Welcome to 851 Avalon Court, a classic California ranch style home located in the popular Lafayette trail neighborhood. This prime downtown location is an easy walk to town, trail and highly regarded public schools.
Constructed in 1954 by renowned developer, Marshant Builders, the 3 bedroom 2 bath (1602 sq. ft.) floor plan begins with a Dutch-door front entry that opens to a large living room with hardwood floors, wood beam ceilings, brick fireplace and built-in shelves. The country-style kitchen has tile counter tops, knotty pine wood cabinets, wood ceilings and adjoining dining/family room. All three bedrooms have hardwood floors and the bathrooms are beautifully maintained with period-touches and decorative tile.
Story-book charm is created by the ranch-style fence, lush green lawns and colorful flower beds. The flat nearly ¼ acre lot has two separate yard spaces including aggregate concrete patio, large lawn area and mature apple, orange and lemon trees…and the majestic heritage oak is the center-piece of this lovely property.
Enjoy this wonderful close-in location that is across the street from Stanley Intermediate School and around the corner from Lafayette Elementary School and just a short walk to BART, Lafayette library, shopping and fine restaurants.
