You will enjoy one of the best locations in all of Moraga. This elegant home is located in the desirable gated community of Sander's Ranch!  As you enter you are greeted by the warmth of the living room, large windows with amazing views, vaulted ceilings, and a beautiful granite fireplace. Luxury hardwood floors and designer touches take you through the grand entry out to a spectacular great room. The refined formal dining room provides wraparound windows, chair rail, and elegant custom designer touches.
There is a massive floor to ceiling stone fireplace with wood mantel located in the informal family room. The draperies and details throughout the home were crafted thoughtfully by designer Jeffrey Neve. The family room includes extensive built-in shelving, floor to ceiling windows, Hunter Douglas remote blinds, and a separate wet bar with a wine refrigerator. Off of the dining room is a large pantry and open kitchen with high-end cabinetry, a large center island, marble countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a cozy breakfast nook with sliding doors to an enchanting and private back yard.
Each bedroom has its own bathrooms, crown moldings, full walk-in closets, and cushy carpets for a comfortable home. As you enter through the double doors of your primary suite, you cannot help but notice the beautiful views, privacy, and surrounding Oak Trees. There is a separate balcony here that takes you to a spa for relaxation.  There are also built-in shelving, a gas fireplace, and an extra-large walk-in closet. The primary suite bathroom is tastefully remodeled and has heated floors, a large sunken tub, double sinks, and a separate walk-in shower.  
The outside play area and deck are easily visible from the kitchen, upstairs hallway, and the primary bedroom; so it’s easy to keep an eye on kids at play. The downstairs area offers a separate sitting room perfect for an au pair, in-laws, or private space for office and/or classroom. There is a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and an additional bedroom with access to the side yard, backyard, and garage.
The garage comfortably fits three cars and offers a fully owned solar system with 3 Tesla Powerwalls that provide backup power throughout the home. The garage includes epoxy flooring and an abundance of additional storage.
Take a walk into the backyard through your 1.24-acre property, bridge, sitting area, and enjoy the feeling you would get while walking through the forest and enjoying the surrounding nature.
