Livermore house description

This gated country estate, surrounded by a natural stone wall, offers expansive views of the Bay Area from the snow-capped Sierras to the San Mateo peninsula, and is adjacent to the Mt. Diablo/East Bay Regional Park with over 1000 miles of hiking, biking, and riding trails. Horses graze peacefully on the grassy foothills, and the estate abounds with wildlife, which you can view from the picture windows in every room.

This magnificent, serene setting has been described by visitors as comparable to being on a perennial vacation. Very private, yet just minutes from the 580 and 680 freeways, this 16-acre gated retreat has be to experienced to be believed.

Located close to the expansive Delta system connecting the Bay Area with Sacramento. Fishing, boating, swimming, and all water sports are readily available.

The location offers close proximity to airports, both private and international, Bay Area Rapid Transit, and numerous golf courses. The thriving Tri-Valley area abounds with restaurants and shopping. Numerous tourist spots are nearby: San Francisco, AT&T Ballpark, the wineries of Napa/Sonoma/Livermore, Great America, Marine World/Africa USA, and Water World. Yosemite National Park, Monterey, Carmel, Santa Cruz, and ocean beaches are close by.
This 4200 square foot mountain home retreat has a gourmet kitchen; the bathrooms are tumbled marble. The house features extensive use of redwood, hardwood flooring, marble, stone, and brick; all the upgrades.

This home is one of two on the private estate - the other can be viewed at VRBO #165938.
