High in the hills above Oakland is this gracious home that offers an ideal location, and soothing hillside views. Situated at 2824 Burton Drive in the Piedmont Pines neighborhood, it is just moments from Montclair Village, and the many hiking and biking trails of nearby regional parks.
It offers 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms in a spacious 2632 sf of living space.
The living room is immediately impressive. A dramatic open beam peaked ceiling rises high above, and, in combination with the wall of windows to the right, contributes to the glowing ambiance of this space. The crisply designed central fireplace will no doubt be the site of many a pleasant evening get together.
This entire living space, with its impressive expanse, invites entertaining, parties, and special events. Guests and residents can move easily from one area to another, and slip out the door to a balcony with views of the hillside scenes below.
A reverse view reveals the dining area which can easily accommodate a formal sit down dinner, or a relaxing afternoon luncheon.
As would be expected in a home of this quality, the kitchen is well conceived, and a perfect place for an imaginative home chef. Just off the dining room, it is expansive in size, and well lit, with generous overhead supplemental lighting.
Storage is a breeze for both formal and casual china, glassware, and serving pieces, with the effective placement of cabinets at every level.
A site for a pleasant eat in kitchen table and chairs is easily established, with additional room for a large adjacent storage table.
Amenities that should please include a dishwasher, free standing range oven, and refrigerator.
Just off the kitchen, and perfectly located, is the home's outside deck area seen below.
This captivating deck space, with its richly colored wooden deck, and surrounding sheltering trees, is a spot that will always see a rich and varied use.
A large studio space, painted in cheerful blue colors, offers additional living space and flexible use.
A reverse perspective reveals the versatile studio space that is available. It offers numerous potential uses. An office, art studio, music room, or workout room could be options to consider.
Returning to the home, there are four bedrooms, three of which will be shown for your consideration. The first, seen above, is the large primary bedroom. With a more than generous room for a large bed and supplemental nightstands, it still has space for additional enhancements, if desired.
Just ahead, and steps away, is the luminous primary bathroom, as seen below.
A delightful tiled tub with jets, is the anchor of the primary bathroom. Also included, and seen above, is a large, and well lit, twin mirror vanity sink with plentiful storage.
Always in demand, and just off the primary bedroom, is this very expansive walk in closet that should easily meet one's special closet needs, and more.
A second bedroom, complete with a sliding glass widow that opens to the surrounding greenery, continues the design theme of softly colored walls and carpeting-a relaxing choice for a bedroom space.
There is a third floor to the home, a portion of which, seen here, is ideally suited to a family room, given its size and flexibility. A set of doors leads outside to a balcony, stairs, and pleasant views.
Just off the family room is this handsomely upgraded bathroom with subtle off white and grey colors that make it particularly attractive. A wide mirror over the sink reflects the subtle sunlight entering the room.
This imaginative third floor bedroom is cleverly adapted to the peaked ceiling construction, and features two creative, yet practical, windows to the exterior.
One of many reasons that living in Montclair is so valued, is its vast expanse of trees that evoke the quiet and subtlety of Tahoe living, and is seen just outside this house.
If you have an interest in this, or another Montclair area home, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280. This residence is being offered for sale for $1,295,000.
