The definition of thoughtful design in harmony with its natural surroundings, this Lafayette estate is sophisticated and elegant, yet practical and comfortable as it effortlessly blends a European grace with the rural serenity of the Napa Valley. Among the enclave of picturesque and large home sites in Lafayette’s Rancho View Knolls, this custom home at 1465 Rancho View Dr. is an oasis of tranquility the minute you drive through the gates. The estate is brimming with fine craftsmanship, hand-selected materials, and a meticulous attention to detail from the expansive paver driveway and inviting front courtyard and a Tuscan landscape to the open flowing floor plan. The rich, warm hues of Italian tile and mesquite wood floors, the vaulted and exposed Douglas Fir beam ceilings, Venetian plaster walls and Bonelli windows and doors combine with the sprawling backyard with outdoor kitchen, pool, spa, fountains, and gardens dotted with antique planters. The hilltop landscape surrenders to the gently sloped topography and acreage where horses can graze and find shade under a canopy of oak trees. Located in Lafayette, CA. Offered at $5,400,000 | #Sothebys #VentureSIR
