Tucked away on a private cul-de-sac in Montclair, 6207 Westwood is a sprawling 5BD/4BA Cape Cod-inspired Contemporary enjoying spacious rooms, vaulted ceilings, tall windows, and hardwood floors. The home features a formal dining room, family/media room, expansive chef’s kitchen, three bedrooms on one level – one a luxurious owner’s suite – multiple bonus spaces off the various bedrooms, and a separate guest/au pair suite with private entrance. Outdoor amenities include a wrap-around deck, lush lawn, and bountiful organic vegetable garden with deer fencing. The open floor plan makes this home an entertainer’s dream with French doors off the kitchen/family room that bring the outdoors inside, allowing guests to wander onto a sheltered wrap-around deck. Nestled in the tranquil hills of Montclair, the home is near well-loved East Bay parks, coveted schools, the Hills Swim and Tennis Club (coveted family membership can be included in sale!), and Montclair Village amenities.
A spacious foyer is open to the sunken living room with hardwood floors, high ceilings, and soft recessed lighting. A bank of tall windows fills the room with natural light and a marble fireplace graces one wall. The adjacent formal dining room is large enough to host elaborate holiday dinners or meals with extended family and friends. Tucked behind the dining room is a full bath and a bedroom that might serve as a home office or den. Glass French doors open onto a private railed deck surrounded by trees.
On the other side of the foyer is the heart of the home – an expansive open chef’s kitchen and family room. The kitchen island includes a Viking Professional 6-burner gas cooktop and a breakfast bar perfectly situated for chatting with the cook while keeping an eye on the food prep and snatching the occasional tidbit. The home chef will appreciate the built-in Dacor dual ovens, abundant cabinets, and large pantry closet. The adjoining open family room features a built-in entertainment center and stone fireplace, and a series of glass doors open onto the wrap-around deck overlooking the neighborhood.
Upstairs, a wide landing divides the home into two wings. On one side is the luxurious owner’s suite with vaulted ceilings and tall windows. A true retreat, the suite consists of a spacious bedroom, huge walk-in closet/dressing room, and comfortable sitting room with a floating gas fireplace for chilly evenings. The opulent adjoining split bath features a walk-in shower with frameless glass doors and a Jacuzzi tub with tile surround and windows overlooking the hillside (Fawns included on a lucky day!). A stone-topped dual vanity and separate linen closet provide abundant storage for the bath linens and other necessities of luxurious bathing.
In the other wing of the home, multipane glass French doors open onto a suite of two additional bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and walk-in closets. The two bedrooms are joined by a large, light-filled bonus room that might serve as a study, sitting room, or playroom, and the shared split bath features a shower over tub and wide dual vanity. Also on this level is a laundry room with washer and dryer – conveniently placed to eliminate the need for carrying laundry up and down stairs.
Downstairs from the main level, the guest/au pair suite with private entrance features a living area large enough to be furnished as a combination bed and sitting room as well as a full bath with large walk-in shower and vanity for storage. Also on this level is access to the attached 2-car garage.
Surrounded a variety of trees, including whispering Himalayan birch, the yard is a welcoming spot for hummingbirds, finches, and oak titmice with a lush lawn and deer-proof vegetable garden planted with fig, avocado, and pluot trees, grapevines, tomatoes, peppers, lettuces, corn, cucumbers, and a variety of herbs.
Ideally situated in a private, tranquil neighborhood, 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 eclectic Montclair Village with its independent shops and restaurants, weekly farmers market, and annual street fairs and jazz festival.
