This pleasant Piedmont home with its gracious curb appeal, combines its defining architectural presence with the warmth of its green grass and pleasant gardens.  

Located just moments from central Piedmont's schools and activities at 105 Estates Drive, it is equally close to the small town shopping and dining charm of Montclair and Glenview .  Commuting connections are ideal with Highway 13 just up the hill.  

It offers 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a very generous 2993 sf +/- of living space.  

The distinctive architectural style reflects the crisp Art Deco era simplicity that combines simple exterior trim with multi level windows and doors that invite light in from virtually every angle.  Worthy of note are the two large bay windows in both the front and rear of the home.  

Guests are welcomed into this handsome entry hall that immediately reflects the tenor of the home.  The color theme throughout is softly golden colored hardwood flooring, and off white walls and ceiling. 

The staircase combines this theme with contrasting black handrails.  An entryway, with two fluted vertical columns, leads to the living area.   

This comfortable living room is anchored by a very distinctive fireplace with a remarkable surround and mantel, that immediately catches the eye.  Additionally, the room is large, and welcomes a variety of potential design conceptions.  

A reverse perspective reveals the amount of light that flows in from the multiple windows that surround the room, and open to the outside gardens for additional viewing pleasure.    

Also on the main floor, to the right of the main entrance, is this exceptional living space which is currently being used as an office.  A large bay window provides both warmth and pleasant views, while floor to ceiling built in bookcases invite displays of books, collectibles and cherished art works.  

Just off the living room is this spacious formal dining room.  With more than enough room for a large formal dining table and accompanying chairs, it can easily accommodate a sideboard for serving meals and for storage of favorite china and glassware.  

An additional asset for this room is the appealing view balcony located  immediately adjacent to the dining area.  Guests and residents can easily slip outside for a pre or post dinner moment to enjoy the view of soothing trees and gardens that surround the home. 

Close by, and just off the kitchen, is this delightful breakfast nook that is designed to capture the delight of the warm sun through its many windows.  Complete with a glass topped china cabinet, it is a special treat.  

Additionally, looking down, it can be seen that this home is ideal for those who want to host events, and who especially enjoy outdoor entertaining.  Here, one can see the two levels of deck areas that are available for relaxing with  friends, or for a private retreat when desired.  

The kitchen offers this very efficient workspace for the home chef.  Counterspace for food preparation is available at multiple locations, as are numerous multi level pull out drawers for storing favorite cooking and serving pieces.  The central island easily doubles as a serving surface when preferred.  

Amenities include a gas range cooktop, dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave.  

There are four bedrooms in the residence.  Two will be shown for your consideration.  The first, seen here, is the impressively sized primary bedroom which can easily accommodate additional furniture pieces. 

Possibilities could include a set of soft chairs, paired nightstands, a personal desk, or small sofa to add to the charm.  

Just through an open door off the primary bedroom is this very special personal balcony and retreat.  

A second, of three bedrooms on the top floor, is this pleasant room that provides ample view window space, and effectively continues the theme to the upstairs floors of the off white walls and softly colored hardwood floors.  

This finished basement space has been imaginatively created to serve as a bonus or family room.  It has all that one could desire for such a space--lots of square footage, expansive window space, and built in storage.   

If this exceptional multi-level home is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  The residence is being offered for sale for $1,995,000.
