This is one of the most unique, eclectic, properties in Santa Cruz. A true eco urban farm in the heart of Santa Cruz, walking distance to beach and town. The home is made from 2 authentic historic street cars. Greeting you is a huge oak tree with its own treehouse, 2 cob stuctures for office, work or play, a pond, clucking chickens, fruit trees galore, gardens, sauna, fire ring, cob oven, more!

Cob oven? Say no more!

The house isn’t terribly large, which is a good thing. Gandalf will be coming by any minute with an important mission statement for you. Meet at the Fire Ring.

    Up here in the RBA you can’t change a light fixture without a $139 permit. Then there is this.

    “historic street cars?” My guess: This place is made from school buses.

  3. Metalhead Says:

    Bonus – looks like the right setting for a miniature golf course. I think Santa Cruz could really benefit from this type of business.

    Awesome. Overpriced. But awesome.

    Why did they have to paint it like it’s a freakin’ pre-school?
