528 Wilkes Circle, Santa Cruz, CA

This charming updated Westside vintage home has been beautifully restored to blend its historic features with modern upgrades.  A trellised fence, climbing roses, and low-maintenance front yard shield the front entrance from the street. The front planting beds feature blackberries, raspberries, blueberry bushes and a Meyer lemon tree. Inside, beautiful inlaid wood floors and crown molding under the high ceilings give the living room a traditional feel, with lots of natural light from the room’s windows.

Step through an open doorway to the kitchen, which shares the same gleaming wood floors and crown molding, with wainscoting adding to the classic feel.  The kitchen features a showpiece Wedgewood gas stove, white cabinets and shelving, marble counters, a solid farmhouse sink, and enough space for a dining area.  A spacious walk-in pantry offers plenty of room for organized, easy access storage. 

In an alcove off the kitchen are a stacked front-loading washer and dryer. Just off the back door is a bright sunroom, perfect for a study or playroom.

The home has three bedrooms. Two have wood floors, and the third is carpeted with a modern, seagrass weave.  All three rooms have crown molding and upgraded windows; the master bedroom has a built-in armoire that matches the traditional look and feel.

The bathroom is another blend of classic and modern, with a clawfoot tub, Art Deco tilework, underfloor heating, a double sink with upgraded chrome fixtures, and a sliding barn door with wrought-iron details.

Outside, the front walkway curves around the house to reveal sunny raised beds for vegetable or flower gardening, as well as a new redwood storage shed for gardening tools and other toys such as bicycles or surfboards.  The outdoor shower is perfect for rinsing off sand from nearby beach walks.  There is plenty of additional storage in the garage shed. A private redwood deck is protected by a latticed fence and flowering vines, offering more space for outdoor entertaining and relaxing.

Close to the views and beaches of West Cliff Drive, convenient to shops and restaurants, and bathed in sunshine, this beautifully maintained and restored home blends the best of old and new, inside and out.
