A rustic wood door and stained glass window lead into this 2-bedroom, 2-bath chalet-style home. From the pine floors, exposed beams, wood window and door frames, cabinets, and wooden railing separating the second story from the first, the warm glow of pine envelops every room.
The ground floor has a spacious great room, running from the front of the house to the back. Its vaulted ceiling adds to the open feeling, with plenty of sunshine streaming in through the skylight and windows. A tile-framed fireplace is flanked by built-in bookshelves. At the other end of the room is a dining area looking out French doors and windows to the back deck. The spacious deck has plenty of room for entertaining and relaxing, screened by a canopy of trees.
The dining area is connected to a well-designed kitchen, separated from the formal dining area by a wood counter and breakfast bar. The kitchen continues the rustic and cozy wood theme, with exposed beams, wooden cabinets with inlay detail, wood-framed doors and windows, and pine floors. A Quartz counter and white tile backsplash contrast with the wood, giving the kitchen a bright feel. A bedroom and bath, with a tiled shower/tub, and a laundry area complete the downstairs layout.
Upstairs, overlooking wood railings to the atrium-style living room below, are a loft-style sitting/office area and master suite with the same exposed-beam, wood-paneled ceiling, hardwood floors, and wood-framed doors and windows as downstairs. The bathroom features a tile-enclosed bathtub and counters. The master bedroom and sitting area each have their own decks, with the sitting area deck suspended over the dense, green treetops of the adjacent Forest of Nicene Marks.
Minutes from Aptos shops, restaurants and the Cabrillo community, this two-story retreat has the convenience of city living with the serenity of a surrounding forest.
