This cheerful home at 348 Jerome Avenue, with its pleasant front lawn and shade tree, and gracefully curved iron railing entryway, is perfectly located in central Piedmont. Just moments from Piedmont's impressive schools, it is also just a few minutes away from the popular shopping and dining venues of Montclair, Rockridge and Grand Lake. It offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in a very comfortable 1721 sf of living space.
This softly colored living room is immediately impressive. It is awash with the warmth of the glowing light from a dramatic view window that is topped with a graceful arch of yet more windows. Golden colored hardwood floors add even more appeal.
A handsome fireplace is a welcoming feature, and is especially ideal for quiet evenings by the fire, or for entertaining guests on a cooler evening. Be sure to note the raised ceiling, the generous window trim throughout the rooms in this, and other rooms, and most especially, notice the unique mouldings above the wooden trim that make this a truly desirable living space.
A formal dining room was an expected component of gracious homes of this era, and this one certainly fulfills that expectation. Just off the living room and kitchen, it is ideally located for hosting a pleasant meal, but could easily accommodate an informal luncheon, if required.
This attractive kitchen stands ready to meet the needs of the family chef. Anchored by a generous gas range/cooktop, it offers plentiful counter space, an impressive assortment of storage opportunities for favorite cooking and serving pieces, and can still can furnish space for a large assortment of china and glassware.
Another view shows how smoothly the dining room and the breakfast nook fit into the overall floor plan that is anchored by the kitchen. Once again, be sure to note the impressive wooden trim over all doors and windows, and the golden hardwood floors throughout.
Just off the kitchen is this delightful breakfast nook which is ideally suited for a relaxing breakfast or lunch, or perhaps a cup of afternoon tea, while enjoying the pleasant views of the outside greenery.
There are three bedrooms to be discovered. The first, above, features three sunny windows, and sufficient floor space to accommodate a possible side chair, and a roomy chest of drawers, in addition the the desk that is already in place.
The second bedroom is well proportioned, and furnishes an attractive floor plan.
While the third bedroom is currently being used as a nursery, if that use will not be required, and it is not yet needed as a bedroom, it could easily become a den, office or arts and crafts room.
There are two very comfortable bathrooms in the home. The first, above, has a very spacious dual sink format that is complimented with excellent storage space directly below, plentiful mirror space, and a stall shower.
The second bathroom has a shower over tub format, and continues the theme of plentiful counter space and a full length mirror over the sink area.
The back yard area is terraced upwards, is fenced, and has exterior deck space for outside relaxing or entertaining.
If this attractive and comfortable home, or one of similar size and location, is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly with your interest and questions. It is being offered for sale for $1,599,000. I look forward to working with you.
