Love where you live!
Tucked at the end of a cul-de-sac, and down a private driveway, sits this gorgeous Lafayette home that was built to perfection from the ground up in 2013. The location of this home is desirable for close proximity to Layayette’s Springhill Elementary School, Acalanes High School, and the Lafayette Ridge open space hiking area. In addition to the scenic setting, the location affords an exceptional commute location, with the freeway, BART station, and the town center just minutes away.
A dramatic entrance with a 10-foot ceilings ushers you into the 3,263+/- square foot single level floor plan with the classical elegance of wainscoting, double crown moldings, and richly crafted Hickory hardwood floors. The generously sized office (or living room) and formal dining room are immediately in view, seamlessly flowing to the expansive Great Room and chef’s kitchen with dual fuel cooktops, dual ovens, and island seating. The heart of the home reflects the keen attention to detail that one would expect in a home of this caliber. Sliding glass doors lead out to the large level backyard with its beautiful paver patio wrapped by expansive lawn and views of the hills above.
Hardwood floors lead into the sumptuous master suite with its beautiful double crown moldings wrapping the ceilings and a stunning gas fireplace with hearth and mantle. The richly appointed master bath features Alder cabinets, a dual sink vanity topped with Porto Beige Limestone countertops, a soaking tub, and a large walk-in shower. Three large secondary bedrooms are found within the home’s private living area. One of the bedrooms features an en suite full bath with a large walk-in shower, and the other two bedrooms share a “Jack and Jill” bath that has a tub/shower design.
This charming home offers the perfect blend of formal and casual living space, privacy, large bedrooms, and an amazing yard with patio, large grass, and play area. The seamless indoor/outdoor living makes it a true entertainer’s delight; this home exudes California Living!
Additional Highlights Include:
Low on density and high on greenery, Lafayette offers rolling hillsides, excellent schools, and an easy commute to Oakland and San Francisco thanks to the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station in the town center. The Happy Valley area features meandering country roads and showplace estate homes perched on large hillside parcels that offer panoramic views of the valley. Mediterranean, English, and French Country architecture populate the landscaped neighborhoods. Lafayette’s central business district offers quality shopping and dining for locals and visitors alike. Restaurants such as Artisan Bistro, Chevalier, and Metro Lafayette are thriving. For those seeking old-fashioned comfort food, Millie’s Kitchen is a popular breakfast and brunch restaurant with large portions and modest prices. Lafayette Reservoir is open year-round for boating, fishing, picnicking, and hiking. After a long day on the water, locals head to The Roundup Saloon, a throwback to the days of rowdy roadhouses.
