A magical treehouse retreat! Imagine coming home to this private oasis in the hills. Situated on a quiet cul de sac, 5 Madrone Place channels a Mendocino vibe while offering all the benefits of a prime Orinda location. Despite being just minutes from downtown Orinda, with its restaurants, shopping, and theater, as well as BART and commute access, this home feels like vacation year-round. This is a diamond in the rough, awaiting your TLC to make it shine.
The dramatic living room features a two-story soaring ceiling with floor to ceiling windows, to take in the panoramic vistas of surrounding oak-studded hills. With a fireplace and wet bar and sliding door to the private deck, this is a prime entertaining space for intimate evenings with friends or large celebratory gatherings. There are also two bedrooms on this level, both sunny and bright, with lovely views. A cheerful bathroom with tiled combination tub/shower and a convenient laundry closet complete this wing.
Upstairs, on the entry level, the kitchen and dining room areas are also bathed in light and enjoy panoramic views. The kitchen has ample storage and opens to the dining room. This level hosts the third bedroom as well as a full bathroom with tiled combination tub/shower. The home totals 1631 square feet of living space, and is sited on .41 acres.
If you are tired of looking at cookie cutter suburban ranch houses, but want to take advantage of top-rated Orinda schools and the benefits of this lovely community, then you have discovered the perfect place to call home!
