California developer City Ventures is bringing its brand of “green key” all-electric homes to the ever-popular city of Santa Cruz. But aside from its famous boardwalk, the Santa Cruz area has so much more to offer homebuyers in search of an inspired destination to lay down roots.
City Ventures’ new single-family home community, Beachwood, continues the developer’s tradition of building quality eco-friendly homes for the same price as “regular” less energy-efficient homes. Every home in the Beachwood community is a solar all-electric powered “smart home,” so there is no gas bill. ENERGY STAR appliances help keep monthly utility bills low.
Homes vary in size from 2,360 square feet to 2,773 square feet, with up to four-bedroom and four-bathroom layouts. Private side yards, porches and paseos give homeowners their own patch of outdoor space to relax and enjoy.
Residents will have the famous beach and boardwalk nearby, as well as vibrant downtown Santa Cruz. The area boasts several farm-to-table restaurants, wineries and craft breweries for a uniquely local experience for your palette. Music lovers will enjoy taking in a myriad of festivals at the nearby wharf.
The beach also plays host to the Maverick Big Wave surf competition, and film buffs will instantly recognize the Beach Boardwalk from “The Lost Boys.”
The area’s best hiking and mountain bike trails await in The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park.
Sales for available homes start from the low $1 millions.
