This perfectly proportioned bungalow opens to a flowing floor plan that includes living, dining, and kitchen areas, all looking out on a stunning outdoor space through double sets of sliding doors.
Inside, wood floors, ceiling fans, and recessed lights add a feeling of light and space. The dining area is set off from the kitchen by an island, topped with black Granite counters over crisp white cabinetry like the rest of the kitchen. A white tile backsplash adds to the modern, clean look, alongside stainless steel appliances that include a 5-burner gas stove with a vent, French-door refrigerator, and ultra-quiet dishwasher.
Through the living and dining room sliding glass doors is a beautifully landscaped yard with a trellised deck for outdoor dining, entertaining and relaxing, a separate fire pit and bird bath, and a sunny picnic spot surrounded by raised beds of thriving, colorful flowers and vegetables. Lemon & apple trees, shrubs, and a tidy lawn add to the lush feel.
The house features three bedrooms, all with wood floors and ceiling fans. The master suite has a cozy wood-burning fireplace with a brick hearth, a ceiling fan, crown molding, and spacious closets as well as a recessed alcove perfect for a bureau or bench. The upgraded master bath has spa features including a soaking tub, glassed-in shower, double sinks, recessed lights, tiled floors and shower walls, and subway tile design.
Two other bedrooms have plenty of natural light; one has built-in shelving that could double as an office. A second bath has also been upgraded with new fixtures and lighting, a tiled walk-in shower stall with a built-in bench and Plexiglas doors. A curtained alcove houses a washer, dryer, and storage cabinet for laundry supplies. The one car garage on the side of the house has additional parking spaces.
Convenient to UCSC and the shops and restaurants on Santa Cruz’s West Side, just a few blocks from the ocean and near Neary Lagoon Park, this charming and beautifully upgraded gem has so much to offer, inside and out!
