The southernmost town in San Lorenzo Valley, Felton lies at a slightly lower elevation than its neighbors to the north and is only around five minutes west of Scotts Valley. Felton homes come in a wide range of architectural styles and sizes, from cozy historic cottages to expansive contemporaries, providing homebuyers with a wide array of choices.
An idyllic community in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Felton is in a region that's largely defined by its many state and county parks. Much of the land here has been set aside for preservation and the parks nearest Felton homes are the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, the Quail Hollow Ranch County Park and, lying a bit further to the north, the Big Basin Redwoods State Park. This is why, despite its proximity to Silicon Valley and Santa Cruz, Felton and its neighboring areas have long maintained their rural atmosphere.
Felton homes are strewn over a landscape of hills blanketed with oaks, madrones, and towering redwood forests. The San Lorenzo River meanders through town, giving some properties unbeatable riverfront views. Also cutting across town is Highway 9, which connects Felton to the rest of the valley and to Santa Cruz to the south. The highway also serves as Felton's main street and is where you'll find its eclectic collection of shops, restaurants and services.
