This handsome home at 25 Wistaria Way, is surrounded by well established trees, delightfully tended gardens, and features a spacious lot that makes outdoor entertaining an ideal choice. It offers 5 bedrooms and 4 baths, and is  located just moments from downtown Piedmont .  Of interest-it was designed by famous architect Frederick Confer for his own use.  

 A few steps down reveals this delightful patio that offers peace and relaxation, and is highlighted by an imaginative and soothing fountain.  Your privacy is assured by the wrap around wall, and a well established backdrop of soothing trees.

 Another view, and the view below, reveals the imaginative effort that has gone into creating this cozy corner of the home.

  This impressive entryway, with an attractive door topped by a graceful pediment, and featuring matching entryway pillars, is complimented with a flowing pair of entry vines.  

This living room virtually glows from the effects of the stunning wall of windows that lets in impressive amounts of outdoor sunshine, coupled with the gleaming hardwood floors that are found throughout the house.  The room is built around the welcoming and impressive central fireplace with its commanding and spacious mantel that is impressive in design, and features room for display of favorite art or collectibles.

 An opposite view of the living room reveals the easy flow from the living room to the formal dining room.  This format is perfect for entertaining guests and offering pre-meal appetizers before moving into the dining room for a more formal dinner.  Of note is the unique crown moulding seen above.  

 Yet another perspective of the living room/dining room combination is the presence of two spacious French doors from the dining area that open to the spacious and welcoming outside back patio area.  

 The stylish formal dining room is especially appealing.  It is highlighted with an warmly lit inset buffet/server, which is perfectly suited for both food service and storage of your best china and serving pieces. 

As befits a home of this size, the kitchen is spacious, and features a long expanse of counter work space.  At the end of this long counter is a little nook for a mini-office.  Large windows over the sink allow in the garden and deck views.  The amount of storage space at every level is impressive

  A reverse view of the kitchen area reveals a comfortable kitchen/family room combination.  It is ideal for a casual dining area for friends, and is a perfect spot to chat with the cook during meal preparations.

There are 5 bedrooms in the home.  Three are being shown here for your consideration. Above is a generous sized bedroom with adjacent bathroom.  There is flexibility in floor plan here.  There is a desk under the window now, but it could easily be replaced with a cozy widow seat.

 This cheerful bedroom has outside views, built in display/book cases, and room for a small sofa or desk.  

A third bedroom is easily created from this basic floorplan , and can easily meet multiple needs. 

 While there are five bedrooms, not all need to be used as such.  An example is shown above.  One of the bedrooms has been converted into this attractive reading room. It could as easily be a study or office space.  

 Of the four bathrooms, this gleaming master bathroom is the most impressive.  Recently updated, it features a spacious sunken tub, a stall shower, and a roomy twin sinks.  

Another highlight of the home is this very attractive rear deck.  Located just outside the family room, it is a perfect spot for entertaining, and food can be easily transported from the nearby kitchen. 

 A reverse perspective on the back deck shows the impressive doors from the dining room that open to the outside.  Whether you choose to host a large party, or just want to relax under the pleasant trees, this deck is ideal for either use.  

If this home, or a similar one, interests you, I encourage you to contact me promptly regarding it.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.  The home has approximately 3147 sf of living space, and is being offered for sale for $1,895,000.  I look forward to working with you.
