21 Sandy Court, Orinda

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.

The welcoming foyer is bright with natural light from the glass-paneled front door and matching sidelights. The spacious foyer sets the stage for a sophisticated interior that is also refreshingly comfortable. A formal living room offers a fabulous view of the backyard gardens and is anchored by a fireplace with a marble surround, and a carved mantel. Painted built-in cabinetry flanks either side. A formal dining room features a front-facing window and front garden view, recessed niche for a buffet and elegant columns in addition to the crown molding. Behind glass French doors is the executive office space paneled in rich wood and built-in shelves and cabinetry. This room also has a front-facing view window and plush carpeting.

The heart of the home features a chef’s kitchen appointed with granite counters and island/breakfast bar with a prep sink. Painted cabinetry with pullout shelves and brushed nickel pulls wrap around the kitchen that features also features a Viking 6-burner cooktop with grill and full granite backsplash, and KitchenAid stainless appliances including dual ovens, dishwasher and refrigerator.

The kitchen is open to the casual dining area that also offers French door access to the backyard patio and gardens. A vaulted, exposed beam ceiling and rear-facing windows in the adjacent family creates a bright and spacious gathering space for family and friends. This room features a stone fireplace with a raised hearth and built-in media cabinetry.

Four bedrooms include a luxurious and spacious master retreat that features a vaulted ceiling, French door access to the backyard gardens, gas fireplace and built-in dresser, a dual walk-in closets.  The bathroom is equally sumptuous and spacious with a dual sink and limestone topped vanity, make-up vanity, decorative sconces, Jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower, and crown molding.

Two additional bedrooms in this wing feature spacious closets with French doors and wood blinds. They share a large bathroom with a separate single-sink vanity area from the bathtub/shower combination.

A fourth bedroom located just off the family room is an ideal guest room with a full en suite bathroom that also has private access to the backyard.

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.
