Enchanting in its architectural composition and cul-de-sac setting, this storybook home intermixes updates with 1932 original allure. Three bedrooms reflect sumptuous appointments; a fireplace embellishes the master, another features a wondrous coved-ceiling extra room, ideal as private office or den. Revitalized with flair, the kitchen and both full bathrooms combine vibrant stone and tile schemes. Stone terraces outline the home, and public rooms open to them directly, creating extension-of-the-home outdoor living spaces.

Establishing period cachet, the exterior combines diamond-pane and dormer windows, a steeply pitched roof, and flagstone path to an accentuated entry. Original architectural facets also infuse the interior with enduring appeal: pristinely polished hardwood flooring, wood trim, and expansive divided-light windows and glass doors throughout. The living room further showcases a wood-paneled beamed ceiling, stone-clad fireplace and inset display shelves. From formal living and dining rooms, views of manicured gardenscapes present flourishing backdrops, and glass doors connect directly.

In the classically styled contemporary kitchen, matte black stone countertops meet rich-cream subway-tile backsplashes, a timeless pairing. Well laid out for eat-in enjoyment and entertaining, the breakfast alcove offers a terrace outlook and directly opens to it, while the butler’s pantry offers extensive storage and additional prep areas. Stainless appliances correspond to sleek cabinet hardware, with the kitchen’s refined custom cabinetry reiterated in the butler’s pantry.

In a versatile layout, one bedroom occupies the main floor. With a full bathroom nearby, it is well suited to bedroom purposes and equally well as family room. Upstairs, an especially large bathroom incorporating both a shower and tub serves two bedrooms. In the master haven, windowed alcoves frame leafy views, a fireplace generates warm ambiance, and a walk-in dressing room/closet is augmented by three additional closets. Extending from the other second-floor bedroom, the bonus room offers myriad options.

Sited on a quaint and quiet cul-de-sac, the home enjoys insulation from a verdant hillside that outlines and shelters the property. Level in front and for a good stretch in back, the property integrates a terraced garden, through which stone steps ascend to an upper-level terrace nestled amid the treed hillside. Dovetailing with flagstone terraces, a stone driveway adjoins the attached two-car garage containing an electric-car charger.



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.
