There is so much to experience when one enters this exceptional home located at 115 Latham Street in Piedmont. It offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2098 sf of living space.
Its size allows room for a large living room seating area that is centered around a classic central brick fireplace. An expansive built in glass fronted bookcase invites displays of favorite books and collectibles, with yet more space directly opposite for a wide wooden bureau with its dual layers of drawers and display surface.
Much of the drama of this room is created by the exposed beam peaked ceiling that runs the length of the room, and with its coloring that subtly contrasts with the room's darker hardwood flooring.
Guests can enjoy the comforts of the living room, and, when events and activities dictate, move freely through the large floor to ceiling glass doors to enjoy the comfort and beauty of the home's carefully crafted patio space.
Just steps away is this inviting and gleaming dining room that is perfectly placed close to the kitchen for ease of service, and to the sliding glass door's access to the backyard.
Its location is perfect when food for the large central table can be perfectly arranged and presented as a party buffet site.
With most of the far living room wall especially adapted to indoor outdoor living, one would expect the home's patio space to be especially spacious and welcoming, and it does not disappoint.
As is seen here, and below, the patio is fenced, partially tree sheltered, and fully paved.
The kitchen is clean, crisp, and gleaming with light offered from overhead, and through the multiple sets of windows on its side walls. A large, and convenient stone kitchen counter serves multiple purposes as a dining counter, a food service station, and a preparation space, depending upon the need.
Another perspective reveals the generous amount of preparation space that is available around the room. It is efficiently coupled with a variety of both shelving, and below counter storage.
Feature appliances include a stove/cooktop, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator.
There are three bedrooms in the residence. The first, seen above, is the very pleasant corner primary suite. It has enough floorspace to allow various presentations of seating, chests of drawers, perhaps a pair of soft sided chairs and a small personal desk.
The en suite primary bathroom is outstanding in its amenities, as seen below. Immediately adjacent to the bedroom is a wide mirrored door closet to the right, and, directly opposite, is a long and multi-level chest of drawers--all perfect for storing collections of clothing, toweling, sheets, and whatever else may be chosen.
Moving further in, the primary bathroom also incudes excellent overhead lighting, dual windows, two sinks, a shower over tub format, and enclosed toilet.
The second bedroom is aglow with light from the three large picture windows that often reflect the light off the mirrored sliding glass closet doors during the day.
A pair of charming twin beds illustrate the floorspace available in this third bedroom. Once again, floor to ceiling glass fronted closet doors, and a trio of view windows reveal the thought and appeal of this home's design.
The second bathroom is compact, and efficient, and offers a spacious walk in shower and dual sinks.
There is also an additional space that is currently being used as an office space, but its use is as flexible as one's needs.
This view of the backyard reveals the charm of the garden, the shade provided by the trees and hedges, and the many opportunities that are possible in this expansive and private retreat.
The front of the home reveals its truly charming curb appeal. Subtle, but imaginative in design, its well established greenery and graceful lines make it a home worth serious consideration. I invite you to call me regarding it at (510) 517-6280. It is being offered for sale for $1,995,000.
