Property Description

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; The home was originally designed as a single family home and could be turned back into its original layout with a formal living room, ballroom, billiards room, dining room, and kitchen on the main level with bedrooms on the 2nd floor, a 3rd story penthouse overlooking the ocean and the city, and a guest carriage house with workshop/storage.
