Come for the wine country... stay for the home.
This quintessential Italian farm house is situated in a cul-de-sac in the highly-desired neighborhood of Los Olivos in the heart of south Livermore. With plenty of extra parking in front of this home (not common for South Livermore), this private gated estate is the perfect balance of relaxed living, luxury amenities, and highly functional living spaces.
Simply arriving to 2942 Talinga Court feels heavenly. A cloud of white Floribunda Roses encompass the entire front yard, making you think; “this must be what it feels like to walk amongst the clouds.” Coming all the way into the house through the covered porch and landing in the foyer, you immediately appreciate the formal setting of the light-filled dining and living rooms. Dark, distressed, hardwood floors feel warm under your feet as your eye is drawn to the 10” crown molding and soft earth tones throughout.
The everyday living space of this home has to be one of its best attributes. The large, open kitchen with island is open to the sizable family room and features a light-filled eating area large enough for a farm table for eight or more! The kitchen boasts a six-burner Wolf range, stainless Kitchen Aid appliances, and three-basin sink with industrial style faucet. A dish washer so quiet, you will run it while your guests are still in the kitchen! The Butler’s Pantry connects the kitchen to the dining room and it is more like a “Staff’s Pantry” it is so large. Tons of counter space, cabinets and two closet pantries.
The family room living area is complete with built in 64” TV and five-point surround sound entertainment, that stays! Adjacent to the family room is the bonus room; office, playroom, study, second family room… you name it; it's an extra space you can define for your needs.
Continuing outside to the backyard oasis, your family and friends will love swimming in the Pebble Tech pool comfortably heated by solar. The perfect place to escape the 100 degree Summer days we enjoy in Livermore as well as evening swimming when it cools down. Enjoying a heated pool without the PG&E bill is indeed a luxury. The 24-panel solar for the house electricity saves you about $1000 annually in electrical costs. Additionally, the house is wired to run on a gas generator in the event there is a loss in PG&E service.
Retiring upstairs you will find four bedrooms, three bathrooms, tech center, laundry room and lots of light in the grand hallway. The master suite is very spacious with crown molding and lots of windows to take in the views of surrounding vineyards and hills. The master bath is complete with separate vanities, soaking tub, spacious stall shower, and large walk-in closet. In addition to the master suite, there is another en-suite bedroom and bath and then a Jack & Jill bath between the other two bedrooms.
If you should decide to leave this gated luxury estate and stretch your legs, the neighborhood park is just adjacent to the home and just two blocks away is the walking and equestrian trail that leads to the Iron Horse trail which can take you all the way to Walnut Creek or in the other direction through the wine country of Livermore. Sycamore Grove Regional Park is directly outside the neighborhood with the largest collection of Sycamore trees in California. A walk or ride through this mile and a half park will land you at the Wente Restaurant, tasting room, grill and spectacular Greg Norman Golf Course. Wente is Livermore’s most prized property for fine dining, golf, tasting, casual out-door dining, and outdoor concerts. Venturing beyond Wente is the trail head to the Del Valle Regional Park. All walking distance from your home. Not to mention the three wineries that flank the neighborhood and can easily be walked or a leisurely bike ride.
