Nestled on a premium double lot in the hills of the Piedmont Pines neighborhood, with dramatic bay views and open floor plan, 6367 Ascot Drive is a level-in 4BD/3BA Mid-Century Modern with 3 BD/2BAs on one level and a downstairs full-service 1BD/1BA guest apartment. The home enjoys a Pacific Northwest aesthetic with vaulted wood ceilings and exposed beams, hardwood floors, and an open common area designed to take full advantage of the gorgeous sweeping SF city and 3-bridge views. Additional features include an updated kitchen with breakfast nook, dining room, stylish baths, and a light-filled owner’s suite with stunning views. An expansive deck and private front courtyard offer quiet space for relaxing soaking in the surrounding natural beauty. 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.
At the front of the home, miniature nordic pines, barberry bushes, and abundant plantings of fragrant rosemary and lavender create the feeling of a level-in, private retreat. Star jasmine adorns a romantic arbor leading to an expansive courtyard oasis shaded by a majestic Japanese maple.
The entryway is open to the gracious living room where a vaulted wood ceiling with exposed beams and wide picture windows overlook the treetops and the bay beyond. A wood-burning brick fireplace with exposed chimney adds a rustic touch to the clean lines typical of the mid-century era. Glass doors in the adjacent dining room open onto a wide deck, convenient for carrying drinks and hors d’oeuvres out for an evening of stargazing.
Lit by a sunny window, the stylishly updated galley kitchen boasts stone countertops with subway tile backsplash and ample cabinets, including a large pantry. The discerning home chef will appreciate the glass cooktop with downdraft fan, dual ovens, and Bosch dishwasher. The kitchen is open to a charming breakfast nook with a vaulted ceiling, distinctive pendant lights, and vintage diamond pane windows looking out over the private courtyard.
With stunning bay views and a glass door to the back deck, the owner’s suite is a tranquil retreat. The adjoining bath features a step-in shower, pedestal sink beneath an oversized mirror, and vintage-style tile walls. A large cabinet with shelves and drawers provides ample space for storage.
Two additional bedrooms feature expansive windows and large closets and share a generous bath with shower over tub and vintage tile vanity.
Downstairs, the finished basement houses a full-service 1BD/1BA apartment, perfect for an au pair, guests, extended family, or at-home business. The living room enjoys wide casement windows overlooking the bay, and a brick fireplace offers warmth on winter nights. Behind a half wall, a full kitchen includes expansive tile countertops, dual sinks, refrigerator, and charming vintage range.
The sunny bedroom boasts soft recessed lighting, gleaming hardwood floors, and large dual closets, as well as under stair storage with shelves. The generous bath features a freestanding vanity and walk-in shower with rain showerhead.
Also on this level is unfinished basement space with a washer and dryer, abundant storage opportunities, and access to the side yard.
All of this 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.
