Designed by Jarvis Architects with the current owners, the sleek design and walls of glass create a home of modern sensibility, picturesque views and natural light. This five bedroom and four and a half bath residence is a masterful example of modern architectural design in 3668 square feet. It combines classic design elements with the open seamless transition from interior to exterior spaces providing the ultimate in comfortable California living.

This wonderful home has a fabulous floor plan with functionality and versatility that is so very hard to find. It gives the flexibility of modern living, extended family and work at home opportunities, while embracing a warm feeling of truly being at home.

The upper level with a garage that has a workshop and extra storage opens to the ideal bonus/hobby room that doubles as an office.

On the main level one can find a spacious au-pair/in-law unit with kitchenette, full bath, ample office space and a private entrance to the outside. The front door opens to the stunning interior areas that flow easily into each other with walls of glass framing a breathtaking view. A sunny, fully equipped kitchen with breakfast counter opens to the dining area taking in the magnificent views. Perfect for entertaining, the living room with wood burning fireplace and built-ins are highlighted by soaring ceilings, adding to the sense of spaciousness, peace and serenity, which are defining characteristics of this extraordinary residence. There is a convenient half bath on this floor. The new outdoor decks and trellis take in the sounds of birds, the creek below and views of the Orinda Country Club.

On the bedroom level one finds a full laundry, three generous bedrooms and two full bathrooms including a master suite. The master bath has dual vanity and bath tub. The elegant master suite opens to a private deck overlooking the meticulously maintained garden, creating a pleasant relaxing ambience and the ease of an indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Fresh paint and new carpet throughout are amongst the more recent enhancements of this lovely home.

A private stairway gracefully descends to an oversized media center/family room with exercise studio. The fifth bedroom with full bath is also on this level. Sliding glass doors go out to a hot tub offering the perfect respite from a busy day.

The outdoor spaces provide an idyllic environment for gathering with friends and family or just to relax in the natural surroundings. A little slice of Heaven on Earth.
