No matter which angle you view this classically designed home from, it is very impressive. This spacious 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home is centrally located at 5 Blair Avenue in Piedmont, and just steps from beautiful Dracena Park.  The shops and restaurants of Grand and Piedmont Avenue are not far away, as are the popular Rockridge shopping venues on College Avenue. 

This truly gracious entryway reflects the atmosphere throughout the rest of the home. From hardwood floors, stunning wood trim and moulding, and delightful window treatments, you feel welcome from the moment you open the door. 

An immediate turn to the left introduces you to the spacious living room. So many things catch the eye that represent quality of construction and design.  Note the beamed ceilings, the wide, spacious windows, and, additionally, the beautiful hardwood floors and wood trim throughout.


The living room also retains the charm of an earlier era when built in cabinets and display bookcases surrounded a spacious fireplace.   Be sure to notice the unique floor design.

There are two rooms set aside for entertaining and dining--one formal, one casual. The first is the dramatic dining room that represents the home's traditional roots. 

More casual, but still equally appealing, is the family room.  It has doors that open to a private patio and wrap around garden.  It would be ideal for a quiet afternoon luncheon or tea party.  

But, whether you choose a casual or formal meal, you have a truly pleasing updated kitchen to work from.  It has a commercial stove, granite, and stainless appliances to assist you.  

The home has 4 bedrooms, two of which are shown here for your consideration.  The first, shown below, has wide and spacious windows, as does the adjoining office space also shown. 

Another of the four bedrooms is equally handsome with a view to the greenery outside.

One of the two and 1/2 bathrooms is truly appealing, and is presented for your consideration, as well.

In addition to the four bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths mentioned above, there is also a very attractive in-law unit on the lower level.  Regarding this, the agent has said "Approved City of Piedmont plans for lower 5th bedroom and 3rd bathroom, or legal rental unit"

Earlier, it was noted that the family room opens onto the wrap around patio.  Here is the patio, and adjoining garden.

The home is approximately 3105 sf in size, and this handsome home is offered for sale for $2,495,000.  I look forward to hearing from you at (510) 517-6280 about your interest.
