Tucked away in the redwoods near downtown Felton, the lovely veranda of this historical home peeks out from between the trees, a charming visage surrounded by the lush landscape. Built in 1865 and coined the Bennett House, high ceilings and hardwood floors welcome you as you step into the foyer. The bright living room has a cozy fireplace and french doors to the back deck. The kitchen is a perfect marriage of vintage charm and modern amenities, with lovely cabinets and tile countertops. The dining room is fit for hosting guests for an elegant dinner, with plenty of room for visitors to pull up a chair. An ornate handrail leads up to the bedrooms, two sizable bedrooms for housing guests or converting into an office, and a large primary bedroom with a built-in closet and french doors out to a private balcony. The 6-car horseshoe driveway, with plenty of space for oversized vehicles, leads to a single-car garage that can be used as storage or a workshop. Downtown Felton is a minute away with boutique shopping, delicious restaurants, and a weekly farmers market with fresh groceries during summer. With easy access to Hwy 9, downtown Santa Cruz and beautiful beaches are a quick trip away; while right across the street, the Fall Creek Unit of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park has hiking, biking, and majestic scenic views.
