This hillside estate's modern, thought-provoking design plays perfectly with the beautiful outside landscape to create a relaxing and luxurious escape. The open-plan living space's high ceilings, European white oak floors, and grand picture windows made of ultra-durable fiberglass allow natural light to pour into the living space with an elegant Carmel stone gas fireplace framed by the view and the spacious wrap-around deck. The kitchen is a chef's dream with all Viking appliances, including a 6-range oven, handmade iridescent subway tiles imported from Spain, and a breakfast bar where the Calacatta Porcelain slabs' waterfall edge cascades down on one side. The dining space is well-lit, has a wine rack, a bar, an authentic crystal chandelier, and plenty of room to host guests for a lavish dinner. The top floor suite has two walk-in closets, a separate entertaining area with a bar and wine rack, and a luxurious ensuite with a massive shower and tub. The primary floor suite is bright and has a walk-in closet and an ensuite complete with a deluxe shower and tub framed by a stunning picture window out to the serene bamboo outside. Two additional rooms can serve as guest bedrooms, a study, or a workout room. Chores are made easy by the convenient laundry room. The extensive 6-car driveway beside the lush green yard leads to a 2-car garage with a tesla charger. While on a private, no-through road, this neighborhood is surrounded by a 22-acre preserve of hiking trails and is minutes from Hwy 1 to downtown Santa Cruz, Watsonville, or Monterey, and is an easy 11 minutes to Seascape Park Beach.
