This Banana Belt Beach Cottage may have a small footprint, but you'll be shocked by the big personality oozing with adorable character, and an even bigger backyard. Downsize on distractions once you move into this 440 square foot home, where the light color palette and generous windows maximize every square inch of space. Completely refinished with fresh paint inside and out, new flooring, and updated light fixtures, you can move in and lay back. The backyard is the true hero of this narrative. Set on nearly 1/4 acre of flat land, you already have a beautiful brick patio, grassy area, and a salsa garden. That leaves plenty of room for a pool, basketball court, a she shed/backyard office, or expanding the existing structure into your dream home (if you love distractions and all that). You're also walking distance to Arana Gulch, the Harbor, and everything in Midtown! Simplify and center your life, get outside, or build your dream home in this sunny patch of Santa Cruz!
