Set behind private gates in the sought-after Happy Valley neighborhood, this exceptional estate features a rare combination of privacy, terraced level-land, and pristine Mt. Diablo views. The home’s interior is flooded with light from perfectly placed floor-to-ceiling windows, which frame 270-degree views of Mt. Diablo and the surrounding hillsides. Wake up to spectacular sunrises from the primary retreat and enjoy the evening alpenglow on Mt. Diablo from the dining room. With incredible indoor/outdoor living spaces, including an approximately 1,000 sf patio, mature gardens, a level play area, and a pool deck complete with a diving board, this property has it all!

Enjoy luxury living with high-ceilings throughout, custom millwork, wide-plank Royal Oak floors, recently updated LED lighting, ample storage, and a three-car garage, all within a short distance to top-rated schools and Lafayette’s impressive downtown. The light-filled and oversized living and dining rooms are an entertainers dream, providing the perfect space for gatherings of family and friends. In the recently renovated bedroom wing, this home’s primary suite includes a spacious and private office complete with stunning views, built-in bookcases, and a fireplace.

This expansive property also includes a vintage grass tennis court, as well as a detached 500 sf barn, which once housed horses that the owner rode in the 20+ acres of open space behind the property. Endless possibilities in the barn; one could convert the space into a guest house, a fitness studio, a finished garage, or even a home school - you decide! This opportunity can’t be missed!

3683 Happy Valley Road

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.
