Property Description




Off the MLS for the Holidays, returning next month

Magnificent and spectacular Pacific Ocean view site for the placement of your ultimate dream home and infinity pool, as an anchor for your exclusive private mountain estate.  At an 800 foot elevation on a ridge bounded by Laguna and Majors Creeks on either side, your view shed to the Pacific is the recent Presidentially established California Coastal National Monument lands addition, insuring that no visual development will ever mar the grand natural scenery westward to Pacific sunsets. This protected National Monument is your new neighbor.

This essentially undeveloped 42 acre parcel of huge live oaks, mature virgin redwoods and warm grassy hillsides is surrounded by thousands of acres of open space public lands--keeping you ensconced in nature forever!  The land is directly bounded on one side by the large Wilder Ranch State Park.  Accessed by a short private, paved road off of Pacific Coast Highway One (8 minutes to the beach and 10 minutes to the campus of the University of California at Santa Cruz), the town of Santa Cruz is but 20 minutes away.

Enjoy the twinkle of Monterey Bay shoreline lights after dark and the extreme quiet and solitude from the sounds of civilization, occasionally interrupted by the noise of pounding surf!  Also with ocean and bay views sits an exquisite small guest house retreat of national park style rustic architecture, constructed totally of reclaimed virgin redwood.  The artisanal structure is of post and beam details, expansive view windows and virgin redwood burlwood inlaid doors.

This essentially undeveloped property has never been on the market with all of its current features.  A historic 24X36 virgin redwood barn is for your horses and tractor, and the warm sunny exposure will accommodate a grape vineyard, orchard and solar panels for your residence, pool and tennis court lighting.

Magnificent year-around climate.  Seller has interest in availing seller financing.  This is the ultimate, reclusive, private estate location not far from Silicon Valley, three international airports and the world!  Establish your life of seclusion here!
