Perched on a corner lot overlooking the bay, 20 Crestmont is an exquisite, light-filled 3+BD/3BA, 2076 sq ft Mid-Century Modern with a full-service studio in-law/au pair suite with separate entrance. The home features a wide-open floor plan, an updated eat-in kitchen with breakfast nook, formal dining room, spacious owner’s suite and two additional bedrooms on one level, and recently remodeled baths. A magnificent sunroom with floor-to-ceiling windows provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay, all three bridges, Treasure Island, and the city lights of San Francisco.
The home offers a rare combination of hilltop views and an enclosed level back yard for a children’s play area, urban garden, or neighborhood barbecues. Perfectly situated in the Crestmont neighborhood near miles of hiking and biking trails in Redwood Regional Park, Joaquin Miller Park, and the Skyline Ranch Equestrian Center, the home is also near Montclair Village with its locally-owned shops and restaurants, weekly farmers market, and community events.
The shaded front porch catches the morning light, a lovely spot for morning coffee. Inside, the spacious entryway opens onto the wide-open common area where the abundant sunshine casts a warm glow on the burnished hardwood floors. The living room features a window overlooking the bay and the formal dining room boasts tall windows on one side. At the back of the home, floor-to-ceiling windows fill the magnificent sunroom with natural light and provide sweeping panoramic views of the bay, the Golden Gate, Bay, and San Mateo bridges, Treasure Island, and San Francisco city lights.
The updated eat-in kitchen features stone countertops, an electric cooktop with chevron-patterned tile backsplash, a wall oven, and ample cabinets for storage. At one end, the sunny dining area is lit by large windows on two sides – an ideal spot for a chat over morning coffee, or quick family meals.
On the other side of the home, a central hallway leads to three bedrooms on one level. The lovely owner’s suite is lit by large windows with unobstructed bay and bridge views. Two large closets provide ample storage, and the adjoining bath features a walk-in shower of decorative tile and a pedestal sink.
The remaining two bedrooms include generous windows and large closets, and both enjoy bay and bridge views. They share a full bath with tile floor, shower over tub, and stone-topped vanity for storage.
On the lower level, a full-service in-law/au pair suite is a true retreat with a private entrance and sliding glass doors out to the expansive back patio. Oversized windows in the spacious living area provide breathtaking bay views, and a vintage brick fireplace adds warmth in the winter months. The studio also features a full kitchen with stone countertops, electric range and microwave, and the full bath boasts a walk-in shower with decorative tile walls and stone-topped vanity for storage. In addition, a walk-in closet offers room for storage as well as a laundry area with a stacked washer/dryer unit.
In addition to its many aesthetic charms, 20 Crestmont Drive offers a convenient 2-car attached garage with laundry hookups and an expansive enclosed back yard. Just minutes from Highway 13, Redwood Regional Park, Joaquin Miller Park, Roberts Regional Recreation Area, and Chabot Space and Science Center, this wonderful home puts you in close proximity to many of the East Bay’s best-loved outdoor spaces.
