The Space

A redwood-floored sun-filled, shuttered bedroom with arched windows and gabled ceiling in a unique 1860s home in Santa Cruz. My unique 'Carpenter Gothic' is one of the earliest houses built by settlers in the mid 19th. century. Both room and
adjacent bathroom (shower, toilet, washbasin) are fully remodelled and immaculately clean on the second floor of my home. The guest room is private, quiet, and
has its own entrance staircase. It also offers panoramic views of the Monterey Bay in one of Santa Cruz's oldest, safest, quietest neighborhoods. Walking distance to downtown through other historic areas. 1/2 acre of mature gardens and an
'orchidarium' surround this unique house on the hill.
The main bus line to UCSC has a stop 3 minutes' walk away; the main terminus is a 15" walk - all downhill! Nearby attractions include the Santa Cruz Mission, its park and
all the old historic downtown replete with Victorian homes a large variety of coffee shops and restaurants. The bus route goes straight up to the UCSC Main campus; the bike ride up the hill takes about 20 minutes and granny gears!

Santa Cruz, California, United States · Member since August 2010

I am a phonetician, speech technologist, and linguist.
Apart from my professional work, I enjoy my unique Victorian house, gardening, growing orchids, cooking and fine wines, antiques, painting, hiking, camping under the stars, international travel, and, most of all, my gorgeous Bengal cat.
This is a quiet, non-smoking, cat-loving house where dogs would have a hard time but cat-lovers will be delighted!
