This exceptional home, with its beautifully conceived tree lined front entryway, provides both beauty and privacy for its residents.  Located in Piedmont at 50 Wyngaard Avenue, it offers 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in a very generous 3671 sf +/- of living space.  

Well located, it has easy access to all the activities of Piedmont's schools, sports and recreation, and is equally close to the favored shops and restaurants of nearby Glenview and Montclair neighborhoods.  Easy connections to both Highways 580 and 13 are also available.  

Just at the end of the tree lined walkway from the front of the home, is this gracious private patio area inviting both residents and guests to enjoy its charm.  

The front of the home enhances this delightful site.  The entry is especially appealing with its supporting sets of twin columns and a classic dentil trimmed portico that is topped with a an imaginative wrought iron balcony.  

A notable foyer welcomes guests with warmth and beauty.  The softly lit overhead chandelier, warmly colored hardwood floors, and detailed craftsmanship of the staircase, reflect the quality of this home.  

As with all houses of this caliber, a large and welcoming fireplace is centrally placed around which guests and residents can gather.  This fireplace is richly enhanced with a decorated surround featuring a pair of faux columns, and its mantle can easily accommodate favorite art and collectibles.

Especially remarkable is the creative use of raised wood trim on the adjacent walls and around the set of matching bookcases.  

A reverse perspective depicts the size of the living area, the floor to ceiling side window, and the doors that swing wide to the front patio area, summoning guests to move outside to enjoy the marvelous gardens.   

Across from the living room is this spacious and glowing formal dining room.  It can easily accommodate a large dinner party, and still afford additional space for a large buffet server and cocktail bar.  

Its pleasant ambiance is enhanced by an elegant chandelier, and is still further enhanced by the surrounding wainscoting and crown moulding along the walls.  

A home of this size and quality deserves a large efficient kitchen, and this room does not disappoint.  Multiple stone counters provide generous working and preparation space for the home chef.  

Updated appliances include a dishwasher, gas range, built in oven, and refrigerator.  

A different perspective reveals the floor to ceiling storage and display space that is available for use.  At every level there is a cabinet, drawer or glass display case ready to hold favorite china, glassware, silver and  cookware.    

Just steps away is this handsome eat in kitchen--perfect for a casual lunch or buffet on a lazy afternoon.  Guests and residents can stroll outside to enjoy the nearby gardens, as well.  

The elegant stairway to the upper floors is seen here.  Worthy of note is the distinctive and imaginative curve at the top of the stairs that enhances its beauty yet again.

Just at the top of the staircase is this imaginative wrought iron trimmed balcony combined with French doors that open outwards to allow views of the front of the home and garden pathways.  

The second floor features three large bedrooms.  The first, seen here, is the primary bedroom that includes an en suite bathroom.  Sunlight streams in from large, well placed windows, and its serenity creates  a welcoming retreat at the end of a long day.  

The second bedroom easily accommodates two comfortably sized beds, side tables and a long chest.  It can also be redesigned and reconfigured, depending on need, to something new and fresh.  

The third bedroom is well placed with a view over the nearby trees and gardens.  An addition of a window seat would be an excellent choice to enjoy the scene below.  

The lower floor of the home features this very large family room that offers its own kitchenette, plus a bedroom and bathroom.  

The size of the lower level is quite impressive.  It invites the creation of an imaginative use of space, light and color to design an exciting living concept for both guest and residents. 

 If this outstanding Piedmont residence is of interest to you, please call me with your questions and interest.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.  The home is being offered for sale for $2,795,000.
