This delightful home is both attractive and welcoming. With its well thought out floor plan, and calming ambiance, it would be a pleasure to own. Located in the heart of Piedmont at 227 El Cerrito Avenue, it is close to everything within Piedmont, and just moments from the restaurants and shops of Montclair Village and nearby Rockridge. It offers 2 bedrooms and 2 baths in a comfortable 1520 sf +/- of living space.
Approaching the front door, it is obvious that this home was built around, and designed to create, a well planned interaction between the outdoor gardens and the indoor living space. The home features extensive window space at every turn, and multiple French doors that open to the exterior.
It is hard to deny the style of this exceedingly spacious living room. Anchored by a handsomely designed brick fireplace that features an imaginative design of both the mantel and surround, the room itself features a unique ceiling treatment, and full room wainscoting. A extra added value is the access to the yard through a pair of matching glass paned doors.
A slightly different perspective of the living room completes the picture of this flexible living space.
Just steps away from the living room, and located towards the front of the home, is this delightful dining room that is easily seen in the opening shot above. It is almost vacation like in its appeal, with its wide glass doors opening up to the pleasing front gardens.
An alternate view of the dining room reveals the space that this room has to offer. A larger table could easily be accommodated, and would be perfect for a full dinner party or buffet luncheon. Guests could move freely from inside to outside with ease.
Just off the dining room is this cozy bonus space which, while suited as an office nook, could offer other options as needed.
Adjacent to the office nook and dining room, as seen in the picture above, is this very handsome kitchen. A very helpful pass through space to the dining area is available just above the stone counter work space.
The warmly colored wooden floors and cabinets create an inviting atmosphere to this upgraded kitchen. Be sure to note the gas range/cooktop, and gleaming refrigerator and dishwasher.
The house has two very spacious bedrooms. The largest, above, features impressive closet space and comfortable room for additional furniture--perhaps a desk, bureau, or upholstered side chairs.
The second bedroom has made good use of its space, and the pair of windows add more soft light to the already pleasant ambiance.
There are two bathrooms in the home. One is being shown here for your consideration. It has been updated, and features a handsome stall shower and cheerful skylight.
Moving to the rear of the home, one discovers this spacious wooden deck surrounded by sheltering trees-a perfect spot for entertaining friends, or just relaxing quietly with a morning cup of coffee.
Yet another cozy spot for a pleasant retreat is just steps away in the yard. This gracious home is well located and well designed, and is being offered for sale for $1,395,000. If it, or another similar home has caught your attention, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280 with your questions and interest.
