3 Beds 2 Baths 1,982 Sq.Ft.


Mid-Century at its finest! This Roger Lee designed home is tucked into a small enclave of Mid-Mods in Orinda's 'Golden Triangle' (less than half a mile to elementary, middle and high schools!). An inspired re-design by Ward Young Architects in 2011 has wonderfully modernized the home, while keeping the essence of the original design very much intact. Formal living & dining rooms share a wall of windows looking out to the nature of the adjacent creek, where a grand old oak tree stretches its limbs and greenery back toward the house. A modern kitchen has a huge island with seating for 5, with induction range and floating hood above. There is a brand new dishwasher and new refrigerator, and wall ovens including upper convection oven. The kitchen is open to the family room, and again, nature pours in through 2 walls of windows. The primary bedroom has a large bathroom with dual sinks, separate shower and soaking tub, and a walk-in closet. Two more bedrooms are located off the family room, with a great drop zone built into the hallway. There is also a kid's play space or study area that serves as a transition to an outside living area and the detached 120 sq. ft. office beyond. Don't miss the finished garage - use for cars, or as another hang-out zone for movies or football.
