About 4136 Canyon Road

This spectacular estate, though just minutes from downtown Lafayette, commands priceless views of Mount Diablo, Happy Valley, and surrounding oak- and redwood-covered hillsides.

A gated entrance from a private road leads down a cobblestone private driveway through mature oaks to the secluded estate on 2.4 (+/-) lush acres. A handcrafted ten-foot Antigua door beckons one into the 6,970 (+/-) square feet of luxurious living space. The entry rotunda lies under a twenty-foot ceiling, and a dramatic, semicircular wrought-iron staircase leads upward. Four bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bath, are accessed from the living area at the top of the stairs. The principal suite features a sitting area, adjacent den/nursery, fireplace, custom bath (featuring a large shower with three shower heads) and Jacuzzi, and two large walk-in closets with custom cabinetry. That suite offers commanding views over the landscaped gardens below (with meandering walking paths throughout) of Happy Valley and Mount Diablo to the east. French doors open to a library/office featuring mahogany cabinetry and accents under a coffered ceiling, and shuttered windows offer views of the backyard and pool. The LG-equipped laundry is conveniently located near the bedrooms.

Downstairs, custom cabinetry, spacious granite island and countertops, and limestone backsplashes adorn the gourmet kitchen, which adjoins a walk-in pantry, separate butler’s pantry, and a Tuscan one-thousand plus bottle wine cellar. The kitchen features Miele, Sub-Zero, Viking, and Bosch appliances, including two dishwashers. Adjacent is a spacious breakfast nook, offering 180-degree views of oaks, hillsides, and Mount Diablo. Beautiful white oak, rift-sawn floors, inlaid with Santos Mahogany hardwood, flow from the kitchen into the spacious formal dining room. Coffered ceilings provide architectural flair. Recessed lighting, or splashes of summer-evening daylight from the bay of semicircular windows, make this room a favorite for entertaining. The gracious formal living room has as its focal point a fireplace and elegant mantle. Windows display the surrounding lush landscaping and views beyond. At the other side of the kitchen, the Great Room (with fireplace) offers views of the backyard and swimming pool. An au pair/guest bedroom with full bath also is on this level, along with two powder rooms. An entertainment/billiard room, with beautiful inlaid hardwoods, completes the first floor, just steps away from the outdoor entertainment area, featuring a sport court, the pool, Jacuzzi, outdoor fireplace (under a pergola), and outdoor kitchen with a DCS grill.

Two two-car garages and the driveway area provide ample parking. Nearby, a high-capacity generator provides power during any emergency; three air conditioning units assure protection against summer heat, and a private well augments the irrigation system.

This estate exemplifies elegant Happy Valley living.
