This magical Burton Valley retreat beautifully marries understated elegance, prolific gardens, resort-inspired amenities for all ages, and an envied sustainable environment. It is not often you have an opportunity like this to be part of a vibrant community or retreat to privacy and relaxation all in the same day!
Inspired by the owners’ travels through Italy, Monterrey-based architect Hal Moseley designed the Mediterranean-style home in 2000 featuring custom arched wood doors, stone floors, aged tile roofs and high-end finishes throughout.
Stroll through the home’s picturesque grounds and you will quickly see why this is an entertainer’s dream. Highlights include vine covered pergolas, multiple seating areas, garden with raised beds, fruit trees, bocce ball court, putting green, level lawn, fire pit and outdoor shower - all centered around the home’s covered saltwater pool and spa.
In addition to the home’s five bedrooms, the flexible floor plan contains a pool cabana with full bath, finished attic space, and a bonus room with powder bath, perfect for home gym, private office or casual family room.
Environmental upgrades include oversized solar array that affords the homeowner virtually no annual electricity bill and 3 newly installed Tesla batteries that will provide uninterrupted off-grid power in the event of PG&E power outages including an 80 amp Tesla car charger.
Tucked in Lafayette’s desirable Burton Valley neighborhood, residents enjoy easy access to the Lafayette-Moraga bike trail, Buckeye Fields, local swim clubs, hiking trails, and top-rated Lafayette and Acalanes School District schools. To top it off, the home is located 10 minutes from Downtown Lafayette, BART, Hwy24/680 and only a 24-mile drive to San Francisco.
