Tuscan-Inspired Villa in the Heart of Lafayette’s Happy Valley
4080 Happy Valley Road, Lafayette
Exquisite Happy Valley Home on Almost 1 Acre!
Positioned in the heart of Lafayette’s coveted Happy Valley, a Tuscan-inspired villa has been created under the artistic talents of noted architect, Doug McQuillan. With the final touches completed in 2018, almost every element of this home has been carefully crafted and artistically remodeled with an emphasis on quality and aesthetics… from the custom wrought iron railings that lead to the Antiqua front entry door… to the mahogany stairs, columns and moldings for the windows and doors.
The dramatic interior was designed to create an inviting living environment for all ages, with seamless transitions via elegant archways through most of the central living areas, and via numerous French doors to the expansive backyard on the home’s nearly one-acre lot.
The inviting two-story foyer greets guests with gorgeous travertine tile floors and a dramatic mahogany staircase that ascends to the upstairs living quarters framed by alcoves featuring hand-painted scenes of rural Tuscany. Archways transition to the stunning living room, dining room and family room… then to the adjacent chef’s kitchen wrapped in custom cabinetry, featuring a large, honed quartz center island, fireplace, media center, spacious dining area, and simulated hardwood porcelain tile floors. The stunning family room features its own media center, and a wine bar leads to the approximately 950 bottle wine cellar via a custom Antiqua entry door.
The upstairs living quarters feature a master bedroom suite with a sumptuous remodeled bathroom, as well as three secondary bedrooms and two bathrooms in a separate bedroom wing. One bedroom features an en suite bathroom, and the fifth bedroom is configured as an elegant office with glass entry doors. A secondary stairway allows convenient access to the bedroom wing from the kitchen/family room area.
The tranquil and beautiful outdoor environment embracing the home is architecturally integrated via the private terraces that lead outside from the living room and second floor living quarters, as well as the abundant windows and French doors that beckon you outdoors to the expansive backyard. The recently redesigned yard is planted with gorgeous drought tolerant native landscape bordered by rock walls and embraced by mature trees to enhance its privacy. A multitude of areas for outdoor entertaining, recreation and tranquil enjoyment await – including a fun petanque court to enjoy the French version of bocce ball.
The quality of this estate-caliber home is immediately evident in the meticulous attention to detail in its remodel, the selection of materials, and its distinctive Old World charm without sacrificing any of today’s important luxury amenities.
