421 Summit is a custom-designed home crafted by architect and designer Dave Ruffin on a spectacular view lot in the Lakewood Community of Walnut Creek. Plenty of thought and care was taken to ensure both the quality of construction and consideration of the land's inherent beauty. The views are private and panoramic - spanning across a multitude of newly constructed decks, retaining walls, and Anderson windows and sliders. This is an entertainer's dream in a setting with very little noise - just the rolling hills of a community reminiscent of an Alp setting in Switzerland. See the little houses below and enjoy nearby trailheads to Shell Ridge and Mt. Diablo - still a short drive to Downtown Walnut Creek.
The property was built with 6’ walls, carbon fiber door and beam, there is a fireproof siding and water-resistant decking throughout. Everything was newly constructed down to the studs including a new HVAC system, electrical, plumbing and a Bosch tankless water heater with 225,00 BTUs - one of the very best the industry has to offer.
Presidential composition shingle roof was recently replaced, EV protected Anderson doors and sliders, special select custom mahogany cabinets, that supplement a gorgeous Blanco stone three-section sink. The custom Zephyr range hood comes down between four enormous skylights in the chef’s kitchen meeting an oversized kitchen island with a beautiful, thick and imported slab of exotic Brazilian granite and quartz. The beautiful backsplash is embellished by substantial undercount lighting hidden throughout the cabinetry and electrical outlets have been placed throughout for a television or lighting for artwork.
Vaulted ceilings, skylights, solar tubes, tons of light, and beautiful sliders and windows accompany every room so that you can walk out on your deck and enjoy one of the best views Lakewood has to offer. No windows are looking back at you when you gaze out of the most unobstructed lush green views of the hillsides and homes beneath. This is why people pay such close attention to the Lakewood community. Mt. Diablo and Shell ridge catch the sunset in such a way that they glow when you watch them in the evening.
There are two primary suites on the main level, both have vaulted ceilings and fantastic closets. In the main primary, there is a beautiful sliding barn door that matches the imported eucalyptus flooring. All bathrooms upstairs have Panasonic fans and the solar tubes and heating make the room comfortable for that early morning riser! German bathtub is top of the line and flanked by a bank of tall windows which bring the light in. The shower has two rainfall nozzles and massagers so you can shower with a partner at the same time. All the bathroom vanities are floating in modern European finishes and provide that luxury look you come to expect in a home of this nature.
To put it in simple terms - I would like to describe the exterior as being built to last. Both decks have been built with Timbertech artificial maintenance-free material and lighting and the undersides have been stained twice for maintenance purposes. They light up in the evening and integrate into a spectacular fashion with the flat grassy entertainment areas. Feel free to entertain safely with your children, Aupair or friends in the back and save some room to possibly construct a modular pool option. There is a solar system installed by SunRun that produces an average of 23-25 KW a day during summer months to cover all your electricity expenses! This house has two sets of washers/dryers hookups and is ready to go for the new owner!
