This Spanish-style estate, surrounded by mature oaks and redwoods, rests on 4.6 acres and commands impressive views of verdant Happy Valley hillsides and Mt. Diablo.
Outdoor entertainment possibilities are endless. The back yard features a pool (overseeing the hillsides across the canyon), flat lawn, firepit, fireplace, hot tub, rose gardens, and covered dining area.
Inside, the home is large and airy. Enter through double doors on the main level into a spacious Spanish-tile foyer under an elevated ceiling. Graceful archways lead into the huge (405 square feet) living room to the right, which features vaulted, beamed ceilings and oversized windows to capture striking views. Another archway to the left of the foyer leads to the formal dining room (under its own elevated ceiling), which seats 10-12. The kitchen is adjacent, with ample counter space and an island. Kitchen cabinetry is newly painted, and the appliances are top-notch (Dacor, Sub-Zero and Viking). A breakfast nook sits alongside, with views of the back patio. A large family room under beamed ceilings is centrally located on the main floor. Four spacious bedrooms (ranging in size from 234 square feet to 288 square feet), all with spacious closets and most with en-suite bathrooms, also are found on the main floor, each with striking views of oaks and hillsides. The principal suite has two spacious, walk-in closets, and the suite’s bathroom features a new shower, dual sinks, and stand-alone tub. The first of two comfortable offices completes the main floor.
Gracious tiled stairways with distinctive custom railings lead up and down to additional rooms. Upstairs, another family/game room offers plenty of space for entertainment and play. Downstairs lies a fifth bedroom with a large, walk-in closet, as well as a 342-square-foot office (with accompanying patio). A spacious, insulated area sits adjacent, which could be used for storage or configured as a wine cellar.
A breezeway leads from the front motor court into the parking area. Two garages accommodate three cars, and an adjoining carport can accommodate two more. A well-appointed gym alongside offers elevated ceilings and space for five or more people to work out simultaneously.
