Built in 1952, this mid-century modern home is the epitome of easy, open California living. The inviting level entry opens to soaring ceilings and walls of glass. Anchored by a tall brick fireplace at one end of the living area, the space expands to include the dining area and moves on to the large open kitchen, breakfast area and laundry room. French doors from the living room, the kitchen and family area, make for truly outstanding indoor/outdoor living. The patio’s three adjoining conversation areas and mature plantings, makes for a private, natural extension of the home. Also located on this main floor is the updated primary suite with walk-in closet and expanded bath with soaking tub and double sinks. An additional bedroom and full bath complete the main floor.
An open stairwell near the entry leads down to the family space. This cozy room has a large fireplace and outdoor access to the lower-level yard. On this lower level, there are also two additional bedrooms sharing a hallway bath and a spacious basement area providing ample storage.
The two-car garage is detached and offers a back door exit to bring you directly to the patio on the main level. The expansive garden features a large vegetable garden, a great big lawn for playing, many opportunities for al fresco dining, large scale entertaining and children’s play. There is still a large amount of the property yet to be developed, with endless opportunities!
Piedmont residents enjoy access to thirteen years of top-rated public education plus city-maintained fire and police service. The small welcoming community is a wonderful place to call home!
Piedmont, a two-square-mile city within the borders of Oakland, was incorporated in 1907 and was known then as “The City of Millionaires” because there were more millionaires per square mile residing there than in any other U.S. city. Today, their large, estate-like homes are still standing in the heart of Piedmont, reminding residents of its glitzy past. Homes in Piedmont range from those estate-like homes in central Piedmont with expansive grounds to more modest homes on the edges of town. Well-manicured landscapes prevail and the city’s stringent permitting guidelines ensure all of the homes maintain their original flavor.
The commercial area of the town is small, featuring several banks and one gas station. Mulberry’s Market, a specialty food store with ready-made meals, caters to gourmet taste buds and is the frequent morning coffee stop for parents and an after-school hot spot for kids. Piedmont’s proximity to Oakland’s many big-city amenities ensures Piedmonters will not miss out on the latest restaurants or first-run movies, and its several well-maintained parks and playing fields provide ample opportunity for sports year-round.
The sense of community is strong, as witnessed by the large turnout for the annual Fourth of July parade that happens each year down Highland Avenue.The Piedmont Recreation Center offers a central gathering place for residents. Available for rental, it is a frequent setting for community events and parties.The beautiful grounds provide a wonderful place to hang out and play, and the wooded trail connecting the Center to the high school is the best place to take your dog to play.
A casual carpool zone on Oakland Avenue, along with proximity to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District buses, offer workers convenient commute options.
Pride in community involvement, coveted K-12 public schools, movie-nights in the park, village-living surrounded by a diverse and thriving metropolis, easy access to downtown Oakland or San Francisco, and a throwback to a time when kids could ride bikes and joyfully walk with friends to the park, are just a few of the reasons people love to live in Piedmont.
