On a huge lot in the Fernwood area of Oakland, steps from Montclair Village, 1419 Mountain is an architecturally rich, lovingly maintained, and beautifully remodeled 4+BD/2.5BA European-inspired property surrounded by verdant grounds with multiple patios and seating areas, burbling fountains, and an enchanting guest house/creative studio. Inside, the home features hardwood floors, light-filled rooms, a gracious archway motif, and period built-ins. Original features, including light fixtures, door handles and drawer pulls, and a telephone cubby lend a delightful sense of character and style. Upstairs are three bedrooms – one a primary bedroom with walk-in closet and private balcony – a large remodeled bath with decorative tile, and a whimsical play space with built-in drawers and a platform bed. The lower level includes a guest room and adjacent sitting room with access to the amazing rear garden, and additional unfinished basement space is ripe for further development. An entertainer’s paradise, the home includes a stylishly remodeled chef’s kitchen, private front courtyard for afternoon get-togethers, a formal dining room, and a basement wine storage area. Off the kitchen is a large rear deck and expansive multi-level rear garden bursting with colorful roses and fragrant wisteria – perfect for alfresco events. Surrounded by lush plantings, a magical detached cottage includes a Scandinavian-style built-in bed and a powder room plumbed to become a full bath, making it an excellent guest suite, creative studio, home office or candidate for a future ADU. (Please verify requirements with City of Oakland.) Near excellent Montclair schools, the home is moments from Shepherd Canyon Park and the historic Montclair railroad walking trail leading to Montclair Village shopping and restaurants.
