The Golden Gate Villa, Santa Cruz, CA 95060

The Crown Jewel of Santa Cruz

The Golden Gate Villa sits perfectly perched in the iconic Beach Hill neighborhood above the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk overlooking the Monterey Bay coastline and out across the city lights and sunsets over downtown Santa Cruz. Designed by Thomas Welsh in Queen Anne Victorian style built-in 1891 much of its original character is preserved to this day. One of the rooms is modeled after the Palace of Versailles with a pure Onyx-faced fireplace and gold-plated chandelier. There are 20 museum grade Tiffany quality stained glass windows throughout the house along with much attention to intricate details. Currently set up as a rental income property offering 10 Suites, 11.5 Bathrooms, including a penthouse overlooking the ocean and the city, and 1 bedroom guest carriage house with workshop area below. The house was originally built as a single family home with a living room, ballroom, billiards room, dining room and kitchen on the main level with bedrooms on the second floor and guest quarters on the top floor. There are beautifully landscaped grounds, ample off-street parking (10 spots), and a private path with access to downtown. It would be the perfect place for a grand estate, family compound, corporate housing, bed & breakfast, etc. An incredible opportunity to make this yours!
