I originally grew up in this home some five miles away, before it was moved from my family's Walnut Orchard to its current location. One of the oldest homes in Contra Costa County.

A perfect family environment with a children's playroom inside and an Alice in Wonderland-theme for play areas throughout the gardens.

Truly incomparable gardens and natural beauty await those who stay.

This house is everything it seems and more!! We were using the house for a company retreat and had multiple beautiful and comfortable options both inside and outside for meetings. The garden is absolutely breathtaking. The owner is the nicest person you'll ever meet. She communicated quickly and efficiently and made sure we had everything we needed. I can't recommend this property highly enough!!! Thank you so much!!

We could not have experienced such a wonderful wedding without Patty. She made the place beautiful upon our guests arrival and truly was a first class hostess. We could not have asked for better. We have all the best recommendations for Patty and the Estate. We never could have dreamed of a wedding so beautiful. Thank you,
Amy and Andrew

Beyond Expectations. Magical!

We initially rented the house for the week before our daughter's wedding, as a family gathering, as our families are split between both coasts. The photos of the property capture the physical beauty. What is impossible to capture is the inner beauty of the gardens and home. We spent the week prior to the wedding reconnecting with our family. Many hours walking the garden, enjoying the ponies and the company of each other. There is a peacefulness that is very rare to find these days. Our daughter was married on property and I can not imagine a more prefect spot, surrounded by beautiful gardens, back dropped by Mt Diablo. I am grateful to the graciousness of the owners, John and Patty. Their love of the property is evident everywhere. This is not just a "rental house", but a home.

Amazing Garden Oasis

We rented this property to host our family and friends for the week of our wedding. This included many children. The property was big enough to host 4 different couples plus kids. The gardens are endless and immaculately maintained. There were ponies for the kids, which the owner graciously brought out for all the children to ride and pet.

The residence was perfect for a rehearsal dinner with large wooden tables and a garden setting. The back patio also served perfectly as a buffet line. We originally made an agreement with the owner, but we never had time to put the agreement in writing. The owner was honest and true to her word.

There is a nice grass area on property to play bocce balls as well as shady and sunny areas. There is a small swing set for children and hot tub for adults. The great thing about this property is that the inside residence and outside gardens provide plenty of areas for different groups to spread out and have space. We got lost in the gardens and forgot about the real world. It was an inspiring place. The owner and gardeners stay out of your way, but are always deep in the gardens if you ever need anything. Top-notch!!! Highly recommended!

We rented the home for a week while in the area for our daughter's wedding at Shadelands in Walnut Creek.. We were awestruck by the beauty of the gardens and the home. Everything was as described in the listing and property was easily accessible to Shadelands, Pleasant Hill, and Concord. Patty was a gem and so attentive to our needs. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend attractions, restaurants, or nearby activities because we were so busy preparing for the wedding. The house has a beautiful bedroom upstairs just perfect for pictures of the bride getting ready. We had an unforgettable week and would highly recommend the house.
