Traverse stone steps to the top of your own private knoll and enjoy coffee on the stone patio while viewing the rolling hills. Multiple patios and decks are stationed to enjoy the view, the quiet, and watch as animals walk the natural wildlife trail and seasonal stream. A play structure and acres of trees to explore offer endless hours of fun for the young ones.
Two spacious bedroom suites, a charming 3rd bedroom with French doors and private patio and 4th bedroom with fireplace and patio (currently used as an office) plus a work-out room offer many possibilities for today's work-at-home buyer. A large kitchen with custom cabinetry, millwork and lighting, along with high end appliances opens to the family room and wrap around deck with sunset vistas. Formal dining room and living room boast beautiful wainscoting and coffered ceilings and an additional annex room which could be an office.
The oversized 4 car garage offers a huge shop which could easily be converted to additional parking stalls. A cellar is prepared and waiting for your finishing touch to create storage for hundreds of bottles of wine. Ample stand-up attic space insure you will never run out of storage.
Low on density and high on greenery, Lafayette offers rolling hillsides, excellent schools, and an easy commute to Oakland and San Francisco thanks to the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station in the town center. The Happy Valley area features meandering country roads and showplace estate homes perched on large hillside parcels that offer panoramic views of the valley. Mediterranean, English, and French Country architecture populate the landscaped neighborhoods. Lafayette’s central business district offers quality shopping and dining for locals and visitors alike. Restaurants such as Artisan Bistro, Chevalier, and Metro Lafayette are thriving. For those seeking old-fashioned comfort food, Millie’s Kitchen is a popular breakfast and brunch restaurant with large portions and modest prices. Lafayette Reservoir is open year-round for boating, fishing, picnicking, and hiking. After a long day on the water, locals head to The Roundup Saloon, a throwback to the days of rowdy roadhouses.
