With stunning Golden Gate and Bay Bridge views, a rare opportunity awaits for owner occupants and investors to own three fully upgraded homes on a beautifully wooded +/- .46 acres. The verdant compound is up a private drive in the Piedmont side of Montclair where you’ll find: a single-level 3BR/3BA primary residence that’s a masterpiece of contemporary design and easy living, a newly constructed full-service ADU with two sleeping areas plus all the necessities for a turn-key short-term rental unit or tenants (past Airbnb rental info available), and a 2BR/1BA quaint clapboard cottage ready for renters, an au pair, or in-laws. A large English garden connects the separate properties, imbuing the property with a boho chic retreat sensibility.

Through a vine covered trellis and gate, enter onto a spacious patio welcoming you to the modern primary residence. Multiple glass doors lead you into a home perfectly designed for indoor/outdoor living. From the foyer, you immediately see the home’s epic Bay views from the wall of windows that light up the gracious great room. The living area has a centerpiece fireplace with a refined wood mantle, a television hidden behind artwork, and recessed lighting and sconces that further brighten the sunny room. The attached dining area has built-in glass cabinets and a sliding glass door onto the home’s huge wrap-around deck with the San Francisco skyline and both the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges as your backdrop. A gas fire pit is ready for entertaining, and plenty of additional room for dining or play. Back inside, refinished wooden floors span the home into the sun-splashed chef’s kitchen. With a skylight, custom cabinetry, seated island, and top-notch appliances, the kitchen is a cook’s dream with an attached sitting room to enjoy your family and friends. The family room has matching cabinets as the kitchen and two sets of French doors opening the room up to the outdoors – both the front patio and the deck. The bedroom wing has two chic bathrooms and two nice-sized bedrooms with built-in bookcases and roomy closets. Down a hallway, a large custom closet offers plenty of storage. The primary suite is not to be missed with its exquisite split ensuite bath with Heath tiling, the giant custom closets, built-in storage, and sliding glass door onto the deck.

Back outside, it’s only a short walk through the lush garden up to the cottage which is close enough to be neighborly, but far enough away for privacy. The cottage has a sweet porch and mullioned front door which welcomes you to the living room with its beamed and paneled ceiling. A large picture window and casement windows provide a Bay and tree lined view, while a fireplace with flanking bookcases make the room cozy. The nearby eat-in kitchen is sunny with garden views and new appliances, and down a hallway, you’ll find an updated bath and bedroom. Up a flight of stairs, a flexible attic allows for plenty of storage, a work from home area, and another bedroom.

The large ADU sits at the base of the property. Designed with an eye to accommodate every need, the first floor has an eat-in kitchen, laundry, sitting area, and a murphy bed which doubles as a desk. Another sleeping area is in a loft. Currently used as a short-term rental unit, the ADU is being sold turnkey.

A long driveway allows for multiple parking places and additional land may allow for further development possibilities, including a garage at the street with potential fourth unit above (per Sellers - Buyer(s) to verify to their satisfaction). This is a gem of a property ready as a primary home, space for extended family or for extra income. With top schools, lively Montclair Village, Central Piedmont, and an easy commute on Highway 13 all nearby, this is both a family home and an investment for the future.
