Meadowside Place in Danville is a lovely cul de sac of individualized custom homes nestled on the border of Alamo. The exclusive gated community of West Briar Knolls II is walking or biking distance to the shops, restaurants, and Farmer’s Market of downtown Danville, and has excellent freeway accessibility. The delightful walking trail at the old Indian burial ground with its unobtrusive neighborhood access is another popular feature of this sought after community.
The custom built residence at 218 Meadowside Place consists of 2960 square feet (per appraiser’s measurement) located on a premium private .22 acre site nestled at the very end of the cul de sac, well insulated from both traffic and freeway noise, and fronting and backing up to open space, with ample guest parking. The home was built in 1995, and has been beautifully maintained by its original owners, both inside and out, with a fabulous professionally landscaped yard and free form pool and spa.
