Inspired Living 

51 Silverwood Drive is the perfect place to unwind, refresh, grow, and experience the tranquility offered in this private estate setting. This exceptional property is ready to enjoy as is or to use as a foundation from which to create your dream estate.

Sited on 1.33 acres in Lafayette, this private oasis is a feast for the senses. As you pass through the gated entrance, you hear the gates click closed behind you as you travel down the curved driveway defined by tall conifers.   On arrival, you find a home surrounded by stunning grounds.  There are majestic oaks, bay and redwood trees, meandering paths, a creek and bridge, outdoor lighting, and flat areas of retreat to discover.

The north-facing home, is renovated with high-end finishes, is ideally situated to take advantage of views, light, and contours of the land. It offers comfortable living on primarily one level while the second level provides additional amenities and living options.   

The main level includes an entry with walls of glass and views beyond, a living room with a fireplace, vaulted ceiling and skylights, a great room with eat-in chef’s kitchen, a large dining area, and family room.   Common area rooms open to an expansive deck flanking the entire view side of the home.  Also, on this level is one of two master suites, two additional bedrooms, a hall bathroom, a laundry room, access to a large side patio with adjoining dog run, and an attached two-car garage.

The lower level features the second master suite with a minibar, a distinctive bathroom with snow-white marble and a large standalone bathtub, an enormous walk-in closet, and a second laundry room.  The walk-in closet may be converted to an office or 5th bedroom with large sliding door to the deck.  The second master suite may also serve as a large family room, exercise room, separate guest quarters, or private sanctuary for your home office.  This level opens to a second expansive deck, flanking the entire view side of the home with easy access to the adjoining yard beyond.

There is room for an auxiliary structure, pool/spa, gazebo, raised vegetable/flower gardens, play structures, sports courts, and more.

The location is perfect. 51 Silverwood Drive is just east of the Caldecott Tunnel on Highway 24, approximately 20 miles from downtown San Francisco and 2.6 miles to the Orinda BART Station. It is close to award-winning schools, Tilden & Briones Regional Parks, the Lafayette Reservoir, local cafes, restaurants, shops, and Broadway shopping center in Walnut Creek.

Lafayette has fast become the destination city in the East Bay.

Its Mediterranean climate is popular with those seeking sunny weather free from the fog. Low on density, high on greenery, easy access to outdoor activities, great weather, excellent schools, and an easy commute to San Francisco, thanks to the BART station in the town center.

The central downtown district offers shopping and dining to match. The buzz keeps building as new restaurants and shops keep getting added.  Postino, Barranco Cocina Peruna, Pizza Antica, Tutus, & Metro, are just a sampling of the burgeoning restaurant scene.

Nearly in the center of town, Lafayette Reservoir is open year-round for boating, fishing, and hiking. Another favorite feature of Lafayette is its miles of trails, which are used year-round for biking, jogging, or walking. Trail MapLafayette Trails.
