About 919 Hawthorne Drive
Custom built in 2002, this Lafayette Trails Area home features an open plan modern design. Set among older homes in a long established Lafayette neighborhood, you’re just steps from the Lafayette-Moraga Trail and minutes to downtown Lafayette. The spacious entry invites you into the living area with cathedral ceilings, a fireplace, and French doors opening to the wraparound porch. The kitchen, just off the great room, features top of the line appliances and an island. Warm tones compliment the soaring ceilings to give a cozy, welcoming feel to a living area large enough to host family and friends.
Serve dinner on the Southern inspired wraparound porch, straight from the plumbed barbecue, or move to the formal dining room featuring built in corner cabinets and French doors of its own.
The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and windows looking out to Redwoods. A fireplace set into the wall adds a cozy feel, complimented by built-ins ready to display your favorite family photos, mementos from your travels, or your favorite books. An enormous closet and master bath finish the suite with a fast fill Jacuzzi tub and a shower that doubles as a steam room. Lots of storage and two sinks make it practical as well as luxurious. French doors open to the porch and the level back yard with views of the hills.
Each of the bedrooms is spacious with large closets. The front room serves as the fourth bedroom, an office, or a den. Light streams through the picture window which overlooks the flowering trees in the front yard. A cathedral ceiling finishes the room and creates an open feel.
A separate laundry room, yes room, means lots of storage for all of your household needs – convenient and out of sight.
Mature landscaping and majestic redwoods frame the level back yard, offering ample play space, views, and privacy. Feeling social? Watch the world go by from the front porch.

Take a Tour of 919 Hawthorne Drive
The Trails Area is highly coveted for a reason. Only 500 feet from your front door, the Lafayette-Moraga Trail is the meeting place for friends and babies and dogs, as well as the fitness minded. Roll or stroll along the trail’s entire 7½-mile length. Meet a friend and start your day with an early morning workout. Watch out for the bikes though. The kids are heading to the schools located just off the trail. And those schools with the bike racks? All of Lafayette’s schools are rated a 10 by greatschools.org.
The trail will also lead you to downtown Lafayette which offers many dining options at La Fiesta Square and downtown. Visit the Lafayette Library and Learning Center to take part in programs created by the region’s leading arts, culture, and educational institutions. Or if your plans for the day are more practical or recreational, Lafayette offers all the benefits of more urban living with one major exception – you can park. The BART station and easy freeway access puts the Bay Area and beyond at your finger tips.
Don’t miss another Lafayette treasure, the Lafayette Reservoir. Complete the circuit as the mist rises off the water in the morning. Bring a picnic or rent a paddleboat. It’s no wonder that Lafayette is so friendly. There are so many ways to meet your neighbors and enjoy the blend of urban amenities and small town living that gives people so much to smile about.
