Welcome home to this Lower Westside Gardener's Paradise! Enter in the front gate to a slate tile patio surrounded by fruit trees, succulents, and ferns. Take a few steps up into the beautifully updated home with Marvin windows, radiant heated floors, and Farrow & Ball paint. The main kitchen, equipped with granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, opens to the living room to provide a great space for entertaining. The two bedrooms, each with separate loft space, sit off the kitchen/living room and share a Jack & Jill bathroom. The back of the home gets wonderful natural light and is currently set up as a separate living space, which makes a great opportunity for multigenerational living or additional rental income. This space could be used as a dining room with den, home office, artist studio, or separate sleeping area. Elegantly remodeled, this home earned the Green Building Award from the City of Santa Cruz in 2010. Enjoy the Santa Cruz sun in the back yard with its own slate tile patio, multiple planter beds, and mature fruit and avocado trees. Don’t miss the yurt, which provides a great space to do yoga or to sleep under the stars. Close to shopping and the Swift Street restaurants/breweries & wineries, you don’t want to miss this wonderful home!
