Contemporary luxury meets transitional refinement on this approximately 1.5 acre flat “lot of your dreams” nestled in the coveted neighborhood of Happy Valley. Sophisticated modern Walnut doors welcome you into an impressive entry appointed with an all glass, temperature-controlled 324 bottle wine room, soaring wood beamed ceilings and a custom entertaining bar. A state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen is anchored by a beautiful island with honed Estremos Portuguese marble, high-end stainless-steel appliances and effortlessly partners with an exquisite, light filled adjacent grand formal dining room with custom Walnut built-ins. Entertainment spaces abound with an inviting family room appointed with a slate stone fireplace and a top floor bonus room boasting a fully-equipped theater room, separated snack bar with beverage and wine refrigerators and adjacent guest suite with its own entrance. A newly renovated primary suite showcases a luxurious Calacatta marble bathroom curated with a jetted shower/soaking tub, relaxing fireplace and double doors leading to a private patio with tranquil fountain and separate studio. Three secondary bedrooms also share the main floor, each with newly designed en suite bathrooms with bespoke touches. A newly renovated guest cottage features an on-trend kitchen, laundry, bed/bath and high ceiling living space. The resort style yard is truly one-of-a-kind centered around an oversized pool and spa with a slide surrounded by five 360-degree shade umbrellas and built-in pavilion and fire table and an outdoor bathroom/shower. The yard continues with large grassy fields, a 60 x 30 sport court, bocce ball, Zen Garden, play structure, dramatic fountains, mature rose and vegetable gardens and a private well for irrigation. This incredible exclusive estate, just minutes from Highway 24, is in close proximity to amazing hiking trails, BART, Happy Valley Elementary School and downtown Lafayette’s finest restaurants and shops.
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.
