Located on a quiet cul-de-sac within walking distance of downtown, 1213 Clover Lane is a unique property, ideal for accommodating home office/au pair or multi generational family compound. The current owner, while living abroad, rented the three units for several years to three separate tenants. The units consist of a delightful updated single family home, a private upstairs studio, and a charming cottage. And these wonderful living spaces are all situated on a prime .3 acre level lot, close to fabulous Walnut Creek shopping and restaurants, top-rated Walnut Creek schools, and offering an easy commute.
Oozing curb appeal, the main house features a Southern-style front porch for relaxing in the shade and meeting the neighbors. Light and airy and freshly painted, the living room features a vaulted ceiling with recessed lighting, a cozy fireplace with gas logs, and two sets of French doors for enjoying the indoor/outdoor California lifestyle. Open to the living area, the tastefully updated kitchen offers granite counters, travertine floors, recessed and under-cabinet lighting, and ample cabinet space. For the chef, appliances include a Frigidaire Gallery self-cleaning range with convection oven capability and gas burners, as well as a stainless steel Frigidaire Gallery dishwasher. The lovely master bedroom is truly a private retreat, with high ceiling, sliding door to the deck, recessed lighting, and two closets with built-ins. The en suite spa bathroom has been beautifully updated with travertine floor and tiled combination tub/shower. With three large windows, the spacious front bedroom is sunny and welcoming and has mirrored closet doors. Currently used as an office, the potential third bedroom is a versatile room that opens both to the bedroom hallway and the living room. The main bathroom also boasts travertine floor and a tiled combination tub/shower as well as granite countertop. Conveniently located, the laundry room has a stacked washer/dryer, extensive cabinetry, a sink, and a door to the yard. Accessed from both the living room and the master bedroom, the expansive low maintenance composite deck is ideal for entertaining, al fresco dining, or just relaxing on a summer afternoon.
The upstairs studio is a delightful “tree house.” Spacious and light, with its own private deck and views of the lush yard, this space has been well outfitted with a large closet with extensive built-ins, and a sleek kitchen area, including under-counter refrigerator/freezer and built-in microwave. The inviting updated bathroom features travertine flooring and a shower. At the rear of the yard, the cottage is approached via a secluded patio with built-in bench seating. A glass door provides entry to the charming space, with vaulted ceiling and mirrored closet doors. The alcove kitchen includes an LG refrigerator/freezer, two burner cooktop, travertine floor, and slate counters. The travertine flooring continues into the updated compartmented bathroom, with a combination tub/shower. The Fujitsu heating and cooling unit provides efficient temperature control.
The outdoor paradise, with winding paths, is equally well-suited for a large cocktail party, a game of croquet on the lawns, or an afternoon of relaxing in the shade. Dominated by a gorgeous towering palm tree, the exceptionally well-landscaped gardens feature many specimen trees and fruit trees, as well as private spaces for each of the living units. The second cottage, currently used for storage, could also serve as an artist studio, home office, or exercise room. The oversized double/tandem drive-through garage, attached to the main house, has extensive built-in cabinetry and a second washer/ dryer. There is also off-street parking for at least 4 vehicles. Additional features of the property include recent new roof, newer HVAC systems, on-demand hot water, automatic sprinkler system. This incredible property, with all its possibilities, presents an unparalleled opportunity in a prime Walnut Creek neighborhood!
