This handsomely designed Piedmont home at 172 Mountain Avenue has dramatic curb appeal.  Located just a few moments from downtown Piedmont, it offers convenience of place, plus 4 bedrooms, and  2.5 baths in approximately 2004 sf of living space.  ( Be sure to spend some time with the floor plans that are included towards the end of this home summary)  

As is immediately obvious upon entering the home, a lot of thought has gone into designing this space to make it comfortable, and aesthetically appealing.  Of special note is the welcoming central fireplace, the warmth of hardwood floors, the rich wooden crown molding and the dramatic window treatments that will be noticed throughout the residence.  

There is a lot to be said about window treatments in this home.  As you enter, immediately to your right, you will notice the first of some gorgeous windows that characterize this delightful residence. 


The spectacular mullioned bay windows below grace the front of the home, and, with their design and color, are dramatic, whether viewed from inside or outside.  

The dining room windows continue the theme of a dramatic window appeal.  As with all formal dining rooms, these spaces are equally appealing for either casual meals, or for entertaining friends.  In addition, there is a built in buffet/sideboard for storing special china and glassware.

Just off the dining room is the kitchen.  Note the storage available, the updated appliances, the stone counter, and the warm flooring.  

There is a breakfast nook at the end of the kitchen that is cozy, and is highlighted by a built in banquette that adds to the total charm.

Also adjoining the kitchen is a super convenient laundry room and a half bath.  

The are four bedrooms on the second (see floor plan below).  Shown below is the master bedroom, with sliding glass mirrored closet doors, cheerful windows, and a personal bathroom.  

The equally attractive northwest bedroom is shown here -again, see floor plan below for reference.  

Immediately below is the southwest bedroom, which has a number of features to recommend it.  One of the most appealing is the door that leads to an outdoor balcony.  This spot is ideal for an afternoon's relaxing, and additionally, it furnishes a pleasant view of the area.  

This pleasant evening view below is available from the balcony of the southwest bedroom above.

The lower level of the house has two extra benefits.  The first is a bonus room, shown below, which is highly flexible, and could be used for numerous activities--office, playroom or media room.  

Also available in the lower level is this room shown here, now being used as a rumpus room, but is equally flexible.  

Stepping outside to the backyard, you will discover an appealing spacious, paved, and fenced backyard that furnishes a great deal of private recreational space for entertaining or relaxing.  

Here is another view of the home, and its backyard, that shows all that is available for your use.  

Below is the floor plan for all three floors of the home.  It is an excellent reference and aid to giving you a sense of what the home has to offer.  

This truly attractive home is being offered for sale for $1,750,000.  If this style of home, or another similar is appealing to you, please contact me at (510) 517-6280 to discuss your interests further.
