This two-story beach home takes full advantage of the spectacular stretch of coastline that unfolds outside its many windows. Stretching across the entire second story, a bank of windows frames the open living/dining/kitchen area along the ocean-facing side of the house, letting in sparkling light and sea breezes, along with views of the Aptos famous cement ship. A long deck outside brings you and your guests even closer to the sounds and sights of the surf.
On cooler, mistier days, the large living room’s exposed beam ceiling and corner wood stove keep things cozy. There are two eating areas, each with its own chandelier. One has room for a formal dining table, with a set of built-in shelves offering more options for storage or display. The other is a cozier nook that seats four comfortably. The dining areas flank either side of the kitchen, with the living room between them and all facing the gorgeous view. Even more seating is available on the upstairs deck, for enjoying a meal outdoors or entertaining. A set of built-in shelves in the dining room offers more options for storage or display.
The kitchen’s white cabinets and counter tiles keep the room light and airy, with its own views of treetops and sky and plenty of storage, including pantry or extra storage shelves. The exposed beam ceilings and wood floors contrast with the bright cabinets. A convenient counter-height pass-through to the dining area has matching doors that allow the kitchen to be connected to the living and dining areas, or closed off.
The carpeted bedroom has sliding doors that let’s in the light. The tiled bathroom with double sinks, a shower/tub and recessed lights, featuring the same bright and white cabinet as the kitchen. Two other carpeted bedrooms have spacious windows screened by trees outside, yet letting in plenty of light. A second bathroom features a tiled shower, its own linen closet, as well as plentiful cabinets for other storage. A tiled and spacious laundry area has additional cabinets, natural light from its own window, and a spacious utility sink. An attached carport makes protected parking easy.
Just a few convenient steps away from restaurants and shopping, the upstairs living spaces keep this beach getaway peaceful, with plenty of sunlight and lots of rooms for the guests and visitors who will want to enjoy the view, too!
