Very rarely do homes combine as many desirable elements as does 145 Lexford Road.  Well located in Piedmont, it offers panoramic San Francisco and Bay views from every level. Additionally, it has been designed by Val Arnold--named one of the Ten Most Important Designers in America as designated by Architectural Digest.  Its creative and imaginative space is welcoming and pleasing, and there are 5 bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths to add to the overall appeal.   

The commanding central fireplace and dramatic ceiling are just the first indications of the creativity and imagination to be seen throughout the house.  The open floor plan draws you in every direction, but the most impressive  pull is that of the multiple tall glass doors that lead to gracious garden .

 This home is so well suited to entertaining.  By way of example is the impressive is mirror topped wraparound bar, with its dramatic overhead lighting. Whether daytime or evening, your guests are sure to enjoy the graceful pool and hillside greenery just steps away.  

 Equally impressive is the floor to ceiling wall that separates the kitchen from the bar.  Made of elaborately designed Moroccan tile, it is a stunner.

 A home of this caliber deserves a very special kitchen, and it has that very thing--an upgraded kitchen with a restful view balcony.  Everything here has been designed for gracious living.  Just steps from the patio area on one side of the fireplace, and the formal dining area on the other, this charming kitchen is centrally located to provide delicious food for all.  The space is bright and airy, with light being drawn in from the generous windows, and being reflected in from the balcony.  There is room for a dinette area, and the hardwood floors add just the right amount of warmth.


A complete view of the kitchen reveals the multi-use central island work space, super roomy refrigerator, and storage of every style.  Whether you want to show off your glass wear or special china, or store away your more practical cooking utensils, there is space to do so here.

 When you want to have a more formal dining atmosphere, the huge dining room, with massive fireplace, warm wooden floors and wood beamed ceilings should easily  meet your needs.  As with the balcony in the kitchen, this room also has a dramatic window space that offers an ever changing panoramic Bay area view for your enjoyment.  

 While the home has 5 bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths, two of each deserve special attention.  The first, below, is the master bedroom, which offers an outstanding selection of amenities.  So many things catch they eye.  The huge wood beamed arched ceiling with glass skylight, the dramatic chandeliers that hang from it, are just a start.  A  welcoming fireplace holds pride of place to the right of the room, and a door directly opens to a unique master bathroom.  

 Stunning white wall to wall carpeting, exotic black entrance doors with unique arches, and a wall full of windows further enhance the ambiance.  

This handsome and unique master bathroom continues the warmth from the bedroom with bright lighting, warm coloring, and wooden floors.  It also has a sauna to enhance its charm,  making it a perfect accessory to the adjacent bedroom showplace. 


Another offering is this delightfully cheerful bathroom with a handsome bathtub, and expansive windows overlooking quiet greenery and city view.


This very comfortable bedroom is another example of the warmth offered in every room.  This one has a charming balcony that has a SF and Bay area view, which is ideal for an afternoon spot to read or just enjoy the quiet.  


Not to be outdone as a place for relaxation, is the home's extensive backyard garden space.  Well established trees and extensive planting of greenery makes this a warm and inviting spot.  

One of the home's strongest assets is its solar heated in ground pool, and accompanying cabana.  So many pleasant afternoons and evenings await you around this showplace.  A panoramic view of the Bay area is just steps away.


The home is ideally located just moments from the desirable shopping areas of Montclair and Rockridge via nearby Highway 13,  If this contemporary styled home is something that you would like to see, please call me at (510) 517-6280.  Additionally it has @6,360 sf of space and has an asking price of $3,600,000.  I look forward to working with you in your new home search.
