This handsome three storied English styled home at 89 Woodland Way in Piedmont, offers a great deal in terms of dramatic appeal, and attention to detail throughout.  With strong Tudor design influences, it features 4 bedrooms, 31/2 bathrooms, in a roomy 3093 + /- sq. feet of space.  

 The welcoming front garden and entryway give a taste of the charm just inside.  The classic diamond shaped windows to the right with the graceful trim above, are matched on the left, and paired with the delightfully pitched twin roofs, are just the start of a very pleasant tour.  

The size of the living room is reminiscent of the English concept of a "Great Room" with its spacious and impressive central fireplace, high wood beamed ceiling, and the warm wooden floors throughout.  

What a delightful place to welcome guests.  Surrounded by windows that encourage views to the outside gardens and greenery, this is a perfect room for a pleasant afternoon tea or party. 

For a bit more formal dining or entertaining, the natural flow of the home's design leads one up just a few short steps to the very inviting dining room.   


This gracious dining room is just awash in light from the dramatic sets of windows which feature strongly in its design concept.  The appealing, and just slightly peaked archway matched with the paneled wooden doors, continue the theme.    

 This sparkling updated kitchen still manages to continue the English design, but adds many attractive assets for the most particular of chefs.  Included here are modern elements that feature a stone counter, gas range/cooktop, spacious oven space, and a well thought out floorplan. 

Also included is practical workspace, and plentiful storage space.  Be sure to note the roomy glass fronted display cabinet which is ideal for your special collection of dining ware or glassware.   

One very popular area with today's busy homeowners is the eat in kitchen area.  Perfect for a quick breakfast or lunch, it is just the right pocket size for those on the move.  

 The upper level of this home offers a San Francisco view, as can be seen through the windows of this pleasant bedroom.  The generous floor space has a little window nook area that allows a garden view as well.  

 Two more bedrooms on the upper level are equally appealing and cheerful.  The window seat in the room directly above adds an extra special touch to the ambiance.  

 The lower level of the home is extremely flexible.  It is currently being used as a recreation room, complete with bar and dining area.  However, combining this space with the bedroom shown below, could transform this level into an excellent location for a nanny, guests, or office. 

 This pleasant space includes both a bedroom a bathroom, and desk/counter.



The rear of the home provides ample opportunities for outdoor relaxation and informal dining.  A very long and spacious deck allows entry into the home at multiple locations.  

It is ideal for enjoying the quiet back yard sounds in wooded surroundings.  Above the stairs is a balcony that affords spacious windows that can be thrown open to bring the outside in.  

 The view, as with everything else in the home, is attractive and engaging.  This home is well located in Piedmont, and just a very short distance from the popular shopping and dining complexes in the Montclair, Grand Lake and Rockridge areas.  It is being offered for sale for $1,995,000.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or interest.  I look forward to assisting you.  I can be reached at (510)517-6280.
