The appeal is immediate stepping into this Alamo home located in Bryan Terrace, a spectacular enclave of 46 homes at the top of Stone Valley Road. Bordering open space at the foot of Mount Diablo, it is beautifully updated with fresh interior paint, gorgeous parquet hardwood floors, new bedroom carpeting, high ceilings and a light-drenched interior.
Behind an inviting paver walkway and slate tile front porch is about 2,620 square feet of living space at 134 Golden Ridge Road which includes spacious formal rooms that seamlessly connect to outdoor patios, a beautifully updated chef’s kitchen open to a large family room with custom built-ins and backyard access. There are three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms.
A gas fireplace with a granite surround, a carved mantel and built-in cabinetry anchor the formal living room, a spacious area with room to create a music niche or ideal space for a game table and sliding glass doors that open to the backyard. The formal dining room also has a sliding glass door that opens to the centralized courtyard.
The kitchen is filled with natural light and features granite slab counters, a stone tile backsplash, custom cabinetry with pullout shelves, a large island illuminated by pendant lights, and a garden window over the divided sink. Viking appliances include a four-burner range with a decorative tile backsplash, a pot filler, a second oven, a microwave and a Thermador refrigerator. The kitchen is open to a casual dining nook with a built-in window seat.
The same attention to detail is evident in the adjacent family room, which features a vaulted ceiling and beautiful built-in cabinetry on both sides of the gas fireplace. Each side features granite slab counters, upper glass-faced cabinets and under-counter wine refrigerators. One side also has a hammered stainless sink and a decorative tile backsplash to match the design in the kitchen. The fireplace features a granite slab surround and a raised hearth with a framed niche to mount a flat-screen TV above it. Sliding glass doors also open to the backyard from this room.
Behind a double-door entry is the primary suite that features a vaulted ceiling, crown molding, new carpet and a dual-sided fireplace that it shares with the en suite. The en suite also has a vaulted ceiling and crown molding. It is beautifully appointed with leathered granite counters, a dual-sink vanity, makeup vanity, a jetted tub and custom cabinetry. The large walk-in shower features floor-to-ceiling granite slab walls. The walk-in closet offers generous space with built-in organizers. A sliding glass door opens to the centralized courtyard.
Two additional bedrooms include one with front-facing view windows, plantation shutters and an en suite with a furniture-style vanity and a tub/shower combination with decorative tile.
Step outside and let the tranquility of the private space surround you. The expansive deck and flagstone patio offer ample space for outdoor dining and gatherings while enjoying the unobstructed hillside views, shade trees, and garden beds.
Additional features include a laundry room with a utility sink and cabinets, a two-car garage, cedar floors in the closets, and a leaded-glass paneled front door.
Bryan Terrace is nestled in the oak-dotted hills at the end of Stone Valley Road beyond Bryan Ranch, with convenient access to hiking trails and a community swimming pool and tennis court.
