about this home's










Perched atop a ridge in Happy Valley sits this modern farmhouse that was built to perfection from the ground up in 1998.  Award-winning architect, Nick Noyes, designed the home to showcase the sweeping views of Briones Regional Park to the north. The excellent southern exposure, combined with the superlative design, and the incredible use of high ceilings, windows and doors, provides a stunning amount of natural light.  The private 5.4-acre outdoor oasis is sure to impress, offering wonderful outdoor living and entertaining capabilities, and easy access to the Lafayette Ridge trail system.  Boasting privacy yet convenience, the location of this retreat-like home is minutes from Hwy 24, BART, the Lafayette Reservoir, town, and top-rated Lafayette and Acalanes Unified District schools!

Low on density and high on greenery, Lafayette offers rolling hillsides, excellent schools, and an easy commute to Oakland and San Francisco thanks to the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station in the town center. The Happy Valley area features meandering country roads and showplace estate homes perched on large hillside parcels that offer panoramic views of the valley. Mediterranean, English, and French Country architecture populate the landscaped neighborhoods. Lafayette’s central business district offers quality shopping and dining for locals and visitors alike. Restaurants such as Artisan Bistro, Chevalier, and Metro Lafayette are thriving. For those seeking old-fashioned comfort food, Millie’s Kitchen is a popular breakfast and brunch restaurant with large portions and modest prices. Lafayette Reservoir is open year-round for boating, fishing, picnicking, and hiking. After a long day on the water, locals head to The Roundup Saloon, a throwback to the days of rowdy roadhouses.
