An arched, leaded glass window in the custom front door leads to a tiled foyer, separating the two levels of this 4-bedroom, 2.5-bath home. On the upper level are an elegant carpeted living room with vaulted ceilings, a gas fireplace with a tiled hearth, and arched windows echoing the front door design and letting in plenty of natural light. A formal dining area is adjacent to the living room, with hardwood floors and a matching arched window.
The hardwood oak floors curve around to an upgraded kitchen with tile floors and counters, clean white custom oak cabinetry, and recessed lighting. Appliances include a double oven w/convection oven, and high-end dishwasher. A cozy den and casual eating area are across a breakfast bar from the kitchen, featuring sun tunnels and opening to a patio with durable Trex decking and plenty of room for a grill and additional seating, overlooking a creek, trees, and wildlife. A wet bar in a corner of the den adds to the entertaining potential, and can be tucked behind accordion doors when not in use. Around the corner from the kitchen/den area, as is a half-bath for guests.
Downstairs, on the same level is a carpeted master suite with its own patio, another gas fireplace, spacious closets, a ceiling fan, views of the creek and trees, and a master bath with double sinks, tiled counters, and an enclosed shower/tub in its own room. Three additional bedrooms, two with patio access, and another bath with a shower/tub. A laundry room with cabinets and a wine cellar is easily accessed. An adjacent two-car garage completes the layout.
This sunny, spacious home feels modern, light, and private, with architectural details and upgrades throughout. A hidden gem, its peaceful, Carbonera creek-side setting combines with the convenience of access to downtown Santa Cruz, beaches, and highways for commuters - a perfect combination.
