This light filled contemporary home at 60 Somerset Road in Piedmont, is centered among pleasing gardens, trees, and colorful plants, while additionally featuring an outstanding Bay view.  It offers a total of 5 bedrooms, and 3 baths, in a very spacious 3215 +/-sf of space.  

Everything about this home is inviting.  The spacious windows reveal soothing views of the well established, and relaxing gardens.  The recessed lighting and warmly colored floors add yet another element of calm.  What better source of relaxation than a handsome fireplace ideally placed between the living and dining rooms to add warmth on a chilly evening? 

There is ample space for entertaining here, as well.  Whether you want to have a small group of friends seated around the living room, or a more formal meal for a larger group, there is generous space to do either. 

 One of the highlights of this home is its impressive view deck that is located just off the living room.  The whole design of the home allows easy flow from one room to another and as a result, amazing flexibility of use.  

This kitchen is perfectly designed for the fussiest of cooks.  Note the spacious gas range and cooktop, a built in oven, roomy stone counters, and plentiful counter space.  A neatly placed breakfast nook awaits those who want a simple breakfast, or a very casual lunch.  

 Just off the kitchen, in the opposite direction, and equally well thought out, is the cozy family room.  Perfect for an evening with pizza, video games or television viewing, it it particularly engaging.    


The two views above reinforce the imaginative design of the residence that consistently takes advantage of the home's setting to invite the outside views and gardens views inside, whether through walls of glass windows and doors.  

 There are 5 bedrooms in the home.  Three are being shown here for your consideration.  The first, above, is the master bedroom, which, true to form, is spacious, and has a large sliding glass door that leads to the inviting outside patio.  

Just steps away is this stylish master bathroom with excellent counter space and a roomy shower.  

 Close by are two additional bedrooms with their own bathroom, that carry on the theme of light, calm, and privacy that is evident in many areas of the house.  Something special to note, is that there are 5 bedrooms total, and one additional unfinished room below.  With this much variety in room space and location, some of these rooms could easily be converted into an office, study, library, or arts and crafts room.  

A good portion of the lower level space has been converted into recreation and entertainment space.  This delightful built-in bar and surrounding floor space is ideal for parties and celebrations. NOTE: Be sure to see the attached floor at the completion of this picture presentation to give you an idea of the flexibility that is available. 

 Just outside the sliding glass doors from the entertainment room is a comfortable, and a very inviting hot tub.  Its hard to deny its appeal, and is always in demand.  

 On warm, pleasant days, there are plenty of spots to sit outside in the quiet of the patio, where you could read, sip tea, listen to the birds, or just chat with friends 

If there was one view that tops off the allure of the home, it has to be this one above.  With a irresistible view of the Bay area, and this dazzling way to view it, the appeal is obvious. 

This handsome home is just minutes from the desirable shops and restaurants of Montclair, and close to those at Grand Lake and Rockridge.  Downtown Piedmont, and the various sports fields are equally close.  This home is being offered for sale for $1,895,000.   I encourage you to call me promptly with your questions and interest at (510) 517-6280.  I look forward to working with you.
