A Modern-day treehouse tucked in the Aptos hills offering privacy & solitude with ocean & forest views. A sunny peaceful retreat near the end of a private road a short distance to town with terraced gardens, meandering paths, & multiple outdoor gathering places. A nature lover's paradise with multitudes of wildlife & a gardener's delight. This passive solar home is ideally positioned on the land to bring in warmth, natural light, & expansive views out to the Monterey Bay. A combination of space separation & flexibility of use with multi-levels still with a sense of openness created by oversized floor to ceiling windows in every room. The ground floor living room/office has potential direct access above to the bedroom, originally intended for a guest space. The updated kitchen connects to informal & formal dining & to a family room with a fireplace & an oceanview deck. The master bedroom suite has the potential to expand the bath & a dressing room off the walk-in closet which could be an office.
