This sophisticated Castro Valley home is located in sought-after Palomeras Hills and has spectacular hills, canyon, and bay views! Spacious at more than 2,300 SF, the house offers four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a powder room, an open living room/dining room, family room, laundry room and a new, eat-in kitchen. Part of the Palomares Hills HOA community, homeowners are entitled to the fabulous clubhouse/rec center, the Olympic-size pool, parks and outdoor tennis and basketball courts. Situated on a quiet, non-thoroughfare street high in the hills, the house is close to top performing schools, the rec center/pool, and the many regional and recreational parks in the area.
The fact that this house is special is immediately apparent the minute one steps through the front doors and into the marble-tiled entry hall. A large, open living room/dining room combination is flooded with natural light from the many picture and clerestory windows, through which a panoramic view unfolds of the canyon, the hills, and of the SF Bay and South Bay beyond. A soaring 2-story vaulted ceiling takes full advantage of the sunlight while highlighting a grand staircase that leads to the second floor bedrooms and bathrooms.
A spacious family room is located to the left of the entrance, and features a beautiful hardwood floor, plenty of natural light and a fireplace with a traditional white fireplace mantel over a classic black brick surround and hearth. A powder room is conveniently situated next to the family room on a hallway that leads to the full laundry room and attached, 2-car garage.
The kitchen is adjacent to the family room, and was just remodeled with the serious cook in mind. The kitchen features stainless steel KitchenAid appliances and loads of brilliant white, Shaker-style cabinets that are beautifully offset by the gray quartz counters and tasteful Carrara marble-like ceramic tiles that form a high backsplash. The spacious breakfast nook is surrounded by tall windows that take advantage of the gorgeous views on one wall, and has sliding doors to the citrus trees and patio on another.
Upstairs, each bedroom is wonderfully unique and different from the others. The spacious master bedroom suite is situated at the far end of a central hallway for privacy, and features plenty of natural light, a 10-foot cathedral ceiling, a contemporary bay window, a huge walk-in closet and a second large closet. The spa-like ensuite bathroom includes a jetted tub, a large, walk-in shower, a separate water closet and a double vanity.
Another generously-sized and sunny bedroom is situated at the other end of the hall, next to a bedroom with French doors opening to a Juliette balcony that overlooks the first floor and the gorgeous views beyond. What a great home office, guest room or both! Another full bathroom on this level is easily accessible from the other bedrooms. and has a large, dual vanity and tub/shower combination.
A truly special feature of this lovely home is the beautiful backyard retreat that is exceptional in every way. The yard borders an expansive open space, separated from the yard only by a tall, attractive wire mesh fence that allows full views but keeps unwanted wilderness out. With two pergolas, two wood decks, a paved patio and kumquat, orange and lemon trees, this is a perfect spot to entertain family and friends, or simply relax and enjoy the gorgeous views and Castro Valley’s temperate weather.
