Enter the gated estate, proceed up the private drive, and enjoy the best view of Mt. Diablo that can be found anywhere in Lamorinda. You won’t want to leave the new 1,500-square-foot cedar deck, which offers spectacular views of the verdant grounds toward the mountain to the east. Enjoy morning coffee from the porch swing over the deck, or a glass of wine at dusk from the built-in spa. Flourishing trees – Monterey Pine, oak, Japanese Maple, and olive – surround the house, which offers windows in all directions to capture nature’s beauty.
The house is 3,555 square feet and offers 4 bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms. A separate cottage of 255 square feet, currently a yoga studio, could be reconfigured as an office or home gym. The oak-floored kitchen features marble counters, an island to maximize counter space, and Wolf, Thermador, and General Electric Monogram appliances. A breakfast atrium with glass ceiling adjoins, with windows overlooking the garden and maple trees. A spacious family room is adjacent to the breakfast nook. For more formal entertaining, the dining room is found on the other side of the kitchen, and it leads gracefully into another spacious family room with a fireplace. The master suite, which offers glass windows on all sides, is on the home’s first level down the hall from the kitchen. It offers an exceptionally large walk-in closet with built-in cabinetry, a huge shower, and a separate bathtub/spa. Another bedroom, with its own en-suite bath, completes the first floor. It has vaulted ceilings and its own adjacent family room/sitting area with fireplace and a wet bar, and the suite easily could be closed off and turned into a separate in-law unit. The second floor features two more spacious bedrooms (one with 270-degree views of hillsides and trees), a bathroom, and a room that could be configured to be a playroom, sitting room, or office.
