This unbelievable estate property has never been on the market in its 70 years. The spectacular 1.1 acre private setting is the hidden jewel of Orinda’s most sought after street: the exclusive semi circle of lower Van Ripper Lane in the heart of Sleepy Hollow. Meander down a long private driveway to discover the classic one level mid-century modern home that has been beautifully restored in a contemporary reimagining that showcases the grandeur of the original architecture and enhances it with the finest of today’s accoutrements. Walls of glass overlook a magical setting with a spectacular expansive private patio opening to cascading lawns, beautiful flowering gardens, towering oak trees and a sparkling pool. The sun-flooded home features lofty ceilings, French white oak flooring, and state of the art kitchen anchored by a huge central island and boasting top quality Thermidor appliances and honed quartzite countertops. The primary suite has a luxurious spa like bathroom with oversized shower and adjoining dressing/wardrobe area. In addition to the main house with its five beautifully appointed bedrooms, five renovated bathrooms, and spacious study with generous built-ins (possible sixth bedroom?), there is a “bonus” 255 square foot (per owner measurement) poolside cabaña and bathroom. Additional storage and hobby space is found in a spacious detached workshop and adjacent storeroom.  A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
