You are not dreaming.  Affordable living in Capitola really does exist.  This spacious home offers the ultimate low maintenance lifestyle in a tucked away and quiet community.  All of this in a walkable location less than one mile to the beach.  

Turner Lane is a highly desirable and extremely well maintained mobile home community.  The location does not get better than this.  Tucked away in Capitola, you can enjoy the quiet of a small community, yet easy access to beach town amenities.  Everything feels like it is within reach - shops and restaurants are easily walkable and the beach is less than one mile away.  Head down to the Village to put your toes in the sand, enjoy the water, or relax over dinner while taking in the views.  No more worrying about fighting traffic to attend the Begonia or Art and Wine Festivals; you just need your walking shoes.  Turner Lane is also an all age park that offers a wonderful environment to raise a family - quiet streets and a strong sense of community.  All of this with the stability and financial security of a space owned park, not to mention low HOA dues.

As you arrive at #76, you notice that the lot and location are unique.  Not only does the home boast one of the longest lots in the community, but it also offers a quiet location.  Toward the end of the street, this corner home allows for more privacy with only one adjoining neighbor in the park.  The community fence is along the east side of the home, while a lovely landscaped common area is behind the home.  This unusual lot offers side by side parking for two cars; so no need for tandem parking.  Both front and rear entrances are equipped with screen doors which allow a cross breeze through the home.

Built in 2002, this mobile home was actually intended for a colder climate.  The extra insulation adds to the energy efficiency and keeps the home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.  The home is quite spacious, offering three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1272 square feet.  The well thought out floor plan includes numerous large windows and skylights which allow light to pour in.  The vaulted ceiling and open floor plan make the home feel even more roomy.  Laminate flooring creates continuity from room to room.  This home is perfect for entertaining friends or family, as you can comfortably accommodate at least 16 people in the living space.  If you enjoy cooking, you will be happy to know that the kitchen features a gas range, built in microwave with venting to the exterior, and plenty of counter space.  The high end dishwasher is exceptionally quiet so as not to disturb your dinner conversation.  Stainless steel appliances, neutral cabinetry and countertops all add to the visual appeal.

The home offers a convenient in-unit laundry.  Both spare bedrooms easily accommodate a queen sized bed, though either room would make an excellent home office.  All of the bedrooms feature a nook above the closets which are ideal for decorative items or extra storage.  The spare bathroom is accessed via the hallway and features a tub/shower combination and a skylight.  The master suite is strategically positioned to enjoy access to the backyard and the view of the landscaped common area.  The ample sized bedroom offers more than enough space for a queen bed, nightstands and a dresser.  The two closets offer plenty of storage space.  The bathroom features dual sinks, a separate shower and deep soaking tub - perfect for evenings when you need to relax and unwind.  The frosted windows and skylight bring light into the room while still allowing for privacy.  

Sliding doors from the master bedroom lead to the backyard.  The private space is perfect for a morning cup of coffee or glass of wine at the end of the day.  The storage shed offers extra space - perfect for bikes, toys or tools.  And don’t miss the lemon tree in the back corner on the yard.

This home offers a low maintenance lifestyle that is perfect for those who want to enjoy life.  Listed at $399,000, it is an amazing price to own a piece of Capitola.  The seller has thoroughly enjoyed living here and hopes that the new owner will appreciate this special home just as much!
