Looking for a spectacular custom home a one-minute walk from Newark’s Lakeshore Park and Lake? Interested in a kitchen with Thermador Pro-series appliances designed with the serious chef in mind? Like the idea of being able to entertain lots of friends/family in a home specifically designed for entertaining? Want lots of light? Custom millwork on your hitlist? A massive yard that includes a basketball court? This is it!
Located mere steps from Newark’s Lake, this home has been completely customized inside and out. Walk up the new stamped concrete 4-car driveway through the arch to enter the courtyard. Straight ahead is the entry to the home while to the left across the piazza the entry to the side yard beckons.
Inside, a tumbled marble mosaic framed entry provides access to the sunken living room. This large room has lighted designer bookshelves, parquet floors and French doors to the side yard. Currently housing a concert grand piano, it is the perfect room to entertain. Next is the dining room, featuring sidelights that provide ample light, along with a rear window for additional ambiance.
At the heart of the home is the kitchen, specifically designed for a semi-pro chef. Thermador professional series appliances “bring the heat” and make cooking a delight. This kitchen has provided restaurant quality meals for large groups over the years, made easy by a Thermador warming drawer. Granite counters and a large commercial-grade stainless steel sink make cleanup a breeze, along with the Thermador dishwasher.
Down the stairs is the spacious family room, complete with gas-powered wood-burning fireplace with a custom mantel and bookshelves. Watch favorite shows on the 75” TV and feel the rumble from the custom built-in sound system. Whether playing your favorites list or enjoying a family movie night, this room will be a favorite! Down the hall is another room sure to please: a home office with built-in bookshelves and a murphy bed for special guests. Across the hall is a spectacular tumbled marble bathroom complete with a steam room boasting a heated floor and bench! Imagine relaxing after a long, hard day in this incredible space!
Upstairs are the 5 bedrooms, including the master bedroom suite with a bay window. Custom features abound, including a built-in washer, dryer and laundry area. One of the front bedrooms features access to a private balcony while the other includes custom cabinets and a window seat.
Looking for storage? The large 2-car garage includes a massive amount of built-in storage cabinets on the walls and ceilings, a second refrigerator and still provides room for both cars. A myQ system ensures you can control both garage doors from any location. Speaking of remote access – the front door includes a nest doorbell and an August remote controlled lock.
Outside, it is your own private resort! Large expansive patios set the stage for events of any kind. Sit around the fire pit, enjoy time in the gazebo, light up the basketball court – the options are endless. There is ample space for a hot tub if so desired. Want to go for a walk? It is mere seconds to The Lake! A short drive takes you to Newark’s 4-Corners shopping area, and access to I-880, CA-84 and the Dumbarton Bridge are quick and easy.
You will have to look long and hard to find another home like this one – do not let this one get away!
