513 Miner Road

Inspired by a love and lifelong appreciation of Japanese art and architecture and renovated for a contemporary lifestyle, this Orinda Country Club estate property is a spectacular work-of-art that beautifully harmonizes indoor/outdoor living.

Fabulous gardens lovingly cultivated and maintained for decades, showcase an equally impressive design of foliage and trees started from seeds and collected from all over the world. Rhododendrons, dogwoods, magnolia, and camellias burst with seasonal color along the meandering pathways and under the canopies of mature evergreens. A popular stop for past garden tours, the peaceful aesthetic that includes a koi pond and migration-style gardens remains a welcoming embrace at the end of a busy day.

The more than 4,100 square feet of living space, mostly on one level in the main house, is a celebration of natural light and openness designed by the talented Jon Larson and Carolyn Van Lang of Jarvis Architects and masterfully crafted by builder Whitney Collins. The design received the Mayor’s Award for Excellence in Architecture in 2009.

This team of talent was also engaged to create a 704 square-foot cottage/guesthouse on the more than acre property. Completed just last year, its design, inspired by the Katsura Imperial Villa in Kyoto, Japan, and gardens, seamlessly blend and connect with the existing home and gardens.

Quarter sawn oak floors, Venetian plaster accent walls, coffered ceilings with the rich walnut trim, and walls of windows framing the natural artwork of the garden views. “Shoji” style, floor-to-ceiling frosted glass pocket doors can separate the main living, dining, and family rooms, and kitchen into separate, intimate spaces. Slide them open for an amazing “great room” effect. Skylights, including one at the entry, allow even more natural light to illuminate the interior.

There are three large bedroom suites, including a master retreat with a spa-inspired bath that has access to a private garden and walls of sliding glass doors to the gardens. There is also a front-facing office.

The gourmet kitchen’s design continues the same soft and muted tones in its Caesarstone counters, island/breakfast bar, and Hemlock cabinetry and is well appointed with Thermador, SubZero, and Dacor appliances. A sliding glass door allows access to the wrap-around deck and a built-in outdoor barbecue.

A lower level bonus room offers fabulous flexible space that also has a full bathroom, fireplace, private garden entry, and additional space to create a wine cellar.

Ideally located mid-way on the lovely Miner Road along a private road with easy access into downtown Lafayette and the Orinda Village, BART stations, freeway access, top-rated schools in the Orinda, and Acalanes school districts, and about 20 miles east of San Francisco. Enjoy the proximity to the historic Orinda Country Club, and outdoor recreation at the Lafayette Reservoir and Tilden and Briones Regionals Parks.
