Features

Experience family life on one of the most popular side courts in Orinda Downs known for the attractive enclave of lovely family homes. The very well-maintained English country home of 4856 square feet has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths with a classic California style designed by architect Patrick Anders.

The functional floor plan, large rooms with high ceilings and numerous custom enhancements make this property come alive from its deluxe Chef’s kitchen (stainless steel appliances, granite counters, a central island and plenty of fine white wood cabinetry) to the adjoining family room with views of the gorgeous back yard, lawn and pool. Off the grand foyer are formal living and dining rooms that set the tone and functionality of the home for entertaining.  This is an exquisitely detailed home with symmetry and balance built by master local builder Gordon French Construction providing comfortable living areas and sophisticated entertaining spaces everywhere the eye might look!  It features an abundance of ‘true divided light dual pane windows and French patio doors that add light-filled spaces within a palette of neutral colors and a designer’s sense of style (custom built-ins, hardwood floors, quality artisan wood moldings/trims and craftsmanship). The slate roof and copper gutters are seldom found in new construction and add a sense of quality composition along with the wainscoting, frieze work and custom mantel pieces. The main rooms enjoy audio-wired speakers and recessed lighting.

The main floor bedroom is a room perfect for an office, nanny or guests with nearby full bath. The stairway from the central foyer leads to a special master retreat with exquisite spa-like bath with beautiful tile, dual vanity and oversized shower. The master bedroom’s French doors open to a sitting area overlooking the back yard. The well-scaled bedroom spaces encircle the master floor with each having their own en-suite deluxe bathrooms.

Towering native trees and mature, professionally-designed and lighted landscaping grace the generous .55 acre site providing nature at your doorstep with patios and lawns as well as incredible privacy and solitude (found directly off the main living areas). A child-safe covered sun-splashed sparkling swimming pool with spa add to the recreational theme of this park-like setting designed for relaxation, eating, kids play and entertaining.  This is California luxury living at its best with the appealing secure and gated grounds (with security system), a three-car attached garage and excellent storage areas. The lush, extraordinary setting and the appeal of living in the Downs offers the ultimate fun in the sun paradise as well as quick access to Orinda or Lafayette, commute and top-rated schools.
