Do you prefer a bight and sunny home with large windows, an open living space, in a newer low maintenance home?  What if it were located in a peaceful hillside surrounding, yet still convenient to town and the beach?  If so, this home may be for you.

Carriage Acres is a sought after mobile home community.  Nestled in the Soquel hills, it feels like you are far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.  Yet in reality, you are located only one mile from Soquel Village, and have easy access to shopping, restaurants, and of course antiquing.  This location offers many benefits.  Since the fog burns off quicker here than other areas, you can enjoy the sun and warmth at home while living within a short 2.5 miles to the beach!  This community is ideally located for commuting, both for taking the back route over the hill or quickly accessing Highway 1.  Interested in walking trails, a playground, or a spot for a game of soccer or baseball?  Then you will appreciate that Blue Ball Park is less than a 10 minute walk away.  For a quieter route, take the shortcut at the back of the community through the residential neighborhood.  The Park’s picnic benches or pavilions are a great venue for outdoor gatherings.  Or if you would like to host an event indoors, you could use the clubhouse in Carriage Acres.  This all age park is also located close by Soquel High School, Soquel Elementary, and Main Street Elementary.   And you can have all of this in a nicely maintained park with affordable space rent.

As you walk up to #58, it is evident that the home has been well cared for.  The exterior was freshly painted last year.  The landscaping is well manicured and low maintenance, featuring palms at the front of the home and river rock on the other sides.  Both front and back entrances offer screen doors, which are ideal to allow for a cross breeze on warm summer days.

The mobile home has two bedrooms, one bathroom, 760 square feet, and a carport that can accommodate two cars.  As you step through the entry door, you immediately notice that this home is open concept.  It is light and bright due to the numerous large windows and Southern exposure.  The vaulted ceilings add to the spacious and airy feeling.  The home is set up for entertaining, as the kitchen, dining area, and living room are completely open.  If you enjoy cooking, you will be glad to see that the home features a gas range.

The spare bedroom perfectly fits a twin bed.  It would also work well as an office.  The home offers in-unit laundry - that means no more inconvenient trips to the laundromat!  Though if you ever need to do extra loads, the park does provide a community laundry facility.  The bathroom can be accessed both from the hallway and the master bedroom.  It offers a tub/shower combination and features a skylight.  The master bedroom easily accommodates a double bed and two nightstands. 

Outside, the space behind the parking area is perfect for outdoor seating or dining.  The lattice offers a measure of privacy.  Behind the home, there is a small yard space and a shed for extra storage.  It is great for storing bikes, tools, or items that are occasionally used. 

This home features neutral colors throughout and is just waiting for your personal touch.  Priced at $145,000, it is a great value.  The owner has appreciated her time living here and would like to hand it off to someone that will value it as well.
