About

Garden-to-Table Homestead with European Inspired Kitchen

The house & garage

10700 Lochard is your rare opportunity to own a truly unique home nestled in the beautiful Oakland Hills.  A charming 50’s rancher has been cleverly re-imagined for a real garden-to-table, chef’s, indoor-outdoor lifestyle in a private, natural setting.  Don’t let the modest cottage front fool you, this home exudes charm & sophistication.   The heart of the home rests in an expanded kitchen with stone-countertop island workstation (for prepping & baking) that opens to a generous light filled dining room designed for intimate family dinners or salon style gatherings.  The vaulted ceilings in this amply sized room gives a great-hall feeling without sacrificing intimacy.  Softly textured walls, a picture-window framing a back garden view & a bench seating/storage cubby & gas fireplace complete the homey, yet stylish feeling.   Friends & family will want to gather here.  You’ll send them home with leftovers!

Two generous bedrooms in a private wing of the house offer nice separation of space.  The back bedroom boasts a slider & private deck that leads straight to the garden, where you’ll watch the moon rise, catch up on a good read, or just let the sound of the fountain sooth you to sleep on warm nights.  The front bedroom overlooks the fruit orchard & rose garden – completing the sense that nature is right outside every window.

The living room sports one of 3 fireplaces on site (one outside, two inside), plus a beautiful wood framed picture window, with views of light filtering through the orchard.  A gorgeous mural continues the verdant bird & wildland theme, bringing the pastoral peacefulness inside.  This bonus room creates a perfect opportunity for a third bedroom (can handle a queen sized bed), a home office, or a dedicated media room for movie night.  Rustic wood finishes throughout the house complete the naturalized style that provides a serene oasis for your senses.

The garage homes the washer & dryer & is Tesla ready with a charging outlet that can also be converted to support other electric vehicles.

The garden

Cheaper than therapy, you’ll spend so much time here, with a quarter acre of garden to play, learn, & grow.    Established organic veggie, tomato, pepper, & kale are currently producing in raised beds with amended soils & lots of mulch.   Some winter plants have been added, but with room for your creative touch.   Veggies have been interplanted with luscious pollinators & perennials designed to bring bees & hummingbirds to put on a show.  You’ll find that weather in the East Bay hills is perfect for tomatoes & giant sunflowers!   Four 1000-gallon water catchment tanks & a working grey water system provide partial water supply for the garden.   Song birds LOVE this yard & have been invited to visit with feeders & a burbling freshwater fountain.   The cottage garden motif is enhanced by a beautiful vine covered arch & an arbor style deck in the back, a producing fruit orchard with Gala apples, yellow plum, mandarin orange trees, & a rose garden with 23 varieties of mature roses, completes 360 degrees of garden around the home.

For garden entertaining, a cobblestone patio just off the kitchen provides a perfect spot for outdoor grilling & serving with a concrete outdoor fireplace, plus room for an extended serving table.  Or just a perfect spot for morning coffee or to watch the sunset change the sky to red & gold to the west over the park. 

The lot sits at the end of a private dead end street, directly adjacent to Knowland Park.   Hiking, dog, & sunset view trails are literally right outside your front door.

Expansion Potential

Lot was surveyed to determine property borders in preparation for, & sellers have completed architectural plans for, an 800 square foot ADU. Future garden site plan available, designed by Sunset Magazine featured landscape designer Beth Mullins of Growsgreen Landscaping.
