Beginning at street level the lot flows gently upward. Set about 40' back from the street you will find an existing 1947 single family home. This home is habitable but requires extensive foundation and remodeling work. The value of this property is in the 2.59 acres of land that is within walking distance of Downtown Orinda and BART. As you continue walking toward the back of the lot, toward the middle front, you will find an area of steeper upslope. However, shortly thereafter the topography returns to a gentler grade and a spot ideal for a second home - maybe even with views of downtown Orinda to the North and the Orinda/Moraga Hills to the South. Note - a separately parceled second home is possible as after meeting with Orinda's planning department the owner was advised that this lot does qualify for an SB 9 lot split - meaning you can turn this one lot into two.
