This handsome garden, with lots of curb appeal, welcomes all to this delightful mid-century designed home at 77 Dudley Avenue in Piedmont.   Well located, this unique charmer offers 4 bedrooms, and 3 1/2 bathrooms in a very spacious 3498 +/- sf of living space.  


The handsome blue front door opens onto a spacious entryway and irresistible interior.  


Three of the central characteristics of mid-century design are open space, simplicity, and large glass windows throughout the home.  This living room certainly epitomizes these concepts.  The defining curved bay windows are impressive, as are the wall spaces that invite appealing art works.  

There is an investment in quality here, as can be seen by the rich and appealing wood trim that is made a part of the windows, doorways, and most especially, the very dramatic central fireplace.  The fireplace surround is particularly imaginative, and the mantel is an ideal spot for displaying collectibles or favored art pieces.

For many, a formal dining room is a must, and this room is particularly attractive.  The warm wooden hardwood floors, and almost floor to ceiling windows that look out to greenery, are just two of its assets.  Whether you are entertaining friends for a special meal, or perhaps offering a gracious luncheon, this is an excellent choice.  


Just steps from the dining room is this stunningly upgraded kitchen that is awash in light from so many sources.  Note the dramatically peaked ceiling and skylights that are paired with the huge glass doors that create this ambiance.  


Yet another angle of the kitchen shows the doors that open outside to the patio--a perfect format for entertaining friends, or just relaxing at the end of a busy day.  For a quick bite, a breakfast bar awaits.  

This cheerful kitchen features a stone counter, gas range cooktop, a built in oven, and an amazing assortment of cabinets and storage spots that can accommodate your best china, glassware, and favorite cooking tools.   Be sure to note the spacious window bench to the right which is perfect for chatting with the cook during meal preparation.  

Just off the kitchen is this cozy little nook which is being used as a family or sitting room. It has, however, a great deal of flexibility in its floorplan, and could have other uses.  

There are four bedrooms in the home, three of which will be shown here for your consideration.  This sparkling bedroom with its simple design, and window views to the gardens, is open to whatever decor pleases you.   

 A spacious second bedroom with its imaginative window and lighting treatment, is complimented with warm, gently toned wooden floors .

There is no doubt that this bedroom, and its accompanying space, is an outstanding living plan.  The bedroom is generous, and the space is flexible enough to be a family room, and office, a rumpus room, or a library. 


 It is hard to deny the exceptional appeal of this pristine patio and backyard with its spacious design that encourages outdoor dining and entertaining.  If a quiet retreat is desired, the warmth and privacy of the trees and established garden greenery is available.  

If this handsome home, priced at $2,795,000, appeals to you, I would encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280 with your interest and questions.
