This captivating home is imaginative in design, and incorporates indoor and outdoor charm throughout every room.  It offers 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths, and is located at 68 Wyngaard Avenue in Piedmont.  It is perfectly placed just moments from Montclair, and just a short distance to the shops and restaurants of Grand Lake and Rockridge .  Commuting to Oakland and San Francisco is equally convenient.  

 Guests are welcomed immediately by this delightful patio at the entrance of the home that is made private by the well established trees and flowering plants that surround it.  What a unique spot for a relaxing afternoon lunch or formal tea. 

 Yet another view of the front patio reveals the impressive entryway that features a splendid pediment over the doorway that is supported by two graceful columns.  

The same pediment theme is carried through over the doorway, underneath which is a spacious front door centered between a matching pair of glass panels. 

It is hard to resist the drama and sweep of this impressive front room.  Light streams in from every corner of the room, and is immediately supplemented by the arched window to the left, the a virtual wall of windows to the right, and the gentle recessed lighting above.  The dramatic fireplace is an anchor to this room, and a perfect spot for entertaining guests on a cool winter evening.  Its elegant mantel furnishes a spot for displaying art, china or other collectibles.  

 Many other design elements contribute to the quality of this room, and are well worth noting as you continue throughout the house.  There is expansive wood trim on virtually every window and door, ceiling and floor edging.  Warmly colored hardwood floors are equally present.  

Just steps from the living room is this irresistible dining room area, and companion seating space that is perfect for a formal party or special event.  The floor plan is perfect in its flexibility--it can just as easily be a relaxing family room with more casual dining.  Be sure to note the glass doors leading to an outside patio area.  

Another view of the room shows its many possibilities and surprising adaptability for different uses. 

This exceedingly spacious kitchen is irresistible.  Gleaming, and full of ample workspace and plentiful floor space, it features a handsome gas/range cooktop, refrigerator and dishwasher.  The skylight over the spacious sink area is perfect, and the amount of storage space at every level is truly expansive.  In fact, there is room every conceivable cooking utensil, pot, pan or special serving dishes.  


Not every kitchen has this built in office/computer workstation.  It is a perfect addition for planning meals, designing new home plans, or just getting caught up with the daily mail.  

An additional view shows yet more storage space, a view to the dining room, and the door to the patio area that allows easy access in both directions when eating outside.   

There are four bedrooms in the home, three are being shown for your consideration.  Above is the stunning and elegant master bedroom.  It is very expansive, and has a surprisingly flexible  floor plan.  The pleasant seating area is masterfully reproduced outside the two French doors on the private balcony.  

This private patio area outside of the master bedroom is a delight.  A perfect place for a quiet moment of relaxation, or a morning cup of coffee.  On warm days, the bedroom doors can be thrown open to let the sunlight in.  

Immediately adjacent to the master bedroom is the master bathroom, featuring this handsomely tiled tub with jets, a bidet, and a stall shower.  

A second bedroom continues the concept of spaciousness, combined with an easy access to the outdoors decks, that characterizes the entire house.  

 Above, a pleasant and relaxing bedroom with a view to the outside gardens and greenery.

An extra bonus, and always a plus, is this cozy office space that is just perfect as a quiet retreat for studying, reading or work projects.  

These graceful stairs illustrate the impressive thought that has gone into every element of the design, and is seen throughout the home.
