Many homebuyers would love to build their dream home in the Santa Cruz mountains - especially one with ocean views and easy access to everything the mountains and nearby beaches have to offer! The biggest obstacle is the dread of dealing with the stringent planning and environmental requirements. Normally, it could take years of constant effort and expense before approval is granted. The good news is that this property has everything ready to go. Accessed by a paved road, 12 minutes from Highway 17, you can start building almost immediately, as environmental clearances have already been granted. To make things even easier, underground utilities, a productive well, storage tank, large engineered retaining wall, septic permit, and the foundation for a 6,000+ square foot home are already in place! This invaluable head start on a 5 bedroom home with garage and guest unit, looking out to Monterey Bay, is extremely rare. Get ready for that nearly impossible dream come true!
