Property description

Two blocks from Lighthouse Field State Beach, West Cliff Drive & beaches, this spacious home boasts gleaming hardwood and tile floors and a floor plan ideal for vacationing. High ceilings, crown molding, gas fireplace, built in cabinetry, Kitchen Aid appliances and plenty of storage set this home apart. Bikes, boogie boards, sand toys, and beach chairs are on site. Mature landscaping and a lovely cedar deck provide indoor/outdoor living at its finest!

The floor plan reflects a modern approach to beach-style living with generous common living space downstairs complemented by three bedrooms and two baths upstairs. The kitchen, dining and living room open to a sunny, private backyard. There is a half bath downstairs that is just off the kitchen.

The kitchen has stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances with white tile counter tops and a breakfast bar. The backyard has a cedar trellis, built-in seating, deck, patio area, BBQ and outdoor dining table.

Upstairs, the home features a 250 sq. ft. master suite with a king-size bed, reading chair, wall-mounted TV, walk-in closet, a bathroom with shower/tub, dual sinks, cabinetry, and views of the backyard.

The second bedroom is 12 x 14 and has a queen bed, large closet and views of the backyard. The third guest room is 12 x 12 has two twin beds, a nightstand, and a walk-in closet with dresser. There is a built-in sitting area with storage where you can find games, toys, and other equipment. The second upstairs bathroom is across from the third guest room.

The house is equipped with 4 beach cruisers, boogie boards, beach chairs, sand toys, and a beach umbrella. We do not provide beach towels to our guests so please bring your own beach towels. This property is our second home and is located on the west side of Santa Cruz in a quiet, sunny neighborhood. Our neighbors are our friends and together we enjoy the tranquil beach lifestyle, and so will you.

Oxford Beach House is a 7 minute walk to West Cliff Drive where you will find Mitchell Cove, the Santa Cruz Surf Museum, Steamer Lane, and Lighthouse State Beach. It is located just over 1 mile from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk where you can find The Big Dipper roller coaster and many other rides and games. There is entertainment for everyone at the Boardwalk, including a bowling alley, laser tag, video arcade and outdoor concerts on the beach every Friday during the summer months. The Municipal Wharf is a great place for food or a beverage during the day or in the evening. The Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf is a 20-minute walk from Oxford Beach House.

Within one mile of our house you can find fantastic culinary options, craft beer makers, wine tasting rooms, surf shops, and beach style convenience stores. These are all within a 10 minute bike ride. If you feel like working out before you head out for some food or beverages, you can walk two blocks to Bethany Curve Open Space which is a par (exercise) course that starts at West Cliff Drive and moves six blocks inland along a dedicated green belt. There is a small creek running up the green belt and the creekside trail is ideal for walks.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I grew up in the Bay Area and for many years our entire family would spend days and weekends in Santa Cruz. My wife grew up about 20 minutes drive from the beach on the west coast of Denmark and is a huge fan of the coastal lifestyle. She and I met in Monterey while we were in graduate school 20 years ago.

Why the Owner Chose Westside, Santa Cruz, CA, USA:
We bought this house after looking for a place to call our second home for more than two years. The first time we walked into the house we immediately knew that this was the place for us. It is peaceful, relaxing, and light, characteristics that allow us to leave behind our busy schedules of work, school, and homework during the week! Our kids love Santa Cruz and spending time on the West Side is a great fit because of the proximity to the beaches, surf and cool people. We love to ride beach cruisers, road bikes, and mountain bikes... and this area is perfect. It’s been our dream to own a home in Santa Cruz so that our kids could experience the lifestyle we had enjoyed and the lessons we had learned as children and young adults. We look forward to spending many years at this house, but we are still working in the Bay Area so we won't be living here full time for a while.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
World-class surf, great walking trails along the ocean, gorgeous sunsets, the sound of the surf from your bed at night, private backyard with mature trees.
