About Corralitos, CA Homes For Sale

Corralitos is a small community nestled in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, located just outside of Watsonville, and is one of the best places to live in the county. If you’re looking for a little more elbow room than your average city lot, a home in this Santa Cruz County town might be exactly what you need.

Corralitos properties are found just outside of Watsonville, with the charming community of Aptos just 15 minutes away. While many of the listings in this area will typically include sprawling multi-million dollar luxury estates, you can just as easily spot a quiet and cozy cabin in the forest if that's more your style.

Many of the property owners in Corralitos have been longtime residents of the area, with family farms or properties passed down from generation to generation. Over time, homes were added around the property lines and on roads that branched off from the main road, but for the most part the area remained undeveloped. Homes in Corralitos are found on large lots ranging from a quarter acre to rural country estate properties featuring breathtaking views of the rolling hills and Monterey Bay.

Whether you’re looking for a modest bungalow or a palatial custom estate, you’ll find it on the Corralitos real estate market. It's often that homes in this area will include fabulous chef’s kitchens, spa-like master suites, formal living and dining rooms, and even wine cellars and media rooms. Outside, Corralitos properties feature exquisite gardens, swimming pools, expansive patios, fruit trees, and even equestrian facilities.

What's unique about Corralitos homes is that they're typically slightly more affordable than homes close to the coastline and have the added bonus of more property as well. What's especially attractive about Corralitos is that properties are graciously spread out from one another. Unlike Rio Del Mar, Soquel, and Capitola, residents here bask in the quiet sounds of birds chirping and gentle breezes.
