Enjoy everything Piedmont has to offer from this classic 1918 traditional home in the most central of all locations! Just steps to 13 years of top public schools, gorgeous parks, transportation and our hometown favorite market, Mulberry’s, this home has it all!
Enter into the foyer and to your left is the inviting formal living room with a focal fireplace surrounded by built-ins, high ceilings and beautiful period mouldings. Large picture windows allow the morning sunshine and natural light to flow right in. There is also an office/den plus a powder room off the foyer. To your right from the entry is the great room with a beautifully updated kitchen and dining room space. This area could easily be used as a kitchen/ family room combo depending on a family's needs. The gourmet kitchen features all new high end appliances and expansive counter space. While the open dining room features a built-in mirrored buffet original to the home. The combination of the two styles creates an exciting space for family and friends to gather. The kitchen also opens out to a deck, perfect for a barbeque and dining table. The spacious yard has a huge grass lawn, oversized raised bed for urban farming and a sweet rose garden.
All of the homes' 4+ bedrooms are located upstairs with two bathrooms. This includes the large master suite that has a walk in closet. There is a bonus space upstairs that could work as a second office or nursery or play a part in a future master suite expansion. The three other big bedrooms, two of which have city views, all share the hall bathroom.
The laundry was previously located off the kitchen but could easily assume a position on either the upper or lower floor. Accessed from a stairwell off the kitchen, there is semi-finished space with windows below. There is also a work room with the utilities, work bench and storage area. A two car detached garage sits on the corner of the property.. maybe a future ADU?
This family home enjoys grand street presence and offers gracious ease of living!
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.
