The front porch entry welcomes you to this sophisticated home with the warm light emanating from the hand crafted Bevolo fixture. Immediately greeted into formal parlor with a gas fireplace on the left and formal dining room beyond, one quickly notices the beautifully finished hardwood floors, designer light fixtures, chair rail wainscoting, and crown molding abundantly wrapping the spaces. Continuing through the entry, the rooms open up into a spectacularly large great room with wood beamed ceilings, Andersen wood doors leading to the loggia and backyard, and a black granite surround gas fireplace with a custom mantel. Adjoining the great room is the unbelievable chef’s kitchen appropriately appointed with built-in Thermador refrigerator, paneled dishwasher, microwave, and 48” stand-alone Thermador range. The white cabinetry and designer painted contrasting island are topped with a stunning leather finished granite with a gray subway tile back-splash; a modern take on a timeless combination. Hung above the island are gorgeous glass Ralph Lauren light fixtures perfectly finishing the space with their refined detail.
The master suite enjoys privacy and views through the wall of glass facing the hills and features two large master closets, a beautifully finished master bath with soaking tub, walk in shower, double sinks and limestone finishes. The secondary bedrooms of the home include a junior master suite with access to the rear yard and loggia, additional junior master suite upstairs and two additional ample size bedrooms with hall bathroom.
Other main floor rooms include a powder room, laundry room with built-ins and cabinetry, and an oversized three car garage.
Outdoor spaces are well designed and usable on this large landscaped 0.49 acre lot. Stamped concrete patios wrap the exterior creating a front porch, multiple dining areas and the ultimate California room – a media ready loggia with gas fireplace. Beyond the patio, lawn and landscaping, a crushed stone platform provides the perfect fire-pit arena set against a backdrop view of the incredible hills of Wilder Valley.
Wilder is community of homes set in the Orinda hills, surrounded by preserved open space. It offers state of the art community facilities including a gym, pool and community rooms. An easily accessible paradise, this small valley is just 30 minutes from San Francisco, minutes from downtown Orinda and convenient access to BART and freeways. Truly a stunning setting, you’ll feel worlds away but will sleep easy knowing you actually couldn’t be closer.
