In the unique and eclectic Last Chance Rd. community, 688 Swanton Rd. presents an opportunity to buy in an area where properties rarely become available. The property is on Pine Mountain, off Last Chance road, in a chaparral environment, above the fog and the majestic redwood trees. Located 7 miles up a fire road, approximately 30 minutes from Highway 1. Once on Highway 1, it’s an easy 10-minute commute from the Westside of Santa Cruz and its grocery stores, cafes and award winning restaurants and breweries.
Just a few minutes in either direction on Highway 1 takes you to secluded, pristine beaches. Stop by Panther Beach on your way to Santa Cruz or go north to check out the elephant seals at Año Nuevo State Park.
Popular Humble Sea Brewing Company is a great place to enjoy a craft beer on the Westside of Santa Cruz, while Whale City Bakery is a relaxed roadside cafe just minutes south on Highway 1 in Davenport.
Just minutes from your house will be Big Basin State Park, California’s oldest state park. Hike through majestic old growth redwood trees on your way to Berry Falls and be on the lookout for Santa Cruz’s most famous slug, the Banana slug.
