Sold $1,240,000 (List Price: $799,000) - Single Family Home
Situated on a corner lot on a quiet Lincoln Highlands cul-de-sac, 2846 Morgan is an ultra-charming and picturesque 2BD/1BA Art Deco Bungalow – an absolute gem of a home with a gracious balance of period features, lush gardens, and stylish modern updates. The home retains the best of its heritage, with gleaming hardwood floors and gumwood built-ins and trim in the living room and formal dining room, while the sleek modern kitchen, large updated bath, and generous laundry room add stylish convenience. An enchanting wrap-around front garden overflows with flowers and shrubs, and the gated back and side gardens provide peaceful space for al fresco dining and organic gardening. Though nestled in tranquil neighborhood, the home is just moments from bustling Park Boulevard, Dimond Park, Shepherd Canyon Trail, and Montclair Village amenities.
The front garden is an explosion of color with a red Japanese maple tree, African and Cape daisies, blooming lavender, a lemon tree studded with yellow fruit, and a black eyed Susan vine climbing one wall. Inside, a gumwood-trimmed window fills the expansive living room with natural light, and an updated stone fireplace is flanked by gumwood built-in cabinets with leaded glass doors.
Through a wide doorway, the formal dining room is lit by a vintage-style chandelier and a pair of double-hung windows on one wall. A built-in hutch of original gumwood includes drawers and cabinets flanked by display shelves with leaded glass doors. Off the dining room is a short hallway, where two sunny bedrooms share a large bath with basketweave tile floor, tile wainscoting, shower over tub with subway tile walls, and pedestal sink.
Recently updated, the sleek modern kitchen features stone countertops, Heath tile backsplash, and abundant cabinets and drawers. Open corner shelves – perfect for growing herbs or displaying collectibles – flank a wide window overlooking the rear garden. The discerning home chef will appreciate the Bluestone 6-burner gas range with oversized hood.
Off the kitchen, the sun-washed breakfast nook (or possible office?) features modern cabinets for storage and a vintage corner hutch for display. The adjacent laundry room features an Electrolux washer and Miele dryer beneath a stone counter with Heath backsplash and modern cabinets, and a convenient side door provides access to a gated patio and detached garage.
Ideal for entertaining, al fresco dining, or quiet relaxation after a hectic day, the enchanting back garden features a flagstone patio lined with blooming lavender, a redwood pergola with a fragrant canopy of wisteria, orange hot lava abutilon tree, and a variety of flowering bushes and shrubs. A path of stepping stones leads through a gate into the side garden with espalier apple, Mandarin orange, lime and lemon trees, an herb garden, and a large raised bed planted with artichokes and other vegetables.
Ideally situated, the home is near the popular Railroad Trail, Roberts Regional Recreation Area, and Reinhardt Redwood Regional Park with the largest remaining natural stand of coast redwood found in the East Bay, yet just moments from convenient Montclair Village with its independent shops and restaurants, weekly farmers market, annual street fairs and jazz festival.
