Situated on a large, gorgeously landscaped corner lot in the Skyline-Hillcrest Estates, 13050 Brookpark Road is a stylish 4BD/3.BA 2390 sq ft Mid-Century Modern meticulously maintained by the original owners, sporting many chic, vintage features of the period. An open floor plan, burnished hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, and walls of glass overlooking the lush backyard create a tranquil indoor-outdoor flow. The home also features an eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, expansive family room, downstairs guest/au pair suite, and attached 2-car garage with internal access. A large deck overlooks the beautifully landscaped backyard, including a level lawn area and two patios that make this an ideal area for outdoor entertaining. Convenient to Lincoln Square for everyday shopping, the home is also moments from Montclair Village with locally-owned shops and cafes.
Behind a lush lawn adorned by honeysuckle and rosemary, a hedge-lined walkway shaded by a majestic Japanese maple leads to double front doors. The tile entryway is open to the spacious, light-filled living room featuring gleaming hardwood floors, a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, and a wall of windows overlooking the beautifully landscaped backyard shaded by a blooming Japanese Dogwood tree. On the opposite wall, a fireplace with brick surround and sitting-height brick hearth typical of the period provides warmth on a chilly winter evening.
Through a wide doorway, the formal dining room is lit by large windows overlooking the backyard, and built-in cabinets provide storage for table linens and serving pieces. A sliding glass door opens onto a railed deck running nearly the width of the home, a lovely spot for morning coffee or evening contemplation of the stars.
The adjacent eat-in kitchen provides a perfect work triangle, with electric cooktop, dual built-in ovens, a pantry as well as ample cabinets and drawers, and sunny corner windows over the sink. At one end of the kitchen is a dining nook with sliding glass doors conveniently placed for carrying drinks and hors d’oeuvres out to the covered side patio. Off the kitchen is a laundry room with a door to the patio and another to the attached garage.
On the other side of the home, the bedrooms can be closed off from the living area for privacy. At the end of the hall, the spacious owner’s suite overlooks the backyard and features a huge double closet flanking built-in cabinets for storage. Natural light streams into the adjoining bath with step-in tile shower and 60s-style Satin-Glide vanity.
The remaining two generous bedrooms on this level enjoy large closets and windows overlooking the street. The shared connecting bath boasts cheerful rosebud wallpaper, yellow tile shower over tub, convenient linen closet, a 60s style Satin-Glide vanity, and a casement window of vintage bottle glass.
Down the staircase is an expansive, light-filled family room with sliding glass doors onto a charming flagstone patio. A built-in wet bar behind folding doors is perfectly placed for preparing drinks to take outside on a summer afternoon. Also on this level is a guest/au pair suite with a large bedroom and full bath with shower over tub and vanity with ample storage.
The sun-washed backyard has been beautifully landscaped with mature trees and a profusion of flowering shrubs, fortnight lilies, camellias, and hydrangeas. From the flagstone patio, wide stone steps lead to a lush lawn, and a gravel pathway continues up to the back deck and kitchen patio.
Ideally situated for outdoor activity, the home is near the Woodminster Amphitheater, Leona Heights Park hiking trails, and the Reinhardt Redwood Regional Park, home of the largest remaining natural stand of coast redwood found in the East Bay. For horse aficionados, there are many stables in the area and a trail on Skyline Boulevard.
