Idyllically sited for equal parts convenience and connection to nature, Ivy Drive lies just off Moraga Road, a conduit to everywhere. This three-bedroom, two bath airy sanctuary sits elegantly elevated above Ivy Drive, also near Orinda’s renowned schools, elementary through high school.
Floor-to-ceiling glass illuminates the open-plan living area and showcases a backdrop of hillscapes. Merging visually and physically with outdoor surroundings, the living room’s broad glass doors open to a deck that wraps around it, exalting indoor-outdoor entertaining and everyday enjoyment. The main entry, kitchen-adjacent, opens level in and out, further extending living space to a garden-outlined paver-stone courtyard for al fresco dining, sun worshipping and star gazing.
Graced with lofty ambiance, the interior’s single-level layout is tented throughout by a wood-beam vaulted ceiling awash in white. Under foot, variable-width hardwood floors harmonize with natural stone flooring in the kitchen and bathrooms. A polished space, the kitchen’s dappled granite in striking ebony integrates with stainless appliances, including a wine refrigerator and double ovens. A peninsula forms a gathering place for joining the chef around a Dacor five-burner gas cooktop, and, stretching toward the dining area, provides a well-placed buffet. Within the living room, the airy aesthetic is complemented by a fireplace nook at one end that forms an intimate space.
An open arrangement of the kitchen-living-dining triad affords easy interaction between dwellers and guests, while bedrooms, along a separate corridor that may be closed, are granted privacy. Bedrooms are endowed with expansive closets, the master suite with two, plus en suite bathroom.
