This classically styled Craftsman brown shingle home is located at 1006 Rose Avenue in Piedmont.  With its handsome shade tree, and its soft grey exterior with bright white trim, it has immediate curb appeal.  

It offers 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in a generous 2606 sf+/- of living space.   Perfectly located close to downtown Piedmont, and the shops and dining attractions of Montclair, Rockridge and Grand Lake, it also offers rapid access to Berkeley, Oakland, and Contra Costa cities via Highway 13, just up the hill.

A handsome covered front porch with surrounding view windows welcomes guests to the residence.  A spacious entryway, and large glass entry door adds yet more appeal.  

The living room represents much of the concept of the classical Craftsman style home.  With the original design theme of simplicity and use of natural materials, the Craftsman focus is on the distinctive wooden trim around doors, windows, and room entries, that combine beautifully with the off white ceilings and walls.  

The fireplace is often unique, and, true to form, this one features a decorative brick surround with a very appealing mantel, and space for a mirror or artwork.  

Decorative references to nature are seen in most Craftsman homes,  and displayed here in the floral theme of the  matching stained glass windows on either side of the fireplace. 

Just off the living room is a very handsome dining room that is perfectly suited for formal entertaining, when preferred, but can just as easily suit a casual luncheon.  

The expansive wooden trim around windows, doors and floors and ceiling illustrate the quality of workmanship seen throughout this house.  The  recessed ceilings, combined with the classical Craftsman built in glass display cabinet and server, makes this room exceptional.     

Just off the dining room, and through a set of French doors, is this very pleasant bonus room, with built in bookcases and cabinets, and flexibility of use. 

A different angle reveals the large windows that open to the trees outside, and the storage and closet space.  

The kitchen has generous workspace, red tile counters, a dishwasher, refrigerator, a microwave, and a gas range cooktop.  Two large windows over the sink provide both sunlight and cheer.  

Perfectly placed adjacent to the kitchen is this eat in dining area that is perfect for casual breakfasts or lunches.  Just outside the three glass doors is a delightful deck that awaits parties and luncheons.  

The inviting deck space has  two levels for relaxation.  The first, seen here, is especially pleasant--a perfect retreat when desired, or a central serving site for food and dining when entertaining.  The lower level step down has additional seating, and an old fashioned tree swing.  

There are 4 bedrooms in the home.  Two will be shown for your consideration.  The first, above,  is comfortably sized, has richly colored hardwood floors, and displays the distinctive wooden trim seen throughout the house around the windows, doorways and ceilings. 

  Just off the bedroom above is this sitting room/sun porch that opens to the outside deck, and a treeside seating space. 

Upstairs is this large bedroom suite that perfectly combines living and sleeping space.  

A reverse perspective reveals the size of the room, its open beam ceiling,  its many view windows,  and the multi-paned door that leads to the private outside viewing balcony.  

What a pleasure to be able to enjoy this very special view of the lush gardens and greenery that surround the home.  

Just below the balcony is this unique double porch that leads to the spacious, and well cared for, green lawn that is surrounded by long established trees and plants. 

If this very comfortable and distinctive home is of interest to you, please call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  The residence is being offered for sale for $2,150,000.
