This handsome home at 94 Dudley Avenue in Piedmont, represents all that is desirable and popular in a mid-century modern home.  As we tour the home, you will see why this is such a pleasing design concept.  Offering 5 bedrooms and 3 baths, it is a truly warm and unique house. The first two views illustrate the first goal of the home's conceptual design--expansive windows, and sliding glass doors that are specifically design to allow the light to flow into the room from every angle.  The dramatic wooden beamed ceiling facilitates this concept, and views from the outside abound-which is, in fact, the second architectural element of the design, and is seen in just about every room in the house.  Be sure to note the spacious fireplace for cozy evenings at home.


The classic open floor plan features a gracious dining area that would be equally suitable for formal dining or a casual lunchtime meal.  The open doorway to the right leads outside to a comfortable deck area should you want to entertain outside among the trees.  The second view, from a slightly different angle, gives you a better look at the outside space that is available.  Also noteworthy are the warmly colored hardwood floors.  

 A turn to the right takes you directly in the heart of any home-the kitchen.  Couple this cozy kitchen with a cheerful family room, huge view windows to the outside, and a desirable skylight that brings in light from above, and you have the perfect place to spend hours of relaxation and fun.  

 When its time for perhaps a quick breakfast or lunch, this delightful breakfast bar steps up to serve those needs.  

This ideally placed kitchen has plenty of work space, lots of storage, and a warm, mellow ambiance.  

There is an extremely generous lower level which is equally imaginative and flexible as to its use. Presently being used as a large family/recreation room, it has a huge built in cabinets and storage space at one end, which could lend itself to a possible office nook or library.  

Be sure to note the two different deck areas outside the sliding glass doors that are just ideal for a pleasant afternoon luncheon or tea.  To the right, you see the seating for a well planned kitchenette that would be ideal for group or guest entertaining.  

 The built in, and well appointed, kitchenette area adds to the flexibility of uses for the whole lower level-whether indoor or outside.


There are five bedrooms, two of which are shown here for your review and consideration.  All have wide and cheerful window space, plentiful lighting, and hardwood floors.  Views to the outside gardens and greenery complete the pleasant ambiance that is offered.

Stepping to the outside, and rear garden area of the home, the two decks that are immediately off the lower level show the charm that both offer.  The rear stairs go up to the kitchen area.  

 Moving to the exterior area at the main level of the home, you can see the roomy deck area that overlooks the pleasant and expansive rear garden. 

The view below reflects all the many levels of interest in the home--the two deck areas, the huge expanse of windows, and the very generous and well-planned garden area, which has yet one more area of rest and relaxation awaiting you, as seen in the view below.

As with most Piedmont homes, this remarkable choice is just moments from the popular restaurants, stores and shops of Montclair and Rockridge via nearby Highway 13.  Additionally available via this highway is Oakland downtown, connection to San Francisco, and just over the hill to the east, the cities of Orinda and Lafayette.  The home is @2838 sf in size, and the asking price is $1,695,000.

As a resident, I am very familiar with all of the homes in Piedmont, and welcome the opportunity to show you the wide variety of choices.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280 should you have any questions or interests.
