Vintage Farmhouse & Barn in the Italian Gardens of Santa Cruz

Own a piece of Santa Cruz history on one of the most coveted streets in town. Located in the “Italian Gardens” neighborhood of Santa Cruz, this home was built by the Ferrari family with old growth redwood in 1906 and has only been sold once in its entire history. Vintage farmhouse with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms all on one level. You are greeted by a charming covered front porch and mature orange & lemon trees. The front room is currently used as a dining room, there is a rambling kitchen with ample cabinet space and a cozy living room next to the fireplace. Full stand-up basement provides a great opportunity for a wine or root cellar, exercise room or just some always-welcome storage space. Next door is the 832 sq ft barn. With its hayloft and patinated tin siding, it is just bursting with rustic charm and so many possibilities. This would be a great space for hobbyists or homesteaders, for artists or artisans, or for a distance-learning pod.

Over the last 2 years this home has been loved and nurtured with close to $100K in upgrades. The highlights are a brand new septic system, upgraded electrical system (all of the knob and tube wiring has been removed), complete interior and exterior paint, new gutters and downspouts, plumbing upgrades and new front stairs.

Currently rented to graduate students for $5800/month, this property is an excellent earner.

Properties rarely become available on this road as it is certainly Paradise Found. There are families that have been here for several generations. This has been a farming community for well over 100 years due to the fertile soil adjacent to the San Lorenzo River. Several organic farms are still operating in the neighborhood and fruit is on the trees all year round. This quiet street is perfect for walking with kids and dogs, dotted with free little libraries, summer produce stands and private river access, this is more than a neighborhood - this is a community. This idyllic setting is not just magical, it is practical in its close proximity to Downtown Santa Cruz, several beaches, UCSC, hiking in Pogonip and Henry Cowell.
