Property Description

Originally purchased in 1915, this .84 acre property has been in the same family for 105 years! A summer cottage was constructed in 1928 by a great aunt, who came over the hill from Oakland to enjoy this beautiful lot and open space. The property then went to the great aunt’s niece and her husband in about 1946. The niece and husband added the dining room. In 1950's, the grand living room, kitchen, hallway were added. The fireplace is a replica of the Heritage House Inn’s in Mendocino. The niece and her husband raised 2 daughters in this wonderful home. The house is presently 2680 sq. ft., 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 2 fireplaces, wood paneling and views of Orinda Country Club golf course and club house. The level front portion of the lot is huge and usable, with the home privately set at the back of the lot to take advantage of the views. The niece passed away peacefully in her home of over 70 yrs. Appointment required to visit property. So many possibilities.
