This light filled mid-century modern home is ideally located just minutes from downtown Piedmont, and nearby Montclair at 5 Calvert Court in Piedmont. It represents all that is desired in a home of this design--walls of glass, open space, and integration with nature. It offers a very appealing 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths in approximately 3149 sf of living space.
The opening view of the enclosed patio/courtyard combines with the view above of the living room, to illustrate the smooth transition between the indoor and the outdoor living spaces. No matter what the season, the views are always changing and restful.
The interior view heightens the sense of space and light. The lightly colored hardwood floors, the subtle recessed lighting, and the surrounding walls of glass windows all contribute to the effect.
This imaginatively designed fireplace serves as a centerpiece of the room, and of course, is a perfect anchor for a pleasant evening of entertaining friends, or relaxing close by on a chilly evening. Of note, to the left is a bonus/plus room, and to the right is the formal dining room.
Just steps away from the living room is the dining room. Homes of this era generally featured a formal dining room, and this one is particularly well placed just off the courtyard views.
A expansive set of sliding glass doors seen here, makes the transition from the outside to the indoors so easy, that one could imagine guests moving freely during a luncheon or dinner from one area to another as the day transitions.
Additionally, there is also a family room that adds yet more desirability to the home's appeal. Very spacious, it is a perfect spot for casual dining, board games, or TV viewing. There is no doubt, however, that the imaginative skylights are one of its most impressive attractions.
This sparkling kitchen has been recently updated with a goal to making this an outstanding center of the home, and a place for imaginative meal preparation and entertaining. Prime features include stone counters, built in range/oven, microwave, and an expansive refrigerator.
A wider view shows the impressive window space and the expanse of the pleasant gardens that is afforded the home cook while preparing meals. An ideally sized nook is perfect for a casual eat-in kitchen location.
Just through the sliding glass door off the garden, is a room that is currently being used for an office. While that is certainly a useful option, other opportunities present themselves for its use-including a library, media room, craft room, or study
There are four bedrooms in the home. Two are being shown her for your consideration. The first, above, is both spacious and flexible. Highlighted by attractive window space, and warm wooden floors, it is an relaxing and light filled retreat.
Immediately adjacent is this attractive bathroom with dual sinks, generous overhead lighting, and plenty of counter space, and storage space.
A second bedroom truly illustrates the design concept of "bringing the outside in" through its multiple glass doors, one set of which slides open to the soothing garden space.
If this outstanding home interests you, I would encourage you to call me promptly for a viewing at (510) 517-6280. Its classic design is always popular, and the location of this home just minutes from central Piedmont, Montclair and the Grand Lake shops and restaurants just adds more to its appeal. It is being offered for sale for $1,995,000.
