The story of 2129 Ascot Drive, #1
Just one block from the shops, cafes, and movie theater enlivening Rheem Village, Ascot Drive remains green and serene. And where Ascot ends, a ridge trail begins, offering scenic walking, hiking, and biking through open space. Also conveniently nearby are Moraga’s celebrated K-12 schools and access to public transportation.
Amid the grassy, tranquil setting, this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom townhouse-style condo, a desirable end unit, opens broadly from its dine-in kitchen to a private flagstone terrace. Outlined by a garden border including a variety of graceful Japanese maples, its flagstone pavers in organic shapes fit together like puzzle pieces. More than an extension of the home, it forms an enchanting gateway to the interior. Come through the garden door, giving way to this enclosed outdoor living space that sets a tone of sanctuary and flows seamlessly to the interior.
Upon entry, earthy natural-stone flooring extends from the foyer to the kitchen. The kitchen makes the most of its courtyard connection; one wall dedicated to expansive sliding-glass doors offers a garden outlook plus direct access for al fresco dining and lounging. Supplying visual appeal within the well-appointed kitchen, fresh-white cabinetry complements black granite counters with shimmery flecks that radiate dimension and light. All stainless, appliances by Samsung, Electrolux, and Bosch include a French-door refrigerator and induction-heat cooktop.
Refined natural elements combine in the living-dining room. Vibrant wood floors reflect polish, while plantation-shuttered windows deliver filtered light and leafy sightlines. A massive flagstone-hearth fireplace correlates in scale to the room’s broad dimensions and in its composition to the terrace pavers. Also reiterating elements for stylistic symmetry, the powder room combines plantation shutters and stone flooring akin to the kitchen.
Distanced ideally from public spaces, bedrooms occupy the second floor. Carpeting generates coziness within all three, and clean-lined plantation shutters invite or effectively block sunlight. Two bedrooms feature generous double-door closets, while the master suite integrates an elongated triple-door version. Master and hall bathrooms harmonize stylistically, their double-sink vanities topped by stone counters gracefully flecked over a white background. One is equipped with a jetted tub, the other with a stall shower.
Offering comprehensive livability, the unit includes plentiful storage, washer and dryer, and carport.
