The authentic charm of this 1930s Orinda estate is unparalleled. While many of its original charming details reflect quintessential Orinda, the updated finishes and technical updates make this home truly one of a kind. Perched above Moraga Way, on over an acre of meticulously manicured landscape, 24 Orchard Road is perfectly located within minutes of 12 years of Orinda’s top-rated schools, and walking distance to downtown Orinda and BART. Arguably, this Santa Barbara-style home is located on one of the best and most convenient streets in Orinda. This estate has breathtaking property, boasting a secluded saltwater pool and hot tub, surrounded by green walls of climbing fig. Family and friends will enjoy the custom-designed bocce ball court, basketball hoop, and rope swing. There is something for everyone: raised planter beds for the green thumb, an outdoor playhouse for the imaginative dreamer, and a top-of-the-line built-in barbecue for the family chief. This home is truly an entertainer’s paradise. Over 3000sf of patio, crushed granite meandering pathways, and hardscape allow this property to hold events of grandeur. Hundreds of people can be entertained in this yard. Your own personal creek access provides a beautiful retreat. But the most unmistakable and undeniably rare feature is the massive towering live oak. Estimated at 200 years old, this magnificent native wonder lies at the center of the yard. It is accompanied by numerous other beautiful old-growth trees, including redwoods, cedar, and a variety of fruit-bearing trees. All this natural beauty provides a gentle shaded canopy. This home and its connection to wildlife and California’s history allow visitors to experience a bygone era.
