$1,820,000· House (Recently Sold)

Tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac, 91 La Cuesta is a hidden gem. This classic mid-century home is being sold by the family of the original owners, who custom built it and lovingly tended and upgraded the property since 1958. The house reflects the collaboration of the couple – he was an engineer and she was an artist. With walls of windows, skylights, and gorgeous redwood details, the home is an extension of the magnificent natural setting. Spectacular views from every room include distant hills and the San Pablo reservoir. The spacious 2400+ sf include three bedrooms plus a versatile office/play room with built-in shelving, a large dining room off the kitchen (that could alternatively be used as a family room), and three full bathrooms. Don’t miss the large interior laundry/utility room just beyond the downstairs bedroom wing, as well as a stacked washer/dryer in the primary suite. The expansive .3 acre property offers multiple outdoor living spaces, including a broad deck off the living room and kitchen, a large patio ideal for al fresco dining, and a huge brick patio for entertaining or recreation… the site of multiple weddings over the years! The focal point of the property is the magnificent centuries old oak tree with its sculptural spreading limbs. The two car garage was converted to a versatile artist studio/office, with gas, electricity, water (provided in as/is condition and not included in square footage of home). Use your imagination to develop the potential of this bonus space.  The ideal location offers maximum privacy and serenity, with incredible views, while also being in close proximity to freeways, BART, and downtown Orinda shopping and restaurants, Picturesque Lake Cascade and the exclusive Orinda Country Club are minutes away. Children attend top-rated Orinda schools. This is a unique opportunity for a family seeking a forever home with character, charm and space to grow.
