SkyHouse is known locally as 'The Crown Jewel'. When the original owners of this ranch became elderly they gradually sold off lots for custom homes. They saved this property, believing one of their girls would build a home on the property. Therefore the streets are named after their girls Carol, Nina, Elsie Mae and Daisy. All of the girls married men from out of town and moved away.
The views are like no other. Red tail hawks soar and hunt in the updraft in front of the property. Deer, raccoons, possum, hummingbirds and owls all pass through the property.
Relax at this mountain resort. Hike or ride your mountain bike or road bike right from the front door onto the fire trails or on the street to Big Basin State Park.

Year Purchased: 1990
About the owner: Susan born and raised in San Francisco. David from a small town in the Northeast on the border of Canada. Susan and David met for the first time February 22, 1999 at The Bach Dynamite and Dancing Society in Half Moon Bay. The meeting was arranged via Love at AOL (now Match). David selflessly taught Susan how to play bass guitar which pretty much guaranteed that there would be a band room wherever they live. We have a complete band room in our Boulder Creek house that includes: drums, percussion, microphones, PA, guitars, bass, keyboards, etc. that we make available to guests. We thought about downsizing for a nano-second but need the entire house for family weekends.
Why the Owner Chose Boulder Creek, CA, USA:
Spectacular view, extremely private and quiet.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Remodel Note: We recently completed a 2 year long major interior and exterior remodel. All rooms, decks, patio, gardens and bathrooms have been remodeled.
