4573 Branciforte Drive SANTA CRUZ CA 95065

$ 2,100,000

One-of-a-kind 12.8 acre estate on Branciforte Creek featuring the original 7 BR 4000+SF Mediterranean Villa “Casa de Montgomery” built in 1932, with attached guest unit plus an 8000+SF wing built in 1972 that added 17BR with commercial kitchen, dining hall, high ceilings & ADA hallways, totaling 13,955 SF, 26BR, 6 full baths+14 half baths. Includes preliminary plans & application to demo & rebuild as a 100-bed senior assisted living facility, however due to septic and budget constraints has been deemed more cost-effective to renovate the villa and re-design the 8000SF wing for a wide range of Level 5 Use possibilities such as school, religious or retreat center, or simply convert the second building for recreational use or storage, with renovation costs likely to run additional $2MM-$3MM on top of purchase. Main water source is 50 GPM well. Also includes deeded water rights to creek, plus 5 dry ponds from a now-defunct treatment system that can be repurposed as scenic water features.
