Every room of this single-level remodeled home opens to beautiful outdoor spaces.
Play and entertain in the amenities of a resort-inspired backyard and hillside retreat, meditate in the tranquility of a peaceful front garden or sit and savor the view of Mount Diablo perfectly framed between mature redwoods in a masterfully designed secret garden.
Located on Danville’s coveted west side, the home at 251 Montair Drive features walls of windows and a contemporary and sophisticated interior that harmonizes with its natural surroundings. The private, more than 1.5-acre property is bordered by sheltering evergreens and offers even more room for raised garden beds or play structure.
The extensively remodeled home features about 4,465 square feet of living space, grand open rooms, six bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, and a three-car garage. The inviting entry features a slate walkway floating above a pond with nearby pebble stone front garden and infinity-edged waterfalls with custom lighting.
This west-side Danville home’s backyard is a sprawling oasis with paved patios, Pebble Tec swimming pool and spa, Lynx kitchen and koi pond.
Richard Matsutani, son of the late Henry Matsutani, chief designer of the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, created an award-winning view garden that wraps around a 13,000-gallon koi pond with light features and bridge, a three-level rock waterfall, and Zen-inspired pebble stone sitting area with gas fire pit.
The backyard is a sprawling venue complete with paved patios, Pebble Tec swimming pool with beach entry, 10-person spa, and rock waterfall cascading into the pool. Programmable multi-colored pool and spa lighting was also added. There are lush lawns, mature landscaping and a Japanese teahouse tucked under a canopy of evergreens.
A complete outdoor Lynx kitchen features Caesarstone counters, built-in barbecue, smokers, pizza oven, infrared rotisserie, double burners, bar sink, fireplace, flat screen TV, under counter stainless storage and refrigerator.
The home was virtually taken down to the studs and rebuilt with richly stained hardwood flooring, double-paned windows and sliding glass doors, and updated with chic bathrooms.
An expansive formal living and dining room are filled with natural light from walls of windows and views of the front and back gardens. A vaulted ceiling and stone fireplace are in the living room. An exposed beam ceiling and floor-to-ceiling stacked stone wall are featured in the dining room.
The home’s contemporary kitchen features windows on two sides with views.
