LAYERS OF DELIGHTS
A handsome exterior with lovely landscaping and a substantial circular drive. A light-filled living room with French doors leading out to a balcony, and a view of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge beyond. African walnut floors throughout. A customized dining room with corner windows and built-in cabinets and shelving, perfect for entertaining friends or family. A gourmet kitchen has a Viking range and pasta faucet, custom cabinetry, a Miele dishwasher, a separate bar sink and copper fixtures. A breakfast nook with a window seat is on one end and a corner desk for a small office is on the other. That's only the beginning.
Down the hall, a full bath and two bedrooms, both with abundant light and views of nature. The master suite has a gorgeous bathroom with green onyx marble for the counters and the window seat. A wonderful sitting room off the bedroom leads to the balcony. Two large closets to keep both of you happy, and the twinkling lights of the city below can be appreciated while lounging in bed.
But wait, there's more!
Downstairs has another large bedroom with a massive closet, a wet bar/kitchen and large family room, anchored with a fireplace insert surrounded by beautiful tiles and one wall lined with built-in shelving. French doors lead out to the bricked patio, tastefully landscaped. A sauna and full bath sit beyond the kitchen, along with laundry facilities and a mudroom.
Like one of those dreams where you discover a whole other wing to your home, is another apartment altogether, with a full bath, small, well organized kitchen, views and lots of light. With its own independent entry, it's a perfect in-law unit.
As if that weren't enough, from the brick patio, stone steps lead up to a wisteria-shaded hot tub with a spectacular view, and a gurgling waterfall below the majestic redwood tree provides a calming soundtrack for your soak.
The location offers even more delights: down the road are great elementary and middle schools, Montclair Village beckons nearby with its shopping and restaurants, and above are hundreds of acres of wooded parkland with miles of trails and picnic grounds, making it a fantastic combination of urban and rural living. Easy access to the freeway makes for a happier commute, while the occasional grazing deer is an enchanting reminder of the beauty of the hills.
This home has so many charms to discover. Prepare to be captivated.
