This incredibly rare, private hillside retreat on 3+ acres - professionally remodeled in 2019 to high standards of quality and style - boasts a swimming pool and multiple cabanas for creating and building, a circular driveway, and yes, even a mountain biking practice course. If you want it all, you’ve found it here!
Taking advantage of its hillside perch, the home’s large dual-pane windows showcase pastoral views and welcome an abundance of natural light. The open floor plan combines living, dining and kitchen areas flowing gracefully together with clean, contemporary character. The kitchen features a six-burner professional range, large island with deep and wide stainless sink, ample cabinets, and quartz countertops - a chef’s dream! A large converted bonus room adjoins the kitchen, great for a rumpus, fitness, office, family room, or any combination thereof.
From the center foyer, an open staircase reveals a second floor wall of windows leading to a spacious deck offering fantastic sunset vistas – a terrific spot for morning coffee and evening stargazing. The large primary bedroom’s en suite with its fabulous stall shower, as well as the second full bath in the hallway, have been beautifully remodeled with high-end fixtures from Hansgrohe, Kohler and Toto. Three additional bedrooms upstairs make for a terrific floor plan for both family and flexibility.
This idyllic home set on 3.37 acres offers surprising privacy being so close to the city, with outdoor spaces encouraging growth and inspiration. A shady gazebo, swimming pool, raised planter beds, not to mention a setup to get your mountain biking groove on! No grape vines, though – not yet! There are literally acres awaiting your creativity.
And, right in Pinole Valley! One of Pinole’s best features is its optimal location, just a scant 20 minutes from both Berkeley and Orinda. Bucolic, yet so close to urban centers! One of the area’s jewels, Sobrante Ridge Preserve, with its prized hiking trails and epic bay views, is just a quick jaunt away. Closer still, Pinole Valley Park (and dog park) is a mere half mile down the road.
This is an exceptional opportunity – the home, the land, the location – in this case, “rare” really is an understatement. It’s a property you really need to see in person, so please reach out to Julie Durkee for more details and to schedule a showing at your earliest convenience.
