Rare Northgate property, exquisite home, dressage arena, stable & 2 cottages
Walnut Creek, Contra Costa County, California
Welcome to Applegate Farm, one of North Gate's premier equestrian estates. This is a rare opportunity with a magical combination. The main house features a gorgeous updated kitchen & an open concept, spacious living area that offers spectacular daylight, serene hills views and a sense of warmth. Positioned on over 2.5 usable acres, this property is a dream come true for the active equestrian.
Equestrian features include: regulation size (lighted) dressage arena with all-weather footing, six-stall barn with level paddocks, hay room, tack room & wash rack. You'll love the convenience of this location! Nestled at the foot of Mount Diablo, you'll enjoy easy access to miles of nearby open space trails, while still being within walking distance of top rated schools and conveniently located to shopping, dining & so much more!
In addition to the main house, you'll find two cottages near the back of the property, offering endless possibilities for extended family living, caretaker units, or rental income. The positioning of the cottages, together with mature landscape, offers excellent privacy and separation from the main house. Heritage Oaks create a beautiful country ambience and welcome shade in the warm months.
A detached garage with a charming 2 car carport features one garage bay that has been converted into a great home office. You'll love the Chicken Palace and fenced in vegetable garden, large entertaining deck (perfect for summer nights/outdoor movies) and most of all the welcoming, wrap around front porch.
The North Gate neighborhood offers a true country lifestyle, with a strong community feel. Enjoy the rare combination of usable acreage, without being in an isolated location. Neighbors share the passion of an equestrian/ranch lifestyle and horse owners' rights are protected.
