A labor of love
This property was a decade-long labor of love for "Breezy". She tended the land and built every bit of this property with her hands and love.
The owner who built this house felled, milled and kiln-dried the lumber using redwood trees from the land. The home is built in a mountain chalet style, perfect as a vacation home.
Redwood Chalet - a showcase of excellent craftsmanship and style
This home is set off Warren Drive. To reach this estate, you have a long private drive lined with trees, which leads to this home.
The driveway is partially paved. There are two steep sharp turns to the redwood house that has plenty of parking.
Beautifully built using materials from this property, this home is completely private.
Open its magnificent wooden door and step into a bright and airy great room with an open floor concept. You’ll love its 30’ high Cathedral ceiling with exposed wooden beams.
Your eyes will be drawn to the french doors with glass inserts and large windows overlooking the lush woodlands. These large windows allow natural light to stream into the home, flooding it with warmth and light.
Another wonderful feature of this room which enhance its rustic appeal is the potbelly wood stove which stood beside a french door that leads to a large deck. This stove is ready to warm up this Santa Cruz home on cool nights.
The living room is ample spaced and is everything you want a mountain chalet to be. Cheerful, inviting and completely private, it offers the best retreat and serenity you are looking for.
An impressive country kitchen
Across the living room is a large kitchen to be proud of. This open kitchen has granite counters, gas cooktop, oven, microwave, dishwasher, plenty of wood cabinets, a stainless steel sink and a garden window.
A dining space good for four stood beside another french door.
Like the living area, this kitchen is bright and lovely, enticing you to prepare the best comfort food to match this home’s wonderful ambiance.
Restful nights are yours in this stunning chalet.
This home has two bedrooms on the main level and one on the upper level. The two downstairs bedrooms have sliding doors that open to the wooded backyard. It shares a recently remodeled full bath with a tile shower, tile floor, and black granite vanity sink.

The bedroom has a walk-in closet, built-in shelves and a cubby hole for a dog’s bed. Skylights open to let the bright Bonny Doon sun and air in.
On brisk mornings, this room can be warmed by a sweet little wood stove on a tile hearth. There is a fully windowed outside door in the loft with a plank (don’t walk on it; it’s not yet complete) intended to be a bridge to a dreamy tree house nestled in a circle of redwoods.
A one-of-a-kind chandelier light fixture hangs from the rafters.
From this upper level, you can view the open kitchen and living room.
Enjoy your own outdoor oasis
Step out of the french doors from the living room or kitchen area and onto a gorgeous wooden deck with a built-in hot tub.
This deck is open to the woods and is perfect for entertaining. When you have guests over, this outdoor retreat is the best place for alfresco lunches. The shade of the trees keeps this spot from getting too warm, and you get to enjoy the beauty of nature as you dine.
The second custom built home
At the highest point of this Bonny Doon real estate property is a 30-meter diameter yurt, still a work in progress. It has potential for an ocean view from the large wraparound redwood deck overlooking a magical grove of redwood trees along the side yard.
