This elegant, well-maintained townhome is conveniently close to Cabrillo College and its bustling year-round Farmer’s Market, the villages of Aptos and Capitola, and Highway 1, without sacrificing easy access to the natural beauty of the redwoods and trails of Nisene Marks, the sand and stunning views of New Brighton Beach, or a nearby gym, park and tennis courts across the street.
Light streams in everywhere — through French doors, cut-glass squares by the front and patio doors, sun tunnels, and an extra kitchen window overlooking the flagstone patio. A two-story, atrium living room ceiling lends the freshly painted living/dining area even more light and spaciousness; a fireplace in the living room (embedded in a marble mantel) makes a cozy fire on a cool night as easy as turning a switch. Custom wood blinds add privacy, while the UV-resistant Pella windows throughout make it easy to either block noise or drafts, or catch refreshing cross breezes on a warm day.
The updated, efficient kitchen features distinctive tile counters and premium appliances, including a five-burner gas stove, high-performance hood vent, and super-quiet dishwasher. New stain-resistant Sisal carpet in the living/area gives way to easy-care tile in the entryways and kitchen, with extra pantry space available in the downstairs hall closet.
Plush wall-to-wall shag carpeting starts on the stairs and continues across all three upstairs bedrooms and the hallway that connects them. The master bedroom features a raised design on one wall, marble bathroom floors and counters, and light-blocking honeycomb blinds. Custom shelves have been added to make the master and study closets do double duty. Both back bedrooms look out on greenery, enhancing the sense of privacy. All three bathrooms — two full ones upstairs and a half-bath downstairs — have newer Toto low-flow toilets.
A one-car garage includes storage and shelving along one wall and houses the added central vacuum system and water softener units. Additional guest or homeowner parking is available in spots near the driveway and at the complex’s entrance, and street parking is usually ample just outside the unit’s back patio door, making it easy to ferry groceries and other items directly to and from the patio entrance.
Every one of the home’s 1,485 square feet has been put to great use and advantage, adding light, comfort, and extra storage to a location that perfectly balances a gracious, peaceful retreat with accessible ease and convenience.
