About The Owner

A resident of this vicinity for more than 35 years and have worked in the sales and marketing industy...mostly marketing myself around 'people helping people' with a customer focused goal of complete service and satisfaction.Most recent(10 yrs)in the Mortgage/Banking industry in support of Homeowners and Real Estate partners.

Personal interests range from Health and fitness,Motorcycling,Sports,Golf and sharing Good food and wine with friends.

The Owner purchased this estate in 1994

Why The Owner chose Lafayette

My original interest in this property was the potential of developing it into something of interest and my own vision of what it could become incorporating my personal flair for Architectural design and developement.The grounds,3.5 acres,the huge and ancient Oaks and the possibility of clearing areas to take advantage of the magnificent views,took on a life of its own.The pool,outdoor kitchen,lower lawn,garden area and Vineyard were a dream come true and truely takes you away from it all...but everything is right here within reach and access.

What makes this estate unique

Private and exclusive...On a private road with rare activity from neighboring area and difficult to see into private pool area.None of the features are shared.

Indoor area is well furnished and very comfortable with functional layout.Views of the surrounding areas approx 300 degrees.Modern Kitchen,breakfast banquette area looks east toward early morning sun and pool in full view just below.Full audio and visual features in and around deck area.

If you enjoy garden color,you will be happy to see a mature landscape add to the beauty.Much in Lavenders,Roses and other bedding plants.The entire backdrop for photo moments will be a definate feature for you and family.Fall brings an unbelievable color to the property as the strategic planting of Maples come alive !

Pool area gets in access of 9 hrs of full sun (peak)with umbrellas and cabana for protection if desired.The beach entry are gets the very last and facing east the setting sun on Mt Diablo is a highlight as you settle down to dinner.All ameneties are right at your fingertips and an after dinner drink around the fire pit or another dip in the pool will truly put you in the relax mode...as the sunset gives way to the twinkling light on the distant peaks and lower valley.Watch for the beam of orange light as it slowly breaks behind the Mountain.....the moon is in full view from this area and breathtaking when it is full and very hard to cut the evening short.Cabana equipt with change/bathroom.

Chris was beyond professional and so kind. His place is beautiful as well as very peaceful and the view of Mount Diablo is spectacular. I hope to have the opportunity to rent his home in the future.

Majestic Views! Feels like your at a resort in another country!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best spot and best home to have rented for a 30th Birthday Celebration with close friends. It has all the amenities that you would be wanting and more. This location makes you feel like your at a resort in another country! The outside cabana and pool is mesmerizing, the vineyard and the majestic views of Mt. Diablo just leaves you wanting to gaze and relax and leaves you just in awe of how beautiful the surroundings are around you. It was spacious and has beautiful interior decoration. I had rented the home the last week of March and it was 90 degrees, it was pure bliss and perfection. Me and my friends day dream about the place constantly and wish we were still there. What made it best was Chris, from the first initial inquiry to even to this day, he has been so great to work with and made this experience that much more memorable and better. I will definitely be coming back here! Don't forget to bring your camera because you'll constantly want to take pictures!

We had such a great time at this property. :) The pool and hot tub with the view were spectacular and exactly what we wanted! It was quiet, luxurious, private and relaxing. Chris was super easy to work with, generous and very accommodating. We hope to come back!!

Great property, great host

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 4 couples stayed here and couldn't have been more pleased. We were in San Fran for a wedding but just wanted to hang out in the outdoor living area the whole time. Highly recommended!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the property was gorgeous. It's so homey with lots of space. The best part is the outside area with the pool and hot tub. There's also a view. That's going to be the setup of my dreamhouse.

I recently rented this out for my boyfriend's birthday and we invited a few of our friends to stay with us. We had such a great time and thank Chris - the owner - such a wonderful experience. Chris is very accommodating and very helpful prior, during, and after our stay. I would stay again without a doubt!

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property is perfect. Chris made the booking process easy and was about if we had any questions, even allowing us to print tickets at his house.

We were a party of 6 adults from UK who after having some time in Vegas was looking for quality downtime, we found it here in abundance. I'm ashamed to say we rushed our sightseeing trips to San Francisco so we could get back to pool/spa just to chill out.

I was lucky enough to have the master suite with it's beautiful bathroom and walk in wardrobes. Everything was just perfect.

We had a couple of minor issues but a quick text to Chris and all was sorted. We never expect perfection but knowing someone was there giving it their attention was comforting.

The pool area was our favourite part, there were sun loungers, comfy armchairs, bar area with six stools and a table and chairs. Whatever we wanted was available.

Cannot fault this property, We really didn't want to leave but with some lovely memories and fab tans we reluctantly packed up and set off for the airport which is less than an hours drive away.

Thanks Chris for a perfect holiday setting.
