modern Montclair beauty is the perfect place to relax, enjoy the view
from any number of decks, and delight in the surrounding quiet. Built in
1985 and thoughtfully updated, it is a light-filled and gracious
retreat. Stepped down from the street, the large, high ceiling of the
entryway and geometric window creates a grand welcome. The magnificent
views from every window provide an air of spaciousness to each room.
lower level has lots of living spaces - the living room has a beamed
ceiling, a stone fireplace and bay window seat that looks out onto a
tiered front garden. Three wraparound decks overlook the verdant canyon
and the bay, downtown Oakland, and the peninsula in the distance. The
dining room has sliding doors out to the deck, as do the kitchen and
family room, which makes indoor/outdoor entertaining effortless.
eat-in kitchen has a pretty hill view framed by a greenhouse window
over the sink. Granite counters, high-end appliances and a sweet
breakfast nook make this kitchen a true pleasure to use. The adjacent
family room has a wood-burning stove in the corner and sliding doors to
the dining deck.
the dramatic master suite is serene and lovely - a high, sloped ceiling
and doors to a private deck create a bright and airy ambiance. An
incredible spa-like bathroom is indulgent and elegant with a marble
floor; private WC; large, lacquered double vanity; glassed-in marble
shower with a rain showerhead; a luxurious soaking tub and amazing views
from all the windows. On this level there are two more bedrooms, one
enjoying the bay view, another facing the front with garden outlooks,
and a big, modern bathroom with chic details between them. There is also
a home office that has a bay window framing a lovely view of the
camellia and oak trees outside.
away in the Piedmont Pines area of Montclair, the location offers the
best of both worlds: though nestled among the trees, it is close to the
cafés, shops and restaurants of Montclair Village. Nearby is the
trailhead that accesses the 2500 acres of Joaquin Miller Park, Roberts
Regional Recreation Area and Redwood Regional Park. Additionally,
excellent public and private schools are close by, and easy freeway
access for commuters make this home ideally situated.
modern elegance, dramatic views and spectacular sunsets - this bright,
elegant home is the perfect refuge for friends and family.
