Resort-style luxury graces Lafayette hillside properties – The Mercury News

What does resort-style luxury look like in Lafayette?

Look no further than THE NINES, an enclave of ultra-luxurious custom estates with sweeping views of Mount Diablo and Briones open space.

Located in Lafayette’s Reliez Valley at 3198 Gloria Terrace, THE NINES has quickly become a highly desirable destination for those seeking an extraordinary property, contemporary design and a private, exclusive locale. Nine Homesites debuted in November. Four incredible homesites remain and aren’t expected to last long on the market.

The brainchild of local developer David Langon of Langon Construction in Alamo, THE NINES is built on a 7.5-acre site. Each property responds to its unique topography with minimal impact on the land.

The contemporary designs epitomize flexible floor plans with multiple offices/guestrooms, home fitness areas, filtered water and air systems, custom built-ins, gourmet kitchens, stacking sliding glass doors, and oversize garages. Enjoy the pre-conceptualized plans for open floor plans designed with lots of natural light, optimizing the views, indoor-outdoor living with built-in outdoor kitchens and sumptuous primary suites with spa-inspired en suites. The homes utilize healthy and sustainable building materials, solar, security systems, and feature coveted flexible-use space to customize for your unique lifestyle.

According to Langon, new homes in Lafayette are hard to find, and contemporary designs capturing this level of luxury are especially rare. The floor plans range from 4,000 to 5,400+ square feet and are designed with seamless flows to outdoor spaces. All the lots can accommodate pools and outdoor kitchens.

Currently available is a premium 1.7-acre level lot perfect for the custom, two-level design that features almost 5,200+ square feet of living space with five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, including a main-level primary suite, an office, a bonus room, two laundry rooms, a flexible-use study/playroom area, an upstairs balcony, and an optional pool bathroom. Fabulous outdoor space includes about 1,100+ square feet of veranda off the formal dining room and living room. A gourmet kitchen has a butler’s pantry and access to the three-car garage. Picture an evening overlooking your infinity pool and watching the sunset.

Another almost acre lot with sunset views features about 4,600 square feet on two levels with more than 1,100 square feet of outdoor entertaining space on the veranda and terrace space with a built-in kitchen. This model also has a main-level primary suite, four bedrooms, and a bonus room on a lower level that seamlessly connects to the backyard pool and patio.

Two additional properties are available, including a half-acre homesite with a deep private setback dotted with towering trees and another approximately half-acre level homesite at the beginning of the scenic cul-de-sac.

THE NINES, located just off Reliez Valley Road in Lafayette, is conveniently close to the charming downtown district, BART, freeway access, and the top-rated schools in the Lafayette and Acalanes school districts. It is also within walking distance to miles of trails and open space at Briones Regional Park. Downtown Walnut Creek’s Broadway Plaza, BART and restaurants are conveniently nearby.
