Iconic Walnut Creek Farmhouse...
2669 square feet
.45 acre lot
Iconic 1937 Farmhouse lovingly restored, remodeled and enlarged by the current owner. Own a piece of history in Walnut Creek, as this is one of the first homes constructed in the city. Set on a mostly flat .45 acre lot, this property is a rarity: a combination of a gorgeous custom home, an oversized lot, and excellent proximity to one of the most popular downtowns in Northern California.
Pulling up to the home reminds you of coming up to your grandparents' farm in the country: a farmhouse style fence gives privacy without obstructing the view of the home & front yard. The pristine white facade and sprawling front porch, deck & steps invite you to come right in.
This Winter you can open the door to your new home and be greeted by soaring wood ceilngs and go warm up immediately by a crackling fire in the classic wood burning fireplace. The modern open floor plan allows easy entertaining on the main level, with a family room, dining area, kitchen and family room all flowing into each other. Sprawling spaces with built-ins make for comfortable living with abundant storage. A Gourmet kitchen with fresh white cabinetry, Quartz slab countertops, stainless appliances and a island with plenty of space to seat up to 4, will be a favorite gathering spot this holiday season. The family room just off the kitchen opens to a spacious deck which gives ample space for outdoor seating and is really just the best spot to go outside after dinner for an apéritif and enjoy a cool evening and view of the stars. A half bath perfectly placed in the midst of the main living area ensures that guests do not have to ramble through your home this holiday season in search of a bathroom.
Superb primary bedroom privately situated at the rear of the home offers a luxurious primary bathroom with throwback clawfooted tub in the corner with a view of the backyard, separate stall shower, dual sink vanity and a walk-in, fully finished closet.
Downstairs...2 bedrooms offer the perfect work from home space, and/or private children hangout areas. A secondary living space between the bedrooms is perfect for a homework center, video game station or reading nook.
.45 is a pretty spacious lot: it allows for abundant backyard space with the enchanting mature Valley Oak tree at the heart of the backyard, a brick patio and pergola offer a cozy area to sit with friends and enjoy the beautiful Northern California weather year round. The front yard here truly offers opportunities as well: what used to be an horse corral area years ago, now offers the chance for you to plant gardens, build an ADU, install a fountain- the possibilities are endless, only subject to your whims & imagination. Freshly planted, low maintenance landscape includes trees that will one day bloom to become beautiful mature shade giving creatures, giving your front yard character that is irreplacable.
*One detail to note is that the .40 acre lot is being offered for sale right next door. Why is this important to you? If you have your Mom, Sister, best friend, college roommate- and you've been wanting to start that compound and live rigth next door to each other...well, this is your opportunity! Seldom do you have this chance. The lot is nearly entirely flat and has abundant space to build a home, guest house and still have plenty of room for a sizable yard and landscape. Listed for $849,000.
