Welcome to Lafayette, a sought-after community known for its historic downtown, top-ranked schools, and its natural beauty.
Surrounded by mature trees sitting on a private drive, this home offers easy access to the pristine Briones Regional Park, Blue Oak Trail and the Lafayette Reservoir Recreational Area. The secluded peaceful setting is enhanced by the fact the home is just minutes from downtown Lafayette and its many options for shopping and dining, as well as a short drive from Walnut Creek, the BART station, and local freeways.
Situated on an almost one-acre lot, backing to a secluded hillside makes this property like your own private sanctuary. The residence includes a sunny interior with a main floor primary suite, two detached garages, and a guest house with a skylight, a full bath, and a kitchenette. The guest house is located over one of two, 2-car detached garages. An upper garage is very spacious and can also be used as a large workshop for tool enthusiasts.
Two driveways allow for convenient access to the property, which was owned by a former builder/contractor and refined with meticulous attention to detail. Multiple decks and patios provide a seamless indoor/outdoor living experience, creating numerous opportunities to watch visiting wildlife or just relax outside with friends. The separate dining room has a floor-to-ceiling bay window with views of the outdoor living areas; the expansive living room has a fireplace and ample room for entertaining.
The property boasts four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms in the main house while the second dwelling offers a studio plus a full bathroom for a total measured space of 2,733 square feet, making it ideal for buyers who require multiple living quarters. It enjoyed multiple renovations through the years to become the incredible home it is today. It includes many of the features that make this older home special, such as glass doorknobs, crown moldings, and solid wood interior doors. The updated kitchen is open to a large dining area/breakfast room and illuminated by multiple skylights. Features include exposed beam ceilings, a butcher block center island, a gas range, and granite countertops.
Equally appealing, the main floor primary bedroom includes an en suite bathroom, a walk-in closet, and glass doors that open to a private deck. Two bedrooms upstairs are spacious, one offering a large sitting area; the additional bedrooms make the home perfect for working remotely. The bonus dwelling/guest unit above the main garage makes a perfect setup for multi-generational living and or a private office.
With the potential to subdivide this oversized lot, two functional dwellings, and ample room to roam, along with a tranquil setting in the Reliez Valley that also affords convenient access to everything Lafayette has to offer, this is the definition of a one-of-a-kind rare opportunity.
This secluded, well-located property can be yours, but we suggest not waiting too long. To direct your questions and or schedule a private showing, please call your agent or our team today at 925-784-2524.
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.
