The quaint town of Lafayette, California is centrally located just 23 miles east of San Francisco, an hour and a half from the sunny beaches of the Pacific Ocean, three hours from the snow caps of Lake Tahoe and 50 miles north of Silicon Valley on an easy stretch of the 680 corridor. Offering one-of-a-kind restaurants, boutique shops, and a beautiful reservoir with a 4.7 mile paved walkway surrounding it, Lafayette is a small town with a population of slightly below 30,000 people.

Situated on 11 flat acres behind ornate electric gates, this private gated retreat formerly owned by the Kaiser family is a perfect escape for a family, a couple, or a solopreneur who loves to entertain and host gatherings of friends, loved ones, and business elites. The main house boasts over 16,000 square feet of personality, faux painting, brick flooring and high end amenities while the guest house easily spreads out over 6000 square feet of open space with a wet bar, the potential for a steam room, and a spacious walk in closet large enough to be considered its own room. Both homes offer ample covered parking garages, sparkling pools, additional patios, separate kitchens and sitting areas for outdoor entertaining, and luscious landscaping designed with privacy and peace of mind. Come home to 940 Reliez Station Lane. When you own a luxury retreat such as this, you never need to go on vacation again
