Sunshine & flat open spaces are something to covet in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Tucked behind a gate Quail Hollow has them in abundance. This equestrian estate is across from Quail Hollow Ranch County Park where Sunset Magazine began. Step inside onto the refinished hardwood floors throughout the 5 bedroom (2 master) 3 bath home. Stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and more storage than you'd know what to do with - wait until you see the garage! Everyone's favorite room is an upstairs family room with wet bar, fireplace & doors that open onto a deck with views of your property & surrounding hills. But we think you'd spend even more time outdoors. Meander past a waterfall & pond to a pergola with granite counters, stainless sink, grill, warming drawers & fridge. Entertain with bocce & horseshoes. Horse lover? There's a 3 stall barn with tack room, attached paddocks, arena, pastures, shade structure. Lets not forget about the chicken mansion (as we like to call the coop) & pond.
