This 3-bedroom, 2-bath home in Aptos is set off from the street by a walkway, fence, and gate. The angled roofline and windows frame a front courtyard with both sun and shade. Inside, the door opens to an open floor plan with Saltillo tile floors, a wood-paneled ceiling, and fireplace with a tile hearth.
Skylights and windows let the natural light stream in. Sliding doors open to a sunny paved side patio, with a lattice-topped fence, easy-care ivy borders, and more room for relaxing and entertaining.
The living room curves around to a dining area and kitchen, set off by a half wall and sharing the same wood-paneled ceiling. The kitchen’s white cabinetry, open shelving, tile backsplash, double stainless steel sink, and white appliances give it a clean, efficient look.
Three carpeted bedrooms include a spacious master suite and master bathroom with a combined tub/shower, Saltillo tile floor, tile counters, and white cabinets. Two other bedrooms share a second bathroom, also with white cabinetry, tiled floors, tiled counters, and a shower/tub.
A parking area off the back alley has a spacious shed with plenty of room for beach toys, surfing gear, bikes, and tools.
Just blocks from the beach, restaurants, and shops, this comfortable and well-maintained home is a perfect beach getaway or permanent residence. The Saltillo tile floors in the main living, dining, and kitchen area give the home a Mediterranean feel, relaxed and elegant at the same time. The wood-paneled angled ceiling adds warmth and architectural detail. Ocean breezes and sunshine surround the home and are always accessible through the many windows and both front and back patios.
