The very embodiment of luxurious living, 6921 Paso Robles is a dramatically renovated and updated 4BD/3.5BA, 3750 square foot Modern surrounded by majestic trees in the hills of Montclair. Perched on a rare double lot (with separate parcels), one of the widest in Montclair, the home was designed by renowned local architect Richard Jantzen to take advantage of the stunning hillside setting. The home features soaring ceilings, Bolivian rosewood floors, a sun-drenched open living area with amazing indoor/outdoor flow, and an Ipe deck for entertaining al fresco. Designed for entertaining, the main level includes an expansive living room, spacious dining room, and an exquisite professional-level chef’s kitchen. The upper level features three bedrooms – one a large, elegant owner’s suite with an opulent split bath and a private Ipe deck with an organic container garden lushly planted with fruits and vegetables. The lower level houses a separate studio in-law/au pair suite and a separate wine cellar/tasting room with the feel of an intimate speakeasy. A spacious elevator services three levels, including the attached two-car garage.
The main level is a wide-open modern great room perfect for entertaining and relaxing with friends while turning out a gourmet meal. The exquisite presentation-style chef’s kitchen is anchored by a stunning island with a built-in Capital Culinarian Series 6-burner gas cooktop with grill and custom professional hood. The surrounding 10+ foot waterfall side quartz chef’s counter accommodates seating for six – ideal for chatting with the cook while keeping an eye on food prep and snatching the occasional tidbit. The accomplished home chef will also appreciate the Bosch built-in dual ovens, 60-inch side-by-side professional stainless refrigerator/freezer, stainless Bosch dishwasher, and cabinet microwave. Stylishly remodeled, the open kitchen features expansive quartz countertops, abundant custom cabinets with frosted glass doors, and a stainless farm sink beneath a trio of windows overlooking the lush treetops.
A wall of oversized windows provides a view of the treetops, filling the expansive living room with light, and the open living and dining areas allow guests to mingle freely. A huge Heat&Glo fireplace provides brilliant warmth on cool evenings, and in warmer weather glass French doors open onto a spacious Ipe deck so the party can move outdoors for elegant canapes or a casual barbeque.
Also on this level are a convenient powder room with Madeli floating vanity and modern tile wainscoting as well as a large utility room with dual metro racks which doubles as an additional pantry and dry storage room. The large elevator travels from the two-car garage to the separate breezeway and the in-law unit, on to the main level – an effortless way to ferry groceries up from the garage.
Upstairs, a Bolle Italian Blown Glass chandelier shines down on the expansive landing, anchored by a custom Italian console with lighted shelves and drawers. Grand in scale, the magnificent owner’s suite enjoys soaring ceilings and gleaming rosewood floors, and natural light pours in through oversized windows on three sides. A true retreat, the room is large enough to combine a spacious bedroom with an intimate sitting area, and a glass door opens onto a private sun-washed Ipe deck with an organic container garden of tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, lettuces, zucchini, and Meyer lemons. Behind French doors, the suite includes a large custom walk-in closet with organizers and sunny skylight.
A door of frosted glass opens onto the opulent split bath. The spa-like bath is the height of luxury with a huge walk-in shower with river rock floor, tile bench seating, and dual shower heads as well as a sleek Badloft quartz soaking tub resting beneath tall casement windows. A modern stone-topped dual vanity with vessel sinks provides abundant storage.
On the other side of the home are two additional bedrooms. One is currently configured as an office with corner windows and a large walk-in closet. The second bedroom features a trio of skylights, a distinctive Jason Miller antler chandelier, and a large closet for storage. A skylight illuminates the generous shared bath with a tiled walk-in shower with frameless glass door and dual showerheads, as well as a wide stone-topped vanity with dual vessel sinks.
Also on this level are two large linen closets and a large laundry room with stainless utility sink, front-loading LG washer and dryer, and cabinets for storage.
Below the main level, with convenient elevator access, the studio in-law/au pair suite is a separate living area with a private entrance. The studio includes a sleek kitchenette, walk-in closet, and full bath with shower over tub, vanity with copper countertop and vessel sink, and a new stacking washer and dryer. Also on this level, tucked away to one side of the in-law unit is a whimsical bonus room with a custom bas relief ceiling and elegant chandelier – perfect for an intimate speakeasy or large wine cellar.
The private Forestland Heights neighborhood, tucked away in the hills of Montclair, is a tranquil setting for this stunning home, providing easy access to well-loved East Bay parks, coveted schools, and nearby Montclair Village with its independent shops and restaurants, weekly farmers market, and annual street fairs and jazz festival.
