Capitola Jewel Box Homes

The original area homes are small 2 bedroom 1 bath 850 square foot boxy single level cottages. I am guessing the "Jewel Box" was so named for the streets names, certainly not for these boxy often utilitarian homes that sprang up. The "Jewel Box" streets have names such as Opal, Garnet, Diamond, Ruby,Crystal, and Topaz.

While this is not all, it will give you an idea. In the 70's there was a development of condominiums called "Capitola Shores". They were built by a builder named, I believe, McKuen. They are all about the same size as the small homes and are either a townhouse style or condominium style. Closer to the village, the homes are larger and newer. This area is a great place for a senior to live as the homes are mostly one level, and shopping is nearby, as is the community center that the seniors use often.

This neighborhood has the local community center and a great park,Jade Street Park. Located adjacent to the soccer field are the community gardens. You need to sign up for them, but it is nice to have. Jade Street Park is a well used community park that has softball and soccer as well as approximately 6 tennis courts. There is also a kid's play area. This great park also houses the community gardens near the soccer field. The Jewel Box is a real treasure for local Capitola citizens.

Customer Reviews

"Are you looking for a place to purchase in Santa Cruz? Call Gregg. He is a true professional, and he makes you feel like you are his only client. He is available at the drop of a hat to show a property on your schedule, and his website is easy to use. My husband and I just purchased a condo in Santa Cruz with the help of Gregg. I do not have much experience with real estate, but I have a lot of experience with customer service. The attention we received from Gregg during this process was top-notch. He knows so much about everything pertaining to the housing market, the Santa Cruz County area real estate inventory, the pros and cons of the types of properties and the areas they are in. When looking at homes, he noticed and pointed out the flaws and the benefits for every property. He is personally acquainted with most realtors in town, which helps when showing homes. He followed up with us routinely, answered and returned every single call promptly, and made thorough and thoughtful recommendations. He made suggestions during the lending process that were so helpful. When we closed on our property, timing of our move was and issue, and Gregg offered his truck and other accommodations to help the transition. Gregg uses his experience to help a buyer every single step of the way. If you DO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION and call Gregg, listen and follow his advice through the process. YOU CAN TRUST he is acting for you and that he truly has your best interests in mind."
