In a modern interpretation of the Arts & Crafts-style homes of Berkeley and Rockridge, this exquisite 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath two-story home offers a thoughtful floor plan, picture-perfect outdoor space for leisure and entertainment, and gorgeous natural surroundings in a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood. Located in Concord’s delightful Newhaven at Lime Ridge neighborhood, enjoy access to the miles of trails that criss-cross the scenic Lime Ridge Open Space. The home is also conveniently located just minutes from Pleasant Hill BART station, as well as first-rate schools, including De La Salle, Carondelet, St. Francis, and Seven Hills.
Ten-foot coffered ceilings, crown molding, and plantation shutters throughout the home create an elegant setting, while plenty of large windows and beautiful, chestnut-colored distressed hardwood floors add a dose of brightness and cheer. The home offers impressive entertaining spaces for any occasion: An elegant double-sided fireplace divides the formal living and dining rooms, and the abutting bar area is fully outfitted with a wall-mounted wine rack and brand-new Thermador wine refrigerator. For casual leisure, the family room boasts verdant backyard views through a wall of glass, a built-in entertainment center, and a striking two-sided corner fireplace.
The family room opens to a dining area and the kitchen, where wraparound hardwood cabinets complement the rich granite counters and granite backsplash with decorative tile inlay. Cooking is a joy with abundant counter space and storage -- plus an adjacent walk-in pantry -- as well as a suite of stainless steel appliances, including a new built-in Dacor refrigerator, new Dacor double ovens, a new Miele dishwasher, a Dacor wall microwave, and a Dacor five-burner range on the large island. The island completes the room, with a granite countertop, stainless steel sink, plenty of storage, and space for seating.
The expertly designed backyard integrates the built and natural environments for exquisite outdoor living and entertaining. A gorgeous vaulted pavilion -- accented by white beams and a tropical ceiling fan -- encompasses a welcoming seating area, featuring a stunning stone fireplace with a rustic wooden mantel and space for a large TV above. The broad stone patio stretches beyond the pavilion to span the length of the house, bordered by a sunny, level lawn. An enchanting pathway of stone steps leads through the grass, past the lush terraced garden, to a private seating area at the highest point in the yard, where you can take in the views of Mt. Diablo and the surrounding foothills while listening to the serenade of the multilevel waterfall below.
Each of the bedrooms is truly a sanctuary. The well-sized master bedroom features a lovely alcove for lounging; a huge walk-in closet with built-in storage; and an ensuite bathroom with a split double vanity that includes a makeup vanity, a luxurious soaking tub, and a spacious glass-encased shower. Down the hall from the master, two bright secondary bedrooms offer broad views of the backyard, large closets, and a shared Jack and Jill bathroom with double vanity. The downstairs provides a lavish space for guests, with two bedrooms -- each with a walk-in closet -- a bathroom with double vanity, and a bonus seating area. This home’s pitch-perfect combination of grandeur and elegance with convenience and comfort makes it just as well-suited for hosting as it is for everyday living.
With a population greater than 120,000, and a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station offering commuting options to Oakland and San Francisco, Concord is a bustling city in Contra Costa County. Homes include those built in Craftsman, traditional, and contemporary styles. Shopping is plentiful, with three major shopping districts. Downtown Concord, near Todos Santos Plaza, offers a vibrant mix of dining and retail in the historic area. Concord Pavilion's open, grassy amphitheater hosts popular bands and artists. A summer series of music events brings local artists to the farmers' market downtown, now in its second decade at Todos Santos Plaza. Concord places a big emphasis on family, and the city offers plenty of parks and open space, as well as kid-friendly events like KidFest, Dalis Garden Fall Fest and Craft Fair, and Halloween contests. Concord is not far from Mount Diablo and its extensive network of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails. The popular Iron Horse Trail, which connects Concord and Dublin, is a great place to go for a walk or bike ride.
