The lure of nature combined with the comfort and security of living in a gated community draws you to this very special Woods Cove home. Driving through the trellised gateway of this coveted community you’ll understand why it took over 10 years to refine and develop this private enclave of 60 homes, surrounded by acres and acres of majestic redwoods and oaks. It’s where you want to be, midway between Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley, just 10 minutes to the beach and 20 minutes to downtown Los Gatos. The home is as pristine as the area, with 4800 sq ft of gracious living space, resting on a sunny and peaceful ¾ acre parcel. Sun-drenched, south-facing rooms with tall ceilings showcase views in every direction, while French doors and patios provide an easy indoor/outdoor transition. Comfortable for large-scale entertaining, with upstairs and downstairs family room and den, generous formal and informal dining, tiled sun room or library, and living room with a 2-story ceiling that provides nice acoustics for the adjoining music room. Plus a cook’s kitchen with expansive granite counters and cherry cabinets, center island with generous seating, Subzero refrigerator and walk-in pantry. The master suite is a peaceful retreat, nicely separated from the other bedrooms, with generous master bath with shower and jetted tub, all creating a sense of space and elegance while maintaining a warm and relaxed feel. Other notable features include a sheltered courtyard entry, four fireplaces, closet organizers and plenty of built-ins, workspace alcove between the bedrooms, and an extra deep two-car garage with ample room for cars and projects. When it’s time to enjoy the outdoors, you have the natural beauty of this 32K+ sq ft parcel with a pristine meadow and majestic redwood grove, looking out across the San Lorenzo river valley, or nearby trails, the Pasatiempo Golf Course, and La Madrona swim and tennis club just a mile away. A very special property in a wonderful location.
