Prime location in Live Oak, minutes from everything you love in Santa Cruz, and right down the street from Chanticleer Park. This newer single-level home features a flowing, open floor plan that everyone loves. The kitchen's been nicely upgraded with stone counters, tile backsplash, farmhouse sink, center island with a breakfast bar, and even a French-door oven! The primary suite is a treat, with plenty of space & a walk-in closet; the en-suite bathroom is a delight, having been upgraded with a double stone-topped vanity, a claw-foot tub and tile shower. The star of the show is the pancake-flat 8,100+ square foot lot, bursting with possibility. There's a nicely shaded wood deck and a concrete patio which provide abundant space for entertaining a crowd. Numerous fruit trees have been planted in the sunny open space, which may need to be relocated if you decide to add an ADU, which is a very attractive and real possibility, see the 3D renders for an idea of what could be.
