Historic Beach Home for Sale in Capitola CA This is a classic home! It's for sale in the Jewel Box of Capitola over looking all of Capitola. It's on MLS for $7,995,000! It's one of a kind sitting on a 1/2 acres on the corner of Prospect Avenue. I walked through this home when a lady named Molly Lent lived there she told all us Realtors that she was never selling. It sold on 6/7/2001 for $2,600,000. The upstair pine floors were dangerous to walk on and you could not even go in the water tower. These owners took and recreated the home and the water tower and took 5 years to construct. It was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright Design taking in the expandsive Ocean View! When I walked in this home today it took my breath away!  The Jewel Box is a neighborhood of homes on streets named Topaz,Rub...
