This single-level midcentury home is a nature lover’s dream come true. Filled with natural light throughout the daytime, this Atrium-style Eichler house luxuriates in views of bird of paradise plants and the other lush nature it is surrounded by.
The home’s extremely functional floor plan allows for easy indoor-outdoor living and makes fantastic use of its invitingliving and entertainment spaces, both inside and out. Located in the Upper Lucas Valley, it is only a stone’s throw away from Big Rock Deli, countless hiking and biking trails as well as Sonoma, Southern Marin and San Francisco.
In addition to the generous living spaces and open plan kitchen, the home accommodates four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Inside, crisp white paint on the walls and ceilings brighten up the formal living and dining rooms. High ceilings and walls of glass further increase the openness of the interior spaces while providing views over the courtyard and atrium.
Outside, a fully-gated backyard with a large lawn and a built-in barbecue, refrigerator and fireplace offer a lovely setting for leisure and entertainment with friends and family. Impressive redwood and a seasonal creek beyond certainly don’t hurt when it comes to establishing an idyllic and homey atmosphere.
The design of this home clearly favors food-friendly get-togethers. Back inside, the sophisticated chef’s kitchen is equipped with high end Dacor cooking appliances and a sink, eat-in bar, stainless steel appliances as well as a walk-in pantry.
In addition to the outdoor barbecue setup, the kitchen inside welcomes larger dinner parties or cosy nights over a meal with the family. A smaller breakfast nook is perfect for busy mornings and quick meals during the weekdays.
The light and simple, down to earth palette consists of white, light grey and natural wood and runs consistently throughout the home. While the common areas are inviting and open, the private quarters offer plenty of privacy. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and a large, modern shower.
Two additional bedrooms have their own mirrored closet doors and share a bath. These bedrooms are thoughtfully situated away from the public spaces, and a fourth bedroom, which opens to the private atrium, functions as a guest bedroom, home office, or gym.
In addition to built-in storage, a peg wall and removable gym flooring (used for cars or as multipurpose space for crafty pastime activities), the attached space also features a garage with spots for two cars. Other features of this single-level home include dual-paned windows, foam roof, radiant flooring and air conditioning.
