Imagine having a view like this out of virtually every room in this home at 308 Pacific Avenue in Piedmont. This outstanding residence was built with this goal in mind. Perfectly located on a hill in central Piedmont, it offers a spacious 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths in 3082+/- sf of living space.
This gleaming living room provides so many outstanding first impressions. First and foremost, of course, is the sweeping view of the Bay area just outside the central and adjacent window. The view is enhanced as the hours of the day change, and light and darkness affect it.
Not to be overlooked is the living room itself. So many subtle, yet desirable amenities are featured. As with homes of this era and quality, the rich wooden trim around the walls, windows and doors are a delight. Most impressive is the delicate design of the moulding around the ceiling. Completing the effect is the spacious central fireplace with graceful trim on the top and on either side.
Immediately adjacent to the living room is this very spacious dining room that continues the living room themes of view, desirable woodworking, and impressive Bay area views. What a exceptional spot for entertaining friends.
Just off the dining room, and a perfect source for serving outstanding meals, is this cheerful kitchen. With its under window work space, and multiple levels of storage for dishes, glassware and serving pieces, it provides the chef with and electric range/cooktop, built in oven, dishwasher and refrigerator.
For a more relaxed and casual morning breakfast or evening snack, this cozy view dinette area is just off the kitchen, and provides a perfect opportunity to enjoy a quiet moment and perhaps enjoy the sunset.
Also adjacent to the kitchen is this spot which is just perfect for an office. With its large picture window, and views to the outside garden, it is an excellent space for its current use. However, if not needed as an office, it could easily be converted into a study or craft area.
There are four bedrooms in the home. Three are being shown for your consideration. This very spacious bedroom shown above has a huge picture window with additional windows that open to the outside Bay area panorama.
For those who would like a complete panoramic view, this bedroom would have to be their choice. If not currently needed as a bedroom, this room would be an outstanding choice for a private office or study.
And yet another charming bedroom with a view. Even though a bit smaller, it still has the same exceptional construction elements of quality wooden trim on doors, windows and baseboard that is seen throughout the residence.
This home was designed for entertaining. This dramatic lower level rumpus room makes that abundantly clear. With plentiful space for seating and a central serving space, it is complimented by the stunning outside porch that makes a relaxing evening sunset meal a true joy. The bookcases along the far wall add more charm, and are an ideal place for displaying books, art, glassware or collectibles designed to please the eye of residents and guests.
Stepping outside, it is hard to imagine a more resort-like atmosphere. High above the gardens and trees around you, views and charm abound. An ideal location for an afternoon buffet or tea, it is equally adaptable for a formal evening meal for guests.
Down below the deck is this well established backyard with plenty of green space for a gardener to enjoy.
