Designer-updated 3/2.5 MidCentury Ranch with Views

$1,630,000 1360 Contra Costa Dr, El Cerrito, CA 94530
Overlooking San Francisco/Golden Gate views, a block from Madera Elementary, this expansive Mid-Century rambler awaits on a 11,200-SF lot. Gleaming hardwood floors grace formal living and dining rooms focused on the view. Seamlessly connected yet tucked to the rear, your fireplaced family room opens to a level patio/play-yard and the open-space island kitchen. Quartz counters stretch seemingly for miles; new gas range, deep stainless sink, silent dishwasher and French-door fridge surround a central island with a second sous-chef prep sink. You decide if it's a breakfast nook or homework station steps away. A pantry closet, coffee-bar-worthy cabinet/counter wall, and laundry/mudroom (open to yard), abound with storage options. Three bedrooms, the primary en suite open to its own backyard deck, and an updated hall bath occupy their own wing. Downstairs: a 2-story 2-car garage with storage loft & surprise bonus space plus half-bath for hobbies, bear's lair, and even more storage.
