About 1060 Dolores Drive
THE BEST OF DOWNTOWN LAFAYETTE!
Welcome to 1060 Dolores Drive, an unbelievably special and unique home nestled in the heart of one of Lafayette's most sought after neighborhoods. You can't get any better than this fabulous location for downtown Lafayette living! There is a reason why Dolores Drive sees almost no turnover, and this wonderful home is a prime example. First time on market in 40 years (and only 3rd time on market ever), 1060 Dolores is located before the road turns uphill and tucked privately away with almost zero freeway noise. Virtually flat neighborhood makes for easy ambling to downtown less than a mile away!
This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home features 1687 SF, an 0.85 acre lot combining two APN's, and an old-world charm and original beauty that you cannot ﬁnd anywhere else. Spectacularly soaring oak trees, dappled green light out every window, and original built in features like sliding-panel ventilation and original hardwood flooring will all make your heart soar at the never-to-be matched charm. Anderson double-hung dual pane windows, darling kitchen, new interior & exterior paint, recent sewer lateral replacement, and gorgeous Primary suite are just a few of the great features this home offers. Ideally suited to homeowners who are looking for the almost never available Lafayette 0.85 acre usable lot in a downtown dream location, or for SB9 investors considering a multiple home development.
You will love this enormous park-like backyard filled with graceful mature trees including incredible fruit offerings such as Green and Concord grapes, Grapefruit, Wild Plum, Persimmmon, Apples, Loquat, Asian Pear, Fig, and Pineapple Guava. This peacefully private paradise offers a retreat-like welcoming charm that will ﬁt all your needs whether it be gardening, relaxing or playing with family while the gate at the rear of the yard is your own portal to almost 20 acres of vacant land (privately owned).
Inside, the home features beautiful expanses of large windows that immediately define the space as extraordinarily and rare. Updated lighting, two full and one half bathrooms, three very roomy bedrooms with large closets, and a converted garage playroom all combine to make the space functional and fun in the meantime with endless possibilities for the future. Every room in the home wows with tons of natural light and original accents. The convenient inside laundry makes wash day a snap, and the rear covered porch & bar with adjacent original Guy-Fieri-Could-Only-Dream brick barbecue set up means 365 days a year of entertainment!
The excellent location at 1060 Dolores is less than a mile to renowned Lafayette hotspots like The Roundup, Postino, Barranco, Social Bird, Batch & Brine, The Coop, and Sideboard. Want to go to San Francisco? This home is only 0.7 miles to B.A.R.T and less than a mile to freeway access for the whole Bay Area, while the highly acclaimed Lafayette lower education schools assigned to this address are all under 2 miles away (Happy Valley Elementary, Stanley Middle) while Acalanes High is just 2.5 miles away.
