1700 Malcolm Lane, Santa Cruz

2 bedrooms   |   1 bathroom   |   1100+ SF   |   Sold for $650,000

Yes, 17th Avenue is a busy street, but you must come inside to fully experience the transformation of this single story 1937 home to a modern beach house. An ideal base to enjoy the coastal lifestyle.

Open the gate and walk into to the front yard, which features a new redwood fence and fresh landscaping. This is a lovely spot for pets to play or possibly to add some raised gardening beds. As you enter the home, you immediately see that it is open concept. The living room, kitchen and dining area flow together to create the perfect space for entertaining or just relaxing. Work on your laptop or read a book in the cozy nook, watch TV or listen to music in the living room, or play a game at the dining table. The kitchen is designed to impress. Modern white cabinetry, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, updated fixtures, and even a beverage refrigerator. While cooking in this fresh, up-to-date kitchen, the large island is the perfect spot for your family or guests to gather. True Santa Cruz living brings one from the inside to the outside with ease. Just step out the french doors onto your private deck - an ideal spot to barbecue, lay back in a lounge chair, sit with family and friends, or enjoy a morning cup of coffee or a glass of wine at the end of the day.

The home features two bedrooms, one bathroom, over 1100 square feet and a two car garage. The two bedrooms are off the hall. The wood accent wall in the master adds a unique touch, while french doors allow for easy outdoor access. The modernized bath with tile flooring, and a glass tiled tub enclosure & wall is between the two bedrooms. Lastly, the attached two car garage offers plenty of space to store the Santa Cruz essentials: beach gear, surf boards, kayaks, or bikes.

Now go and explore the neighborhood. The home is centrally located between the city of Santa Cruz and Capitola with easy access to beach town amenities. It is less than 3 miles or a 12 minute drive to head downtown for dinner, window shop in Capitola Village, or pick up groceries on 41st Avenue. Walk to grab your morning coffee at Coffeetopia or head around the block to take your pup to the Chanticleer Avenue dog park. Heading to the beach? You’ll be happy to know that Sunny Cove is only 1.3 miles or a 25 minute walk away. Or bike the 2 miles (only 11 minutes) to the Harbor to grab a bite at the Crow’s Nest and watch the sun set at Twin Lakes Beach. If you’re interested in catching a wave, it’s just over 2 miles to the Hook or 38th Avenue.

Priced at $639,000, this transformed home is just waiting for new owners. Let it be you. But no sale unless you take the buyer’s oath: “I will relax more, I will enjoy the outdoors often, and I promise to appreciate as much of Santa Cruz as possible.”
