About 451 Fernwood Drive

Welcome Home

With classic modern characteristics, you’ll feel a grander sense of space articulated by high angled ceilings and large windows, allowing for an abundance of natural light and a seamless transition to the outdoors. The best of California Living with a private park-like setting and majestic valley horizon views. 451 Fernwood Drive is a home that has an undeniable connection between home and nature.

A floorplan that just works! Enjoy creating meals (with vegetables from the garden) in the open kitchen surrounded by big view windows, an eat-in breakfast area, stainless steel appliances, resurfaced cabinets in modern white finish, EarthStone quartz countertops and a wonderful connection with the family room so everyone feels a part of the conversation.

Separate living and dining rooms all with high ceilings, period finish details and (again) big windows to invite the outdoors in. Further features include a freshly painted interior, a separate laundry room, and beautiful chocolate maple hardwood flooring that runs throughout the upper level of the home.

Thoughtfully proportioned and oversized bedrooms give everyone the space they need. The primary suite has a patio sliding door that leads to the backyard, hot-tub and pool. What a perfect place for a quiet moment with a good book and a cup of coffee.

The fourth bedroom (and third bathroom) is located downstairs with separate patio access. The space is huge and offers such potential for a variety of uses such as an oversized bedroom, additional family room, expanded office or exercise studio space. The possibilities are endless. Also included downstairs is the “Bonus Utility Room” that could be used as a fun arts and crafts workshop, for additional storage or, with vision, be arranged to make the downstairs a separate living space altogether. Just something to think (or dream) about for sure.

You’ll find that what is so breathtaking about this property is how the home is positioned on this amazing lot. It feels like the landscape is embracing the home.

The two level, park-like setting with lush green lawn and mature landscaping is interspersed with pops of color that transition throughout the year. The garden features raised beds with smart “Critter Control” cages (easy to open and close) and drip systems. A Farm-to-Table experience, you’ll find established lemon, pomegranate and mandarin orange trees, rows of actual Hops for beer making, established bountiful grape vines, planted tomatoes, fresh herbs and strawberries.

The deck off the family and living rooms seamlessly transitions to the backyard. Offering plenty of space for everyone, it is perfect for entertaining, dining alfresco, taking in the sunsets or watching the 4th of July fireworks from the Moraga Country Club – quite the perfect skybox for a festive evening.

The sparkling pool is calling for fun pool parties or just a refreshing splash during hot summer days. And, if a good soak is desired, the hot tub is perfect for a relaxing moment.

A very special property that has had only two owners. A home perfectly positioned on the lot to take in the views and contours of the property. The .78-acre property provides plenty of room for entertaining, gardening and to take in the expansive view. Some say: “Life is better with a View.” Maybe there’s something to that. Calming, uplifting and restorative, this beautiful panoramic view of the Moraga Valley changes with the seasons. The ambient light creates a stunning, ever-changing piece of natural artwork to enjoy every day.

Ideal location that’s super close to all Moraga has to offer including shopping, restaurants, a brewery, year-round farmer’s market, transportation, a library, the Lafayette Moraga Trail and the Moraga Commons Park. Part of the award-winning Moraga and Acalanes School districts.
