Property Description

PRICE IMPROVEMENT! Perched on a hillside in Castro Valley, this lovely home is a gardener’s delight. Soft grays and blond woods lend a relaxed, natural vibe to roomy interiors with glimpses of greenery from every window. An oversized living room is accented by a wood-burning fireplace and a charming bay window. From the informal dining room/kitchen, sliders open to a cozy deck ideal for enjoying morning coffee looking out over the bay. Bright white cabinets with gleaming concrete counters accent the brushed stainless finish of the appliances and fixtures. The main level also contains a primary bedroom with an abundance of storage, a sunny guest room and an ultra-modern hall bath featuring an oversized shower with a glass barn door. Downstairs, a second hall bath adjoins the family room, as well as two guest bedrooms and a cozy office. Lush outdoor spaces include gorgeous foliage, fruit-producing plum, orange, lemon and apricot trees and planter boxes for veggies and herbs. At the apex of this property, an open terrace allows you unfettered access to endless miles of gorgeous bay views. This home includes an income-producing studio apartment with a full kitchen and full bath. Castro Valley is a thriving community, known for its sought-after school district and small-town feel.
