Santa Cruz Mountains Foothills Estate

Located on a bluff overlooking a small valley, sits this beautiful home on a 25-acre parcel with a highly functional front and backyard, including an orchard area and lavender farm. The front yard primarily consists of entry points and parking with automatic gates designed to function properly across a steep cross-slope while creating an architecturally pleasing aesthetic. The backyard includes a full outdoor kitchen with BBQ, pizza oven, refrigeration, cabinetry, and bar style counter. The shade pergola has retractable shade panels and clear side panels so that during inclement weather the pergola can still be used as an outdoor dining room. The backyard also includes a children’s play area that has been designed to convert to raised garden boxes as the children outgrow the play equipment.
 

There is also a lounge area with a gas firepit, and hot tub built into the deck. Below the main landscaped area, a pathway leads down to the boccie ball court. The boccie ball court is a unique feature that has been carved into the side of the hill at a natural bedrock outcropping. In another area of the property where the soil is good and slope is minimal, an orchard area and lavender farm have been created with zones for all types of gardening and a variety of fruit trees; this area is fenced to keep the deer out.
