Stunning Remodel in the Heart of Glorietta


This remodeled four bedroom, two and a half bath single level home is located on Martha Road a short distance from popular Glorietta elementary and the Meadow Swim & Tennis Club.

The home features a dramatic great room with large skylights, vaulted ceilings, large family room with built-in 65 inch TV, casual dining area and spacious kitchen with island, stone counters & stainless steel appliances all facing a wall of windows overlooking a parklike backyard.

The home is great for entertaining. French doors open from both the family room and living room onto the patio. The third side is bounded by a glassed entrance to the master bedroom giving the patio a courtyard feel as it looks onto a European style fountain. A large Chinese Pistache tree shades the patio in summer and large retractable sunshades can be deployed to shade guests on a summer day.

Terraced lawns provide ample area for play and a short walk on the stone-lined path leads to a large arbor over a flagstone patio where guests can relax while overlooking the house and neighborhood below.

The light and airy master bedroom has two cedar lined walk-in closets and master bath with vaulted ceiling, remote control skylight, spacious spa tub plus dual shower. Dual sinks and a large stone counter face a large mirror making it easy for two to get ready on a busy morning.

One bedroom has been configured as a study with recessed lights and glass doors. The two remaining bedrooms are quiet and close to the updated hall bath with shower over tub, stone counter and vanity with plenty of storage.

In addition, the home has dual pane windows, hardwood floors throughout, central heat and air, numerous skylights (three of which can be opened by remote control).

Orinda, CA Homeowners Waiting For Market To Improve

It appears Orinda homeowners are continuing to hold their properties off the market while they wait for market improvements. We are seeing reduced numbers of new listings taken and reduced market inventory. However, sales are down as well leading to about a 4 month supply of inventory. Median pricing is closing in on median sold prices which indicates that sellers are getting more realistic when pricing homes. Price per square foot appears to have stabilized.

Buyers Lament As Orinda Unsold Home Inventory Shrinks

The inventory of unsold Orinda homes remained low in March 2011 but sales activity slowed with numbers of accepted offers falling from February’s figures. There has been robust activity at open houses with many new buyers out looking for homes but overall buyers appear to be taking their time to find the perfect home. The number of new listings taken fell this month which will reduce the numbers of new homes available for sale. This is an opportune time for sellers who have been waiting in the wings to get their home on the market.

Orinda Home Sales Prices Jump In January 2011

Orinda’s median sold home price jumped to $1.4 million, an 87% increase over December’s figure of $750,000.
