This sparkling home with its contrasting blue color supplemented with cheerful white trim, and the well thought out front garden, has immediate curb appeal.  Its classic design give it a unique charm that is always in demand. Located at 1674 Lower Grand Avenue in Piedmont, it offers 3 bedrooms and 2 baths in a roomy 1594+/-sf of living space.  It would be difficult to find a better location for those who would like to enjoy the outstanding choice of shops and restaurants nearby in the Rockridge and Grand Lake area neighborhoods.

 A very pleasant entry way is created with this covered and fenced front porch.  The handsome front door with its attractive wood trim adds yet more warmth.

 Once inside, it becomes obvious that this home is perfect for those who enjoy both entertaining and relaxing in a truly comfortable home.  A dramatic fireplace offers a variety of options for a floor plan in this roomy space, and features a wide wooden mantel with plentiful space to display collectibles or glassware.  

The living room is surprisingly spacious, with its unique room extension area to the right of the fireplace. Featuring a wall of windows, this space compliments the other windows to create a delightful place to spend time.  Extra quality is seen in the impressive wooden trim around the windows, doors, and the ceiling moulding throughout the home, while the hardwood floors add yet more value.   

A pleasant archway leads from the living room into the adjacent formal dining room.  It is hard to deny the appeal of a formal dining room.  While it is perfect for entertaining and everyday evening meals, it is equally flexible as a buffet site for living room entertaining, or as a casual lunch site.  

Stepping out of the dining room into the adjacent kitchen is a delight.  This cheerful, white tiled kitchen is ready to please the fussiest chef in the family.   

Recently updated, the room includes the many expected amenities of a modern kitchen. Be sure to note the gleaming  refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, gas/range cooktop, and built in range oven.  

 A special plus, seen here, is the door that leads to the outside porch area that allows easy food service directly from the kitchen area.  Also shown here is the adjacent utility room.

This sunny room has been adapted for a dual use.  With plentiful room for a large washer and dryer set, it still has space for a cozy mini office space, if desired.  

 As indicated earlier, the house has three bedrooms.  The first, with its sweeping window space, has views of both the outside porch and garden greenery.  

 This handsome second bedroom on the main floor continues the home's theme of radiant light, desirable window and door trim, and warm hardwood floors.

Worthy of note is the slightly different view of this second bedroom which reveals that while it is on the main floor, adjacent steps lead up a level to the master bedroom, making it a split level residence.    

This updated bathroom is located on the main floor, and, as can be seen, a great deal thought went into making it especially attractive.  The multiple tile surfaces, new sink, shower over tub format, and delightful claw foot tub reflect the effort.  



The master bedroom is just up a few stairs from the main floor, and features its own private bathroom. 

Just off the kitchen, outside the previously mentioned kitchen door to the exterior, is this very pleasant roofed deck space.  Located among multiple trees and plantings, it make a very relaxing spot for entertaining, or  for reading, while perhaps enjoying a cup of tea or lemonade. 

Stepping down from the deck, one reaches an attractive and private back patio area with ample space for sunny dining and recreation.   

Just off the patio, is a very pleasant surprise offered by this outstanding built out basement area.  Plans for the future could be made regarding this current expansive space.  

 I would encourage you to call me promptly with your questions and interest regarding this house.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.  Should other Piedmont properties interest you, I would be glad to work with you to find your ideal home.  This residence is being offered for sale for $1,395,000.
