This Classic Orinda Charmer was designed by noted architect William Wurster in 1937 for the Breuner family who moved from Piedmont, enchanted by this amazing location, close to town yet quiet and serene. The mature landscaping framed by Heritage Oak trees was designed by Thomas Church and has been lovingly maintained and enhanced by the current owners. The residence and landscape are a classic example of both designers intent to have the indoor and outdoor spaces blend into one another on this virtually level 1.19 acre parcel. The residence features both formal and informal rooms for entertaining that are generously sized with high ceilings and picture windows to frame the scenic exterior. There are four bedrooms including the master on the first floor. The pool area is adjacent to the living room decking and features a covered dining area, kitchen and changing area. Lovely paths meander through Magical secret gardens. There are paved play areas and lush lawns.
