Features

This splendid Walnut Creek estate is a Santa Barbara style Mediterranean that was built between 2006 and 2014.  The home sits on a tree lined street with mature olive & cypress trees.  Tucked on the corner of the near acre lot is the casita with private terrace, kitchen, bathroom and garage.

The bright and airy interior was designed to maximize indoor/outdoor living with access to the exterior terrace and patios from almost every room.  The ceiling height spans close to 20’ in the entry way and the gracious living room & open kitchen beckon California living. 

There are three zones for forced hot air and air conditioning and the majority of rooms also have radiant floor heating.  There are hand scraped hardwood floors throughout the house.  A Control4 home automation system powers the alarm, security cameras, media and built-in speakers throughout.

In 2015, the current owner further improved the home with ~$400k of improvements.  The kitchen, used to shoot a Food Network series, was redesigned around a massive Carrara marble topped island with two Sub-Zero refrigerators, two Miele dishwashers, Miele coffee system & microwave, a Wolf warming drawer and a 59” La Cornue range & hood.  The floors, countertops, island and cabinetry were all replaced. 

The entire property was painted and lights were replaced with fixtures mostly from Restoration Hardware.  The master bathroom was completely rebuilt with a walk-in steam shower, German Dornbracht faucets and a BainUltra therapeutic bathtub.
