This lovely home is truly centered around its gardens.  Both in front and back, colorful plants and soothing greenery welcome the homeowners and their guests.  Located in the very heart of Piedmont at 270 Mountain Avenue, it offers 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and a roomy living space of 3016 sf+/- .

The well designed and cheerful white porch, and colorful front door create very inviting entry into this handsome home

As with many homes of its era, this home reflects a number of desirable characteristics that can be seen as soon as you enter the home.  Note the exterior and interior Craftsman styling and influence.  This influence includes a central and spacious fireplace with handsome wood trim, hardwood floors, crown moulding in most rooms, and quality window treatments throughout.


Off to the left in the living room, as shown above, is another popular era classic--a solarium.  It does exactly what it say it will do--allow you to sit in a bright, cheerful room and view your gardens.  A handsome beamed ceiling, and expansive window space is one of the highlights of this room.  Immediately outside is a little patio for an afternoon glass of tea, and further out is your full garden space.

Not far away is another beautifully constructed formal dining room with beautifully decorative white wainscoting and arched insert for a serving center.  

The home's spacious kitchen and breakfast bar are nearby, are ideal for casual dining and entertaining. 


The home has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.  One of the bedrooms has been converted into a very effective and spacious home office.  Below is the dramatic master suite and master bathroom.

The master bathroom includes a shower over tub, a skylight, and a sunken tub with jets.

Here, another bedroom with classical bathroom immediately adjacent

As mentioned above, one of the four bathrooms has been utilized as an office, and, if you don't need a fourth bedroom, this room has undergone a truly amazing conversion.  Notice all the counter space, bookshelves, and built in storage space that is ideal for any home office.  

Stepping outside of the home is a real pleasure.  A delightful garden awaits, whether in the back of the home or with its well constructed front yard seating.  

This home has a lot to enjoy.  There are so many elements that have come together to make it a very special home, right down to this white picket style fence.

The home is being offered for sale for $2,100,000.  Please call me with your interests and questions at (510) 517-6280.  I look forward to working with you.
