This gracious doorway welcomes you to one of the classically designed homes that makes Piedmont so unique. Located at 104 Monticello, it is built with great attention to detail and quality. Placed on a premium corner lot, it not far from all that makes the area special-whether it is schools, shopping or dining.
Just a few steps past the entry reveals a gracious entryway that leads to warm and welcoming home, and a truly dramatic set of stairs to the upper level.
Just off the entryway, your expectations of exceptional architecture are easily met when you enter the very expansive living room. A special feature to note as you walk through the home is the rich use of handsome wooden trim around windows, doors and entryways, and around the dramatic fireplace mantel.
The width of the living room allows for multiple windows that capture glowing light from outdoors, and add more warmth to an already welcoming atmosphere. Additional appeal is created with the presence of the warm hardwood floors throughout.
There are, in essence, two sitting areas possible here. Note the pleasant views of the garden and greenery. This is an ideal spot for entertaining--perhaps for a luncheon or a informal tea.
As with all homes of this era, there was an expectation of a formal dining room. This room meets all those expectations. Again, note the rich wood trim on doors, ceilings and around windows. The wainscoting and unique window treatment add more charm.
An added asset is the very attractive dining room fireplace with a spacious mantel for displaying special china, glassware or special collectibles.
This cheerful kitchen, with its spacious window view of the garden, has plentiful storage at just about every level. Whether you want to store your china, glassware, or just your everyday cookware, there is a place to accommodate you.
The kitchen has been equipped with stone counters, double oven, electric range, and cooktop,
Nearby, this classic sunporch also reflects the era of the home. A very popular concept when built, and still inviting today, whether for quiet evenings at the end of the day, or for relaxed entertaining either indoors or outside.
This sweeping master bedroom is worth special notice. With a stunning variety of window space, handsome hardwood floors, plentiful storage space, and its own unique fireplace, it is a unique treasure.
A slightly different angle of view reveals yet more of the room, and a private master bathroom,
There are five bedrooms throughout the home. Three are being shown here for your review. The bedroom above continues to show the quality of workmanship with three sizeable windows that are virtually ceiling to floor, and a handsome closet.
This expansive bedroom offers a great deal of flexibility. Roomy and architecturally pleasing, it could be an office, a workroom or study, if needed.
Should you want a great deal of space for a recreation room, arts and crafts, or other use, this roomy attic space could possibly fill your needs.
It's hard to deny the appeal of this delightful patio as a pleasing and calming retreat on a sunny afternoon. However, should you want more backyard space it is certainly available, complete with mature trees and plantings, as seen below.
This engaging home offers 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and is approximately 3061 square feet in size-- however the listing notes on the home state "square footage does not include an extra 1276 square feet of 'other' space".
It is being offered for sale for $2,450,000. If this residence appeals to you, or you would like to inquire about others in the Piedmont area, I welcome your interest. I can be reached at (510)517-6280.
