Towards the end of a bucolic cul de sac, leading to a trailhead for Claremont Canyon Preserve, this thoughtfully designed and well maintained modern home is flooded with natural light from every angle. Beautifully integrated into the mostly level site, with interesting architectural details, it feels like living in a retreat on the Mediterranean coast. From every room, one looks out onto beautiful verdant and blooming vistas, through the numerous windows and glass doors to Claremont Canyon Preserve, the Bay, Golden Gate Bridge, Redwood groves and to the olive trees across the road.
With over 3,800 SF of living space, the floor plan and circulation hits a balance of space and intimacy. An additional 1000 SF present usable workshop, covered balcony and storage spaces with a 2+ car garage. This home has all the bells and whistles, from high-end appliances, walk-in closets to the awning-covered heated balcony looking over tiled roofs to Claremont Canyon. The quality is apparent from the beautiful windows, integral color plaster walls, Douglas Fir doors and tile and stone selections. Wonderful indoor-outdoor flow to the numerous balconies, patios & garden.
This house has tremendous flexibility – the dining room and living room can be interchanged, the lower level media room could be a guest suite or au-pair unit and several rooms or areas can be used as office spaces or playrooms. The beautiful stairway swirls up through a dramatic double volume space topped by a large skylight and feels like a stairway to the clouds and stars.
Cul-de-sacs always invite community, and this is no exception. On the street, one frequently encounters a neighbor walking their dog or watching the birds. Serenity and beauty abound. Though in this tranquil natural setting, you’re only a 10 minute drive to Orinda or Rockridge BART stations and close freeway access as well.
