Rooms with a view!
This 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.
The lower level has lots of living space - 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.
The 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.
Upstairs, 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; 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 view window framing a lovely view of the camellia and oak trees outside.
Tucked 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 cafs, shops and restaurants of Montclair Village. Nearby is the trailhead that accesses the 2,500 acres of Joaquin Miller Park, Roberts Regional 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.
Classic modern elegance, dramatic views and spectacular sunsets - this bright, elegant home is the perfect refuge for friends and family.
