A short drive up the hill from downtown Orinda leads to this welcoming retreat. Expect to spend countless hours in the back yard and hot tub, enjoying the striking views. Working from home is easy in the hillside ADU, itself offering panoramic views. Inside, the home offers 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Enter the home through a spacious living room, leading to a well-appointed kitchen featuring granite counters. The kitchen leads to the dining area and family room, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows to showcase the back yard and views beyond. The principal bedroom has a renovated en-suite bathroom, and offers pastoral views. Two other bedrooms and a renovated hallway bathroom complete the wing, and a room adjacent to the family room can be configured as a sitting room or fourth bedroom. Mature trees and foliage abound. The home is just 3 minutes from downtown Orinda, but perched above and a world apart from life’s stresses and strains.
