Tucked in the heart of Happy Valley, down a long, gated driveway, sits this beautifully renovated and private retreat. Dream living spaces, impeccable design, clean lines, and high-end finishes combine with phenomenal indoor/outdoor flow and relaxing bedroom retreats (including an au pair/in-law possibility) to create this unparalleled Lafayette residence.
The exterior grounds flourish year-round and provide an ever-changing backdrop of mature trees and lush landscaping that is sure to delight all ages. Enjoy outdoor living at its finest with an expansive Blue Stone entertaining patio, gas fire pit, rectangular (covered) pool, spa, level lawns, impressive rose garden, amazing stone vegetable beds and cutting gardens.
Happy Valley is known for some of the most prestigious addresses in town, if not the entire East Bay, but it is loved for its semi-rural character and understated elegance. A mere 25 miles from downtown San Francisco, this prized pocket of town is centrally located and close to Hwy. 24/680, BART, the beloved Lafayette Reservoir, hiking and biking trails, Oakwood Athletic Club, downtown retail, and Lafayette’s popular restaurant row. We can’t forget Happy Valley Elementary School either with its A+ reputation!
