Life at the Pinnacle of Lafayette

Ascend through a forest and leave behind city hustle and bustle. This magnificent home offers commanding views of Mount Diablo and adjoins the Lafayette Reservoir open space and trails. The lot, with vineyard, is impeccably landscaped throughout.

Inside, the home has vaulted ceilings and custom finishes everywhere. Upstairs, the principal suite has a fireplace, sauna, steam shower, gym, and immense walk-in closet. Downstairs, a private entrance leads to guest quarters with a kitchen, living room, and wine cellar. Three offices offer ample workspace. The main kitchen flows gracefully in two directions, one to a great room, the other to the dining room and living room. Other features: solar panels; backup generator; security alarms and cameras; well water; hard-wiring for sound.

Three separate buildings complete the grounds: an equipped winery with a tasting area; a building with a full bath that can be used as a gym or guest room; and a greenhouse. This estate is an incomparable idyllic retreat.

About The Area

Lafayette is known for its beautiful rolling hills, great schools, and family-orientated living. It has several distinct, picturesque, tree-lined neighborhoods, sports playing fields, a community center offering activities for all ages, a pristine reservoir offering hiking and boating, and even a paved bike/pedestrian trail linking many neighborhoods with shopping and schools. What sets Lafayette apart and creates its special energy and vibe, is the downtown area, with older established downtown housing now supplemented by newer, residential developments. Neighbors meet and mingle at several community events along the tree-lined boulevard each year from the Art and Wine Festival to the Res Run Education. The city's focus on "walkability" means residents can stroll, walk, or bike throughout the day and evening to enjoy the mix of world-class restaurants and retail, and take advantage of the energy in the heart of Lafayette. Located on 15 square miles in Contra Costa County, Lafayette sits between Berkeley and Walnut Creek. Known for its high-ranking schools and low crime rate, Lafayette exudes small-town charm with fine dining, entertainment, and a thriving arts and culture scene. This jewel of a community is tucked away, off an easily accessed freeway and BART station, connecting the small town to the big city in just a few short minutes.
