In a cheerful, established, and simply lovely Castro Valley neighborhood is this large contemporary home with a gorgeous exterior setting. Out front, mature colorful landscaping and the rich herringbone paver driveway and pathway ornament the freshly painted, proud home.
Main-Level Beauty - Inside, bright and airy rooms with brand-new gleaming wood floors flow across the expansive floorplan. The home begins with an adjoining living and family room. An ideal layout, the living room is centered around the fireplace for warm ambience and next door is the media family room with sunny bay windows.
Centered in the home is the extra-large dining room with a modern chandelier—a perfect design for festive holiday gatherings of family and friends. Adjacent, the kitchen space is also in abundant supply, especially with the attached casual dining area and high vaulted ceilings bringing volume and light. Long flowing stone counters cap copious rich wood cabinetry and meet high-end stainless-steel appliances, including a Miele 6-burner range and Bosch double oven. The island with bar seating is the social spot for chatting up the chef with a glass of pinot in hand. To further the dining options, glass doors open to the huge back deck for indoor-outdoor flow, entertaining, or just a quiet night eating under the stars with a loved one.
Completing the lower level is the bedroom area, separated for privacy. This includes a hallway with three bedrooms—one with a full ensuite bath—and an additional second full bath for utmost convenience.
Posh Primary Suite - Upstairs is the coveted primary suite level. With three connected rooms, the primary enables options for its layout to include a full office, extra-large walk-in closet, or even a sitting area. It also features a private ensuite bath and, just across the hall, a library/reading room perched over the first floor. Finally, its private outdoor deck is a wonderful spot to bury a nose in a book on a sunny weekend morning.
Out back, the shades of colorful trees and flora come together like a natural mosaic. The trees create a magical shaded canopy over the yard—the beauty which can be enjoyed from the sunny deck. Plus, a trickling brook flows at the end of the yard and beneath the bridge to the garage behind the home. How special!
Bonus! Attached to the garage is a studio apartment, creating options for use as a rental income unit or a home office—perfect for keep work separate and maintaining a work-life balance.
