First time on the market! Single level home located on the Upper Westside close to the Pogonip open space trails. A very desirable neighborhood a close distance to Westlake Park and the top-rated Westlake school district; not far from downtown Santa Cruz and Westside beaches. The home has a great floor plan layout with a separate living room with fireplace off the main entry. The family room with fireplace opens to the kitchen area and looks out onto the almost 1/4 acre private lot that has a covered porch, expansive patio, large in-ground pool, and fruit trees. Ideas abound with a possible place for an ADU or a deck off the master bedroom. In the back of the 2 car garage, opening to the patio off the pool is a workshop area but could make for a great cabana pool room, additional bonus room, an office, or exercise room. Recent updates include new engineered hardwood floors, fresh paint, new light fixtures and switches.
