This warm and appealing brown shingle cottage is perfectly designed for those who enjoy being surrounded by nature in its most pleasant form, while being ideally located for shopping, schools and commuting.  Located at 128 Sunnyside Avenue in Piedmont, it is just moments from the Grand Lake, Piedmont Avenue and Rockridge neighborhoods, and yet sits serenely among long established plants, roses, and citrus trees.  It offers 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and 1460 +/- sf of living space.  

The first impression upon entering this charming home is the bright and cheerful ambiance that is achieved by the spacious windows throughout the room.  In fact, the entry way has its own window under which a pleasant bench adds more cheer..  A spacious guest closet, and gracefully arched entryway completes the welcoming atmosphere for both guests and residents.  

 A reverse view of the living room shows the comfortable space that is available, and features warmly colored wooden floors that contrast nicely with the brighter walls.  A pleasing shade tree just off the front entrance provides even more color and contrast.

Just steps away from the living room is this stellar formal dining room with large sliding glass doors to a view porch.  This design is just perfect for a variety of dining options.  Should one want formal dining, it is easily achieved.  However, open the sliding glass doors to the outside, and an afternoon luncheon or tea for friends is easily achieved.  

A slightly different angle reveals the amount of window and door space that is offered to truly "let the outside in" when desired.  Both windows and doors are easily opened for bright and sunny  garden views.   

This outside porch area offers a delightful and very scenic place for a relaxing afternoon of reading, or perhaps enjoying a cup of coffee.  The view is extensive and varied.  

 There has been an impressive amount of updating in the kitchen.  Included would be the island with a gas cooktop, huge refrigerator, dishwasher and oven.   Be sure to note the extensive work space and counter space that every chef desires.  Cheerful tile work above the counters, and gentle recessed lighting above, adds even more appeal. The final touch is the outstanding window space that runs the length of the room, and is combined with view window that is included above the kitchen sink 

 Both kitchen views show the truly impressive amount of storage space that is available at virtually level of the room.  There is hardly a spot that does not provide a unique place for cookware, china, serving pieces and special glassware.  

There are two plus bedrooms available in this home.  The first, above, is exceedingly spacious,  has room for a desk or dresser space, and provides a virtual wall of closet and storage space.  

 A reverse view of the room illustrates the size of the closet space, but also reveals the door that leads to a highly desirable covered porch space seen below.  

 This additional porch space is a true asset.  Surrounded by the long established plants and trees and greenery of the home, it is a bit more private than the dining area porch, and, perhaps for some, could be more appealing.   

Nearby a second cheerful bedroom offers a door to the outside porch area as well.  

There is also what is being defined as a "plus bedroom" available.  However, if that space is not needed as a bedroom, it would be ideal for an office, a study or an arts and craft room-especially with the outside lighting that is available.  

As mentioned above, there is a long garden approach to the front door which is both colorful and welcoming to guests and visitors.  

This serene hill view is a delight, and it, and garden views mentioned above,  are available through a myriad of windows throughout the home  or by just stepping outside on either porch.  

If this home interests you, or you have further questions regarding it, or a similar home in the area, I encourage you to call me promptly.  It is being offered for sale for $1,049,000.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.  I look forward to working with you.
