The painterly composition of this home’s exterior—with graceful architectural lines, soft-hued brick, bay windows, and a columned portico, all framed by fluttering aspen trees and custom landscaping — perfectly sets the tone for the entire property. A skillful design inside provides an easy, spacious, ranch-style layout. There’s also ample room on this huge lot to enjoy a glorious backyard patio surrounded by a lush lawn; pine, willow and shade trees; and attractive, irrigated landscaping. Back inside, the main level has contemporary, tasteful finishes, from the extensive hardwood floors to the rich-grained kitchen cabinets, vaulted ceilings and picture windows. A generous primary suite on the main floor has a large soaking tub and a spacious walk-in closet. The large, bright study will delight remote workers and those with hobbies. Two more large bedrooms are on the main floor (with California Custom Closets in each) and they share a Jack and Jill bathroom. Downstairs is one of the best basement layouts we’ve seen, with a central, round bar at its heart for epic entertaining, plus an exercise room, bedroom and bath. This impressive estate is tucked into a quiet neighborhood near the border of Lafayette and Erie, with a community pool, tennis courts, miles of trails, and mountain views from Erie Lake.
