Historic Ocean View Ave Victorian Extensively Renovated

Historic Ocean View Ave grand Victorian built in 1880 with old-growth redwood by GDV Delameter, former mayor of Santa Cruz. Owned & well-cared for by only 3 families, it retains many of its unique original features such as high ceilings with medallions & plaster crown moldings, pocket doors, fireplace mantel, redwood & fir wainscoting with many chandeliers. An extensive renovation was recently completed, updating the floor plan & functionality to modern living. Some new features include a newer roof, gutters, windows, electric, plumbing, and insulation
At the main entrance of the home are an enclosed sun porch, library, formal living & dining room. The dining room has wainscoting and pocket doors made of redwood and fir with the original crystal chandelier (also in the library, living room, and primary bedroom). Beautiful white oak herringbone flooring is found throughout the main two floors. Custom wallpapers adorn the dining room, half bath, and upstairs hall ceiling.  Farrow and Ball paint has been used throughout.
The new kitchen has Calacatta marble counters & backsplash, a 6ft double-oven La Cornue range, custom Venetian plaster hood, 5 x 16-foot walnut island, 2 Miele dishwashers, large column Gaggenau refrigerator & freezer, DeVol faucet & copper sink, walk-in pantry, walnut & alder custom cabinets with custom lighting. The adjoining seating area has a matching marble gas fireplace & in-kitchen eating nook with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. In-ceiling speakers are discreetly placed in the ceiling of the great room. 
A ground floor bedroom suite, half bath & office can also be found off the kitchen area.
On the second floor, 5 bedrooms can be found; with 2 suites including the primary bedroom suite.  The primary bathroom suite has a double-headed marble shower and double marble vanity with a soaking tub and a walk-in closet with custom cabinetry. All 5 1/2 bathrooms are new with high-end fixtures and custom tile.
A custom oak spiral staircase leads from the second floor to the finished attic which has been completely transformed into a light & bright entertainment room with many windows and skylights.
In addition, there is a 1400+ sq ft 2 bedroom additional unit below the main entry floor of the home. It has its own kitchen, bathroom, washer & dryer hookups with one interior entrance and three exterior entrances. Perfect to use in addition to the main home or to have for guests or a rental. This unit contains a technology closet with Poe UniFi wifi network for the property. Adjacent to the additional unit is a separate room used as a gym but could be a great space for extra storage or a wine cellar room.
The entire lot has just been landscaped with bluestone walkways, a retaining wall, comprehensive drainage and irrigation, a hot tub, decorative spot lighting, a fountain, fire pit, and a variety of drought-resistant plantings.  A side deck is conveniently located near the kitchen for grilling and al fresco dining.  An enclosed front porch is a perfect perch reading, napping, or sunset cocktails.
