Everyone appreciates the unique qualities and beauty of a west side Danville property. Walking distance to a variety of stores, quaint boutiques, charming cafes and fine dining, this particular property — which is coming soon — is also tucked in a quiet, park-like setting, a peaceful sanctuary on a cul-de-sac location with giant oaks and mature trees.
The 1.24-acre property at 226 Montego Drive wraps around an almost 4,200-square-foot, two-story home with light-filled and updated spacious rooms. Four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms include a private, second-story master retreat and office.
Magnificent oak trees dot the landscape that was designed by Christopher Lines Design, (a former winning designer on HGTV’s “Landscapers’ Challenge”). Multiple venues have been created for play, entertaining and total relaxation. There is also plenty of room to add a pool, cabana, sports court, play structure and even a detached guest cottage.
The expansive patio and outdoor living room are anchored by a stone fireplace and two waterfalls. Another raised patio creates an intimate outdoor dining area. Beyond the sprawling lawn are decorative rock walls terracing the gently sloped hillside. Stone stairs connect the meandering pathways that traverse among the lush landscape and under the canopies of the oaks and shade trees.
A grand gated entrance to the property and driveway that encircles a mature shade tree and ivy-covered brick facade creates an inviting first impression.
Beyond the spacious foyer, with a double leaded-glass-paneled front door, are hardwood floors and columns defining a large dining room with a coffered ceiling and bay windows. The formal living room also has a coffered ceiling, gas fireplace with marble surround, and walls of picture windows and transoms. French doors from the dining and living rooms open to a private deck that extends the entertaining space out among the gardens.
The great room features a soaring vaulted ceiling and a wall of window sliders that welcome an abundance of natural light and frame the views of the backyard gardens and hillside. This spacious family room area has a fireplace with raised hearth and is open to an updated and stylish kitchen fit for multiple cooks. A large skylight makes this room very light and bright.
The kitchen features granite counters with tumbled stone backsplash and decorative accent tiles, island/breakfast bar and an additional serving island, lots of cabinetry, two sinks, walk-in pantry, and stainless appliances, including double ovens, wine refrigerator, and Bosch dishwasher. There is also a built-in workstation with a wall of built-in cabinetry and shelving.
A casual dining area has a built-in buffet, recessed lighting and sliding glass door to the backyard.
There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the main level. One bedroom is an ideal guest suite with full bathroom, mirrored closet doors and French door access to the backyard. Two additional bedrooms have crown molding, one has chair rail molding, and they both share a full bathroom with shower/tub combination and access to the backyard.
The second level is devoted to the luxurious master bedroom with a double-door entry, vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace, sitting room with bay window and new plush carpeting.
The master bath has a skylight, dual-sink vanity, brushed nickel fixtures, oversize jetted tub, glass brick walk-in shower and large walk-in closet with California Closet organizers.
Also upstairs is an office that would also make an ideal nursery, workout room, or art studio. This room has built-in cabinetry and a window seat and view windows on two sides.
Additional features include plans for an additional bedroom and bonus/game room, Bose outdoor speakers, a 1-year-young roof, an oversize three-car garage with epoxy flooring and extra storage, updated hot water heater and HVAC, hallway skylight, cedar floors in closets, fresh interior paint, and 3-year-young exterior paint.
The cul-de-sac location has easy access to Interstate 680 and top-rated schools in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District.
