St. Deyns Avenue::Santa Cruz
A stylish contemporary couple with hectic careers and a growing family needed a place to retreat and relax with the kids. But with prime surf spots just a few steps away, this four bedroom, 3 1/2 bath, custom, contemporary farmhouse is ideal to bring in rental income for the savvy owners when they can't get away for the weekend.
Some very smart choices in this new construction, make the home as practical as it is beautiful, and durable enough to stand up to the climate, the kids, and the frequent lodgers. Outside, fiber-cement siding, composite lumber decking, wood-clad windows, and synthetic turf will insure low-maintenance and longevity. Reclaimed barn wood siding facing the front entrance wall, engineered whitewashed white oak flooring throughout, classic subway tiles, and stain- and chip-resistant Caesarstone countertops are a few of the economical, durable, and beautiful interior finishes. Subtle custom flourishes, like the warm brass of the knobs and pulls, or the repetition of the herringbone pattern in the fireplace and bathroom floor tiles, express the elegant, contemporary aesthetic of the homeowners.
