In the heart of the coveted Elmwood, steps from UC Berkeley, 2607 Piedmont is a 4+BD/3BA, 2614 sq ft* Colonial Revival, gorgeously remodeled to retain the architectural beauty of the era, blending the vintage details with stylish modern upgrades. High ceilings, large windows, and gleaming hardwood floors accentuate the elegance of the spacious rooms, and period built-ins reflect the home’s distinguished history. Features include a formal dining room with built-in hutch and an amazing chef’s kitchen with a sunny sitting area at one end and charming breakfast room at the other - both with access to the sprawling, verdant rear yard where a redwood deck and deep lawn provide an excellent space for outdoor entertaining (don’t miss the enticing children’s play structure tucked into a corner among the trees). Upstairs, the sun-washed primary suite is an expansive retreat with a light-filled office/sitting area and a luxurious bath with large walk-in shower with Walter Zanger tile and a wide stone vanity with dual sinks. Three additional bedrooms - all with large closets - share a generous split bath with walk-in shower and vintage-style soaking tub. On the lowest level, the large finished basement might serve as a family/rec room, and the private entrance suggests the possibility of an in-law/au pair suite. Additional amenities include a laundry room with storage, a long driveway (with potential charging outlet), and large storage area for bikes, luggage, tools, and sports equipment.
Centrally located in the vibrant Elmwood neighborhood with its walkability score of 98(!), the home is mere moments from the historic Elmwood shopping district - a retro-chic area known for its independent shops, restaurants, cafes, parks, public pools, cinema and many wonderful recreational, after school and arts programs. With easy access to public transportation, the home is also close to the UC Berkeley campus, Claremont Hotel and Country Club, Rockridge BART and miles of hiking trails in Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve and Tilden Regional Park.
