A fresh and light-filled interior, single-level living, and a beautifully designed outdoor space on a three-home cul-de-sac is the total move-in ready package created by a trio of local talent including homebuilder Branagh Construction, the Talon Group architects, and renowned landscape architect Peter Koenig. Located just off Moraga Way with easy access into downtown Orinda, neighboring Moraga, local parks, BART, and freeways. The home was built in 2005 and is in like-new condition with an easy flow and view of the backyard space from just about every room. Its more than 3,500 square feet of living space is appointed with hardwood floors, high ceilings, detailed millwork, crown molding, and large dual pane windows and features 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a dedicated office, formal rooms, and chef’s kitchen with adjacent casual dining and family room.

Outdoor Amenities

            A Peter Koenig-designed front and backyard landscape wraps around this single-level home creating a private and peaceful sanctuary ideal for children of all ages and families to play, explore, garden and enjoy. Eight months in the making, the outdoor space used double retaining walls to create a larger level space. Gorgeous full range Connecticut Bluestone front and back walkways, patio with custom pergola, and steps are all illuminated in new landscape lighting.

            Room for a trampoline, play structure and dome guarantee hours of fun in addition to plenty of room for parties, play dates, and gatherings of all sizes. Share a bottle of wine made from the Merlot and Cabernet grapes that grace the gentle slope and are maintained by a residential vineyard service that also harvests the grapes.

 The expansive lawn also connects with a prolific vegetable garden and multiple fruit trees dot the landscape. Square pads create a convenient pathway from the patio to the master bedroom’s French door. Increase the bounty with additional vines or fruit trees, or let the level yard inspire the design of an outdoor kitchen, pool, spa, cabana, and play structure. Offered at $2,095,000
