This home, with its tranquil setting, sits back from the street, and offers a pleasant solitude among the sheltering trees and greenery that surround it. 

Perfectly located at 76 La Salle Avenue in Piedmont, it offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in a generous 2176 sf of living space. 

This location allows easy access to downtown Piedmont, with its outstanding schools, and nearby parks and recreation.  Montclair is minutes away, as is Park Street, which permits easy access to Highways 13 and 580.    

As guests arrive at this gracious home, they are greeted by a beautifully conceived front patio that is perfect for both entertaining and relaxation.  

The living room is aglow from the light that streams in through the far right wall of floor to ceiling picture windows. 

There is also a softness from this effect that is created by the combination of the beige overhead open beamed ceiling, the subtle off white walls, and the richly colored hardwood floors.  

The far left wall offers a marvelous fireplace that invites an evening's fireside conversation with friends, or a quiet personal moment by its warmth, with a good book.  

A slightly different perspective illustrates the ease by which one can move easily from the front room to the spacious outside patio.

  The door to the right side opens directly onto that space-an ideal arrangement when hosting special events, parties, and luncheons.   

Should one want to entertain more formally, this centrally placed, and generously sized, dining room awaits.  It can easily accommodate a formal table and six chairs. 

 A built in floor to ceiling china cabinet is a perfect location for displaying favorite dishes, glassware, china, and serving pieces.  

For ease of service, the kitchen is just steps away through the door to the far right, or through the upper passageway to the left.  

This luminous kitchen is ideal workplace for the home chef.  Long, stone counters to the left offer marvelous work space, and the more than ample cabinetry below can store favorite serving and preparation pieces with ease.  

A special feature is the charming breakfast room at the far end of kitchen.  Surrounded by windows with views to outside greenery, it is perfect spot for a leisurely luncheon, a late breakfast, or a mid-morning coffee.  

The kitchen has been updated, and includes a pantry, a dishwasher, an electric range, self cleaning oven, and refrigerator.  

An additional feature that adds yet more charm to the kitchen, is this very desirable serving counter, that can double as a bar or sideboard when hosting friends in the adjacent family room.  

This family room is immediately inviting.  From its glowing overhead skylight, to its handsome brick fireplace and floor to ceiling display and storage cabinet, it is a delight. 

All of the home's three bedrooms are located on the second floor.  The primary bedroom, seen here, is very comfortably sized, and is centered around three large picture windows that capture the exterior light.   

The room easily accommodates a pair of nightstands, a roomy dresser, and an inviting side chair.  It has a pair of sliding doors that open to a large closet, and just outside the entry to the room is an entire wall of closet space for additional family use.  

A second bedroom is equally spacious, and is enhanced even more with a set of four view windows.  

This third bedroom has a few architectural amenities that add to its appeal.  The first is a skylight overhead that admits soothing sunlight, and the second is the presence of a distinctive wooden slat wall around the room.  

There are two bathrooms in the residence.  The larger of the two is seen here, gleaming in the sunlight. 

An extra added amenity is this inviting bonus space, with a door to the garden, that is being used now as an office, but could serve other purposes, if needed-perhaps an art studio or music room.    

This gated entry to the property reveals the size of the home's covered garage, and the desirable additional off street parking space in front of it.  

This view illustrates just how comfortably this home is settled in among the trees and gardens that surround it.  What a delight to experience this serenity.  

If you would like to make this your new home, I urge you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,850,000.
