Set peacefully in the hills just above the Montclair Village is this charming home with spectacular views on a quarter-acre lot. Manicured, colorful landscaping along the entry path sets the tone. Inside, wide plank oak floors run wall to wall on the main level. Large windows frame views of the forested hills, the majestic Golden Gate Bridge, and the Richmond Bridge to the north. Beautiful!
Main Level Living - The spacious living room features a quintessential wood-burning fireplace that casts a warm glow over effervescent conversations. With excellent flow, the space opens to the dining room, where broad sliding glass doors again reveal the vivid views. Plus, a step onto the huge deck brings fresh air, a perch over the massive backyard, and vibrant dining on a summer evening.
The updated contemporary kitchen combines rich wood cabinetry, long counters, and stainless-steel appliances, including a Viking range, making the chef of the family ecstatic. Completing the main level is a full bath and media room for fun family movie nights!
Upper Level - Original hardwood floors continue upstairs into the three large bedrooms—the primary bedroom featuring a large walk-in closet. All bedrooms take full advantage of the views with extra-wide windows—what a way to wake up! Pink sunrises illuminate the wonderful panoramic scenes. This floor is served by a contemporary bath with a large glass-enclosed walk-in shower and an oversized jacuzzi tub for warm soaks after a full day. Off the front of the home is a veranda—a private space for coffee and a good novel.
Bonus - With a private entrance is the basement au pair/in-law unit with a sink, fridge, and counter space, plus a full bath. It also accesses the lovely and rustic brick patio, enveloped by the landscaping.
Farm to Table! Flowing down the gentle slope, the huge backyard is veritable fruit farm—cherry, lemon, lime, apple, fig, three varieties of plum, and three orange trees produce a delicious bounty. Ripe zucchini, squash, peppers, and tomatoes burst off the vines. Pink roses and other flora add another splash of color. All on a drip system, it’s low-maintenance harvest and enjoy!
On top of it all, the location! Just a few minutes down the road is highly rated Montclair Elementary, Montclair park, and all of the boutiques and restaurants one could need in Montclair Village. This private home, tucked into its wonderful gardens, is a remarkable opportunity.
