This home boasts charm, flexible space, and even a story. Built in 1872 at the corner of Sylvar and High St, Jack Sylvar entertained customers in a saloon on the 1st level, while his personal residence was above. The home was later moved to its current location.

While updating this registered historic home, the focus was on preserving its character. High ceilings and original refurbished windows make it light and bright; while high baseboards and vintage fixtures add to the charm. Downstairs the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home features a kitchen that makes a statement. Cafe appliances, quartz countertops and subway tile are true to the period while offering modern convenience.


Upstairs, the spacious 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom home offers an office and balcony to enjoy the views of the school, church and hills in the distance. It is perfect if you are looking for separate space for family or additional rental income.


Though tucked away on a cul-de-sac, this home is steps from the best of Santa Cruz. It is only a 6 minute walk to the Clock Tower downtown to grab a bite to eat. Or bike just 8 minutes to spend a day at the beach at the Santa Cruz Wharf and Boardwalk.

This property is just waiting for you to move in and add to its story.
