An unexpected urban oasis with a secret garden ambiance nestled right off the beaten path in an eminently walkable Eastside Banana Belt location. Just a short stroll to 67 acre Arana Gulch, an open space preserve with rolling, green meadows and an easy walking trail and bikeways connecting to the Harbor and the best stretches of local sand and surf that Santa Cruz has to offer. Bright, light-filled 3br, 2ba with inviting flow, open kitchen/living, high-ceilings, generous master digs, and excellent separation of space. Just the right size and delightfully dialed & styled with contemporary taste and turnkey features. Expansive rear deck and garden area is a private slice of paradise found. Outdoor dining and entertaining with a spa in the backyard. Raised planters. South-facing Banana Belt sun. All tucked away in a tranquil world of its own that also happens to be in a perfect commute location.
