PROPERTY SUMMARY

~

An exceptional gated property in Lafayette’s Upper Happy Valley is a dream-come-true for those desiring an exclusive and timeless estate lot. Open the gates to the grand, tree-lined entrance into this extraordinary acre property featuring a custom-built and updated single-level Hamptons-style home. The professional landscaped park-like setting create an ultra-private sanctuary.

Approximately 3,343 square feet of living space showcases refinished and new hardwood floors with custom color, gorgeous millwork, soaring ceilings, updated and new lighting, and a freshly painted interior and exterior.

Five bedrooms and three bathrooms include a two-bedroom/one-bathroom detached and updated guesthouse. Expansive formal living and dining rooms and a gourmet eat-in kitchen with an adjoining sitting area are filled with natural light. Multiple French doors from most rooms open to the inviting outdoor space, sprawling decks, and patios offering many views of the gardens.

Built in 1936, this home once graced the pages of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine with photos of its picturesque breezeway topped with a decorative weathervane. The romantic breezeway still connects the house to the two-car garage. A full basement also offers room for an ideal wine cellar or additional storage.
