Nestled in the hills of Lafayette, this stunning contemporary showcases incredible indoor/outdoor appeal, stunning architectural harmony and craftsmanship as well as a flexible blend of public and private space.
Professionally renovated in 2005-6, by the Award-winning team of San Francisco's Kaplan Architects and Applegate Tran Interiors, the interior amenities are sure to impress! Featured in magazines and home design books, the kitchen/family great room offers a rare blend of casual living space with sophisticated fit and finish. The eat-in kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances, spacious work areas, artisan lighting and a walk-in pantry. The nearby family room features a floor-to-ceiling custom marble fireplace, a wonderful wall of custom built-ins (with copper wire mesh doors and lit display shelves), window seats and doors to the exterior deck. The current music/living room can easily be used as a formal dining room and includes a custom artisan-crafted fused and slumped glass light fixture. The main level also houses a powder room, junior suite, and second family room/office (also considered a bedroom) with fireplace and exterior access.
The lower level of the home features a master suite with dual expansive walk-in closets, sunken tub, dual vanities and beautiful exterior views. It also has two additional bedrooms (one is oversized and can be changed to a teen hangout, office or extra living space), and a full bathroom with attached laundry room. Additionally, the home has a 400+/- sq. ft. artist's studio (not included in the square footage) and two temperature-controlled, 1500+/- bottle wine cellars.
The private property is a wonderful extension of the home and is perfect for casual entertaining, gardening, relaxation, and play! Features include a gated front courtyard, level lawn, low-maintenance Trex decking, lower patio with basketball hoop, upper patio space and an outdoor kitchen with BBQ, sink and fridge. Crushed gravel paths meander through the mature landscaping, flower beds and a delightful orchard with 11 varieties of fruit trees.
Conveniently located minutes from downtown Lafayette and Walnut Creek, BART, Springbrook Pool, Lafayette Tennis Club and Briones Park and trails, the home is in the Top-ranked Acalanes and Lafayette School Districts, and a short distance to Springhill Elementary and Acalanes High School, and minutes from Stanley Intermediate.
