This stylish and welcoming home at 230 Park View Avenue in Piedmont, is extremely well located on a corner lot, and just steps away from popular Witter Field. Its classic stucco exterior, topped by a cheerful red tile roof, colorful plants and trees, epitomizes the charming curb appeal of this Mediterranean style of architecture. It offers 3 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths in a roomy 1809 sf +/- of living space.
The arched entryway, paired with two classically styled entry columns, is a perfect spot for a cozy afternoon's relaxing on the porch.
The living room is well thought out, and is centered by a uniquely designed fireplace, topped with a classic matching inset arch. Paired bookshelves on either side of the fireplace are perfect for collectibles, beautiful glassware, art pieces, or your favorite books.
The room is awash in light from its multiple matching windows on either side. These are paired with the spacious windows to the left in the dining room. Be sure to notice the crown moulding on the ceiling, and rich wood trim along the floors, and warm wooden floors throughout the home as you tour.
As with all homes of this era, a formal dining room was expected, and well used. Just off the living room, it features handsome windows for pleasant greenery viewing while dining, and is highlighted by an impressive, and very useful, built in buffet.
Be sure to note the rich woodworking in this room, especially around the gently arched, multi-paned view windows.
This cheerful wrap-around styled kitchen features a colorful stone counter and multi-level storage space. Directly to its right, is a welcoming eat-in kitchen nook (seen directly below) that is perfect for a morning breakfast, or leisurely lunch.
This pleasing kitchen nook area, with sunlight pouring in, is an ideal place for a quiet afternoon cup of tea, or a spot where guests can talk with the chef while meals are being prepared.
Two of the home's bedrooms are located on the upper level. Above, the first bedroom, generous in size, has plentiful window space, hardwood floors, and a pleasant ambiance.
The second bedroom is equally pleasant, with its sunny light illuminating the room.
Immediately adjoining the two bedrooms is the very handsome and updated bathroom with well thought out tiling that highlights the shower space.
This delightful third bedroom is warm and inviting with its view to the greenery outside, spacious floor plan, and perfect half bathroom.
An extra attraction with this house is this unique bonus/plus room. With its wealth of shelving and storage, it offers opportunities to create a family room, a study, an office, or an arts and craft room.
The fenced backyard features well established plants and trees for your enjoyment, and space to entertain friends on a pleasant afternoon.
This engaging home is well designed, well located, and offers Piedmont schools as an added benefit. If it interests you, I would encourage you to call me promptly with your questions and interest at (510) 517-6280. It is being offered for sale for $1,449,000.
