Stylish Contemp

This home is an alluring mix of everything that makes California and the East Bay a wonderful place to live. This light-filled Montclair contemporary is a short distance above Mountain Boulevard, yet perched gently upslope with green vistas and a peek of the Bay. Privacy abounds and the level out access to the garden provides seamless indoor-outdoor living. Din­ing and entertaining on the private patio surrounded by the lush garden is delightful. The front and side gardens provide another opportunity to enjoy the fruit trees, flowers, hummingbirds and butterflies.

This wonderful home has three bedrooms and two baths inclusive of a spacious and private master suite. The main floor has an expansive living room with cathedral ceiling and a fireplace. The stylish double-sided fireplace separates the living and dining room, the heart of the home. The eat-in kitchen has an enchanting alcove that offers outlooks to the garden and truly brings the outdoors in.

Nearby proximity to Thornhill Elementary and quick access to both public transit and highways to downtown Oakland and San Francisco are among the amenities of this Montclair location. A short distance in to the Village takes you to a Farmers Market on weekends, shops and restaurants.

The Village


Montclair

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. Local restaurant favorites include the Montclair Egg Shop, Flipper’s Gourmet Burgers, and Crogan’s Montclair Restaurant. Gourmet specialty items are available at A.G. Ferrari, 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.
