208 San Antonio Way, Walnut Creek (Sold)
208 San Antonio Way – Spacious Eichler with In-Law/ADU Potential
This one-of-a-kind Eichler home boasts 6 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms and is ideal for larger families, multi-generational living, or for those seeking an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) to offset the mortgage. Originally designed by architects Jones & Emmons and subsequently expanded (with permits) to include an additional 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths along with a separate entrance, 208 San Antonio Way now consists of a total of 2,287 SF (per tax records). The interior of the home is interconnected and seamlessly flows from one area to the next and light is abundant given that almost every room has sliding glass doors with direct access to the exterior. As is typical with Eichler architecture, the merging of the interior with the exterior is on full display in this home as well. The private yard features several distinct outdoor areas alongside a gated swimming pool and patio, perfect for that California lifestyle. On those days when it’s simply too hot to lounge around outside, one can retreat back into the temperate interior made possible by the dual-zone central air conditioning.
Upon entering the home’s main living area one is greeted with the open layout of the galley kitchen that extends to all four separate wings of the home. Vaulted tongue-and-groove wood ceilings along with the quintessential mid-century modern globe lighting strike that perfect balance between the classic Eichler style and the modern upgrades that are on display in the remodeled kitchen and fireplace surround, as well as the many updated dual paned windows. Adjacent to the living room is the family room with clerestory windows and an en-suite bathroom. A portion of the garage was converted to an additional bedroom and can easily serve as a small office or exercise room. The master suite along with the remaining 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms are all located on the northern wing of the home. A separate entrance in the rear allows for easy egress and privacy for extended family or guests. ADU options abound with this unique layout. (buyers to verify feasibility and requirements)
