A grand Mediterranean-style two-story home is richly layered with exceptional finishes and superb craftsmanship on the inside and fabulous outdoor entertaining and relaxation space beautifully designed on the half-acre lot.
Built in 2006 by local builder Paul Enea, this home sits on a sprawling corner lot at 2252 Blackwood Drive in Walnut Creek’s Walnut Knolls neighborhood and features about 4,049 square feet of living space.
A private front courtyard and loggia overlooking a decorative fountain and gardens presents a warm welcome even before you enter the front door.
Newly designed, the backyard is landscaped to perfection, and features an inviting resort-style venue complete with outdoor living room pavilion with a trio of ceiling fans and complete kitchen with cement counter and bar seating, barbecue, sink, refrigerator, built-in ice chest and mounted flat screen TV. A paver patio and lots of room for poolside lounging surround a solar-heated, Pebble Tec pool and elevated spa. An additional covered terrace offers an ideal dining venue equipped with heat lamps for the cooler nights. This space enjoys a view of the sprawling lawn, pool, and a gentle slope artfully landscaped with queen palms and foliage including tree roses.
The interior features a classic Old World ambience with hand-scraped walnut floors, semi smooth plaster wall, high ceilings, and large casement windows and French doors.
There are five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms including a main-level guest room with en suite bathroom, and front-facing courtyard views. Each bathroom is adorned with marble finishes and decorative tile.
Also on the main level is a dedicated executive office with crown molding, a wall of custom built-in cabinetry, and sliding glass door access to a quiet terrace and the backyard. A nearby powder room is adorned with Venetian plaster walls, crown molding and marble finishes.
