doesn't have to mean building from the ground up. The renovation of this country cottage, build in 1948, enabled me to mix the charming elements from the past with modern details and bring an old building into the future. I designend and remodeled this home for my specs, every little aspect of it was well thought through - plenty of natural light, maximized winter sun, shaded harsh summer rays, modern amenities, a drought resistant yet beautiful backyard - a supercool, minimal, modernist house.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
very quiet and private house, airy, bright but cozy, inspirational yet modest. But most importantly, modern yet in keeping with the rustic charm of the country. Design-build almost from the ground up with a new foundation, new windows , new utilities, custom-built workspaces and interior millwork. We used repurposed timbres for interior shelving and storage. The home, partially tucked into the trees, provides expansive views of the green lush valley through large windows that inject light into the space and provide inspiration. West facing beautiful sunsets!
