These two charming, upgraded, and beautifully maintained properties are on a sunny lot in Watsonville. The main house, closest to the street, has a paved walkway through a landscaped front yard, leading to brick steps. Inside, a vestibule opens to a spacious, carpeted living room with banks of windows with plantation shutters, a ceiling fan, and crown molding. French doors on either side of the living room lead to two carpeted side rooms with similar windows, molding, and window treatments that could serve as a den, office, or bedroom. One has a gas fireplace with a tiled hearth, flanked by built-in cabinets on either side.
Through a framed opening from the living room is a dining room with hardwood floors, more crown molding, and its own set of French doors to the trellised brick side patio. An elegant, upgraded kitchen has cherry cabinets, tile counters and backsplash, a separate island with space for a in-kitchen seating, double sink, stainless side by side refrigerator, under-cabinet microwave, double ovens, recessed lights, built-in pantry with shelves, and laundry room. An alcove with wainscoting and a chair rail, tiled floor, and framed by windows offers a handy, comfortable spot for a kitchen table.
The master bedroom has more windows, a ceiling fan, wall sconces, crown molding, and a hallway containing spacious closets with sliding doors. The home has two bathrooms, featuring tile counters, wood cabinets, and tiled shower/tub combinations. A spacious laundry room with wood cabinets & pantry completes the layout. A deck with wood railings runs along the back of the house, with steps to a yard separating the main house from the smaller unit behind it.
Set off from the main house and separated by a hedge, lawn, and walkway is the smaller home, connected to a two-car garage. This cozy cottage has hardwood floors, plenty of windows to let in natural light, a separate dining area off the living room, and a modern kitchen with tile counter and backsplash, wood cabinets, stainless appliances, a double sink, and a separate laundry/pantry area. The bedroom also has hardwood floors and an en suite bathroom, with a pedestal sink, step-in shower, and new tile. Connected by a driveway and yard but private from one another, these homes make a perfect pair.
