435 Locust St, Santa Cruz
B uilt in 1888, this is a side by side Stick-Eastlake "Twin Sisters" designed by famed architect Daniel Damkroger. The Historic Registry has protected the authenticity of the exterior. On the interior, many of the original moldings and finishes remain in place. The grand pocket doors separating the original living and dining rooms slide effortlessly, unlike pocket doors of today. Tall base boards, coved ceilings, lath and plaster finishes and the detailing throughout all speak to the home's elegant pedigree. Over the years it has come to function as a duplex, but would certainly benefit from a return to its glamorous roots.The 1,116' house has 2 BR, 2 BA with immense storage space in the sprawling basement and in the spacious attic. The 4,008' lot has many fruit trees and a back yard with great potential for a garden and seating area. The location is awesome.
