189 Valdivia Circle
189 Valdivia Circle sits in the residential heart of San Ramon, and offers a great Twin Creeks neighborhood location only one block from Bollinger Canyon Elementary School and beautiful Memorial Park. This newly updated, split-level house was built in 1980 with a Mediterranean-style exterior design, and has an open living room/dining room, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a family room and an attached 2-car garage. Situated on a spacious corner lot, the 1,841-square-foot house also offers a backyard pool/spa that’s next to a raised rose bed, native grasses and mature plum and apple trees.
A large living room/dining room combination is just inside the front door, and has a soaring 14-foot cathedral ceiling and was thoughtfully designed to have sight lines into the kitchen, family room and the backyard. Plenty of dual-pane windows give the room a light and airy feel, and new flooring that resembles weathered wood continues through two of the home’s three levels. The eat-in kitchen, situated behind the living room, has been newly updated with a decorative recessed ceiling, crown moulding, creamy Calacatta quartz counters, new Whirlpool stainless steel dual ovens, dishwasher and refrigerator, and a stainless steel farmer’s sink with new hardware. A large family room on a lower split level is accessed from the living room and completely visible from the kitchen, and has a wood-burning fireplace, an entertainment nook, a new floor and sliding doors that open to the backyard. A bedroom on this level is ideal for a guest room or home office, and has new carpeting and sliding doors to the backyard. A full bathroom is conveniently situated between the bedroom and the attached 2-car garage.
The home’s three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms are located on a split-level third floor, in keeping with the home’s split-level design. A spacious master bedroom has new carpeting, plenty of natural light, two roomy closets, and a divided ensuite bathroom with a shower/soaking tub combination. Two bedrooms sit across the hall from the master bedroom, and are comparable in size, with new carpeting and windows that look out to the backyard and pool. A full bathroom is located on the landing, and is convenient to both bedrooms.
Not that long ago, San Ramon was a sleepy village of several hundred people, fruit orchards and grazing land. With the passage of time, the I-680 interstate, and the Bay Area’s population explosion, San Ramon is now a highly desirable place to live, and is known for its fine weather, vibrant community, award-winning public schools, open parklands, the shopping and restaurants at Bishop Ranch, and easy access to the greater Bay Area. 189 Valdivia Circle offers a wonderful opportunity to share in all that this location and special community have to offer.
