This elegant entry gate opens to reveal an impressively designed Piedmont home located at 191 Sandringham Road.  This home is warm and welcoming, and is ideal for entertaining, with its gracious patio space, and expansive interiors.  It offers 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths, and a Bay Bridge and San Francisco city lights view.  

As you descend the entry steps, you are immediately charmed by this delightful patio that is surrounded by balconies and windows that were designed to allow garden, patio, and area views from virtually every level of the house.

A garden level view shows the exceptional outdoor space that is perfectly designed for a pleasant afternoon's enjoyment -whether for private relaxation, or entertaining for a luncheon or tea.  

This impressive living room illustrates that relaxation and leisure can be had at every section of the home-whether interior or exterior. The impressive fireplace, with its decorative mantel, will offer a cozy warmth on chilly winter evenings, and the sweep of the room allows a flexibility of floor plans. Be sure to note the French doors to the right that open to a handsome covered balcony featuring Bay area views.  

 A reverse view further illustrates the space available in the front room, the stately front door and entryway, and the stairs to the second floor.  French doors on either side of the fireplace lead directly out to the patio/courtyard, allowing an easy entry or exit in either direction.  

This desirable covered balcony, just outside the living room, is a delightful place to relax during any hour of the day, since these views of the Bay area change hour by hour, and season by season. 

This glowing formal dining room is just what one would expect from a home of this caliber.  It offers warmly colored hardwood flooring, and other impressive touches that include an imaginative crown moulding, full wainscoting, and recessed lighting. 

 Another angle of the dining room reveals a full access to the covered balcony--a location that the dining area shares with the living room. This is a perfect design for moving freely about from one room to another, especially when the views are special.

This handsomely kitchen offers everything that a creative cook could want.  The appliances are updated, and the ambiance is enhanced with the cheerful tile back splash above the stove and counter. The central island allows yet more work space, and the cozy eat in dining area is ideal for a quick lunch or breakfast, or a spot to sit and converse with the chef while dinner is being prepared.  

 This impressive room is well suited as a library or study, but is also flexible enough for a home office or quiet retreat.

 This exceedingly spacious bedroom is highlighted with multiple windows that open up onto a expansive Bay area view.  Whether day or night, it is hard to deny the appeal of this feature.  Note roomy closet space to the left, and an adjacent updated bathroom to the right.  

This stylish bathroom with a stall shower, and plentiful counter and storage space is just off the bedroom shown above.  Note that the windows that open to the outside greenery.

There are 5 bedrooms in the home.  Three are being shown here for your review.  In addition to the view bedroom mentioned earlier, this comfortable bedroom is a worthy of note.  Equally generous, it is flexible enough to offer numerous configurations.  

A third bedroom shown here also features windows with Bay area views, and, if all five bedrooms are not needed, could be an excellent site for an office, or perhaps and arts and craft room.  

To add even more flexibility to this already exceptional home is a room that is currently being used as a rumpus/recreation room.  Highlighted with a handsome fireplace and views, and access to the outside patio area, it is a welcome addition to an already desirable home.

This relaxing lower balcony area is well thought out.  Its graceful arches above are complimented with overhead beams and impressive iron railings.


One other area worth consideration is the lower level au pair/in law unit shown above.   Cozy, yet flexible, it is inviting and attractive for many potential uses. 


The well established trees, plants and bushes frame the very pleasing city views from the home, and, at the same time insure privacy as you use the gardens.  

 If this stellar home, with all its many amenities, is appealing to you, I would encourage to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280. It is perfectly located in Piedmont, and just moments from downtown Piedmont, and nearby schools. It is approximately 4188 sf in size, and is being offered for sale for $2,680,000.  I look forward to answering any questions that you might have regarding it.
