457 Dalewood Dr, Orinda, CA 94563

This modern farmhouse is located in the heart of sought-after Orinda Downs. It rests on a knoll overlooking Dalewood, arguably the preeminent street in the Downs. The lot, nearly a full acre, is one of the biggest in the community, and mature redwoods and oaks surround the flat back yard and assure privacy. The home offers 5 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and 2 half baths over 3,400 (mostly hardwood-covered) square feet. Distinguished crown moulding makes the ceilings distinctive. The gourmet kitchen has spacious NeoLith counters, island and top-of-the-line appliances (predominantly Viking), and sits adjacent to a breakfast nook with large windows showcasing the meticulous yard landscaping. The formal dining room has views to the garden as well. Fireplaces in the family room and living room assure warmth to overcome the winter chill. A bonus/game room completes the main level. The home is a short walk to Dalewood Park, and close to downtown Lafayette, Orinda and top-rated Orinda schools.
