Impressive Piedmont Traditional with in-law unit - 80 walk score!
A dynamic roof line, diamond paned windows and gracious front porch create dramatic curb appeal drawing you in to this warm and welcoming family home.
A stunning open kitchen remodel is the focal point of the main level. High-end appliances, soapstone countertops, huge island and a sun-drenched dining area create an irresistable gathering spot for friends and family alike. Level-out access to the inviting back-yard patio and garden provides the opportunity for seamless entertaining indoor and out. Mature landscaping surrounds gently terraced lawns with ample room for kicking the soccer ball or a good game of tag! An outdoor shower is the perfect spot to clean up the kids or dogs after playing at the tot-lot or nearby dog-park. A formal dining room, warm family room with fireplace, two bedrooms, one bathroom and a powder room complete this floor. Ascend the open staircase to three finished rooms in the bonus attic space with hardwood floors, recessed lighting, skylights and endless possibilities.
A rare find, this gracious home has a hidden bonus – a legal, spacious one-bedroom unit below boasting a separate entrance, wonderful family room with cathedral ceilings, fully appointed kitchen, and all the comforts of (a second) home!
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.
