Smart, Green, Beautiful & Centrally Located...
2398 sq. ft.
1747 San Miguel Drive, located in the beautiful downtown of Walnut Creek, in the East Bay of Northern California, exemplifies a lifestyle that is smart, green, modern & beautiful.
This luxurious smart home was thoughtfully constructed in 2016 and perfected by the current owner. With 2398 square feet of living space, owned solar and an iPad (or smartphone app) that controls lights, alarm, temperature, smoke detectors and security cameras located throughout the interior and exterior of the home: you can run your home from your office, bed or the beach in Hawaii. (Yes, post-Covid, naturally!)
Few homes provide the benefits of being brand new, well built and in walking distance to all your favorite restaurants, grocerty stores and world-class shopping. This home is one of the few. The walk score for this home is an 89: with the famed Iron Horse Regional Trail being 2 blocks away, and just 3 blocks to Broadway Plaza (downtown), Safeway, Whole Foods and Civid Park for dog-friendly gatherings. For those commuting, the entrance to Highway 24 & I-680 is less than 1 mile away and BART is 1.4 miles away with a free shuttle pick up available in front of the Apple Store in Broadway Plaza.
This showplace rivets from the street: the beautiful landscape, with paved stone driveway and the lit up address outside, the handsome garage doors, the glass door leading to the office and master deck all give the home tremendous curb appeal.
Before you take a step inside, the opulence is evident from the oversized glass front door framed by floor to ceiling sidelights, giving you a glimpse of what is to come. Upon entry, an oversized and completely finished coat closet lends adequate storage space to your coats, umbrellas and rain boots.
An oversized Gourmet kitchen thrills, with custom built, soft-close Shaker style cabinetry, massive island with seating for four, Thermador appliances including 5 burner gas cooktop and Cambria Quartz slab countertops. Modern hanging pendant lighting illuminates the island beautifully, and a beverage refrigerator at the island offers convenience and extra storage. Well planned details like the built-in microwave drawer allow for maximum counter space.
The open concept living space here was designed for entertaining: kitchen, spacious dining area and great room all provide plentiful gathering space, abundant natural light and overlook the darling backyard.
Artisanship is clear in every nook of this home: the downstairs home office features a Covid-time dream: gorgeous built-in desk & separate storage cabinet, and a private entrance for client meetings, or to exit the house without disturbing anyone else. Also could double as an at-home gym.
The sprawling, lavish Master captivates: coffered ceilings with indirect lighting, private deck, 2 closets including one tremendous walk-in and a smaller one: ideal for rotation of in/off season clothing. The Master bath is one to rival the Claremont’s: with dual sinks, Quartz slab counters, vanity seating, a stall shower with both a rain shower, handheld showerhead & 2 soap & shampoo nooks, Bain Ultra therapeutic jetted bathtub for two, and Toto washlet smart toilet with bidet & remote and unique Porcelanosa tile.
Bedrooms are all of generous proportion, each with a custom built-in closet organization system and one bedroom offering a 16 drawer built-in dresser with handsome wood top.
The chore of laundry is no longer, as the laundry room is conveniently located upstairs and completely outfitted in custom shaker-style, white, soft-close cabinetry, offers 2 hanging rods for drying delicates & a Kraus utility sink.
A beautiful, backyard is situated right off the main living area, is low maintenance, private & serene with heat & drought-tolerant Silver Falls Dichondra dripping over the rear wall and a built-in fire pit for year-round enjoyment.
Storage is never an issue in this completely finished two car garage with custom cabinetry throughout, epoxy floor coating, a workbench ideal for your projects and slat wall for hanging organization.
Employing a Sunpower 16 panel 6.7KW solar system and offering an EV car charging station, this home ensures a green footprint and the lowest of energy bills (averaging $50 per month!)
This generous 5 bedroom, 3 full bathroom layout can accomodate any stage of life, from young couples moving out of the city, to families downsizing from the costly maintenance of masssive backyards. The best part of this home is it feels like a luxurious sanctuary from the outside world with unparalleled access to world class amenities and entertainment.
