Features


Extensively remodeled in recent years with the highest level of detail, this home provides a new contemporary take on a classic mid-century form of architecture.  Originally built in 1958, the home was designed to take full advantage of the private and peaceful vistas across the hills of Piedmont.  The original charm has been maintained while the inviting lifestyle of open rooms and easy indoor/outdoor transitions has been enhanced.

 

The single-story home is level-in from the street along a wide walkway to a gracious double doorway.  The entry opens to reveal high ceilings and the first glimpse of the sunny patio and manicured gardens beyond.  To the right is the expansive formal living room with high ceilings, a sleek, oversized fireplace and walls of light filled windows. To the left, are the guest closet and elegant powder room.  The formal dining room features custom lighting and a beautiful wall of beveled mirror panels. 

 

The inviting kitchen and family room provide the perfect place for all to gather.  The family room enjoys a brick faced fireplace and hearth plus built-ins for entertainment systems, books and collections.  A custom desk area provides a tidy home office.  French doors open out to access the patio and view.  The kitchen features custom European cabinetry, top of the line appliances, massive slab granite counters and deep, stainless sinks.  There is a convenient door to the side garden featuring citrus and herbs and the Bar-B-Q with permanent gas line attached.

 

The bedroom wing consists of two rooms that share a bathroom and a large master suite.  The first room is currently used as an office and enjoys custom built-ins while the second room has been used for guests.  Both rooms look out onto the garden and then off over trees to the bay beyond.  The spacious master suite has everything you are looking for-  French doors to the garden, a walk-in closet with customized storage, and an elegant bathroom with heated floors and custom stonework. 

 

Adding to the overall appeal of this home is a special cabana off the patio which provides the perfect space for casual entertaining and relaxing.  Beautifully furnished to take advantage of the fireplace, large screen television and game table, this space can be used as a family retreat, a separate office or possibly converted to an in-law.  The home has dual zones for heating and air conditioning and a high-end security system.  There is an attached two car garage, a workroom and incredible storage.  Plus, the home enjoys top public schools K-12 and easy access to shopping, transportation and services.  Truly a very special property.



Neighborhood


Piedmont, a two-square-mile city within the borders of Oakland, was incorporated in 1907 and was known then as “The City of Millionaires” because there were more millionaires per square mile residing there than in any other U.S. city. Today, their large, estate-like homes are still standing in the heart of Piedmont, reminding residents of its glitzy past. Homes in Piedmont range from those estate-like homes in central Piedmont with expansive grounds to more modest homes on the edges of town. Well-manicured landscapes prevail and the city’s stringent permitting guidelines ensure all of the homes maintain their original flavor. The commercial area of town is small, featuring several banks and one gas station. Mulberry’s Market, a specialty food store with ready-made meals, caters to gourmet taste buds and is the frequent morning coffee stop for parents and after-school hot spot for kids. Piedmont’s proximity to Oakland’s many big-city amenities ensures Piedmonters will not miss out on the latest restaurants or first-run movies. The sense of community is strong, as witnessed by the large turnout for the annual Fourth of July parade that happens each year down Highland Avenue. The Piedmont Recreation Center offers a central gathering place for residents. Available for rental, it is the frequent setting for community events and parties. The beautiful grounds provide a wonderful place to hang out and play, and the wooded trail connecting the Center to the high school is the best place to take your dog to play. A casual carpool zone on Oakland Avenue, along with proximity to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District buses, offer workers convenient commute options. Pride in community involvement and village living are just a few of the reasons people love to live in Piedmont.
