744 Augusta Drive (Recently Sold)

Ideally situated on the 5th green and 6th tee of the sought-after Moraga Country Club, 744 Augusta has been beautifully renovated by its architect/owner to maximize the best of design and functionality. This inviting 2079 square foot home (per assessor record) features three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The exceptional outdoor living space includes the sunny front courtyard and the stunning new Ipe deck with bench seating, surrounded by gardens and backing to the golf course.

It is immediately evident from the winding path leading through an arched trellis to the stone courtyard that much thought has been invested in creating a warm living space, both indoors and out. The front entry leads to the dramatic living room, with vaulted ceiling, fireplace with raised brick hearth, and sliding door to deck. An attractive curved wall segues to the formal dining room, featuring extensive lighted built-in cabinetry, recessed lighting, and sliding door to deck. The updated kitchen incorporates innovative angles to create a wonderful space for cooking and entertaining. The chef will appreciate the convertible gas cooktop, built-in microwave/convection oven, and new refrigerator. The kitchen has a pass-through to the sunny breakfast area. With its attractive bay window, window seat, and built-in lighted storage unit, this is the ideal spot for morning coffee or relaxing with a good book. An updated powder room with tile floor completes this level.

Upstairs, the well-designed upgrades continue. The loft landing is a wonderful office, thanks to a corner desk and extensive lighted bookshelves and cabinetry. With a view of the golf course, vaulted ceiling, and decorative wood moldings, the master bedroom is an airy private retreat. The sky-lit walk-in closet has recessed lighting and cedar wood floor. The beautifully renovated en suite master bathroom boasts a vanity with marble counter, tile floor, skylight, and elegant shower with a heavy frameless glass door. The second bedroom is bright and sunny and has a large closet. Reached by walkway, the third bedroom (or bonus room/gym) has a huge walk-in closet as well as an innovative designer bathroom with shower, discretely housed behind adjacent doors. The two sliding doors opening onto a large balcony as well as the high ceiling create a sense of volume in this versatile space.

The unusually large back yard is perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining. The new Ipe wood deck with spectacular night lighting offers bench seating and leads to a spacious stone patio. Beyond, a lush level lawn and flower beds beckon. Although well-situated on the golf course, the yard retains a sense of tranquility and privacy.

The amenities of the Moraga Country Club are unparalleled. Enjoy two separate nine hole golf courses, lighted tennis courts, a large central swimming pool as well as a convenient satellite pool (located immediately adjacent), the gorgeous new club house with restaurant, and attractive green belt winding throughout. 744 Augusta offers a truly exceptional opportunity to live in a distinctive designer home while enjoying the resort lifestyle of one of the area’s most sought-after communities.
