It is a historic home and most recently lived in and lovingly cared for by Anne Bucher who lived there for 48 years. Anne was a artist and she was given this home by her husband William Bucher in 1967 as a Mother’s Day gift.
Anne Bucher was an artist and she had one of the most beautiful gardens on display for everyone that walked by on their way to the Capitola Beach to enjoy.
William Bucher was a house painter and as the story goes when they first owned it the entire complex was painted beige. They went to the Bermuda on a vacation and when they came homes they had a bright idea that is would be really fun to paint their condo a Bermuda pink like they saw on vacation.
The neighbor’s started doing the same and the trend has lasted for decades and made theVenetian Court an icon.
The Venetian court were originally built by a man named Henry Allen Rispin in the early 1920’s. He was a Canadian oil millionaire who bought up all of Capitola with the idea to develop it and model it after Venice Italy.
The way the Capitola is situated on the mouth of the Soquel Creek as it makes it’s way to the ocean into the Monterey Bay Sanctuary is ideal. I love the bright colors that look like Italian waterfront living. the history of all this about the City of Capitola is pictured and explained her at the Capitola Museum

Prospect Ave in the Jewel Box
This home sold for $6,500,000 in April 2016. I remember when it was owned by a lady and she had lived there for a long time and always told all the Realtors® in town that she was never going to sell it. So she didn’t and she past away and then it was rebuilt and sold.
The home is on a half acre of land over looking the Capitola Village and the ocean. The deck on the ocean side is spectacular views and sounds of the beach, the music on the wharf, the waves breaking on the beach and you can see all the way across the bay to Moss Landing and Monterey.
It was rebuilt with a similar design keeping the water tower that had a water tank into that they used for water before the city had a water supply.
This home sits on a half acre corner lot in the Jewel Box in Capitola.
