About 10700 Lochard Street
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!
