Tucked off of Columbia behind a private front courtyard, the home opens into the living area with views of ferns and other mature landscaping. Through the living area and past a half bath and laundry you'll find the eat-in kitchen and sliding glass doors to the backyard which has a gas line for all the BBQ fans. 2 bedrooms are found upstairs, the larger of which enjoys its own deck overlooking the front courtyard. A shared bathroom has dual sinks and a walk in shower heated by an on-demand water heater. Don't want to track sand in from the beach? What Santa Cruz home would be complete without an outdoor shower?! A carport offers covered parking - or better yet bring your imagination and explore the possibility of converting it into additional living space. Close to restaurants, breweries, wineries, & more!
