Dramatic Montclair Hills Retreat Home
Welcome to this wonderful 4-bedroom/3-bath home tucked away in the wooded Montclair hills featuring spectacular canyon views of the surrounding Oakland hills. The design aesthetics of the dramatic angled roofline, prominent front trellis embellishments and tall living/dining room front windows combine to create the classic profile of this c.1966 home, which has been updated with many modern conveniences. Approaching the property sited above the street, the outside front has been landscaped with lighting, drip irrigation and a large front exterior deck that is great for entertaining and relaxing. The entry level provides a versatile floor plan with a spacious family room designed with media built-ins including ceiling speakers, a spacious bedroom/home office with full bath and a laundry room. Up the stairs bordered with striking glass panels that open to the main living area. This level has an expansive open wrap-around floor plan with dramatic beamed tall ceilings and picture windows looking out towards the breathtaking hill and canyon views and stunning hardwood floors. The living room has high-end finished built-ins on either side of the fireplace as part of a media center pre-wired with HDMI/speaker hookups and a separate media closet with built-in speakers along with custom plantation shutters and recessed ceiling lighting. The adjacent dining room opens via slider doors onto a sheltered deck and is open into the large Chef's kitchen fitted with stainless steel GE profile appliances, stone countertops, and abundant workspace and storage. The next level up leads to the master bedroom retreat with a pre-wired media setup and built-in speakers, an updated luxurious bath with a custom-fitted Elfa closet system. There are two additional bedrooms - one with Pella sliding doors providing access to the back area – and another updated full bath on this level. The whole house fan provides wonderful cooling circulation. The upslope back area is unfinished palette waiting for your creative landscaping ideas. Minutes to Montclair Village known for its diverse shopping and dining options, vibrant Sunday Farmers market, desirable schools with close proximity to the East Bay Regional Parks, convenient freeway and public transportation options to nearby downtown Oakland and San Francisco.
Tucked away in the wooded hills and winding streets above Oakland, Montclair is a small community with an appealing central shopping district. Sizable custom homes, along with a mix of Mediterranean, Craftsman, and contemporary-style homes are situated on forested lots, offering an elegant retreat from the city. The Montclair Business District is a throwback to a simpler time before strip malls, megamalls, and big-box stores. Residents can find everything they need, from dry cleaning and groceries to restaurants and great (CruFit) fitness options. Local restaurant favorites include the Montclair Egg Shop, Daughter Thai Kitchen, Perle Wine Bar and Crogan’s Montclair Restaurant. Gourmet specialty items are available at Le Bonbon, and Farmstead Wine and Cheese. A farmers market on Sundays provides fresh local produce and baked goods. Montclair is home to fine-arts festivals throughout the year and a jazz festival in the late summer that enlivens the street scene.
