A curved walkway winds past a maple tree to wide brick steps, leading to the inviting double door of this contemporary three-bedroom, two and a half-bath residence. Inside, a foyer opens to a formal carpeted living room, with a vaulted ceiling, fireplace, and French doors leading to the back yard. On the other side of the foyer, an open floor plan flows from a formal dining room with a parquet floor that connects to the living room, the kitchen, an informal dining area, and a cozy den. The den has its own brick-hearth fireplace and wood floors, looking out on the same back yard and greenery. The kitchen and informal dining areas have sliding glass doors to the newly built back deck.
The airy, open kitchen features recessed lights, white cabinets with plenty of storage, granite counters, stainless appliances, a dual stainless steel sink, wood floors, and a breakfast bar. The informal dining area has sliding doors to the deck, letting in plenty of light and views of the mature trees beyond. Steps from the deck lead down to another landscaped outdoor area and an arroyo. A half bath, separate laundry room, and attached two-car garage complete the downstairs layout.
Upstairs are three carpeted bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, sliding glass doors to a view deck, walk in closet and a master bath with dual sinks, wood floors, a tub surrounded by tile, and a separate glass shower enclosure. One of the additional bedroom has it’s own sliding doors and private deck, as well as a walk-in closet. The other bedroom has vaulted ceilings. The second bath features a skylight, wood floors, tile counters, and a shower/tub combination.
Convenient to UCSC and downtown but surrounded by nature, this upgraded and spacious Westlake home offers plenty of room for a family and guests, as well as gracious entertaining inside and out.
