Perched in the Montclair hills, gated and set back from the street, with dramatic bay views, 6655 Oakwood is a stunning 3BD/3BA, 2168 sq ft example of the best of Mid-Century Modern architecture. With a sweeping, open-air aesthetic created by vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, an open floor plan, and tall windows that flood the rooms with natural light, the home is a private, vacation-like retreat from the everyday world. Thoroughly renovated for modern convenience and designed to take full advantage of the gorgeous SF city and 2-bridge views, the home enjoys multi-level decks and views in nearly every room. The main level includes a living room and formal dining room that share a spacious covered deck, an expansive kitchen and breakfast area with skylights, a light-filled primary suite with stunning views, an additional bedroom with adjacent bath, and a convenient laundry area. Designed for maximum flexibility, the lower level has a separate entrance, making it ideal for a guest/in-law suite with its own private deck or a family/game room with additional bedroom and bath.

At the front of the home, a gated and lushly landscaped courtyard and side deck offer quiet spaces for entertaining or relaxing and 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.

Shaded by a huge boxwood tree, the professionally designed and landscaped front courtyard is a private oasis of plants native to California including Meyer lemon and orange trees and fragrant flowering shrubs. Built-in bench seating and a side deck overlooking the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges are perfectly suited to evening contemplation of the glorious sunsets and cityscapes of the East Bay.

The entryway of the home is open to the gracious living room with gleaming oak floors beneath a timber ceiling with exposed beams. A series of tall windows overlook the front garden on one side, and sliding glass doors on the other create a beautiful indoor-outdoor flow. Walk through those doors to a spacious deck nestled between the living room and dining room. Use the glass doors in the dining room to carry out drinks and hors d’oeuvres for an evening of stargazing while enjoying the vista of treetops, Oakland, San Francisco, and the bay beyond. Across the hall, operable skylights cast a glow over the expansive kitchen and casual dining area, and another sliding glass door opens onto the front courtyard and side deck.

The renovated and expanded primary suite is a true retreat with a vaulted ceiling and a series of large windows that would be a perfect place for a window seat or overstuffed chair for gazing out over the bay. Two custom closets with California closet organizers provide abundant storage. Open the pocket door to the adjoining bath and watch the custom-designed tile glow in the natural light pouring in through clerestory windows, and feel the luxurious radiant heat as it warms the floors on chilly mornings. A wide custom vanity of warm wood and a stone top with dual sinks provides ample storage.

Also on this level are a second bedroom with a California closet overlooking the front courtyard and a full bath with custom vanity, shower over tub, and matching decorative tile floor and surround. A convenient laundry area is located in the hall behind a custom barn door.

Downstairs, an expansive family room is large enough for multiple seating areas and a ping-pong or billiards table, and a private deck offers a stunning view of the bay. The family room is flanked by a third bedroom and full bath with shower over tub. The separate entrance might suggest configuring this level as guest or au pair quarters or a spacious in-law suite.

Near excellent Montclair schools, the home is moments from Montclair Village with its Sunday Farmer’s Market, annual street fairs and jazz festival, and neighborhood favorites like the Montclair Egg Shop and The Yellow Door. A quick walk, drive or bike ride brings you to the Redwood Regional Park system with miles of hiking and biking trails.

Additional Highlights:
Custom solid wood doors throughout
Detached two-car garage
Expansive level back yard
Drip irrigation system in the front garden
