2775 San Carlos Dr, Walnut Creek (Sold)
2775 San Carlos Dr – Beautifully Restored Rancho San Miguel Eichler
Recently and tastefully remodeled, the home’s mid-century architectural character was not compromised in the process. The bathrooms have been fully updated to meet today’s needs and standards while the rest of the home has been refreshed with the addition of new vinyl tile flooring, new interior mahogany wood paneling, new mahogany doors and hardware, fresh paint both inside and out, as well as a fully restored original Eichler kitchen. Genuine details abound for the mid-century modern enthusiast such as the refurbished built-in Thermador oven and cooktop, refinished sliding door cabinets, Eichler’s signature swing-out kitchen table, and globe lighting throughout. The outside of the home received plenty of attention too with new backyard landscaping including fresh sod grass, patio, gravel aprons, decomposed granite paths, a block retaining wall, an automated sprinkler system, and a French drain that runs the entirety of the yard out onto the street.
Sited on a corner lot and on the same block as the Rancho San Miguel Swim Club, 2775 San Carlos is ideally located in one of Walnut Creek’s most desirable neighborhoods and school districts. At 1,321 SF (per tax records), with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, the home’s open floor plan leaves ample room for entertaining as well as the stay-at-home lifestyle that is redefining our current at-home needs and desires. The post and beam construction with floor-to-ceiling glass walls and sliders allow for a seamless flow from the home’s interior to its sizable back yard, accessible directly from the living, dining, and master bedrooms. Backing up to the Ygnacio Canal Trail affords extra privacy with only one adjoining neighboring home on the northwestern side of the property and provides easy access to a network of trails that connect all the way to Mount Diablo. A wood burning fireplace and a functional radiant heating system allow for ideal ambient temperatures while adding a level of nostalgia at the same time.
The Rancho San Miguel Eichler community is an enclave of 337 Eichler homes surrounded by nearby open space, playgrounds, dog parks, and an adjacent shopping plaza with coffee shops and restaurants. Rancho San Miguel consists of highly regarded schools, is close to the John Muir medical facility, downtown Walnut Creek, the RSM Swim Club, and Heather Farm Park. Conveniently located in close proximity to BART, public transit, and freeways making this an ideal commuter location.
