Compact floor plan packs a lot of value. Fall in love with the open space in the kitchen, living room, and master suite upstairs. Large sunny windows with airflow and views in all directions (small ocean view) make this a happy place. Great for entertaining: lovely hardwood and tile floors, balcony for viewing fireworks, and large deck off the kitchen overlooks gorgeous garden. Private bedroom, bathroom, garage, and home office/third bedroom below with door opening onto the garden. Eco-friendly inside and out, well-maintained, recently renovated with new roof, insulation, solar panels, water heater, kitchen appliances, fixtures, rugs, and paint inside and out. Drought-tolerant landscape in front, a chef's dream garden in back: labyrinth, terraces, and tiny orchard enhance its charm. Water tank and updated irrigation system save on water bills. Fantastic location: Walk to scenic park, shops on Mission, or Natural Bridges in minutes. Bike 2 miles to downtown Santa Cruz, UCSC, or Wilder.
