It's hard to deny the curb appeal of this delightful Piedmont home at 130 Sandringham Road.  Its graceful winding stairs leads up a charming arched gateway, and private front yard.  The peaked roof to the right, with its unique balcony and imaginative trim above, add even more to the overall presence.  It is no surprise that this home was designed by noted architects Williams and Wastell.  

 Just beyond the green arched gate is a welcoming garden, and inviting front porch that is an ideal spot for relaxing while enjoying the pleasant front yard. To the right, note the Tudor style diamond designed glass windows, and decorative wooden timbering.

The sturdy front door opens into a warm and spacious pair of rooms.  Off to the right is the family room, and a turn to the left leads to the dramatic and classically Tudor styled living room.  

The Tudor style home was created with the idea of replicating an English manor home, and you can certainly see that concept in the living room.  Rich wooden elements are everywhere--from the entry steps with an imaginative balcony above, to the warm wooden floors and dramatic vaulted ceiling and wooden cross beams above.  The very spacious central fireplace, completes the theme.  

This is an especially spacious front room.  Additionally, directly opposite the fireplace are the diamond style glass paned windows that look out onto the front garden, and allow wonderfully warm light into the room.   

A formal dining room is a must in a home of this quality, and this home is no exception.  With views through multiple windows, it is a warm and inviting place to share time with friends with a formal meal, or just relax for an afternoon lunch.   

A slightly different angle of the room just adds to the charm and warmth, offering a view to the front garden and gate.  

By looking at this impressively updated kitchen, you can see that this room was created with the intention of offering serious dining, and a welcoming ambiance for entertaining.  Full of light and color, with impressive floor and seating space, it also has generous work space.  The wood trimmed glass doors open onto the patio, and could stay open for parties and luncheons when the weather permits.  Of note are a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf gas range, stone counter, and Kalamera wine refrigerator.

 Flowing logically off the kitchen is this cheerful and welcoming family room that is easily placed to the right of the front entrance for a less formal spot to entertain or relax when guests arrive.

The master bedroom, shown here, is upstairs and is especially stunning.  With its dramatic ceiling, and warm wooden floors, it has three Bay view windows, and a true warmth.

 This updated master bathroom has so much to recommend it.  With dual sinks, cheerful white tile and a bathtub with jets, it is a perfect compliment to the restful master bedroom.  

This roomy and cheerful room is the second of three bedrooms in the home. 

 The third bedroom is equally expansive, well lit, and has multiple doors opening to closet space. 

 This well thought out office/study, with its multiple shelves, cabinets, and built in desk is a welcome addition to any home.  

The lower level is a perfect spot for this recreation room.  Appealingly designed to continue the manor house theme with its beamed ceiling and roomy brick topped fireplace, it offers yet another spot to compliment the kitchen and patio as an entertainment location.     

Just through the spacious glass doors from the kitchen is this very flexible and desirable patio area.  Created with the eye towards pleasant evenings in the garden, it features a sizeable firepit area, and a Blaze professional grill with rotisserie.  

This well established and well cultivated garden, with its wide array of trees and plants offers multiple sites for sitting and enjoying its calming atmosphere.   


Not to be missed is the city and bay views available for your enjoyment.  

This home is truly a elegant combination of the architecture of its original design, pleasingly combined with the  newer and extensive improvements that have been added. This 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath offers approximately 3831 sf for your consideration.   If this home, or another in the area interests you, I await your interest and questions. It is being offered for sale for $2,995,000.  Please call me at (510) 517-6280.
