Inviting Lafayette Valley Estates Traditional
Situated on a tree lined street in the highly desirable Lafayette Valley Estates neighborhood, in a super convenient location, sits this wonderful single-level ranch home that offers gracious living indoors and out! This highly-regarded neighborhood is desirable not only for its scenic setting, but for its close proximity to the Lafayette/Moraga trail, Lafayette Community Park and sports fields, and the Lafayette Community Center. The neighborhood also provides access to the acclaimed Lafayette and Acalanes Unified School Districts and sits near commute routes to downtown Lafayette, Hwy 24, and the Lafayette BART station.
Constructed in 1951, the easy living floor plan includes 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 1,097+/- square feet of living space on a mostly flat .23 +/- acre parcel. This charming home offers the perfect blend of casual living space and the seamless indoor/outdoor living making it a true entertainer’s delight. This home exudes California Living!
The kitchen has been updated with newer-soft close cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and includes a gas cooktop, quartz countertops, wood flooring, and recessed lighting. Functional touches included a custom workstation with built-in shelving and drawers. The kitchen window directly overlooks the large rear patio, lawn and play area. Just off the kitchen are the living room and dining area. This area is highlighted by wood flooring, a brick fireplace, and a large sliding glass door that floods the room with a ton of natural light and overlooks the park-like yard.
This magnificent yard includes a large pergola covered patio, a pancake flat lawn area, and a custom built playhouse. The large flat backyard area is perfect for play or hosting large gatherings. In addition there is a side yard with raised planter beds for your vegetable garden. The yard is a true extension of the home and enjoys mature landscaping and privacy.
Additionally, as many others have done in the neighborhood, the large front and rear yards provide plenty of space to expand the home.
The front covered porch is a perfect spot to sit and relax and greet your friends and neighbors. There are so many areas in which to entertain...this is a home where friends and family will gather to enjoy both the home and the setting in which it sits.

Low on density and high on greenery, Lafayette offers rolling hillsides, excellent schools, and an easy commute to Oakland and San Francisco thanks to the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station in the town center. The Happy Valley area features meandering country roads and showplace estate homes perched on large hillside parcels that offer panoramic views of the valley. Mediterranean, English, and French Country architecture populate the landscaped neighborhoods. Lafayette’s central business district offers quality shopping and dining for locals and visitors alike. Restaurants such as Artisan Bistro, Chevalier, and Metro Lafayette are thriving. For those seeking old-fashioned comfort food, Millie’s Kitchen is a popular breakfast and brunch restaurant with large portions and modest prices. Lafayette Reservoir is open year-round for boating, fishing, picnicking, and hiking. After a long day on the water, locals head to The Roundup Saloon, a throwback to the days of rowdy roadhouses.
