"Great Place to Live..."

It doesn't get much prettier, or more quintessential Northern California, than Sunset Terrace. With proximity to San Francisco and Santa Cruz right around the corner, Scotts Valley is a great suburban town to live in. The views off of the hill into the valley are absolutely stunning. While the road winds up into the hills a bit, the drive is manageable and not tortuous at all. The neighbors are friendly and the homes are spacious. The redwoods add some great shade, without making the residents feel as if they are completely blocked from the sun.

Like many homes in California, the houses are extraordinarily close together, especially given the cost to live here - which is extremely expensive. Parking is also somewhat limited in these tight quarters.

The neighborhood is quiet at night and a bit far from downtown Santa Cruz (at least too far to walk), but this is an unbelievable place to raise a family - as long as you can afford it!
