This very handsome three story home located at 618 Moraga Avenue in Piedmont has been well designed throughout.  Dramatic, and often subtle, touches of quality appear in every room.  It is hard to enter this home and not be impressed by its essence.  It has a very spacious 2759 sf +/- of living space in which are found 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  

One of the elements of a Craftsman style home is creative and well proportioned use of wood in the forms of door, ceiling, and window frame treatments.  This is immediately obvious as you enter the home.  A settle style bench is in place to add to the ambiance.

Following the beautiful hardwood floors, upon entry, one can turn right to reach the living room, or left to the formal dining room.  

Turning right to the living room, one is greeted by an amazing showplace of a living room.  Dominated by a large wood burning fireplace, it features built in glass fronted cabinets, wood paneled walls, and a truly impressive Craftsman style beamed interior ceiling.  

The view from the balcony over the living room shows the handsome windows in the front of the home.

To the left of the entryway is the dining room.  One of the most impressive features you will encounter here are the beautiful tapered wooden columns that frame the entrance to this room, and the architectural theme of paneled walls, hardwood floors, and beamed ceilings is continued.

Also included is a very desirable built in Craftsman styled sideboard with glass doors for display of the very special china and glassware.  

The immediately adjacent kitchen has been updated, and is now bright and welcoming, and well suited to the formal meal in the dining room, or a more casual outside meal through its door that opens onto the very spacious backyard and patio areas.  

There are four very appealing bedrooms, two of which are shown here for your review and consideration.  What makes each of these bedrooms unique is that each has a charming window seat to compliment the room's total appeal.

Another added feature of this home is a very pleasant and roomy media room.  While it certainly fits those needs, it could also be converted to a hobby room or office if preferred. 

A mature and restful backyard awaits, ideal for relaxing, reading, gardening or entertaining.

This very handsome home is very well located, just moments from shopping in Montclair, Rockridge or the Grand Lake area.  The asking price is $1,695,000.  If you would like to see this home, or others like it, please contact me at (510) 517-6280.  I look forward to working with you.
