Enter a Beautiful Woodland Cottage – Its Interior Is Shockingly Spacious
Here is a move-in ready home in a great location of the Santa Cruz Valley in California. The home design is on the smaller side, but the price is so affordable for California at $420,000 US. Plus the home design is gorgeous and so well done. The home was built in 1953 and is 583 square feet in total on a 1,916 square foot lot. Outside, the home has a very welcoming appearance, surrounded by trees and a large deck, with a cheery bright orange door and blue siding. They finished the roof with cedar shakes which definitely gives it a cabin in the woods vibe. Through the french doors on the side of the house, is the living room area, where you can see the lovely open floor plan and beautiful flooring. If you want to buy a home, nothing could be better than purchasing a move in ready home like this one that has been seriously updated throughout. As the real estate website says, "This is a once in a lifetime opportunity", they are so right about that.
In any small space, you need to use the space wisely, which was clearly done with this home design and remodel. There are so many stylish upgrades in this design, including the bright kitchen complete with clean, white cabinetry, butcher board counter tops, and a farmhouse style sink. They even installed stainless steel appliances, an induction range oven, a dishwasher, a compact washer and dryer, and even a wood burning fireplace. That's a lot of upgrades, and they don't just stop there, there's also a brand new tankless water heater, LED Lutron lights, the Pergo MAX flooring, a wifi and motion sensor ceiling fan, an energy efficient heating and cooling system, and so much more. There's even a brand new bathroom, with a huge glassed in shower, tiled with marble tiling, and an efficient toilet with a sink and vanity. To make the space feel even larger, skylights have been placed in the ceiling, and the ceilings have also been made taller which opens the entire home up. Lots of windows and the french doors make it possible for light to filter in through the trees making it a very bright little space. The use of light and bright colors as well as neutral colours also helps to keep the smaller space feel spacious and airy. So keep that in mind any time you're decorating a smaller space.
The bedroom can fit a queen sized bed in it, and there's a nice closet to fit a wardrobe as well. The bathroom is right off of the bedroom hidden behind a cool barn style door on a slider. On the other side of the bathroom is a nice office area with a desk and some shelving. Everything is kept very minimal which also helps to keep the space open and feeling larger. Having too much clutter can instantly make a space feel much smaller than it really is. There's also another door leading outside through the office as well. This would be the perfect little home for a couple just buying their first Californian home together. If you want to buy a home in California, this is a real gem, and would need no work done on it. You could just pack your stuff and move right in. Small house living is becoming more of a trend, not just because people can't afford the sky-high housing prices these days, but because people realize that less is sometimes more.
