This stunning Piedmont home located at 44 Sandringham Road, offers irresistible curb appeal with its spacious front gardens, and impressive Miller Warnecke architecture.  Ideally located  close to many local shopping and dining venues, it features 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a very spacious 3838 +/-sf of living space.  

 Guest are immediately welcomed with this dramatic front entry that features a wrought iron and glass door located between two handsome pillars, and set immediately below a curved and windowed balcony area. 

As guests enter the home, they are greeted by a truly impressive front balcony, seen above, that is paired with upper level windows that circle the entire upper entryway.

A gentle turn to the right reveals the living room. With its three arched windows directly ahead, and its spacious windows to the left, the room is aglow with light from every angle.  

This charming living room is built around a commanding and spacious central fireplace, that is an ideal focal point around which to create a pleasant spot for entertaining.  It can be equally purposeful as a warm and relaxing source of warmth on a chilly evening.  Adding yet more desirability, is the impressive exposed beam ceiling that creates a dramatic presence to an already captivating room.  

A reverse view of the living room reveals the entry steps down into the room, and beyond, the graceful wrought iron railing stairway to the second floor.  To the immediate right is the entrance to the formal dining room.

Just steps away from the living room is this classical formal dining room.  A home of this era was expected to have a gracious dining area, and this does not disappoint.  Note the warm wooden hardwood floors located here, and throughout much of the other rooms of the home.  It is spacious enough to include a large table, multiple seating, and yet still have room for a serving side table under the window.

A reverse view reveals a delightful plus to the already inviting dining area.  Just off to the right are a pair of doors that open out onto the back yard patio area.  On pleasant days, these doors can be left open to enjoy the warmth and charm of the garden.  Additionally, this floor plan is ideal when the dining table is set up in a buffet format, and food can be easily transported outside.

This little patio area is just a portion of the back yard, but provides an excellent dining spot for a casual meal or luncheon.  

 Just off the dining room is a kitchen that would be expected in a home of this quality.  It continues the warm wood theme that is seen throughout the home, and offers an amazing amount of work and storage space.  Note the central island workspace that is enhanced with additional workspace under virtually every overhead cabinet.  Additionally, there is storage below each of these spots for favorite cooking and serving pieces. Also note the electric range/cooktop, and built in oven.

This home, as can be seen from earlier views, is built around entertaining.  Just off the kitchen, these spacious doors allow easy movement for guests and cook from the indoors to the outside gardens, and features garden views through spacious glass doors, no matter what time of day or weather.  

Just off the kitchen is this delightful breakfast/lunch nook with a view to the back patio.  Bright and cheerful, it is accompanied with cabinet and serving counter.  


 It is hard to deny the appeal of this cozy dining spot that allows a wide angle view of the entire back yard, and the colorful backyard fountain.

 A cozy retreat area, complete with brick, gas burning fireplace, is this wood panelled den that invites quiet study or reading activities. 

There are five bedrooms in the home.  Three are being shown for your consideration.  The first, above, is the master bedroom, that offers space, plentiful window light, and delightful special touches throughout the room. Examples include warmly colored wooden flooring, imaginative crown moulding and ceiling treatment, and a wall of storage and closet space.  Be sure to observe the window treatment with its clever space designed for whatever appeals--be it books, collectibles, or art.  

Immediately adjacent to the master bedroom is this master bathroom featuring a tile step up tub with jets, shower, and a roomy double sinks with plentiful storage underneath.

This very generously sized second bedroom is extremely flexible as to floorplan, has a pleasantly arched ceiling, wooden floors and a charming built in display cabinet.  

A third bedroom incorporates multiple windows, handsome window and ceiling treatment, and, could be considered for use as an office, workroom, or arts and craft room with its generous light.  Since there are five bedrooms in the home, if all five are not needed, one could be adapted to an alternate use.  

Also featured is this inviting family room that has so many potential uses for relaxation and entertaining.  As with the living room, it is built around a central fireplace, and has wooden wainscoting around the room to add to the charm. 

If you would like to enjoy this home, and relax in this delightfully expansive backyard, I encourage you to call me promptly for a viewing.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280. This residence is being offered for sale for $2.985,000.  I look forward to hearing from you.
