This captivating 1.22 acre property, surrounded by magnificent oaks, occupies a prime site in the heart of the sought-after Country Club neighborhood of Orinda. This serene forested glade is private and quiet, yet is a short walk to Lake Cascade and only minutes from transportation, shopping, and top-rated Orinda schools.
The home at 50 Las Cascadas, 1480 square feet per assessor record, is being sold in its present as-is condition. The original 1928 bungalow has been creatively modified by the previous owner. This is an exciting opportunity to restore and expand this original home or create your dream home. Currently, a slate entry leads to both living room and family room. The family room has a natural stone fireplace with raised hearth, skylight, and French doors to the patio. The living room features a sliding door to the deck and gorgeous views. The adjacent dining room has two walls of windows, a skylight, and also opens to the deck. The kitchen has been modified, with slate floor, large center island with sink, gas cooktop, skylight, and French doors to the patio. There are two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. The master bedroom features a panoramic view, sliding door to deck, and high beamed ceiling. The main bathroom has dual sinks, stacked laundry, and natural stone shower. There is an additional bedroom/office retreat with a small half bathroom. The home’s hallmark is the incredible natural setting, with sliding doors opening to exquisitely serene and private patios and decks.
There is a large outdoor work area under the house, with a spacious unfinished deck. This is a truly one-of-a-kind property that fuels the imagination. The incredible natural surroundings would be difficult to duplicate in such close proximity to the idyllic town of Orinda. Ideal for an artist or anyone with an artistic soul, it is truly an environment to be cherished.
