This beautifully conceived Piedmont home is located at 1501 Grand Avenue, and offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in a generous 1727 sf of living space.  

Its curb appeal is undeniable.  Lush grass and mini gardens are located on either side of a broad walkway that leads to a stunning portico that is dramatically enhanced by a pair of handsome Greek columns, and a sheltered entryway.

A sweeping pair of bow windows on either side of the home captures the exterior views for both the living room and dining room, and directly above are matching view balconies for the bedrooms.  

Guests are welcomed into this softly colored living room that is truly aglow with light streaming in from the four bow windows, and the floor to ceiling window to the right.   

This excellent floorplan encourages the effective placement of a long sofa, and two inviting soft side chairs that will increase the pleasant time spent with friends while entertaining.  

A slightly different aspect reveals a  large, congenial fireplace that is especially welcoming during cooler Bay area days and evenings.  An overhead mantle invites placement of favorite collectibles or plants.  

This view is particularly effective in calling attention to the quality of the home's construction both here, and throughout the home. 

 Dual crown molding is seen above, wainscoting is seen below, and each archway and door features trim above, and on either side, of their entry.   

A reverse perspective reveals a tall built in bookcase that is an excellent asset to the room.  Its many shelves are ideal for displays of book collections, special collectibles, and favorite artwork.  Drawers below offer storage as needed.  

Just to the right of the home's entryway is this inviting dining room and kitchen combination.  An engaging overhead chandelier lights the dining area which easily holds six chairs and a wide table.  

Its proximity to the kitchen encourages easy conversation and engagement with the chef while food is being prepared and served.  

This gleaming updated kitchen is well planned to offer a multitude of uses and amenities.  A central breakfast bar serves multiple purposes-it can be the site of a simple breakfast, a serving counter and/or cocktail bar when entertaining, as well as a preparation space for meals.  

A reverse view reveals the large bow windows that capture the exterior light for the dining room, the dining space, and the kitchen itself.  This space has been impressively updated to include a dishwasher, free standing gas range, and a refrigerator.  

Also impeccably upgraded is this gleaming main floor bathroom with a crisp white ambiance, generous shelving, and an enclosed glass shower.  

There is a bonus plus room in the home on the second floor which is currently being effectively used as an office space with a built in bookcase and desk.  

A reverse view of the office reveals a huge view window and French doors that open to the rear garden.  

In addition to the office above, there are also three bedrooms on the second floor.  The first, seen here, is the primary bedroom that is wrapped with dual sets of large picture windows that display the views from the surrounding gardens and trees.  

An opposite point of view reveals some of the special features that make this room special-it has generous floorspace that easily accommodates a desk, a seating niche, and off to the right, its own private floor to ceiling closet.  

This desirable personal closet has floor to ceiling storage and clothes hanging space, and dual picture windows.  

The second floor bathroom has been updated as well, and includes a bathtub and shower combination, and twin windows.

A second bedroom continues the theme of off white walls, richly colored hardwood floors, and an exterior perspective,   

The third bedroom includes this space, and a additional play space to the left of the stairs that are seen here.  

The fully fenced and private back yard is a perfect retreat for a morning cup of coffee and a good book, or a pleasant chat with a good friend.  

If this truly outstanding home is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,379,000.
