227-229 Bay Street, Santa Cruz
Gary Fusari & Sons Construction have created a Mediterranean masterpiece two blocks from West Cliff Drive on Bay Street in sunny Santa Cruz. Walking distance to Pacific Garden Mall, the Beach Boardwalk, the walking path along Westcliff Drive, the famous Santa Cruz Wharf plus the best Surfing and Sailing on the West Coast. This 2,321 sq. ft., 2 story home with a detached 624 sq. ft. Casita features quality craftsmanship, designer brand appliances and the latest in floor coverings.
The entry to the main home follows the paver driveway past the Casita and a two car oversized finished garage. The Front Door opens into an entry way and the living room with a gorgeous gas and wooden mantel for those chilly beach nights. One can't help notice the natural light flooding in from the wall of glass across the entire back side of the home toward the huge gourmet kitchen and dining area.
Tumbled travertine flooring covers the entire downstairs and even continues out to the patio through a 16 foot set of La Cantina Doors that louvre open inviting the outside in. The welcoming, large back yard features a manicured lawn area, a planting area with a row of trees along the back fence and a vintage brick patio area with a built in BBQ reminiscent of days gone by.
The kitchen is the jewel of the downstairs living area. There is custom built bamboo cabinets with glass uppers, self- closing drawers and doors create an elegant ambience. It is complimented by Thermador stainless steel appliances and a huge island with a gas cooktop and plenty of workspace covered by uniquely textured quartzite countertops and back-splashes. Seating for four along the island allows friends and family to gather while the cooks prepare food and drinks. An adjoining dining area provides space for the family to enjoy meals together and chat with the chefs too! A half bathroom and a separate laundry room complete the downstairs with access to the attached garage. On demand hot water heaters, radiant floor heating, smart phone features to turn on and off your lights, garage doors and more are just a few of the custom amenities.
Up the staircase, smartly covered in bamboo treads and colorful hand painted tile risers, are three spacious bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Wall to wall carpeting covers the floors upstairs and radiant heating keeps the rooms warm and cozy. The separate family room is where your family and friends will gather for fun and games! The bathrooms feature tile floors and vessels sinks. Each bathroom has towel warmers, connected to the radiant heat system, that insure towels are warm, dry and cozy! The master bathroom has duel sinks, a separate glass shower and a luscious free standing soaking tub.
On the opposite side of the garage is the “Casita” with a one bedroom, one and a half bathroom that has its own separate address. The entry door opens into a beautiful living room, a full functioning kitchen with bamboo cabinets, stainless steel appliances and a half bath. A laundry area is located inside the lower level bathroom, insuring the space is fully self-sufficient. The second floor features a sizable bedroom with a walk in closet and full bathroom with the same quality finishes as the main home contains. The Casita has its own private front courtyard too.
