The sophisticated dining room, on the other hand, is ornamented with an exquisite wrought iron chandelier, lit up alcove ceiling, niches, and custom drapery while overlooking the front yard and the sun drenching views of the Mt. Diablo mountain range beyond. Move over to the exotic chefs kitchen and you observe it opens up to the family room and the breakfast nook in the most enticing way.
