Overview

About the property

3700 sqft retreat with 3bd, 2.5ba, library, pool, hot tub, and endless mtn views

Escape to the ultimate getaway at this 20 acres of Santa Cruz Mountain Top Estate with 360 degrees of beautiful views, fresh mountain air, and privacy and quietude, while enjoying luxurious amenities such as a pool, hot tub, fireplace, and wide open outdoor area for BBQ and games. At night, the sky comes alive with incredible views of stars unpolluted by city lights.

As you drive into the estate, you will pass under the cloak of Santa Cruz Mountains redwood forest and suddenly emerge into an open mountain top drenched in sunlight, and greeted by a 3700 sq. ft. stately home with magnificent unobstructed 360 degree nature views. Surrounded by endless mountains and forests, you'll leave behind the noise of cities and feel a million miles from the every-day.

The home has an airy living room with soaring cathedral ceilings to accommodate the largest of family gatherings, a fully provisioned kitchen, and a sunroom surrounded by windows and two spacious decks. On the decks, take a soak in the hot tub in total seclusion surrounded only by endless mountain and forest views; or fire up the grill, chill out in the loungers, and challenge friends and family to a game of billard, ping pong, or air hockey.

You can dine in the formal dining room or sip coffee while tucked into the 60’s style diner booth where the morning sun washes in. Upstairs there are three very large bedrooms each with cozy window nooks just beckoning for a good book. An oak-paneled library can also double as a fourth bedroom.

Outside, follow the winding private road down to the pool and lawn area where you dive into the delicious water, lounge by the pool, or play some basketball, volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, etc. Walk further down to a redwood grove, or hike or mountain bike up our private trails right behind the house that connect onwards to other ridge top trails for miles and miles among beautiful forests.

As dusk falls, stop and marvel as sunset paints over the endless folds of mountains and forests. Light up a cozy fire and entertain everyone by the piano (or the organ) the old fashioned way, or enjoy a unique treat and escape to the Arcades with our genuine pinball machine - the most popular pinball of all times: Medieval Madness!

Retreat from the frenetic bustle of Silicon Valley or the City via a mere 45 minutes drive from Silicon Valley or 1.5 hours from San Francisco. Let the wonderfully scenic road unfurl your mind and tune your mood for relaxation.

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! Beautiful views, great back porch, loaded with entertainment (games, pinball, hot tub) etc. Can't stress how convenient this place is for a weekend getaway from the Bay Area... it took less than an hour to arrive leaving at peak Friday traffic from the South Bay. The house is large and can fit numerous people comfortably. Kitchen is well stocked, the place was clean, and the location can't be beat. Amnon was very responsive throughout the process. Highly recommend.

solitude with fun and games

  • 5 of 5

My 9yo and 10yo had a great time enjoying the pool, badminton, hot tub, pinball machine, piano, chess set, pool table AND air hockey! We didn't even turn on the giant TV. We also appreciated the quietude and beautiful views. Everything worked perfectly, and the beds were exceptionally comfortable. The booth in the breakfast nook is a fun and comfortable touch. I did regret getting there after dark, as my phone led me astray and the roads are quite hard to follow - or turn around on - after dark.

Great for Family and/or Large Group

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything my group wanted. Plenty of kitchen space to cook and have a family style meal in the dining room. Everything was very clean and organized for us. The hot tub out on the deck is in the perfect location to also enjoy the amazing view from the house.

I highly recommend this property to anyone needing a house to comfortably fit a large group of people.

Nestled among the mixed evergreens and conifers, Eyrie was the perfect retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a birthday celebration in this beautiful home. My kids came from Boston, DC, Dallas, and SF to celebrate. There are too many things to say about what the delightful time we had.

Expected comforts:

Clean, open, airy rooms with great views

Large sitting areas for folks to sit around casually

Smaller areas to retreat to for some privacy or quiet

Outdoor sitting areas for taking in the beauty or enjoying a good soak

Great well-stocked kitchen (Don't forget to tap the faucet!)

Comfortable bedrooms with queen beds and good views

Window seats in bedrooms (great for napping!)

Easy access to Big Basin for great hiking

Peace and Quiet

Unexpected comforts and joys:

Medieval Madness pinball machine brought us back a few years!!

Piano and organ in living area had all of us practicing some of our favorites

Air hockey and pool table

A gentle fire in the fireplace provided a cozy backdrop to our Olympic viewing

A washer/dryer is always nice.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of four families, including four kids. Everyone had a great time. Amnon was very prompt in communication. The home is beautiful with lots of indoor activities - pool table, pinball, pianos, board games. We had BBQ on the deck - weather was perfect.

Highly recommended! We will surely come back!

Amazing house , perfect for our weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Wow , what a beautiful house ! We came for a bachelorette party of 11 women and the house had more than enough room for us. The deck off the back if the house is fantastic with a nice gazebo and hot tub that sits in the deck. Lets not forget the view , it is absolutely amazing. Amnon was more than accomodating and left us alone to enjoy our weekend. The drive up to the house is not for the faint of heart , very windy roads with blind turns , but it is 100% worth it ! If you plan to rent a limo like we did , there is a country club right down the road that we got picked up at since the limo would not make it up to the house.

If your looking for serenity , peace and quiet in a gorgeous house this is the place for you ! Absolutely would recommend this house for guests !
