7747 Gardella Drive
This lovely 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home was built in 1960 in a tranquil residential neighborhood and has been beautifully and tastefully expanded and remodeled by the current owners. Lovingly maintained for decades, the single-level house in San Ramon Village features a formal living room, a chef’s kitchen, a spacious family room addition, in-unit laundry, and an attached two-car garage.
This picture-perfect house features a traditional California ranch facade enhanced with a high whitewashed brick foundation; attractive pavers on the driveway and walkways; a beautiful lawn; and cheerful landscaping. The front door is protected from the elements by a welcoming, generously sized covered porch and opens to a spacious formal living room that separates the home’s bedrooms and bathrooms from the open kitchen/family room. The living room offers an elegant hickory hardwood floor, crown moulding, and traditional beadboard wainscoting, pleasing decorative features that continue in the house.
The gorgeous open kitchen/family room is most definitely the heart of the home. The eat-in gourmet kitchen is a chef’s delight with a 48-inch stainless steel GE Monogram gas range with six burners and dual ovens; a built-in decorative range vent hood; a new stainless steel Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator; a KitchenAid dishwasher; and a porcelain farmer’s sink. Black granite counters perfectly complement the white Shaker-style cabinets, and a door to the garage from the kitchen provides easy access for unloading groceries.
The wonderful family room is a newer addition to the home’s original footprint, built at the rear of the house. A granite-topped breakfast bar has a pass-through to the kitchen and separates, yet blends, these two inviting rooms. This very spacious gathering room has a cathedral ceiling, crown moulding, and a durable hardwood floor. Many windows provide plenty of natural light, and white ceiling fans offer energy-efficient cooling. Sliding doors open to the solar-heated saltwater pool and attractive paver deck, perfect for indoor/outdoor fun and entertainment. The lovely backyard garden has mature landscaping that includes lilies, boxwood, Japanese maple trees, ornamental grasses, and an established lawn.
The home’s bedrooms and bathrooms are situated off of the living room on a dedicated hallway offering separation from the living areas. The roomy master bedroom suite at the end of the hall has a hardwood floor, crown moulding, and a closet organizing system. The master bathroom has been recently updated to include a large stall shower with a white subway tile surround and glass tile border. The sunlit room has a white Shaker-style vanity, and traditional beadboard wainscoting ties together this tranquil space. Three more bright, sunny bedrooms are comparable in size, and each is finished with crown moulding, new Berber-style carpeting, and fresh paint. A thoughtfully updated bathroom is conveniently situated between the bedrooms, complete with a linen closet and tub/shower combination. A washer and dryer and 2-car garage complete the home.
Outside, the manicured backyard with the solar heated saltwater swimming pool and paver pool deck is the perfect place to entertain guests.
