Originally built by the current owner in 1963 and lovingly maintained by the same family for over forty-five years, this delightful ranch-style home is situated on a beautiful half acre site in the sought after Glorietta neighborhood. The lot extends across the swale into the trees…like having a private nature preserve in your own back yard! The classic 2061 square foot home features a formal living room and dining room, expansive family room, four inviting bedrooms, two and one-half bathrooms and interior laundry room. There are gorgeous pastoral views from virtually every window. Tara Road is an ideal location for families – convenient to shopping, commute routes, BART, and top-rated Orinda schools (including Miramonte High School, in the number-one rated high school district in California).
With a sweeping circular drive and covered brick front porch, 84 Tara extends an immediate warm welcome. The tiled entry opens to the spacious living room, with a stone fireplace for winter evenings. The formal dining room has a sliding door to the deck and beautiful pastoral views. Light and cheerful, the kitchen features white cabinetry, Kitchenaid double oven and dishwasher, and a sunny breakfast nook with a Dutch door opening to the deck for al fresco dining. The family room is the perfect gathering place, with hardwood flooring, a large corner window, and a sliding door leading outside. Completing this wing of the house is the laundry room with sink and a half bathroom.
The bedroom wing has four bedrooms, including the master suite. The master offers two closets, a sliding door to the deck, serene views, and en suite bathroom with shower. The three secondary bedrooms all have hardwood flooring and are light and airy. There is a convenient hall bathroom with a combination tub/shower.
Ideal for the California lifestyle, the expansive deck is great for play or entertaining, and the perfect place to relax at the end of the day to enjoy the sunset. The idyllic back yard beckons with opportunity. The property extends beyond the small creek bed, allowing possibilities for play structures or gardening – or it can be enjoyed in its natural beauty. Additional features of the home include a two car garage with interior access and remote door openers, fresh paint both interior and exterior, central forced air heating. 84 Tara Road represents an exciting opportunity to personalize a home to make it truly your own.
