Santa Cruz Mountains

While many of the mountain communities in the Bay Area have low inventory and high prices, the unique towns of Boulder Creek and Felton offer abundant options at affordable prices for first time home buyers. These small but vibrant communities are perfect for the nature lover who wants the seclusion of the mountains with a reasonable 45 minute commute to Silicon Valley. Downtown Boulder Creek and Felton have abundant options for shopping, dining and other practical needs. A 20 minute drive to the beach and 15 minutes to downtown Santa Cruz make these areas the epitome of the “best of both worlds.”
