Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: A resident of this vicinity for more than 35 years and have worked in the sales and marketing industy...mostly marketing myself around 'people helping people' with a customer focused goal of complete service and satisfaction.Most recent(10 yrs)in the Mortgage/Banking industry in support of Homeowners and Real Estate partners. Personal interests range from Health and fitness,Motorcycling,Sports,Golf and sharing Good food and wine with friends.

Why the Owner Chose Lafayette:
My original interest in this property was the potential of developing it into something of interest and my own vision of what it could become incorporating my personal flair for Architectural design and developement.The grounds,3.5 acres,the huge and ancient Oaks and the possibility of clearing areas to take advantage of the magnificent views,took on a life of its own.The pool,outdoor kitchen,lower lawn,garden area and Vineyard were a dream come true and truely takes you away from it all...but everything is right here within reach and access. Also shown on HomeAway # 251649

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Private and exclusive...On a private road with rare activity from neighboring area and difficult to see into private pool area.None of the features are shared. Indoor area is well furnished and very comfortable with functional layout.Views of the surrounding areas approx 300 degrees.Modern Kitchen,breakfast banquette area looks east toward early morning sun and pool in full view just below.Full audio and visual features in and around deck area. If you enjoy garden color,you will be happy to see a mature landscape add to the beauty.Much in Lavenders,Roses and other bedding plants.The entire backdrop for photo moments will be a definate feature for you and family.Fall brings an unbelievable color to the property as the strategic planting of Maples come alive ! Pool area gets in access of 9 hrs of full sun (peak)with umbrellas and cabana for protection if desired.The beach entry are gets the very last and facing east the setting sun on Mt Diablo is a highlight as you settle down to dinner.All ameneties are right at your fingertips and an after dinner drink around the fire pit or another dip in the pool will truly put you in the relax mode...as the sunset gives way to the twinkling light on the distant peaks and lower valley.Watch for the beam of orange light as it slowly breaks behind the Mountain.....the moon is in full view from this area and breathtaking when it is full and very hard to cut the evening short.Cabana equipt with change/bathroom.
