Find precious peace and quiet in this custom built 3BR/3BA 2,175 square foot home built on just under 5 acres in sought-after Happy Valley. Set in a sunny clearing with commanding views over the treetops toward the silhouettes of the surrounding ridge lines. Soaring vaulted ceilings and walls of windows and sliding glass doors infuse the home with natural light and show off gleaming hardwood floors and an open and generous floor plan. A large deck wraps around most of the house and creates multiple outdoor spaces that capture views, sun or shade during all times of the day. Vestiges of rural living from past owners include an old barn overlooking a partially fenced pasture, and the site of an old tennis court that would make the perfect spot for a gopher-proof raised bed garden or an updated sports court. Far from the maddening crowd but close to the commute and within minutes to Scotts Valley or Santa Cruz in this close-in country charmer in the top-tier Happy Valley School District.
