A sensational single-level contemporary farmhouse, a showpiece in the heart of Lafayette’s Happy Valley Glen neighborhood sprawls over almost an acre of land and showcases a fresh, light-filled interior and fabulous outdoor space.

Completely updated from its English white oak floors to the high ceilings and from the front gardens to a fantastic resort-style backyard, the home features about 3,576 square feet of living space with four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a flexible-use bonus room ideal for an executive office, game/playroom, or a possible fifth bedroom for guests. Crown molding, recessed lighting, custom blackout Roman shades, multiple skylights, wide baseboards, and millwork add to its classic style.

Multiple French doors offer a seamless flow to the backyard gardens that wrap around the bluestone patios, gas firepit, the solar-heated pebble tec pool, and built-in barbecue and grill with counter seating. Relish the ultra-private, creekside setting with numerous venues for entertaining, play, and relaxation, including a sports court and a fenced vegetable garden at the end of a flagstone pathway. Also blooming with seasonal color and foliage, the front gardens create a park-like setting and an inviting entry to this amazing home.

Beautifully designed and sizeable formal rooms include a living room with exposed trusses in a soaring vaulted ceiling and a gas fireplace with a solid slab surround that reaches the ceiling. French doors open to the patio and backyard. 

The adjacent formal dining room is designed to accommodate large gatherings and features a coffered ceiling with a pair of skylights and a front-facing bay window with a built-in window seat.

The chef’s kitchen is artfully designed with a gorgeous marble-topped island/breakfast bar, leathered black granite counters with a white subway tile backsplash, custom Shaker-style soft-close white cabinetry with polished nickel pulls and upper glass-faced cabinets, and stainless Franke farmhouse sink and Elka prep sink. Natural light from a pair of skylights illuminates the kitchen, which also features a peninsula island with additional breakfast bar seating. Stainless appliances include a six-burner Wolf cooktop, dual Thermador ovens, a SubZero wine refrigerator, and a paneled SubZero refrigerator.

The kitchen is open to an expansive family room anchored by a gas fireplace with a sleek limestone slab surround and convenient French door access to the backyard.

A private bedroom wing includes a luxurious primary suite with a high ceiling and private French door access to the backyard. Feel pampered in the en suite bathroom enhanced by marble finishes from the tile floor with a decorative mosaic inlay to the honed marble, dual-sink vanity with brushed gold fixtures. An oversized soaking tub and the adjacent shower are beautifully enhanced with marble surrounds. Extensive cabinetry, including custom shoe shelves and drawers, outfit the walk-in closet that also has a skylight and a pulldown ladder to attic storage.

Three other bedrooms are spacious rooms and include Elfa closet organizing systems and blackout shades. One bedroom has a vaulted ceiling. One bedroom has a front-facing bay window with a built-in window seat. The bathrooms are stylishly designed with marble finishes and brushed gold fixtures.

You can’t beat this coveted Lafayette location, less than a mile to BART and the charming downtown shopping district and less than a mile and a half to award-winning K-12 schools in the Lafayette and Acalanes school districts. Enjoy the rural setting without compromising easy freeway access and a variety of outdoor recreation areas, including the popular Lafayette Reservoir and Briones Regional Park.
