Peace, tranquility and serenity are the essence of 25151 Mountain Charlie Road. Over 18 acres allows for privacy and seclusion, while featuring both sloped wooded areas and usable land in full sun. The property’s multiple structures offer so many possibilities.
Mountain Charlie Road is a true mountain road - one lane, sharp curves, and redwoods towering above set the tone. The property feels a world away, yet is located only 1.5 miles or 5 minutes driving distance from Glenwood Drive and 3.6 miles or 11 minutes from Summit Road. You can be at Scotts Valley Drive in under 15 minutes. Yet when you arrive at 25151 Mountain Charlie Road, hectic daily life just seems to fade away.
Adjacent to the road, the property has easy access to Mountain Charlie. Located on the ridge, it is above the fog line and offers long range mountain views. There are three main structures: main home, guest cottage, and detached 4 car garage with adjoining apartment. Each is situated on sunny usable land and benefits from solar power.
The main home features a reverse floor plan with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and 3525 SF. Upstairs you’ll find the living room, dining room, and kitchen - all of which benefit from views. The center piece of the living room is a retro wood burning fireplace - great to warm up on those chilly winter evenings or even to roast marshmallows. Step out onto the wraparound deck to enjoy mountain views, watch the fog lift from Scotts Valley in the morning, or savor the sunset in the evening. There is easily enough space to accommodate both a sitting and dining area. Back inside, the master suite offers an oversized bedroom with a wood burning stove. A spare bedroom and bathroom finish off this level. Downstairs, there are 2 additional bedrooms and bathrooms, a huge family room, and laundry room. Outside on the patio, you’ll find a swim spa - use it as a lap pool to exercise or a spa to unwind and enjoy the stars in the evening. Don't forgot to take a look at the workshop on the other side of the home.
The guest cottage may just offer the best views on the property. The 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1730 SF single level home is ideal for extended family, a rental, or maybe an office space. The views from the sunroom are inspiring, making it the perfect spot for a studio, art room, or seating area. Outside, the private yard space allows for room to garden, play or sit and relax while taking in the views.
The detached 4 car garage is the just the spot to store your mountain essentials. Take your road bike out on Mountain Charlie Road (sought after by avid road bicyclists), or hop on your mountain bike, dirt bike or ATV and head out to Rudy Road and trails on the property.
Attached to the garage is a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 720 SF apartment. This bonus space could be used as a rental, office or storage space.
This property is begging to be explored. Walk up the trail to Vista Point to soak in the views. It is the perfect spot for reading, meditating, or morning exercise. Head to Rudy Road and the connected trails to hike, enjoy nature, or meander through the redwoods.
