Original Judge Hamlin Estate

 

This 1941 Lafayette estate originally served as the cornerstone for what is now known as Sky Hy Ranch.  This custom, Spanish-style residence was originally built for Federal Judge O.D. Hamlin.  This historical property is truly unique for the area and features classical architectural design rarely found in Contra Costa County.

 

The main residence is comprised of a 3 bedroom + executive study/3 bath, 3151 sq. ft. one story main house plus an attached 1 bedroom/1 bath, 292 sq. ft. guest house and a 2 bedroom/.5 bath, 375 sq. ft. cabana, all connected by covered esplanade.  The rare, extremely large, flat lot on the top of a hill boasts extensive gardens and a pool as well as hilltop views of Lafayette.

 

Interior features of the main home include a grand living room with open-beamed ceiling and a stunning floor to ceiling progressively stacked brick fireplace, beautiful dark hardwood floors and amazing natural light through French doors and picture windows. Nearby, the octagonal executive library has a fireplace, built-in shelving and desk, and true wet bar. The expansive formal dining room attaches to a spacious kitchen, which includes a breakfast nook and walk-in pantry.  The master retreat encompasses a walk-in closet, along with a separate changing room and closet, and bath with stall shower and tub.  The two additional, large bedrooms each feature en suite full bathrooms, one with attached sitting room. 

 

Located down a large private driveway, the property is quiet and set apart from neighbors. Exterior highlights include a covered dining patio with fireplace, large entertaining deck off kitchen with bench seating, meandering paths throughenchanting gardens, mature Redwood and Magnolia trees, level lawn and pool. A Spanish tile roof complements the impressive exterior.  In addition, there is an oversized 3-car garage with two attached storage/work rooms. 

 

Sky Hy Ranch is a private gated community of 29 homes surrounded by rolling hills and grazing cattle. The neighborhood is known for its pristine setting, picture-perfect views, community greenbelt and mini-park.  Conveniently located minutes from both downtown Lafayette and Rheem, it has easy access to shops, restaurants and commute routes, and feeds to award-winning Lafayette Elementary School, Stanley Middle School and Campolindo High School.
