An opportunity to own rarely available acreage in Lafayette’s Burton Valley is also your chance to make a dream come true.
Eight pristine home sites that range from about 2 to 6 acres sprawl over the 87-acre Lucas Ranch development at the end of Lucas Drive. Each parcel tucked among the rolling hills dotted with heritage oaks features amazing views, including three parcels that have panoramic views.
The Lafayette city-approved custom home site plans range from 7,500 to 9,000 square feet and each is adjacent to undisturbed stretches of picturesque ridgelines and a peaceful atmosphere overlooking the verdant valleys, East Bay Regional Park District open space, and Mount Diablo.
Developers have spent the past two decades crafting the private enclave of homes. A buyer can take advantage of the approved home designs, customize it to his/her unique lifestyle, or take advantage of the blank canvas and start visualizing an original dream home.
The city-approved designs afford potential homeowners an opportunity and the flexibility to build a luxury estate of grand proportions with features such as formal living and entertaining spaces, vaulted and exposed beam ceilings, gourmet kitchens, butler pantries, wet bars, media rooms, luxurious master retreats, home gyms, elevators, executive offices/libraries, au-pair/guest quarters, wine rooms, and high-tech home automation systems.
Exterior decks and balconies will also take advantage of the commanding views.
The designs also capitalize on the concept of indoor/outdoor California living and incorporate plans for incredible level-out exteriors with swimming pools, outdoor dining areas and kitchens, fireplaces, fire pits, and even bocce ball courts.
Additionally, most parcels are approved for pool sites and secondary structures depending on your vision and needs, and can include a guesthouse, pool house, cabana, art studio, exercise room, and on one site, a possible barn and corral.
Ownership in an exclusive Lucas Ranch development also includes a one-eighth share of the adjoining, almost 52-acre Lucas Ranch nature preserve. This private and protected land will include walking and equestrian trails with the signature breathtaking panoramic views. (Any additional amenities would require approval from the city, county and homeowners association.) Lots 1 through 3 are the first to be released. To confirm current status and conditions of approval, check with the city of Lafayette. The plans for these sites will convey with purchase and may be used or changed as desired by the buyer.
