Property Description

Two properties are being sold. The house property, 1.5 acres (+/-), and a vacant lot, 0.8 acres (+/-). Total 2.3 acres (+/-). Quite possibly the only “Storybook” house in the Tri-Valley area, built in 1927 by renowned architect, W. R. Yelland, as a country home for a Berkeley family. The Pleasanton Weekly described the home as “a house that makes you smile.” It has many whimsical features such as gargoyles that spout rainwater. There have only been 4 owners. The current owners did extensive remodeling & rebuilt the foundation to conform to seismic standards while preserving historic design & structure. At nearly 800 feet elevation the property has beautiful views of the valley. The house property is one of the larger & more private lots in the Castlewood area. It is located on a cul-de-sac & abuts vacant land & Castlewood Golf Course, only 1.5 miles from I680. The vacant lot has outstanding valley & golf course views. It has water & sewer rights & is zoned for a single-family home.
