"Very Nice and Residential"

While modesty is key in Santa Cruz real estate, Chestnut Street certainly houses some nicer homes and condos. The beach is within walking distance as is downtown, and there is a park that is even closer. All of the houses on the southern part of the street are condo-style, which means consistency and cleanliness but far less privacy.

Certainly the biggest benefit of this street is the location, but its simplicity could be a draw for singles, couples, beach lovers of all shapes and sizes and even retirees. It is relatively quiet for being so close to so many things (except for the extension up north) and is certainly a viable, appealing Santa Cruz option.
