How would 3 park-like acres and a 3+BR/3BA, 3K sq ft home in one of Santa Cruz’s prime neighborhoods sound? Sounds pretty good, but it sounds really great when you learn it’s Pasatiempo, a highly-prized, gated community situated between downtown Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley, and home to one of American’s Top 100 Golf Courses. This unexpected oasis of peace and serenity stands above the rest as having the largest parcel, nicely set back from the street with the privacy you need, and a unique rural and relaxed ambiance. A jaw-dropping kitchen and wide-open living and dining area is the heart and soul for entertaining, and sets the culinary stage for every small and large-scale gathering imaginable. More cabinets and counters than you could hope for, separate coffee bar with prep sink and wine fridge, oversized island with bar seating, and Holiday-sized dining options for a table or two. Walls of glass give it a true indoor/outdoor feel, while expansive decking, seating and alfresco dining options keep everyone happy and connected. And with its warm, fog-free weather, guests can be treated to a bounty of fresh tomatoes picked from raised garden boxes, and a place in the beer garden to enjoy a nightcap under the stars, gathered around a gas firepit. All that sunny weather and lush greenery in Pasatiempo encourages walking, biking and hiking as your daily routine, or use the community pool and tennis court for a nominal cost. This home enjoys all the conveniences we love about single-level, with just the primary suite upstairs having its own deck and views. Other notables include a separate family room, studio space with its own bath, hardwood floors and three fireplaces. Come for a visit and stay for a lifetime!
