Set far back off the road, occupying a prime .42 acre site, this stylish updated farmhouse offers idyllic country living. With a sought-after 2680 square foot open floor plan, flooded with light, the home features fabulous indoor-outdoor flow. The location is close to major commute arteries, and children attend top-rated Lafayette schools, including Springhill Elementary, just minutes away. With delightful Brookwood Park just down the street, 3275 Withers is well-situated for everyone in the family.
The broad level drive serves dual roles as basketball court and guest parking. A winding brick pathway flanked by green lawns leads to the inviting covered entry porch. Inside, the expansive great room beckons, with vaulted beamed ceiling and a wall of windows overlooking the lush gardens and offering views of Mt. Diablo in the distance. The adjacent sleek kitchen has been tastefully updated, with sparkling white cabinetry, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen flows seamlessly to the high-ceilinged family room, with its wood-burning stove for cozy winter evenings. The convenient laundry area off the kitchen is situated steps from a door leading to the back yard, so that children can easily shed muddy clothes as they enter.
A private master suite affords a romantic respite from day-to-day activities. Its vaulted beamed ceiling mirrors those in the rest of the house, and even the most avid collectors will be thrilled with the storage possibilities – a spacious walk-in closet as well as two additional well-appointed closets with sliding doors. The master suite has its own heating/AC unit. The master bathroom has been tastefully updated, with ample storage cabinets, two sinks, and a tiled shower.
Three additional inviting bedrooms are located in a private wing, with two having high beamed ceilings and one featuring a large walk-in closet. The renovated hall bathroom has a combination tub/shower with attractive tile surround. Off the great room, there is a charming guest bathroom with a pedestal sink. The small adjacent room could serve as a private office space, with windows overlooking the front garden.
Truly an entertainer’s paradise, the outdoor area is amazing. A spacious patio flows easily from the great room, with ample space for a large group to dine al fresco. Broad level lawns suggest croquet or volleyball, while the play structure beckons the younger children. Down a gravel path, the pool is easily accessible, yet occupies its own space. Additional features of the home include a two car garage with remote door opener, central heating/air conditioning, dual pane windows. This is an incredible property…it is indeed rare to find in Lafayette a level half acre with a view of Mt. Diablo! With the rustic feel of a country farmhouse, coupled with the best of today’s amenities, 3275 Withers will provide the backdrop for many joyous family occasions.
