Enjoy brand-new amenities nestled in the heart of a peaceful family-oriented neighborhood in this charming, completely renovated California rancher. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home boasts a well designed open floor plan and all new fit, finish, and features with no detail overlooked— from the durable HardiePlank exterior siding to the luxurious dual shower in the master bath. 

 

Throughout the home, dark engineered hardwood floors border crisp white molding and walls — complemented by elegant navy accent walls — to create clean lines and a warm yet sophisticated feel. Vaulted ceilings and plenty of natural light pouring in through skylights and all new dual-pane Andersen windows make the space feel bright and open. In the living and dining room at the home’s entrance, exposed beams, recessed lighting, and stylish light fixtures make it an impressive area to welcome and entertain guests. Through the kitchen, the family room offers a cozier, more casual living space for playing and relaxing. 

 

The gleaming kitchen features Shaker cabinets, glistening quartz countertops, and white subway tile backsplash. The deep barn sink, suite of stainless steel LG appliances, and ample counter space make cooking a joy, while direct views into the living room, family room, and front and back yards keep you connected to the rest of the family’s activities. Adjacent to the kitchen, a huge laundry room offers abundant storage and counter space, plus a large sink and LG washer and dryer. 

 

Through sliding glass doors, the kitchen leads directly to a spacious courtyard, made for outdoor dining and entertaining. The centerpiece of the courtyard is a nearly 40-year old producing and delicious champage table grapevine — perfect for the hobbyist vintner, or simply to be admired and enjoyed as a unique vintage gem. The courtyard is bordered by attractive, low-maintenance landscaping and a level lawn area. A sprawling wraparound lawn in the front yard provides even more space to run and play, and is entirely fenced in for peace of mind. Car enthusiasts will love the attached, 810 sq. ft 4-car tandem garage, with an extra tall opening and an additional garage door that opens to the backyard. 

 

Located in Walnut Creek’s lovely Larkey Park neighborhood, this home is just steps away from the Lindsay Wildlife Experience, Briones to Mount Diablo Trail, and Larkey Park, with its playground, serene green space, public swimming pool, and tennis, basketball, and sand volleyball courts. On the same block, the quaint neighborhood Larkey Market offers snacks, craft beer, and delicious handmade sandwiches. Despite the area’s quiet and tranquility, this home is just minutes from freeway access, Walnut Creek and Pleasant Hill BART stations, and premium shopping, dining, and entertainment options in downtown Walnut Creek and Pleasant Hill.

Neighborhood

Walnut Creek, with its close proximity to Oakland and Mount Diablo, provides access to a vibrant downtown full of chic shops, quality schools, and good job opportunities at East Bay high-tech companies. Homes feature sprawling lots, more than three bedrooms, and are built in Mediterranean, traditional, and contemporary styles. Shopping abounds in Walnut Creek's Broadway Plaza, an open-air regional shopping mall in the heart of downtown. This popular commercial district combines small boutiques with upscale shopping experiences at Coach and Nordstrom. Dining at Bradley Ogden's famed Lark Creek and the Walnut Creek Yacht Club or enjoying the Walnut Creek Wine Walk is part of the downtown experience. The Lesher Center for the Arts is the cultural center of Walnut Creek and presents hundreds of events each year — including musicals by local theater groups, and concerts by Diablo Symphony Orchestra and the Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra. Walnut Creek’s 15 parks feature picnic areas, dog parks, and soccer fields. A skate park serves the city’s skateboarders, and the Butterfly Habitat Gardens in Civic Park is home to bring 25 species of butterflies and more than 100 species of California plants.
