4 Bed / 2 Bath
2007 Sq. Ft +/-
Tucked behind a quintessential white picket fence, on a treasured piece of Lafayette land, sits this incredible opportunity in the sought-after Trail neighborhood. Perfectly positioned at the end of a private cul-de-sac, this updated single-story sits on a nearly 2.5-acre parcel providing the unique opportunity to create a magnificent estate (chalk full of amenities), create a family compound that will accommodate generations to come or move-in and enjoy as-is. The fairly-level land is dotted with majestic Oaks and provides privacy and views of the surrounding hills. The tranquil and serene setting evokes a sense of small-town living, while the close proximity to top-rated Lafayette schools, commute routes, downtown Lafayette and Walnut Creek and the prized Lafayette trail, reflect its ideal central location.
Interior highlights of this charming traditional include a sun-filled living/dining great room with a pitched, open-beam ceiling, white brick fireplace, recently refinished hardwood floors, charming windows, access to the large view/entertaining deck, and beautiful views of the surrounding land. The eat-in kitchen includes charcoal grey cabinetry and built-ins, newly installed Calacutta marble slab countertops, Viking gas stove, adjacent dining nook with built-in buffet, pine hardwood floors (most-likely from the original farmhouse), and access to the rear dining deck. The master suite provides wonderful views of the hills and rolling land, a deep, walk-in closet along with two additional closets, en suite full bath, and access to the side deck. The three well-proportioned secondary bedrooms (one with walk-in closet) share the secondary bath. Additional highlights include an interior laundry/mud room, fresh paint and carpet, and newly refinished hardwood floors (great room).
Generous views, privacy and stunning outdoor venues combine to create a majestic setting with a sense of allure. Exterior spaces include a welcoming front porch, flagstone walkways, multiple decks perfect for dining, entertaining, stargazing, and relaxation, and multiple sheds and enclosed spaces under the decks for dedicated storage. In addition, there is a detached studio which includes electricity and a wood-burning stove making it ideal as an artist studio, office or gym – you decide! The open land evokes a sense of country living with the sights and sounds of nature while providing the rare ability to plant a vineyard, build a pool or tennis court, expand the current residence, build additional structures, house livestock, create an orchard or garden, or simply leave it in its natural state and enjoy. To top it off, the property includes an un-tapped well (drilled to 600 ft.) with the ability to flow 25 gallons of water per minute for future use.
Whether moving up or down, we encourage you to explore all this charming home, unbelievable parcel and ideal location have to offer!
