This gracious home is located at 1032 Mountain Boulevard in Oakland, just moments from Montclair Village. It offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in approximately 1531 sf of living space.
The handsome front door opens to reveal this gleaming living room that is surrounded in light. From its virtually floor to ceiling front windows, to the expanse of windows and doors that surround the living and dining area, this home truly invites the outside in.
Worthy of note is the stylish presence of the white wooden trim around the home's windows, doors, ceilings and floors that reflect the commitment that has been made to providing quality construction.
Anchored by a large central fireplace with pillar styled surround and display mantel, the living room transitions easily into the dining room in such a way that entertaining is effortless and comfortable. Guests can move easily from one space to another, be seated for formal dining, or transition to the outside patio area just beyond the large French doors at the end of the room.
This dining area is large enough for hosting a group of friends, with room remaining for a large server and additional seating. It would be an ideal buffet table for parties and events that are being held outdoors.
Stepping out into the backyard, the rear of home is revealed to be an soothing personal retreat providing a full lower patio, and an upstairs lawn sanctuary among well established greenery, trees, and gardens. A colorful orange tree anchors the far corner.
A good working kitchen is the goal of every home chef, and this kitchen does not disappoint. With its wrap around floor pattern, everything is just steps away, providing ease in food preparation. Topped by a cheerful skylight, this updated kitchen provides many amenities--a stone counter, a built in gas range/cooktop, a microwave and refrigerator.
Two extra amenities add to the comfort and usefulness of the kitchen. To the right is a space for an eat in kitchen nook, and directly across is an effective use of floorspace that provides a built in office/desk.
There are 3 bedrooms in the home. Two will be shown for your consideration. The large bedroom above has set back view windows that await a soft window seat beneath for reading and relaxation. The darker hardwood floors contrast beautifully with the white trim and light grey walls. Not seen in this view is a large double door closet opposite the foot of the bed.
A second cheerful bedroom is comfortably sized with room for a pair of nightstands and side chair and large dresser.
Returning to the rear of the home, where residents are sure to spend a great deal of time, this perspective reveals the quality and expanse of the backyard. A wide selection of trees and plants await at many viewing levels.
Yet another view of the gardens shows the serenity of the property, and its location among other equally substantial surrounding properties.
Another smaller garden space is found in the front of the home, and greets guests as they arrive at the front door. It is centered around this very distinctive and appealing fountain.
If this very comfortable home, with its delightful curb appeal, or another Montclair home, is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280. This residence is being offered for sale for $1,095,000.
