Palo Alto Place is a peaceful cul de sac, ideally located free from the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic, yet in close proximity to shopping, transportation, and the beautiful Contra Costa Country Club golf course. Children attend well regarded Valhalla Elementary School. Even though the home is only twenty-eight years old, the long time owners of the attractive residence at 569 Palo Alto have devoted much time, energy, and resources into lovingly renovating and maintaining their property. The home is situated on one of the most sought after sites in the area, a 6270 square foot lot which combines privacy, views, and extensive level land. The 1686 square foot residence seems considerably larger because of the soaring ceilings in the public areas and in the bedrooms.
The dramatic living room has a floor to ceiling brick fireplace with a gas powered insert that provides considerable heat for energy conservation. A whimsical lighting fixture, vaulted ceiling, and plantation shutters complete this inviting space. The adjacent formal dining area has a sliding door to the yard. The sunny kitchen has been beautifully updated with expansive corian counters, quality appliances, and recessed lighting. There is a convenient pantry and special corner pullouts in the cabinetry. The roomy breakfast area has built-in cabinetry and a sliding door to the patio and yard. A well-appointed powder room and laundry room complete the ground level of the home.
A broad staircase leads to the second story. The master bedroom has a lovely view, renovated bathroom, and a roomy walk-in closet. The two additional bedrooms also have high ceilings and closets with built-ins. All the bedrooms have the same designer plantation shutters as the public rooms. An attractively updated bathroom serves the two secondary bedrooms. All the bathrooms in the residence have high end low flow toilets.
The two car garage is accessible from the residence and has built-in shelving and a sectional garage door with remote openers. Additionally, the home has a security alarm system, twelve year old fire retardant composition shingle roof, and eight year old forced air heating and central air conditioning. The current owners have replaced all the interior doors and the exterior windows and doors with quality dual pane.
The gorgeous front and back yards have been professionally landscaped with extensive lawn and flowering gardens. The home is well designed for easy indoor/outdoor flow to readily enjoy the beautiful private outdoor area. The property is on automatic timed sprinkler for ease of maintenance, and the back yard is fully fenced. The landscaping has been created and meticulously maintained by a talented English gardener and the efforts of its owners.
In all, this exceptionally well appointed residence, with its beautiful ambiance and numerous amenities, is ideally suited for gracious entertaining, both indoors and out, as well as functional day to day family living.
