This dramatic living room, with its stunning open beam peaked ceiling, and marvelously imaginative stone fireplace, is just the first of many impressions that convey the quality and charm that is represented in this Piedmont home located at 415 Scenic Avenue. It features 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a comfortable 3068 +/- sf of living space, and is ideally located close to downtown Piedmont, and just moments from the popular shops and restaurants of Montclair, Rockridge and the Grand Lake area.
Guests are welcomed by this sheltering wood shingled front porch and charming front door. The home is surrounded by, and settled in among, tall, well established oak trees, and extensive plants and greenery.
A slightly different view of the living room reveals the extensive glowing light that is flowing in from the many windows around the room, and the adjacent dining room area below. As seen here, and in the opening view, there is a flexibility of potential floor plans possible, due to the generous space available. Richly colored hardwood floors compliment the colors of the peaked ceiling above, making this an inviting and comfortable space.
Just down the stairs from the living area is this very comfortable, and cleverly designed dining area. The space is well suited to the simple wooden table and chairs format seen here, but a slightly more formal dining set with buffet would not be out of place.
Centrally located, and close to the dining and family room, is this handsome kitchen. Following through on the warmly colored wood theme, the multiple drawers and shelves are ideally placed for both quick access and storage. The kitchen has been upgraded to include a stone counter, refrigerator, gas range/cooktop, microwave and a self-cleaning over. Additionally, what a pleasure to be preparing food, and be able to enjoy the rolling hillside views just outside the picture window over the sink.
This delightful, and expansive family room is perfect entertaining friends, or being developed into a game or media room, if desired. One of its strongest assets is that the sliding glass door to the right opens onto an outside view balcony, seen below, offering additional recreational space.
This delightful balcony, settled comfortably on an inviting wooden deck-complete with tree-is just off the family room, and a perfect retreat for guests, or just as a quiet corner to enjoy a cup of coffee and a book. Note: all the balconies in the home overlook Moraga Canyon.
There are 4 bedrooms in the home. Three will be shown for your consideration. Above, is this truly generously sized bedroom with en suite bathroom, and room for a cozy sofa, chest of drawers, or perhaps a small central table, or a soft bench.
This second bedroom is equally adaptable, and its big picture window brings in warm sunlight, and irresistible views.
Another cheerful bedroom is seen here that is perfectly suited to a pair of twin beds, and is complimented with a set of cleverly placed inset windows.
As indicated earlier, and great deal of time and effort has been invested into this home to develop and upgrade it to its current desirable condition. This is one of the three bathrooms that has been imaginatively created to fit that need. With its stylish tile walls, and well thought out sink and mirror placement, it is perfect.
Another bathroom has been cleverly developed here, and its gleaming white and grey counter space, all glass stall shower, and imaginative mirror placement all reflect the result.
If you like the space and serenity of a hillside home surrounded by natural greenery and plants, this is the home for you. It is priced at $2,295,000. If this home, or a similar one, has caught your interest, I encourage you to call me with your questions and interests. I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.
