The epitome of Northern California living, 271 Lark Avenue is nestled in a gated community of Alamo, California, surrounded by rolling hills and towering trees, with all the conveniences and amenities of the modern luxury lifestyle. Newly renovated in 2016, with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms in the main house, and approximately 4,790 square feet, this beautiful home also includes a separate detached living area of 880 square feet, for a total of 5,670 square feet of glorious living space.
Approach this property from a private road through an extended driveway, to a dramatic front entryway which immediately exudes a sophisticated charm. Large pillars frame the house, highlighted by twinkling wrought-iron light fixtures, which lead to the massive wrap around covered deck. Enter through the oversized front door to the elegant foyer ordained with a sweeping staircase, and observe the open floorplan, drenched with natural light and soaring ceilings.
A total of five sets of French doors throughout the lower level alone solidify the indoor to outdoor atmosphere, with backyard access available from the living room, dining room, family room and kitchen. Four stately pillars outline the living room with granite facing fireplace, and the dining room with chic chandelier and two sets of French doors. The gorgeous open concept kitchen offers a large center island with bar seating and sink, ornate marble counters which continue to the butler’s pantry, subway tiling, and a La Cornue oven. Banquette seating provides a more casual dining option, complete with artistic wrought iron chandelier, while the family room just off the kitchen offers a second granite fireplace, and access to the back patio. A large bedroom with walk-in closet and private access to a guest bathroom, as well as an additional laundry room complete this first floor.
The kitchen offers a second set of stairs leading to the upper level living quarters, where a spectacular bonus room with vaulted ceiling and fireplace provides the ultimate space for relaxation. Down the hall is a bedroom and separate bath, as well as two large bedrooms, both with window seating and private balcony access, connected by a Jack-n-Jill bathroom. The master suite is a private haven, offering a separate, sun-lit seating area, two massive walk-in closets, and a gorgeous bathroom with custom marble vanity, heated floors, Victoria & Albert tub, and steam shower with dual shower heads.
The expansive grounds of the property provide endless possibilities, surrounded by mature trees and hills, enclosed by a beautiful horizontal plank wood fence, and maintained by its own separate well water tank. Just under one acre of land, this backyard is ideal for outdoor entertaining and recreation.
Detached from the main house is a separate structure consisting of a three-car garage, and a huge in-law studio above. This studio maintains the modern feel of the main house, with vaulted ceilings, granite counters in the kitchen and bathroom, stainless steel appliances, free-standing hood, and dual pendant lights.
This incredible home is located just minutes to downtown Alamo shopping, trails, freeway access, and dining, and 30 minutes outside of San Francisco. Welcome to 271 Lark Lane, welcome home.
