Finally an opportunity to experience the Orinda lifestyle in a home that is not “just another rancher.” This delightful single level residence lives like an estate, with an amazing private .98 acre setting. The 1287 square foot home features vaulted ceilings and expansive windows from which to enjoy the serene views. Just minutes from shopping, and commute routes, but with a sense of a country retreat, 135 Crestview is truly a gem. Additionally, the home is in close proximity to twelve years of top-rated schools: Del Rey Elementary (just honored nationally as a “Blue Ribbon” School- the only Orinda elementary school to receive this coveted designation); Orinda Intermediate; and Miramonte High (within the Acalanes school district- ranked #1 in the state).
The inviting living room features a vaulted ceiling, hardwood floor, built-in bookshelves, a traditional stone fireplace with wood mantel, and a sliding door to the deck. The cheerful kitchen beckons with white cabinetry, tile counters, hardwood floor, and recessed lighting. It opens conveniently to the sitting/eating area, which has a sliding door for easy access to the rear yard.
With the feel of a charming B&B, the master bedroom has a wall of windows with plantation shutters, overlooking the pastoral view. The en suite updated bathroom is a delight, featuring Provence-style tile work in the shower and counters, and two sinks. The front bedroom also has hardwood flooring and is conveniently located near the hall bathroom, with a pedestal sink, tiled combination tub/shower, and skylight.
Additional amenities include a three car garage (with accommodation for laundry inside garage), central heat and air conditioning, dual pane windows throughout. The natural setting features majestic oak trees, decking, and potential garden areas, making this a low maintenance yard, yet easy to enjoy. This one-of-a-kind home is truly a find – ready to move in and enjoy, with unparalleled tranquility, convenience, and privacy.
