Perched on a rare level lot at the end of a cul-de-sac on the Piedmont side of Montclair, 58 Lane Court is a magnificent 3+BD/2BA, 2905 square foot Italianate Traditional with open floor plan, spacious rooms, and stunning Bay views. Set back and above the street, the front yard is bordered by a privacy hedge, and a flagstone walk leads to the double front doors. Perfect for entertaining, the home includes a formal dining room, updated cook’s kitchen with breakfast nook, and an expansive front deck and brick patio. Mostly single-level, the home features a luxurious primary suite with a huge walk-in closet and opulent bath, and two additional bedrooms with a shared bath. Downstairs, a bonus room runs nearly the width of the home and might be suitable for a rec room, home theater, or family room. Additional amenities include a security room hidden behind a bookshelf downstairs, a large laundry room with washer and dryer, and an oversized two-car garage. Ideally located, the home is moments from the best of the East Bay with close proximity to Rockridge, Grand Lake, and Montclair Village with its eclectic mix of independent shops and restaurants, weekly farmers market, and annual street fairs and jazz festival.
Wide steps flanked by Tuscan columns lead to double doors that reveal an open entryway and gracious living room with vaulted ceiling, gleaming hardwood floors, and a stone fireplace between tall windows shaded by majestic oak trees. An oversized picture window runs the width of the room providing a panoramic view of the Bay Bridge and the SF city lights beyond.
Up two steps is a landing at the base of an ingenious circular floor plan. Framed by arched doorways, the spacious formal dining room is large enough to accommodate friends and extended family, and the adjacent kitchen area is perfectly designed for entertaining. The recently refreshed cook’s kitchen features stone countertops and breakfast bar, gas cooktop, and dual built-in ovens and extends to a sunny breakfast nook or sitting area with a corner fireplace. Sliding glass doors open onto the pergola-covered front deck where guests can enjoy a summer brunch or relax with evening hors d'oeuvres and drinks while taking in the amazing bay view.
On the eastern side of the home, the expansive primary suite enjoys large windows and skylights that fill the room with natural light. Glass French doors open onto a private flagstone patio - a perfect spot for morning coffee or evening stargazing. The adjoining split bath is a luxurious open space with a skylight set into the vaulted ceiling, an open walk-in shower with glass brick wall, a jetted tub with a series of windows overlooking the patio, and a stone-topped vanity with dual sinks. Conveniently placed adjoining the bath, a huge walk-in closet is large enough to serve as a dressing room or sitting area.
The adjacent bedroom has a treehouse feel with a trio of windows shaded by majestic oak trees, and a third bedroom is large enough to be furnished as a combination bed and sitting area, or even used as a family or rec room. The two bedrooms share a modern bath with shower over tub and luminous skylight. Also on this level is a large laundry room with a washer and dryer, as well as a utility sink.
Downstairs, a bonus room runs the width of the home and might serve as a game room, home theater, or living area. The room includes built-in bookshelves that swing open to reveal a secure room that might become a playroom or large walk-in closet, and glass French doors open to the street near the two-car garage.
