A landscaped front yard and a grove of palm trees lead to this gracious sun filled single-level, 4-bedroom, 3-bath 3336 SF home on a sunny lot in Watsonville. Walk up the tiled walkway & steps to the front door, and into the entryway with wood floors, and arched openings that lead in two directions: ahead to a spacious living room, or alongside the front of the house to an open kitchen and informal dining area, both featuring the same elegant oak wood floors.
The living room features a traditional mantle surrounding the fireplace, flanked by windows on either side. Bookcases highlight one wall. In the middle of the open, airy room is a dining area, set off by beams, with French doors leading to the tiled patio outside - large enough for another ample dining area overlooking a gazebo and shade trees.
The dining area circles back to the front of the house and the custom-designed kitchen, connected by the oak floors and recessed lights of the living and dining areas. Caesarstone counters, a Viking range and hood, white cabinets with brushed chrome hardware, a Miele dishwasher, farmhouse sink, and a crisp white tile backsplash combine the best of modern design and functional workspaces. Pendant lights - one over the counter and another over the breakfast nook - add a custom touch. There is a walk-in pantry with custom cabinetry and an adjacent oversized coat closet.
On the opposite side of the house is a dramatic family room, featuring a custom tiled floor with a diamond pattern, a stunning wood ceiling with exposed beams, a built-in bench under windows overlooking tropical foliage, a fireplace encased in flagstone bricks from floor to ceiling.
Four bedrooms include a master bedroom with hard wood floors, sliding doors overlooking the patio’s poolside views, recessed lighting, and a wood-inlaid wall echoing the floor’s warm glow. An upgraded master bath features custom checkerboard tile work, a spacious glassed-in shower, and an elegant pedestal sink with custom made cabinetry. A second bedroom has wood floors, and looks out on the pool through sliding doors, and has its own upgraded bath with custom tile, a sun tunnel and upgraded lights and fixtures. Two smaller bedrooms have recessed lights, oak floors, and ample natural light. The hallway features a sun tunnel & glassed-in display shelves which adds even more room for storage and staying organized. The third bathroom with a tiled shower/tub and wood floors is next to the laundry area with wood cabinets for extra storage.
The most distinctive feature of the paved patio curving around the house is a stunning pool with a brick outline, surrounded by lush tropical foliage and palm trees. Around the sunny pool area is plenty of room for relaxing and entertaining, with attractive, low-maintenance stonework throughout. A two-car garage completes the layout, featuring two walk in storage rooms behind the garage.
Spread across three parcels, this spacious, elegant home makes poolside living and gracious entertaining effortless. The combination of sparkling water, palm trees, and architectural upgrades creates an inviting, peaceful retreat from the busy world outside.
