A spectacular 41-acre parcel showcasing a custom-built home and adjoining 39-acre vacant land parcel offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create the ultimate homestead, equestrian center, special events venue, winery/vineyard, and more. The possibilities are endless.
Tucked in the East Bay’s picturesque Alhambra Valley, this gorgeous land borders Briones Regional Park for about a third mile and offers two creeks and breathtaking 360-degree views of oak-studded hillsides, plus views of Mount Diablo, Briones, and more from multiple plateaus.
The approximately 41.48 acres of land in Parcel A at 5433 Alhambra Valley Road features a 4,900-square-foot hacienda-style home at the end of a long, gated driveway, a three-car attached garage and a 3,500-square-foot, five-bay 20-car detached garage for horsepower enthusiasts or the ideal equestrian facility. There are fenced water-sourced pastures and proximity to riding and equestrian areas, including Briones and Tilden Regional parks.
Once the site of the original sourcing for the Alhambra Water Company, this area would attract city dwellers around the turn of the century who would come to drink the pure mineral water that would pour from aqueducts drilled into the side of the hills. Today this property retains the peacefulness of its rural setting without compromising proximity to Highway 4 and Interstate 680, about 10 minutes away, and the convenience of a less-than-10-mile drive to the Lafayette and Walnut Creek BART stations or about 25 miles to San Francisco.
Current zoning allows agricultural use and its 10-acre minimum lot size allows for possible subdivision or additional dwellings.
Built in 1984, the masonry home with a tile roof offers mostly single-level living with a light-drenched open floor plan, six bedrooms and four bathrooms. Soaring exposed beams, tongue and groove ceilings, hardwood flooring, and new bedroom carpet are featured. Sliding glass doors open to fabulous outdoor spaces. Expansive decks and patios offer magnificent views of the surrounding forested land and ultimate privacy and tranquility.
Behind a decorative iron gate and a paver walkway is a double-door entry to the grand two-story foyer. A fireplace with a stone surround that reaches the vaulted ceiling anchors the spacious living room, which also features a wall of windows and a glass door to a large deck. Look out to a view of Mt. Diablo looming in the distance.
The formal dining room is an equally impressive room designed to accommodate large gatherings. This room has a bay window.
The primary suite also has a wood-burning fireplace and a private reading/lounging niche with view windows and a private deck. This suite is designed with two separate bathrooms, each with a walk-in closet.
The kitchen is another generous space with granite counters, a peninsula island and lots of prep space for multiple cooks. The kitchen is open to a family room with a vaulted exposed beam ceiling, a wood stove with a brick to-ceiling surround and a sliding glass door to another spectacular outdoor venue with views.
On the main level, there are three additional bedrooms with walk-in closets and two bathrooms, one with a dual-sink vanity and tub/shower combination. The second full bathroom is smartly located next to the laundry room entry for an easy cleanup before continuing into the rest of the home.
At the top of the stairs are multiple rooms. First, a fabulous flexible-use, approximate 800-square-foot room with a skylight and a walk-in closet. Create the ultimate game/bonus room or an additional bedroom. Additionally, another bedroom is also located on this level with an adjacent huge walk-in or storage closet, plus finished storage space.
Additional features include a laundry/mudroom with an LG washer and dryer, a well system with two tanks and filtration system, storage sheds, fenced garden areas, and a firewood room.
