This updated 3BR+/2.5BA modern ranch-style home in the Orinda Hills is available now for 1 year rental. It’s a truly special find, with tons of sun-filled living space, fun outdoor space, and plenty of new upgrades.
From the shady driveway, a wooden front gate leads to a stone walkway through the large, green front yard with tall deer fencing and mature trees. The walkway leads you to a stone front patio and stately front door. As you enter the house, there’s a built-in coat rack on the left and a large living room on your right with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over the landscaped front yard. This bright, comfortable room has a decorative fireplace and built-in shelving. An 8-foot wall partition separates the living room from the formal dining room, which also has a wall of floor to ceiling windows – these overlooking the rear yard – and built-in shelving and storage for your plates, glasses, and special occasion cookware.
A wide doorway connects the dining room with the open concept kitchen/family room with vaulted ceilings and large french doors that open out to the rear patio and terraced lawn. The kitchen is stylishly updated with marble countertops, a deep farm sink, 6 burner Wolf stove, Bosch dishwasher, wine fridge, and tons of cabinet and counter space for easy entertaining or cooking up a big meal. A wall of cabinets lines the right wall that serves as a pantry, with pull out shelves and drawers, as well as concealing the Sub-Zero fridge and LG washer/dryer and laundry area.
Opposite the kitchen island is a bright family room, which is large enough for an L-shaped couch and entertainment center. There’s an upgraded half bath off the kitchen/family room, plus indoor access to the 2-car garage for easy grocery unloading and packing up for weekends away.
The three bedrooms and two full bathrooms for the house are located on the opposite side of the main entrance and common rooms, for maximum privacy and quiet. The bedrooms are along the hallway that leads from the foyer. There are 2 bedrooms on the left side, both large with windows with custom shutters overlooking the lush front yard. They have hardwood floors and large wall closets. A full bath is in the hallway opposite the bedrooms, with chic grey tiling, pedestal sink, and shower over tub.
At the far end of the hallway is a large master suite, with lush carpeting and en suite bathroom with a standing shower and a large walk-in closet. The master bedroom also has a separate room with a window, which would make a perfect nursery, office, or additional dressing room.
The backyard is simply awesome, with terraced lawn and patio areas for relaxing and entertaining, and LOTS of space to run and play. There is a stone patio off the rear of the house, easily accessible from the kitchen and family room. A few steps up is a large terraced lawn with a second patio, including a large patio table and comfy patio chairs. A curved stone stairway leads up to the top terrace, with a vintage wooden play structure, tons of room for playing, and sweeping views.
There’s a large 2 car garage with automated door, plus a driveway for parking. The home has central heat and AC, and monthly gardening service to care for the lawns.
The house is located in the Country Club/Tiger Tail neighborhood in the great Orinda School District. It has easy access to Hwy 24 and all the great businesses in both downtown Orinda and Lafayette.
Short distance to bus service for Orinda Intermediate School and Miramonte High School.
