About 74 Yarrow Valley Lane

This Mediterranean classic offers incomparable privacy just minutes from Orinda Village. An inlaid stone walkway, through a garden of roses, succulents, and ferns, leads through the front door to a spectacular, twenty-foot domed rotunda. From there, ascend a spiral staircase, configured with white oak, imported tile, and a hand-sculpted wrought-iron railing. Four spacious bedrooms comprise the second floor, accompanied by a conveniently located laundry room. The principal suite features a new, wood-burning marble fireplace, and its bathroom includes twin sinks, a Jacuzzi bath, a separable marble shower, and an African slate floor. A deck off the second bedroom offers a deck and pathway into the elegant gardens. Downstairs, the home is built for entertainment, indoors and out. The living room’s vaulted, wood-beamed ceiling is striking, and the new wood-burning fireplace provides relief from any winter chill. The formal dining room sits adjacent, adorned with arched oak windows. The living room leads inside to the kitchen area (with custom tile counters) and the family room. Outside, a glass-enclosed sun room enjoys serene views of surrounding redwoods, oaks, hillsides (which are protected open space), and a rose garden. A fifth bedroom (which could be configured as an office) is conveniently accessible to the living area. Further downstairs, a large playroom/game room offers a built-in entertainment center, and a naturally cooled wine cellar sits adjacent, capable of accommodating more than 1,000 bottles. The three-car garage offers a charging station for electric vehicles. Outside, the swimming pool is certain to be the center of activity in the summer months: The pool features a swim-up marble bar with bench seating in the water for beverages and conversation, and a built-in gas barbecue and deck lie nearby. Whatever the season, this Mediterranean jewel offers the best of Orinda living.
