This secluded retreat in the heart of the Santa Cruz redwood forest enjoys year-round sunlight through the ample new double-pane windows and venting glass skylights. Step inside the spacious open-concept living room/dining room/kitchen with a cathedral ceiling and clerestory windows. The spa-like back deck offers a canopy-level view of the forest from which you regularly see deer, turkeys, and the occasional coyote and owl. The home is located in the Forest Lakes community with its private lake, movie nights, and community celebrations in the park.
World-famous state parks are close by, and you can hear the old-timey steam train whistle in the distance. The farmers market and regular concerts at Roaring Camp and Felton Music Hall bring the entertainment to your door while it’s easy to travel as you are only minutes from the highway to San Jose airport. Santa Cruz is just six miles away, with the beach and the possibility of taking your kayaks out for a paddle. Kayaks, mountain bikes, and other gear fit nicely in the massive shed.
