A stylish 4BD/2.5BA Mid-Century Modern in the hills of Orinda, 6 Culver Court is a 2682 square foot gem, nestled on an expansive corner lot on a quiet cul-de-sac. Oversized windows and lovely wooded views, beautiful deck, updated kitchen and bathrooms, and an apartment/guest/au pair suite on lower level with private entrance. A detached, finished workshop has been wired for electricity, perfectly suited to an artist’s studio or playhouse. Near Crestview Pool, parks, trails, BART, and sought-after schools.
Lush landscaping between the public street and the private drive creates a peaceful feeling of seclusion similar to a vacation home or a weekend getaway.
The front door with glass accents opens onto a tiled entryway with coat closet and powder room. Beyond the entryway, hardwood floors and natural light beckon. An open circular floor plan coupled with glass doors and oversized windows creates the feeling of a sheltered hilltop retreat, bringing the outdoors inside.
The spacious living room with its vaulted ceiling and windows on three sides is filled with sunlight, and a gas fireplace provides a warm glow in the winter evenings. Sliding glass doors open on to the brick walkway and an expansive wood deck large enough for barbeques or entertaining friends al fresco.
The living room leads to a formal dining room, which in turn opens onto the light-filled kitchen. The updated kitchen boasts stone countertops, gas stove, dual sink, trash compactor, and open shelves.
In the other wing of the home is a family room with wet bar and windows overlooking the hills. Opposite the windows, sliding glass doors open onto the driveway.
On the lower level is an owner’s bedroom large enough to include a separate sitting area. Ideal as a rainy-day retreat, with partial hill views and gas fireplace. Two additional bedrooms feature large windows with partial hill views and huge closets.
The three downstairs bedrooms share an updated full bath featuring tile floors, a stone vanity with dual sinks, shower over tub, and a built-in linen closet.
A separate studio apartment/guest/au pair suite with private entrance includes a walk-in closet, eat-in kitchenette, and full bath with tile floor, solid surface vanity, and step-in shower.
