Realtor.com states that the average home price in Santa Cruz, California is $699,000. That’s a lot of money for a place to lay your head! Of course, Santa Cruz is a beach-side paradise just south of San Francisco, a city with a housing shortage of epic proportions, so it makes sense that home prices reflect that. If you want to live in paradise, you’re gonna have to pay paradise prices.

These aren’t your average mobile homes in West Virginia – these homes are often professionally decorated and expertly remodeled for well-to-do families that put precedence on location.

No, this mobile home isn’t perfectly remodeled. In fact, it’s about as original as you can find these days, but it is a great example of the beauty and workmanship of the early 1960’s mobile homes.

The late 1950’s and early 1960’s was the Golden Era of mobile home design and this home tells why. The wood was real, the hinges were metal, and the style was perfect.

    The wood ceilings are beautiful and I like the funky retro vibe of the home. I love the outdoor space, no grass to take care of yet there’s plenty of little garden areas to putter around in. Then you can spend the rest of your day enjoying the sunshine on the patio area.
