Bursting with character, this very special Piedmont home is nestled perfectly on a corner lot in a friendly woodsy cul-de-sac neighborhood! Loved by the current owners for the last 20 years, the original details of its 1925 construction have been lovingly preserved. Plentiful windows showcase the natural surroundings, and multiple skylights bathe the main gathering areas in brilliant sun. Anchored by the beautiful, updated gas fireplace, you’ll love the sprawling living room which effortlessly flows to the ultra-charming eat-in kitchen and out to the expansive deck.
Downstairs, the primary suite has been extensively renovated with a walk-in closet and perfectly appointed spa like bath. Also on the lower level is another spacious bedroom, separate laundry room with half bath, extra storage space, and access to the attached garage, ideal for flex space.
Entertain or relax alfresco on the serene deck or the low maintenance turf patio. Sought after Wildwood Elementary and Piedmont Middle and High schools are nearby plus, you’ll be close to Davies Tennis Stadium. Lakeshore dining and shopping options are also just moments away. This retreat is indeed a rare find and the ultimate must see!
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 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 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.
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 the 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 and village living are just a few of the reasons people love to live in Piedmont.
