Superb sophistication describes this masterfully remodeled Atrium-model Eichler home in the Rancho San Miguel neighborhood of Walnut Creek. 

This stunning mid-century home is 1,742 sqft (per tax records) and consists of four sunny bedrooms with custom closet systems, and two full baths, complete with bespoke European vanities, Cifial fixtures, Villeroy+Boch sinks and toilets and Hakatai recycled glass tile.

The kitchen, at the heart of the home, is fitted with Bosch and Fisher+Paykel appliances, granite counters and high-end custom contemporary cabinetry.  It opens to an informal dining room, and flows out to the rear garden for larger gatherings or the open-air atrium for more intimate al fresco dining and entertaining.

The expansive family room supports California indoor/outdoor living via floor to ceiling glass and sliding doors.  The fireplace surround has been freshly updated and the room is equipped with mounts and wiring for centrally connected audio and visual components.  The adjacent bonus room provides an additional space for a home office, formal dining, or multi-purpose uses.

Functionally, this Eichler has been fitted with highly-efficient upgrades to reduce energy usage and environmental impact.  A foam roof and insulated interior walls helps to maintain the perfect temperature in both summers and winters, and a tankless boiler serves as the primary heating source for the in-floor radiant system as well as hot water for personal use. The large floor to ceiling glass walls, sliding doors,  and  standard-sized windows have all been upgraded to dual-pane tempered glass. Natural stone flooring is installed in a running-bond pattern throughout the living spaces, transitioning seamlessly to hardwood in the bedrooms.  

The front, side, and rear gardens have recently received an extensive transformation consisting of new landscaping, concrete and wood hardscapes, and improved drainage.  New retaining walls makes for perfect curb appeal in the front and incorporates built-in bench seating for the large, private back yard.  The hobby shed off of the bonus room is currently used as a microbrewery and there's even a veggie/herb garden for foodies. 

Don't miss the automated skylight in master bath, flush-mounted baseboards, and overall exceptional-quality workmanship throughout!

Please stop by the open house Sunday, October 28, 2012 from 1:00pm - 4:00pm or email me for more info.
