A lovely duplex situated at the end of a cul-de-sac in the sunny Seabright neighborhood, its easy to forget you’re in a city, when you can hear the waves and sea-lions barking from the front patio. At night you'll be surrounded by a star-studded sky, in a super quiet and safe location. Built in 1928 and fully modernized, this retreat is a stylish and fun light filled space. Walk to the beach (0.7 mi), Harbor (0.5) Boardwalk (1.1), downtown (1.5) , Rio Theater (0.5), UCSC (3) and so much more.
