'Lakewood California Craftsman'
Decades of love and a pride of ownership are responsible for this private estate built and designed by its current owners. 181 Alegra meets the needs and necessities of modern day living. It is apart of Walnut Creek’s Lakewood Lake designation area, which allows only a small number of homeowner’s the option to hold membership and Lake access at the beach nearby.
A driveway entrance will take you through an opening between Heritage Oaks and wall of colorful Pyracantha. .65 acres of land provides the back drop for this truly amazing ‘California Craftsman’, which is completely landscaped and surrounded by well established Redwood, Citrus, and Oak. The motor court is reached beyond grassy knolls and gorgeous groups of prominent Ginko trees. Pleasing curb appeal and overlaid portico and porch are supported and flanked by reccessed columns and river rock stone facades. Architectural prowess is seen in its broad-proportions, with a character so natural it blends in with the surrounding landscape.
The presidential shingle roof has solar panels, open gables and intersecting roof valleys, allowing for voluminous vaulting in the great rooms and all of the four en-suite bedrooms. Just as the ceilings are tall, the hallways are wide in this simple yet functional floor plan. Entertainment rooms include both 5.1 surround sound, 83" flat screen TV and a 120" drop down movie screen. Both include two of the home's four remote controlled stone fireplaces, and Savant Home Automation System distributed by Niles Audio via 6 zones (both indoors and out) via 11 (included with the sale) flat screen TVs, Marantz receiver, JVC 4k Projector, and 2 X-Box systems.

There are 2 Bosch Dishwashers, 2 Rohl Sinks, 2 Brizo Smart Touch Sensitive Faucets, and Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration that all accompany a 10' Island and kitchen nook dining area sizable enough for a seating of 6.
Both the Main House and Guest are equipped with $100,000 of Automated Hunter Douglas and Castec Shades that cover beautiful high-end Sierra Pacific Windows. The blinds are both programmed to adjust to the Sun as it moves overhead. Skylights, four patio door areas, and a fully equipped outdoor kitchen allow you to enjoy Walnut Creek's beautiful weather and Sunshine.
There are 2 HVAC units in the main house and 1 in the Second. Both have Grohe bathroom fixtures, Toto toilets, and Porcelanosa tiles. There are two tankless water heaters, and a third set of washer and dryers in the cottage. The Cottage has a full kitchen and double shower heads in the bathroom.

Diablo and Shell Ridge’s open space, and within a walkable .6 miles from Downtown Walnut Creek.
At 3,700 square feet, the main home still made room for two large wine racks and a traditional dining room which can comfortably accomodate 10 guests. Contemporary elements of exposed wood beams are a stylistic choice that match wide plank Oak floors and outdoors. A designated laundry room has an automated doggie door leading to the pool deck, plenty of cabinet and storage, counter top, and two sets of washer and dryers.
An enormous Privot Privacy Hedge runs west along the salt-water pool. You can look up and enjoy hearing the hillside Waterfall from a lounge chair in the pool's Cabo Deck.
