About Don Piper

I am a professional in wealth management and work in nearby Walnut Creek (less than 7 miles away)

Don Piper purchased this house in 1986

Why Don Piper chose The Bay Area

This is my home. I hardly ever used the lower portion so I have had it professionally converted. It is a wonderful place to stay if you like quiet, a valley view and quick access to San Francisco.

What makes this house unique

Lots of natural light, tranquil views, large patio area for sitting out side, jump in the pool to cool off in the summer or sit in front of the outdoor gas fireplace.

Property was comfortable for our two week stay.

  • 4 of 5

Had a good orientation from the owner upon our arrival. Bed was very comfortable and really appreciated having use of a washer and dryer. Spent most of our time cooking at our son's apartment and would have wanted a few more necessities had we been cooking there. Internet was spotty and slow most of the time.

Coffee beans and grinder a nice touch.

View a lot of vegetation. There is a large patio with outdoor fireplace and a swimming pool, which we couldn't use at this time of year.

And yes we would stay there again.

Finally there is a car available.

Excellent! 5 Stars

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in Don's unit for several years. Don is personable and very organized. The unit is clean and tidy with a well equipped kitchen and quality bedding. We love having the fireplace which makes the unit very cozy.

The neighborhood is lovely and a wonderful walking area including being able to walk into town. The patio and.lush views are delightful.
