Midcentury Beauty on Impressive 1.3 Acre Lot
Searching for a stunning property with privacy and charm? You’ll find it all here. Situated on 1.3 acres in Lafayette, the entrance to this beautiful midcentury home is down a curved private driveway. This dramatic residence was custom-designed by Bay Area architect William Kirk. Recently refinished hardwood floors, redwood walls and light colored flagstone masonry bring natural elements to the open floor plan. Huge windows and a grand fireplace in the living room showcase the magnificent backyard with azaleas, camellias and majestic oak, pine and redwood trees. Designed with two wings off the main living space, the second wing is perfect for a home studio or private guest quarters. The master suite has its own sliding door that opens to a private second patio and a luxurious midcentury en-suite bath with built-in wardrobe. Nestled in a private setting, this lovely home is surprisingly close to shopping, transportation, Briones Regional Park, and all the best of Lafayette.
