Tucked into the landscape of Alamo’s desirable Bryan Ranch is this single-story home that stretches out over more than a third-acre of level land showcasing a classic traditional style.
The exclusive neighborhood of Bryan Ranch is known for its views of oak-studded hillsides and access to Mount Diablo State Park via many hiking trails.
The cobblestone and brick facade of this home at 157 Emmons Canyon Lane complements the artfully designed front landscape and creates an inviting entry. The approximately 3,580 square feet of living space is richly appointed with wood trim and millwork, coffered ceilings, hardwood floors, and grand rooms. There are three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms.
Throw open the multiple divided French doors to connect with the beautifully designed backyard. Bordered by towering redwoods, the yard backs up to a greenbelt that provides lots of privacy and creates a peaceful setting. Listen to the waterfall cascading over boulders and into the swimming pool, dine under the covered patio, barbecue at the built-in grill, or play in the park-like setting on the lawns bordered by lush gardens.
Double front doors with leaded glass accents, side panels and arched transom creates a grand entry into the foyer that features an exposed box beam ceiling and beautiful chandelier. To the right is the stately formal dining room with detailed wainscot, and a wall of built-in cabinetry and buffet to store and display china. To the left of the foyer is the formal living room, a large room with a high ceiling, crown molding, and fireplace with marble surround and hearth and wood mantel.
French doors with another arched transom can be opened to allow access to the backyard from the foyer as well.
The spacious kitchen, casual dining area and huge family room flow together, creating some fabulous space with a centralized walk-around bar with brass foot rail, sink and refrigerator. With room for multiple cooks, the kitchen features an oversize Caesarstone island and breakfast bar. Additional perimeter counters are complemented by a decorative backsplash of mosaic stone tiles with copper accents and oak cabinetry. Appliances include two Dacor ovens and microwave and Bosch dishwashers.
The adjacent family room features built-in cabinetry, a vaulted exposed-beam ceiling and a fireplace with cobblestone surround and raised hearth and exposed wood accents that rise to the ceiling. Just off the family room is a private room, ideal for home office or study room with built-in workstation and cabinetry.
The master bedroom has a double-door entry, vaulted ceiling, built-in cabinetry and another French door to a private patio and path to the pool. The master bathroom features marble tile floors, jetted soaking tub, dual-sink vanity, and walk-in shower with decorative tile accents.
Additional features include a three-car garage with one bay that is extra deep and tall. There is also a pull-down staircase to attic storage space, and workshop space, central air conditioning, and wide side yards for additional storage or gardens.
Bryan Ranch is a quiet, rural neighborhood that also has easy access to the charming downtown Alamo and the delightful downtown Danville, Interstate 680, Walnut Creek BART, and commute routes to Silicon Valley and San Francisco.
