Homes for Sale in San Lorenzo Valley, CA

Once in a lifetime opportunity to own 200+ acres in the Santa Cruz Mountains. After serving in WWII, Don and his sweetheart, Anne, relished their free time hiking in the Santa Cruz Mountains. In 1953, with 3 growing boys, they purchased a large parcel on Love Creek with the dream of creating a family retreat. For decades, the "Cabin," as family affectionately called it, became a hub for gatherings, campouts, weddings, & celebrations. Before cellphones & WiFi, time was spent swimming in the pond, fishing for trout & wandering miles of trails until Anne rang the dinner bell. The Cabin evolved over the years becoming a larger version of itself to accommodate the growing number of grandchildren & great grandchildren. The main residence & caretaker cottage sit on meticulously maintained grounds. Multiple parcels, each with unique building sites & expansive views, traverse both sides of Love Creek Rd. This Legacy Property is ready for its next owner to create their own lifetime of memories.
