This stunning view, and the view seen below, are available for your enjoyment and delight at this ideally located Piedmont home at 169 Ronada Avenue. What a pleasure to be able to sit out on this spacious deck and enjoy the entire sweep of the Oakland and San Francisco panorama at any hour of the day.
This home sits high enough to offer you these dramatic views, and is located just moments from the in demand shopping venues of Rockridge, Grand Lake and Lakeshore Avenues. Additionally, downtown Piedmont, and Montclair village offer yet more shopping and dining opportunities
This handsome home with its beautifully groomed gardens and hedges, is instantly appealing. A gently graded set of stairs leads to an impressive front entrance topped with a dramatically covered archway. This pleasant home offers 3 bedrooms and 2 baths in a comfortable 1695 sf +/- of living space.
This warm and welcoming entryway is comfortable and spacious. Guests are able to move smoothly to any area of the home. The quality of workmanship is evident in every direction. The first impression is that of warm golden hardwood floors, and the second has got to be the extensive amount of workmanship in the rich wooden trim through much of the home that is to be seen around the doors, windows, and ceiling.
The floor plan of this delightful living room is designed to please. The fireplace is handsomely colored, spacious, and has a roomy mantel that is just perfect for displaying collectibles or art. To complement this central showpiece is the pair of tall bookcases that provide open shelves on the top, and closed shelving on the bottom. A final element of charm is the window seat-just perfect for reading one of the books from the adjacent bookshelves.
An opposite view of the living room illustrates the amount of space available to create one's own special floor plan. The entryway is to the right, and the dining room to the right of that.
To the right of the entryway, and just off the kitchen, is this sunlit dining area. Equally flexible as a breakfast room, or formal dining room, it features a delightful, and in demand, corner display cabinet. Classic for the era of this home, it is perfectly sized to store serving pieces, glassware, and linen for the next meal.
Just off the dining room is this cheerful kitchen. It has been updated, and has a built in oven, a gas range cooktop, a dishwasher, and a wide picture window over the sunny sink area.
With a slightly different angle, one can see the plentiful counter work space, and, even more unique, the truly impressive amount of storage space that is available for use- whether cooking, serving or dining. There is also a small kitchen preparation area just off the main kitchen, if needed.
Just off the kitchen and back entry area is this very expansive laundry room, with room for a large washer and dryer, a prep sink, and a plentiful storage space for your linen.
Adjacent to the kitchen is this tiled area that leads from the kitchen area to the backyard. This handy door makes entertaining particularly easy, since food can be easily transported from one area to the other.
There are three bedrooms in the residence. The first, shown here, has an impressive view of the Bay area outside one window, and of pleasant greenery through the other.
The second bedroom is just across the hall from the first, and each features handsomely colored hardwood floors and the crown moulding, window and door trim that add to the appeal of both.
As is seen here, the third bedroom has been adapted to other uses, and become a comfortable office space with room for a desk and a pair of comfortable chairs. A sofa, bookcase or display cabinets could just as easily be placed here as well.
An inviting and well established garden awaits at the rear of the house. There are multiple sites for a relaxing or reading, or perhaps enjoying a quiet luncheon among the shade trees.
If this house, with its outstanding location and view appeals to you, I encourage you to call me promptly with your questions and interest. It is being offered for sale for $1,475,000. I can be reached at (510) 517-6280. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you in finding your new home.
