Here's your opportunity to own a Private & Sunny home with Amazing Views!

Literally located at the end of the road, this 3/4+ acre property has been visited by over 70+ species of birds and 20 species of mammals, over the years, not to mention providing habitat for several rare native plants.  

There aren't ANY neighbors visible from the house or most of the property... although if you look closely at the distant ridge across the valley, you'll see a few residences dotting the hillside.

Downtown Boulder Creek


The sellers often jog the quick 2 miles to the charming small town of Boulder Creek, following a route along one of the local's favorite roads for walking dogs or jogging.     This well-kept secret community is nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains, about 30 minutes from Saratoga on scenic Highway 9.    Many residents work in the Silicon Valley.


 The home was built in the mid 1980's.    The design embraces California-style indoor-outdoor living: the Great room 580 Burnside Bendspacious Great Room with vaulted wood beam ceiling opens to sun drenched decks & a fenced in garden.




Updates include: newer laminate floors and dual pane windows.


Imagine cozy fall and wintery evenings sitting around the woodstove -

augmented by the whole-house, forced air propane furnace for convenient modern living.






There's great separation between bedrooms; the top bedroom feels like a crow's nest and is two stories above the other, larger bedroom which is on the ground floor.

All appliances in this bright, recently professionally painted kitchen are included in the sale.       Downstairs you'll find a well lit workshop with shelves, workbench, and a sink.


Inspections are all available, and the meticulous sellers made sure most of the repairs are already done for you, so you can simply relax.


This is a rare opportunity to own an end-of-the-road property in the Private Bracken Brae Country ClubBracken Brae Country Club, where about 20 homes share 70+ idyllic acres to hike, BBQ/picnic, play basketball,  relax at a private beach or splash around in Boulder Creek.

This special property is ideally located about 30 minutes from downtown 
Santa Cruz with it's eclectic shopping and famed beaches.    This is a photo I took at Pleasure Point...





Many Boulder Creek residents work in nearby Silicon Valley.   It takes about 45 minutes to get to downtown San Jose.    


Driving routes include Highway 9, Monterey Bay as seen from Bear Creek Roadand Bear Creek Road to Highway 17.    Both commutes feature spectacular views of the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Monterey Bay.   Commute traffic is usually steady but very rarely backed up or stopped.


Santa Cruz County's vast recreational opportunities are what drew the sellers to live here when they relocated for work in the Silicon Valley.    They've enjoyed hiking (Big Basin, Castle Rock, Henry Cowell, Wilder Ranch, Pogonip, Nisene Marks), to Monterey Bay for diving and whale watching as well as paddle boarding, beachcombing or surfing, to canoing (Elkhorn Slough, Loch Lomond), and mountain bike riding.   There's also a great local golf course: Boulder Creek Golf and Country Club.     Click here for more information on this hidden gem called Boulder Creek.

Hi Garreth Wilcock - I'll have to admit I struggled with getting the photographs to fit in amonst the text the way I wanted.    But the cool thing is, once they're here, it's EASY to put them on a new PINTEREST board!

Thanks for wishing us luck Tony and Suzanne Marriott, Associate Brokers .    I find luck does come in to play sometimes, as long as hard work has also been invested.    You just can't sit back and wait for luck just because you put a sign up and posted in the MLS...

Hi Richard Weeks I hope the open house is well visited also!    It's such a wonderful property, that I want everyone to know about it so the right people can buy it and be the stewards for the next decade or longer.     I'm putting it out there on lots of various social media channels, and will put my signs up Saturday night
