The sense of serenity that surrounds this residence delights the senses and is the epitome of seclusion and tranquility. Captivating views are enjoyed from this extraordinary home that is filled with amenities.

Walls of glass bring the beautiful natural setting into the gracious entry with a soaring 18 foot ceiling that opens to a sun drenched view of the Orinda hills. A grand dining area opens to an adjacent living room with plush new carpeting. A grand fireplace is both open and intimate with large sliding glass doors framing a magnificent vista. From here one can enter a light bright kitchen with recently refinished rich hardwood floors. The stark white cabinetry in in strong contrast to the warm hardwood flooring and the strength of the rich granite tile countertops. An eat-in counter makes this the ideal location for guests to mingle and enjoy a glass of wine, while the host puts the finishing touches on a delightful meal.

Through sliding glass doors one can dine alfresco on a magnificent deck overlooking the surrounding hillside and truly stunning views. Another adjacent deck makes a wonderful location for outside parties and play.

Two additional bedrooms and an office or nursery are also found on this level with wooded views.

On the remaining floor there is a grand bonus or family room with another full bedroom and bath making this the ideal au pair suite if needed.

With approximately 2,000 sq ft of decks for entertaining, outdoor activities and being close to nature, one can take in the lovely views of the idyllic surroundings, whether for morning espresso or an evening cocktail, as the hills turn a sunset orange. A large gentle yard opens to a wooded area perfect of exploring and climbing trees.
