This dreamy home on Ivy Drive in northern California is all about bringing the outdoors inside.
Things we love about this property crush:
Located in Orinda, this one-story haven feels like the perfect marriage of a treehouse and a super-chic California ranch.
What works about this space is that the single-level layout boasts all of the bells and whistles under one roof (a roof that happens to have stunning wood-beam vaulted ceilings). The living room is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows with views of California’s rolling hills. Glass doors open to a wraparound deck, ideal for al fresco dining. On a chilly evening, there’s an indoor fireplace that beckons for hot toddies. And while flooring isn’t always a glamorous topic, this home alternates Insta-worthy hardwood and natural stone.
The home’s three bedrooms are situated in a corridor, separate from the open living and dining areas. The kitchen, with dappled granite and stainless steel appliances, features double ovens and a wine refrigerator. There’s a five-burner Dacor stove and plenty of space for a buffet. Start dusting off your best hosting skills.
Outside, there’s a charming courtyard with stone pavers and plenty of pretty landscaping.
