Brick stairs lead to the beautifully carved front door adorned with an oval of leaded glass. From the spacious entryway, the light-filled living room beckons with burnished hardwood floors and multi-paned windows overlooking hills and bay. On one wall, a stunning stacked stone gas fireplace is flanked by distinctive sconces and oversized windows.
Multi-paned windows fill the formal dining room with light, offering a lovely view of the bay and SF city lights beyond. A modern built-in hutch provides cabinets for storage and drawers for table linens while mirrored glass shelves above showcase your favorite serving pieces or collectibles.
The exquisite chef’s kitchen has been stylishly updated in the French Country style with stone countertops, travertine backsplash with embossed metal decorative accents, and custom paneled appliances. The discerning home chef will appreciate the Dacor 6-burner gas cooktop w/griddle, built-in Dacor double oven, and Sub-Zero refrigerator. At one end of the kitchen are a paneled Miele Touchtronic washer and dryer and a windowed door for driveway and backyard access.
The spacious owner’s suite is a beautiful, light-filled retreat lit by windows on two sides and a view of the lush backyard. Running the full width of the back of the home, this room is large enough to be furnished as a combination bed and sitting area, and a lighted, custom built-in closet system provides abundant storage.
The adjoining bath features a heated floor, stone dual vanity with ample storage and dual vessel sinks beneath a trio of lovely sconces. Behind a glass door, the spa-like walk-in shower boasts distinctive modern tile, vertical drain, and a luxurious rain showerhead as well as a handheld showerhead and wall jets.
The two remaining bedrooms are large and sunny, one with a wood-framed bay window seat and a built-in study nook with shelves, the other with a huge closet and a remote-controlled modern ceiling fan.
A decorative etched glass window casts filtered light on the generous shared bath. An arresting stacked stone wall encloses a rain showerhead poised over a raised jetted tub. A vanity of striated wood with stone top and vessel sink provides storage, and lovely frosted glass shelves add an elegant touch.
A bonus space with a separate entrance beneath the living room has been remodeled with oak floors and soft recessed lighting. This quiet space enjoys natural light from windows on two sides and is well suited for an office, yoga studio, or workroom.
Through a wrought iron gate and arbor, the lush backyard is ideally situated for entertaining with a spacious brick patio surrounded by mature trees, bright hydrangeas, elegant roses, and fragrant camellias. Lighted stepping stones lead to a charming fountain.
A well-lit paved driveway provides tandem parking and level-in access to the kitchen entrance for ease of unloading groceries, ending at the detached 2-car garage.
All of this is situated in the coveted Montclair neighborhood, near some of the most beautiful hiking trails in the East Bay and moments from Montclair Village with its small-town pedestrian-friendly vibe, independent retailers and restaurants, and storybook-style public library.
