Nestled on top of 3.06 oak-studded acres in the beautiful Burton Valley, this custom-built estate artfully blends nature and architecture into a truly spectacular hilltop home. As you wind up the private driveway, you’ll marvel at the grand oaks, graceful eucalyptus trees and instant sense of serenity surrounding you. Created by respected designer and builder Tom Lowe in 1985, this was the builder’s own dream home, rich
in detail and quality finishes.
The exquisite main home features 3 bedrooms plus a huge bonus room/4th bedroom, 2 full and 1 half baths with approx.. 4,110 square feet of beautifully appointed living space with wooded valley and hill views from nearly every room. A charming rustic barn offers over 1,800 square feet of flexible use space with an attached 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment featuring approx. 600 square feet including a full kitchen, updated bathroom, living area, separate office/den and inside laundry, with a private courtyard entrance and spectacular sunset views.
Beautifully landscaped grounds weave in dozens of native plant species with custom imported rock features, meandering paths and multiple vista points to relax and take in the peaceful views. The main home’s gracious courtyard entry reflects a blend of old and new that is carried throughout the home’s unique and dramatic design. The protected back patio invites you to bask in the sun or swim in the custom designed lap pool with foot bridge . . . one of many unexpected pleasures you’ll encounter while touring this fabulous home.
Grand and elegant yet warm and inviting, the thoughtful design of this unique hilltop home combines dramatic architectural features with a comfortable home that is perfect for entertaining family and friends or simply to relax and enjoy every day living.
Low on density and high on greenery, Lafayette offers rolling hillsides, excellent schools, and an easy commute to Oakland and San Francisco thanks to the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station in the town center.
The Happy Valley area features meandering country roads and showplace estate homes perched on large hillside parcels that offer panoramic views of the valley. Mediterranean, English, and French Country architecture populate the landscaped neighborhoods.
Lafayette’s central business district offers quality shopping and dining for locals and visitors alike. Restaurants such as Artisan Bistro, Chevalier, and Metro Lafayette are thriving. For those seeking old-fashioned comfort food, Millie’s Kitchen is a popular breakfast and brunch restaurant with large portions and modest prices.
Lafayette Reservoir is open year-round for boating, fishing, picnicking, and hiking. After a long day on the water, locals head to The Roundup Saloon, a throwback to the days of rowdy roadhouses.
