This award winning Mediterranean was re-built in 2011 by local builder, Mark Bohon. This inviting architectural style is characterized by the red tile roof, crisp white stucco exterior, oversized French Blue windows and French doors, reclaimed wood window sills and custom milled rafter tails, antiqued mahogany front door, and expansive, tiled terraces and pavilion. The wonderful marriage between recycled materials, open and airy living spaces, and phenomenal Mt. Diablo and Las Trampas Ridge views evokes a sense of harmony and balance difficult to find in today’s fast paced world.
The interior boasts exceptional fit and finish with plaster walls, recycled wood, organic materials, built-in niche cabinetry, custom inset cabinetry, recessed lighting and dark hardwood floors. The chef’s kitchen is complete with marble counters, an oversized island with walnut top, professional-grade stainless appliances and a white, hand-cut, subway-tile backsplash. The light-filled great room is anchored with a brick fireplace with beam mantel, and features wonderful natural light and views through oversized windows. The dining room is sized to accommodate formal or informal meals and gatherings. The upper level of the home also houses the master retreat and a secondary bedroom and bathroom. The lower level houses a fantastic oversized second family room, two secondary bedrooms that share the hall bath, laundry room, storage room and wine cellar.
The 1± acre serene setting offers unforgettable views, mature landscape, expansive level lawn, covered outdoor pavilion with rustic beam-ceiling and stucco seating (designed for outdoor dining), wrap-around upper terrace (designed for outdoor entertaining) and multiple points of interior access including the family room, living room, kitchen and master bedroom. Additional highlights include two driveways (with ample off-street parking) and the ideal canvas to create your own Mediterranean gardens complete with pool, vineyard and bocce ball court. (The sellers are happy to share the pool renderings they had created).
Conveniently located minutes from Hwy 24, BART, town and highly acclaimed Orinda and Acalanes Unified School District schools, this home offers the best of city living in a peaceful location.
