Hidden in Plain Sight: Winner Takes All with this Updated Lafayette Contemporary View Home Located Steps From the Lafayette Trail
April 7, 2015
Imagine enjoying a personal view of Mt. Diablo and Lafayette ridge lines from your home as you put on your cross-trainers to jog the Lafayette-Moraga trail, starting just a few steps away! That may sound improbable – maybe even impossible – but it’s not!
When searching to buy a home in Lafayette, it is easy to understand why some people feel they have to make early choices among Lafayette’s lifestyle amenities: Close to the trail, commanding views, easy access to downtown Lafayette and/or commuter convenience – pick two!
One of the things we love best about our new listing at 2 Roxanne Lane is that this Lafayette home has it all, including 280-degree views of Mt. Diablo and the Lafayette ridgeline. All this, plus 3615 sq. ft. +/- of interior living space.
What’s fun is that this home is hidden in plain sight, offering the added bonus of privacy. Accessed off Beechwood Drive, near the Olympic Blvd. trailhead, you’ve likely never seen this home unless you happen to be friends of the owners.
Built in 1980 by custom builder Ray Lehmcuhl, then a Lafayette resident, 2 Roxanne Lane is a beautiful Lafayette contemporary home that takes full advantage of its serene oak-studded, private-lane setting and commanding views. Of the 7 homes Lehmcuhl built on Roxanne, this is the one he and his wife decided to move into. Lovely and modern when built, it has been updated since, and is now being sold by its 3rd owner.
If you’ve never toured 2 Roxanne Lane, you are in for a treat!
The open house is Sunday, April 12, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Please budget extra time. There is a lot to enjoy, starting with the Koi pond and other beautiful features of the professionally landscaped front entrance patio.
Offering a spacious, light-filled, modern layout that includes expansive decks, this home includes well-considered spaces perfect for both entertaining and daily use, including excellent transitions from inside to outside.
More recent updates include the chef’s kitchen and a built-in BBQ incorporated into the adjoining breakfast room. Both the breakfast room and the family room open to the large view deck at the back of the house, just one example of the excellent way this home flows for entertaining.
The master suite is a true retreat off the main floor, with private sitting area, updated en suite bathroom and a private deck with a gated hot tub.
Situated on a beautiful, wooded .62 +/- acre lot, this home has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths in the main house, and 1 bedroom / 1 bathroom in a downstairs apartment located near the secondary bedrooms. The apartment has a full kitchen and can be accessed from the secondary bedroom hallway as well as a separate exterior entrance, providing the ultimate flexibility for how you’ll use this space through the years as needs change.
