Sweeping Bay Views!
Enjoy sweeping, 3-bridge views from this sharp Montclair contemporary home with an open floor plan and level out access to outdoor living. Located minutes to shopping, restaurants, Highway 13, and hiking trails, this home has the added bonus of an elevator in the level-in garage which services all floor levels.
Street Level – There is level-in access to a 2-car garage, with a charming view window and an elevator the accesses all levels. The alternative entrance is down a few steps to a sunny, level patio with tiered landscaping which leads to the front door.
Main Level - the elegant entry hall opens to a grand sized, sunken living room with hardwood floors, a stone fireplace and spectacular, front and center, sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Mount Tamalpais, San Francisco Bay & City, the East Bay bridge and Downtown Oakland. Sliding glass doors open to a full-length view deck for desirable California style indoor/outdoor living. The open floor plan with soaring, beamed ceilings has a spacious, dining area and a well-designed kitchen with impressive cherry wood cabinetry, Ubatuba granite countertops, generous counter space, a Thermador gas range and convection oven, a Bosch dishwasher and eat-in island. There are two spacious, sunny bedrooms, a full, tiled bathroom and elevator access on this floor.

The spacious master suite has plenty closet space with cedar flooring and a full-sized bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and a separate stall shower. Use the grand sized rumpus room as a home office or entertainment center. The rumpus room may also be converted back to a fourth bedroom. There is a spacious laundry room and elevator access at this level.

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 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.
