Bright contemporary treehouse with views on all sides, but complete privacy and quiet. Five bedrooms, 4 baths, surrounded by a gorgeous forest of oaks and eucalyptus plus multiple decks and patios for outdoor entertaining. Minutes to amenities such as Orchard nursery, Oakwood health club and the Lafayette reservoir, plus speedy freeway access. And downtown Lafayette, with its rich array of restaurants, gourmet markets, and boutique shopping, is just beyond.
An expansive driveway leads to a large flat approach big enough for
basketball games and bike riding, plus two lawns and beds of plantings. Park in the palatial three-car garage and head into a home full of wood and skylights and warmth and fireplaces and glass doors to multiple decks. This house feels great. Open plan living room with windows on all sides. Chef’s kitchen with an architect’s eye to detail: marble countertops, butcher block island, top-of-the-line appliances and easy access to the outdoor spaces. Head downstairs to au pair quarters or home office with private deck. Upstairs to the master suite with luxurious bath, giant walk-in closet, gas fireplace with beautiful stone surround, and sunny deck to relax on with coffee in a comfy chair.
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.
