This very attractive Mid-Century Modern style view home is located at 148 Sandringham Road in Piedmont.  Delightfully tucked in among well established trees and gardens, it offers 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in approximately 2092 sf of space. Well thought out in design and presentation, it is immediately impressive upon entry through the handsome door below.  


This very dramatic front room has so many things that make it true to its architectural roots of Mid-Century Modern.  The goal of bringing the outdoor light inside through expansive windows, the dramatic angled beam ceiling, and the imaginative fireplace all contribute to the design, as do the dramatic flat wall panels around the room.  

Because of its hill location, yet another asset is added to the home's value--a view of the SF Bay . This view illustrates the spaciousness of the glass windows that allow such a delight.  No matter what the hour, there is always something to be seen when looking over the Bay.  

What a treat to see the sunlight sparkling on the water.  Equally appealing is a  soothing moonlight view.  

The heart of the home is said to be the kitchen.  Whether you enjoy quiet evenings at home, formal dining, or frequent entertaining, this kitchen is set to meet all of those needs.  This kitchen reflects its updating.  Note the current appliances and very spacious tile counter.  Particularly appealing is the door to the outside that allows convenient passage to the patio area, should you wish to enjoy the backyard while dining.  

The reverse view of the kitchen reveals the cheerful over the sink window space, the very substantial selection of drawers and cabinets for your china, glassware and cooking needs, and the size of the generous stone counter workspace.  Additionally, immediately adjacent, is the home's  very inviting formal dining room.  

What a charming dining area.  It works on any level-formal or casual.  A well thought out built-in hutch has room for all your special china and glassware, but can also serve as a display area for your very unique collectibles.  

Immediately adjacent to both the kitchen and the dining room is this very comfortable family room which is just perfect for relaxing, reading or viewing media.  As can been seen, it, too is just off the patio and backyard for easy access.  

There are 4 bedrooms in the home.  Three are being shown below for your review.  The bedroom immediately below is relaxing,  It features generous windows that open to the greenery of the outside gardens, and warmly colored wooden flooring.  

This bedroom continues the design concept of plentiful window space, stylish flooring, and flexibility of floor plan.  

Yet another bedroom that features flexibility and charm.  If four bedrooms are not needed, any of these rooms could be easily converted into an office space, library or hobby room.  

Both bathrooms are shown below.  The one immediately below has handsome and colorful tile designs in both the shower, and along the sink.  

This streamlined dual sink bathroom is warm in color, and practical in its floor plan.  Plenty of imaginative lighting adds yet more desirability.

It is hard to deny the attraction of this warm and welcoming backyard.  While there is certainly privacy, there is also a variety of trees and plants, and level garden space that should appeal to any gardener.  What an attractive spot for teas, luncheons or just quiet relaxation.  

This home is ideally located just moments from the very appealing Montclair Village, and not far from the in demand shops and restaurants of the popular Rockridge, Grandlake and Lakeshore shopping centers.  Equally close by are Highways 13 and 580 that allow prompt access to downtown Oakland, San Francisco, and Contra Costa County.  

This home is being offered for sale for $1, 695,000.  Please note that I live in Piedmont, and I am very familiar with the real estate market in the area.  If this home, or any other in the marketplace appeals to you, please feel free to contact me immediately at ((510)517-6280.
