630 Center Street, WALNUT CREEK, CA 94595
The impeccable William Wood classic farmhouse design graces the quarter-acre, ultra-private, and gated property that is ideally nestled between Lafayette and Walnut Creek.
Masterfully and custom-crafted by Essy Construction with attention to every detail, the new construction was completed in 2017. Mostly single-level living, the home showcases almost 2,600 square feet of living space, a brilliantly light-filled and open floor plan with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, hardwood floors, high ceilings, recessed lighting, oversized windows, and smooth textured walls.
Almost 450 square feet of front porch creates a welcoming invitation to relax with a glass of lemonade and a good book or gather with friends. Views of the artfully designed landscape with more than 18 new trees and neighboring towering trees add to the peaceful, rural setting. A paver walkway meanders around the home alongside lush garden beds bursting with seasonal color and connects to the backyard patio. The patio is also plumbed for gas should you desire to add a built-in grill.
A great room offers generous living and dining areas and a fabulous chef’s kitchen that leaves little to be desired. A vaulted ceiling soars in the living area that also has a gas fireplace, custom built-in maple cabinetry, and a skylight for more natural light. The adjacent dining area has a coffered ceiling and sliding French doors that open to the private paver patio and a view of a trio of Red Bud trees and garden beds.
A bright and sunny kitchen features custom cabinetry, Ceasarstone counters with a full tile backsplash, an island/breakfast bar with beadboard detailing, and a trio of pendants light fixtures. The kitchen is well appointed with a Wolf six-burner range, Thermador dishwasher, paneled SubZero refrigerator, and a Sharp microwave. The deep Kohler farmhouse sink has a polished nickel faucet. Front-facing windows catch an abundance of natural light. A walk-in pantry offers additional storage options.
The mudroom/laundry room is designed with a built-in workstation and a built-in folding counter, a sink, and a full-sized stacked LG washer and dryer. Access the garden through a side door.
A hand-cut Heritage crystal chandelier suspended from a coffered ceiling illuminates the luxurious master suite. French doors provide private access to the paver patio. The beautifully designed bathroom has a dual sink vanity, polished nickel faucets, a sumptuous MTI handcrafted freestanding bathtub, and an oversized shower with an Italian tile surround highlighted with a band of decorative marble tile. Behind a pocket door is a walk-in closet with a pull-down ladder to access attic storage.
Two other bedrooms have front-facing garden views and include one behind glass French doors currently being used as a home office.
A fourth bedroom, located above the two-car garage, has a separate entry and its own heating and air conditioning units. Approximately 534 square feet, this ideal studio apartment also has a vaulted ceiling with a ceiling fan, an en suite bathroom, a pair of dormer windows, and plush carpeting. It is plumbed for a kitchenette.
At the end of the long two-car-wide paver driveway is a two-car garage with epoxy flooring, an electric car charging station, and a large storage closet with shelving ideal for those runs to Costco or holiday decorations.
Other features include a tankless water heater, HVAC, Andersen 400s dual pane windows, a garden shed, screened gutters, and a Ring security system.
