Holy City is for Sale!

January 16, 2013

Holy City lies about 10 miles south of downtown Los Gatos in the Santa Cruz Mountains along the Old Santa Cruz Highway.  It has a colorful past and at one time was a frequent tourist stop on the way to the coast, but when Highway 17 went in, the area was bypassed and today is mostly a ghost town.

House on 12 acres within Holy City

With 142 lush and scenic acres, 11 distinct parcels, a house and a glass shop, a running creek, tall redwoods and wide meadows, the area has more than just a little potential – and all of it is for sale.  The parcels range from 1/2 acre to 52 acres in size.  The house sits on 12 acres.  Ducky Grabill, a Realtor in my office, has listed this beautiful and unique property.  It is offered at $7,500,000.
