This is the home that words cannot describe…only photos and a first hand look can convey the feeling. As you walk through the front door you hear waves lapping behind you and feel the ocean breeze. Turn around and you see the almost private beach and white water just 60-70 feet from your doorstep. This beach is usually inaccessible in medium to high tides since the only public access is 26th Ave stairs and Moran Beach, since this home is located half- way between.
As you enter the living area, it feels like a dream vacation in the Caribbean you remember….or always wanted. This art form you can walk into is created from the artist’s many trips to the Mayan Yucatan in the 1970’s and other trips to enchanting tropics all over the world.
You feel as if you are swimming in an underwater grotto through crystal clear turquoise water. Above and all around you, are pearl-white flowing ceilings and walls, counters and cabinets of Jewel- like concrete-covered built-ins.
The artist knowing that “form follows function”, designed everything to function easily while looking beautiful ….like the kitchen- living area you would see in a sleek Italian Yacht. The curving floor of turquoise-blue shiny concrete and light-colored bamboo diagonal floor visually mimics sand and sea. The entire home is Designed around the Live-Reef Saltwater Aquarium embedded in the wall between the kitchen and ocean view living area and the ocean view Master Bedroom.
As you follow the sand and sea floor to the Master, you realize you can see the Santa Cruz Wharf and Lighthouse at Steamer Lane from the bed! The sparkling Pearl concrete floor flows into the bedroom with a built- in bed with Aquarium headboard and skylight overhead so you see shooting stars and the moon while lying down. All white Pearl covered cabinets, Hollywood Closet, and Pearl white concrete turbo-tub, Toto-toilet and huge shower complete with skylight overhead complete the dream state that you are relaxing and on vacation everyday.
Downstairs is a large bath and 2 more bedrooms that both are designed to be dual-function as an office and screening room….both with outside access to the beach. Lots of extra storage in the separate laundry room and 2- car garage lined with wall to floor cabinets. To make beach life easier, there are 4 outside doors to access the shared lawn, patio and table overlooking the ocean and beach with 200 degree sweeping views all the way to Monterey and Pacific Grove and over to Lighthouse Point.
From the ocean-front lawn and patio, you can walk down 13 steps down to the best beach in Santa Cruz for beach-glass gathering, body surfing with dolphins, short-board surfing, skim boarding, SUP and Kayaking,and just walking or running all the way to Sunny Cove Beach and restaurants coffee shops. It’s a 30- minute walk to Capitola one way and Santa Cruz Harbor the other way.
