NESTLED IN A QUIET POCKET OF DOWNTOWN LAFAYETTE’S COVETED LAFAYETTE WOODLANDS NEIGHBORHOOD, this renovated and expanded almost 5000-square-foot gated home is a true treasure not to be missed. The brilliance of a Steven Kubitschek design, and the craftsmanship of RJ Hill Construction, combine with magical gardens to create this memorable English-style home and property.
Meticulously crafted upgrades retain the integrity of the home’s original old-world charm and design. Details include gorgeous hardwood floors, hand-forged wrought iron work, plaster walls, divided light windows, and an elevator that connects all three floors. The oversized, eat-in, chef’s kitchen is also a highlight with high-end finishes and stainless appliances. The home boasts a flexible floor plan and is ideal for multigenerational living, entertaining, families with an au pair, or simply those who love to accommodate guests. The home’s master bedroom suite includes an added bonus area designed to be a sitting room, exercise space or office – you decide. In addition, there are three secondary bedrooms (one currently being used as an executive office) and full in-law unit with separate entrance that incorporates a sleeping area, bonus room and kitchenette, as well as a sunroom with balcony overlooking the yard, and possible wine cellar (currently used as a work/storage room).
Presumed to be a father’s wedding gift to his daughter, the original home was built in 1936 on a sprawling park-like .78± acre parcel. The romantic setting has a deep set back with expansive lawns, mature oaks, meandering pathways, terraced brick patios, and European style rock walls. Many possibilities exist to further customize the exterior with pool, cabana, outdoor kitchen, raised vegetable planters and more.
This sought-after enclave of homes is ideally located less than a mile from charming downtown Lafayette known for its small-town ambience, restaurant-row, and green hills that provide a variety of recreational amenities. This home offers the best of city living in a serene, private neighborhood. To top it off, the neighborhood provides a walking-path to award-winning Lafayette/Acalanes Unified schools and plenty of space for all to explore.
