Imagine coming home after a bone crushing day at work to your own private retreat nestled in the sunny warm part of Aptos. The drive through lavish estates and apple orchards start to wind you down as you slowly lose cell phone reception the calls and emails can no longer chase you. Crisp pool and bubbling hot tub where you can have your pool parties.

Crawling in from the car you can go upstairs and get into something more comfy and then go down to the gym for a small workout to release tension.  You can then walk over to the river rock lined hot tub and relax and have your day melt away.  Then you can go meet with your sweetie in the kitchen where you crack open a bottle of wine and cook a romantic dinner……   200_lupine_valley_driveway1

If there are young children in your immediate or extended family, do you have any idea how excited they would get if you made a big deal of having their first pool party.  The party could start on the deck where you organize all the gear- towels, sunscreen, snacks, snorkel, goggles, inflatable shark, and double barrel super soaker.  When the party begins you can sit back and watch the fun from the upper deck safe distance from the water cannon or on the redwood deck by the pool tanning on the lounge chair.  When lunch is ready the kids can all spread out on the deck and dry off while you are just steps to kitchen and can bring out the PBJ sandwiches.  It’s ok if the little guys sneak in trying to grab a cookie as the floors are Saltillo tiles so they are easy to wipe up.  The grown ups can relax in the covered porch or the bar area while listening to toons from the surround sound system.  After a 2nd round of swimming and BBQ dinner the kids can go set 200_lupine_valley_dk7up a tent on the side of the home and have a slumber party while camping on your property.  Armed with walkie talkies relax on the master balcony looking at the stars and sipping a robust glass of wine.  Dear reader, memories like these last a life time.

Redwood Pavilion

Imagine coming home after a bone crushing day at work to your own private retreat. The drive through lavish estates and redwood trees you start to wind down as you slowly relax in the swaying curves of the country road as buildings and traffic fade away.  As the gate opens to the private drive you begin to smell the rich forest musk.  Crawling in from the emails and phone calls you can go upstairs and get into something more comfy and then soak in the hot tub that sits below the redwood trees and looks up to the blue sky.  Dry off by swinging in the hammock while you hear the birds chirp and the squirrels scamper along the forest floor.

Welcome to Sylvester Lane.  If you are not familiar with the west pocket of Santa Cruz county known a Bonny Doon, it is the “sweet spot” of over 30 ridge tops that host some of the rarest land in the world and trails for world renowned hiking and biking.  Many large estates are peppered through the madrones, pines, and redwoods.  Some of the most expensive estates in the county are located n Bonny Doon. The drawback is that many of the estates are very large with current “for sale” price in excess of $2 million and reaching $15 million.

Three bedrooms, including the master, make up the 2300 sq. ft. space.  With large angles beds, shelves fit in each of these rooms.  If you have older relatives who cannot do stairs you can accommodate them on one of the 2 bedrooms downstairs.  This space makes for great kids rooms. The master suite offers 2 advantages.  It is upstairs and opens to the large pie shaped skylights, living room and dining room and hosts a large master bath with allows you to have your own space.  The 2nd advantage is that is an office with a built in desk where you can peacefully plan your fund raisers at Waldorff school down the street, balance the home budget, or Skype a conference call in your pjs at 5:00 am in the morning.

Thousands of dollars of upgrades will leave you stunned on how big and clean a dome can feel while having modern appliances.  There are many double pane windows, Kohler plumbing fixtures, updated kitchen appliances, paint, patio, and not to over looked a redwood pavilion that sits at the front of the many walking trails on the property. If there are young children in your immediate or extended family, do you have any idea how excited they would get if you made a big deal of taking them hiking and camping for the first time…on your own land!  The expedition could start on the deck where you organize all the gear- a small tent, canteen, compass, some snack and most
