Nestled in coveted Piedmont Pines, 6117 Ascot is a level-in, stunning 5+BD/4BA, 3709 sq ft custom home built to take full advantage of the spectacular views of the San Francisco bay. Revel in the luxurious aesthetic of this exquisite home featuring gleaming hardwood floors and dramatic vaulted ceilings, formal living and dining rooms, spacious family room, custom chef’s kitchen, opulent owner’s suite with sitting room and spa, and multi-level redwood decks overlooking the bay. Other amenities include professionally landscaped grounds, an in-law/guest suite with private balcony and separate entrance, and a 2-car garage with internal access. The home is perfectly situated near state and regional parks, sought-after schools, and Montclair Village with its eclectic mix of independent shops, cafes, and restaurants.
From the level-in sheltered porch, double front doors open to reveal an expansive entryway with vaulted ceiling and burnished hardwood floors with decorative inlay. A skylight and accompanying custom floor skylight provide natural light to the two main residential levels, and large windows along the western wall provide panoramic views of the bay, three bridges, and the city lights beyond. A spacious redwood deck runs the width of the home – an amazing space for entertaining or for relaxing at the end of the day as the stars light up the evening sky.
Anchored by an elegant marble fireplace, the gracious living room boasts a distinctive angled ceiling, warm hardwood floors, and glass French doors opening onto the deck with its spectacular view. The adjacent formal dining room is also lit by western-facing windows, and glass French doors open onto the deck.
An entertainer’s dream, the expansive chef’s kitchen features dramatic angled ceilings and tall windows, hardwood floors, stone countertops, sophisticated tile backsplash, and burnished mahogany cabinets. The built-in SubZero refrigerator and pantry are a marvelous blend of artistry and utility with a luminous embossed leaf design, and the central stone-topped island is a beautiful space for meal prep and storage. The discerning home chef will also enjoy the Viking 6-burner gas cooktop, Thermador dual wall oven, and Bosch dishwasher.
Adjacent to the kitchen, the inviting family room features a brick fireplace and wine fridge with glass racks above. Flanked by sunny windows, glass French doors open onto the deck, providing easy access for carrying drinks and hors d’oeuvres to guests enjoying the stunning view. Also on this level are a bedroom with angled ceiling and large closet, as well as a full bath with tile shower over tub and tiled vanity.
Downstairs, the huge owner’s suite is an opulent, utterly unique retreat with a spacious sitting area, work-out space and spa with French hot-air jetted tub and a wall of windows overlooking a private deck and the breathtaking bay views beyond the treetops. The adjoining split bath features a sitting area, Brazilian marble-topped dual vanity, and multi-directional shower with travertine floor and Brazilian marble walls and seating. Also on this level are two bedrooms that share a generous bath with shower over tub and dual vanity, as well as a laundry room with energy-efficient washer/dryer and large linen closet.
A built-in staircase leads from the spa down to a wood-paneled room which can be converted to a sauna or wine cellar, and on down to the expansive sun-washed in-law/au pair suite with separate entry. Luminous floor-to-ceiling windows on two walls overlook the bay, and two sets of sliding glass doors open onto a private deck with sweeping views of the bay and city lights beyond. The staircase continues down to a third deck with a magical treehouse aesthetic, surrounded by the tops of the trees below.
The home is ideally situated in a private, tranquil area near Joaquin Miller Park, the 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 amenities and Joaquin Miller Elementary School.
