Tucked off the street in the heart of Burton Valley, this custom home is located in a sought-after pocket of Lafayette known for trick-or-treating, lemonade stands and a constant parade of kids to and from school and sports. The genuine warmth of this house and neighborhood evokes a sense of small-town living while the adjacent path to Burton Valley Elementary and the close proximity to Rancho Swim and Tennis Club and the Lafayette Community Center and Park, reflect its ideal location.
Boasting pride of ownership, this well-maintained property was loved by one family for more than 50 years! The inviting interior includes a formal front entry and living and dining rooms with newly refinished wide-plank hardwood floors, fireplace, picture windows, and exterior sliding door to the rear yard. The kitchen is comprised of a sunny breakfast nook and charming brick wall. The second story of the home features a master suite with walk-in closet and en suite full bath along with two well-proportioned secondary bedrooms that share the convenient hall bath. Located downstairs is a flexible, self-contained 1 bedroom/1 bathroom in-law unit with full kitchen featuring newly installed black and white checkerboard linoleum, an oversized living space and separate entrance that is a wonderful extension of this home. This multi-purpose space can be used for an au pair, extended family, guests, media room, or kids’ play/homework area! Other highlights of this cared for home include newly refinished hardwood floors, newly installed carpet (downstairs bedroom and living area), neutral paint, and charming vintage accents.
The exterior of the home sits above street level providing privacy and serene hillside views. Other highlights include mature landscape, level lawn, patio, garden areas, 2-car garage with ample storage, and side yard access and direct path to Burton Valley Elementary.
Whether your goal is to move-in and enjoy or expand and create your dream home, we encourage you to explore all that this home, property and convenient location have to offer!
