An extraordinary estate property, one of the largest in Moraga, is rarely seen on the market.
The impeccable craftsmanship of Branagh Development construction and the brilliant architectural design by the Talon Design Group combine to create this hilltop masterpiece that majestically sits on more than 6.5 acres.
Escape to 16 Quail Crossing, rise above the fog and into the sunshine where captivating, unobstructed hillside views are framed from just about every window in the more than 5,800 square feet of living space. Indoor-outdoor living is a breeze, with multiple French doors opening to backyard patios and venues. Gather around the gas fire pit, dine or relax. Envision the possibilities of adding an outdoor kitchen, pool, cabana and more.
Five bedrooms and five bathrooms, including three en suites, an executive office, play/game room, two family rooms, formal living and dining rooms, plus a well-appointed chef’s kitchen, offer lots of room for an active lifestyle. The expansive property also provides an opportunity to add a guesthouse, ADU, vineyard, orchard, horse stables or consider the possibility of subdividing.
Steps from Rancho Laguna Park and miles of trails, the suburban location with a rural feel is an ultra-private sanctuary. Country quiet, but city close, it has convenient access to downtown Moraga, Lafayette and Orinda, freeways, BART, and is only about a 30-mile drive from downtown San Francisco via Canyon Road.
The East Coast Traditional-style architecture showcases extensive millwork and wainscoting, high ceilings, decorative crown molding, recessed lights, and hickory hardwood floors throughout its light-drenched, two-level interior.
The executive office behind a double-door entry is just off the inviting and elegant foyer. This spacious room has a front-facing view window and a private entrance from the front porch.
Wainscoting continues in the formal dining room, an expansive room designed to accommodate large gatherings and features a front-facing window, a chandelier suspended from medallion molding, and access to the butler’s pantry.
Two sets of French doors extend the formal living room space to the backyard flagstone patio, where you can enjoy the views of the rolling hills and protected open space. This elegant room also has a gas fireplace with a carved mantel.
Step into the heart of the home, a beautifully designed chef’s kitchen that features white shaker-style cabinetry, honed marble slab counters with a sleek subway tile backsplash, a large island/breakfast bar, a built-in workstation, a porcelain farmhouse sink, and a walk-in pantry. Appliances include a Wolf dual-oven range, a Viking microwave, a Miele dishwasher and a Sub-Zero refrigerator.
The kitchen is open to the casual dining area and the large family room that features exposed trusses on the vaulted ceiling. French doors and a slider offer an easy indoor-outdoor flow. An oversize picture window in this room frames the hillside views like a piece of art.
The primary suite enjoys a private wing on the main level and features a built-in window seat, an ideal retreat to enjoy the view. This room has French door access to the backyard patios, built-in cabinetry and dual walk-in closets. The en suite is appointed with Carrera marble on its double-sink vanity, around the jetted tub and from floor to ceiling in the walk-in shower.
A second family room on the upper level is a large open area with a soaring vaulted ceiling and French doors that open onto a large deck. Also on this level is a bonus room ideal for a play/game room or home theater. This room also has a vaulted ceiling, dormer windows and a wet bar with an under-counter refrigerator.
Two bedrooms with front-facing dormer windows share a Jack and Jill bathroom featuring a dual-sink vanity, separate tub, and shower. Two additional bedrooms on this level have en suites.
Additional features include a three-car garage, three HVAC systems and a 400-square-foot (not included in the square footage) unfinished bonus storage room or possible home gym, additional office or bedroom. A main-level laundry room is near the mudroom designed with built-in storage. Top-rated Moraga schools are also nearby, including within a mile of Camino Pablo Elementary, about 1.3 miles from Joaquin Moraga Intermediate, and is less than 4 miles to Campolindo High School.
