“This house is in a neighborhood on the edge of Las Trampas Regional Wilderness Park, where hiking and riding trails wind through an expanse of nearly 6,000 acres. On this side of the park, about a 10-minute drive from the house, is the Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site, a Spanish Colonial house that was occupied by the playwright in the 1930s and 1940s.
The center of town, about five minutes away, has a library and a well-ranked public high school. Oakland is about a half-hour drive; San Francisco and San Jose are 45 minutes away.

Indoors: A long driveway leads from the street to the entrance, where the front door opens into a long foyer with hardwood floors.
At the end of the foyer is the main living area, which has a large A-frame-style window that looks out onto the surrounding trees. Built into one wall are wood bookshelves and a fireplace with a simple black tile surround.
Behind the living room is an open dining area and a kitchen with granite counters. On the other side of the kitchen is another dining area, in front of glass doors that open to the back patio.
From the foyer, a hallway extends toward the right side of the house, where there are three bedrooms. At the far end of the hall is the primary suite, which has a large walk-in closet and a bathroom with access to outdoor stairs leading to the swimming pool. Two more bedrooms, roughly equal in size, are also off the main hallway; one has wood-paneled walls and is currently used as a home office. They share a bathroom with a combination tub and shower.
A staircase in the foyer leads to the lower level, where there is a spacious den with sliding-glass doors that open to the pool area, as well as another bedroom and a full bathroom.
