About 3361 Sweet Drive
Summertime living is especially sweet in this beautifully updated rancher at 3361 Sweet Drive in Lafayette. Invite friends over for a swim in the sparkling POOL. Relax on the expansive poolside deck with a frothy "beach" read. On quiet mornings, sip your coffee on the patio while looking out at your hilltop view. If you must work while everyone else is playing (ugh), there’s a cozy BONUS OFFICE where you won’t be disturbed. On warm nights, head downtown (1.5 miles) for a free concert on the plaza or dinner with craft cocktails. Really, this 3-bed, 2-bath home is Lafayette living at its BEST! It's a spacious entertainer’s home and also perfectly positioned near the charming downtown village, renowned A+ schools, and minutes from BART and Hwy. 24.
The first thing you notice about 3361 Sweet Dr. is the home’s park-like entry from a peaceful path shaded by a mature pine tree and other foliage. Inside, the home boasts gleaming hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, and a floor plan that feels larger than its square footage. The great room, dining room, and updated eat-in kitchen flow together for seamless living. Glass doors in the great room and kitchen open to the backyard for easy California-style entertaining. More sliding glass doors open to the front and side yards. The great room features a beautiful brick fireplace. The bedroom wing includes a generous primary suite with double closets, full bathroom, pool views, and entry to the backyard.
