Homes for Sale in East Santa Cruz

@thebeachhousebuyer @bestofsantacruz You might have to read this description three times to recognize the unusually spectacular beach property you have just discovered! First, this home has panoramic views of the ocean, & it owns a large section of the sand. Yes, this parcel extends onto the beach. Imagine what you can do w/ your chunk of the beach. Second, the house was constructed as two separate units, so two families can stay here in separate spaces. Third, this home was extensively upgraded & renovated including extensive structural improvements from the house to the bluff plus an overhaul of almost the entire interior. Fourth, this home sits right above one of Santa Cruz's crown jewels, Seabright Beach (aka Castle Beach), one of the most expansive beaches in the County. No car needed here; bring your sand toys, paddleboards, sailboat, and bike -- you will never be bored. Owned by the same family for fifty-plus years, this property is an heirloom. #leaveittothekids #asgoodasitgets
