CENTRAL PIEDMONT CRAFTSMAN
Nestled on a picture-perfect street in the center of town is this pristine Craftsman that has been updated for contemporary living while retaining the charm of a bygone era. Classic woodwork and designer finishes adorn the sun-drenched spaces that open to showstopping manicured level grounds offering exceptional outdoor living. With four of the five bedrooms on one level, a spacious lower-level guest suite and several work-from-home spaces, this is the forever home you have been waiting for.
From the tree-lined street, the brick walkway leaves you at the covered front porch, the perfect spot for an easy chair to watch the day go by. To the right of the impressive foyer is the dining room with window seat where one can imagine a romantic dinner in front of the fireplace or a festive holiday feast with relatives in tow. To the left is the living room with a second fireplace flanked by built-ins. French doors open to a spacious deck with its peek of the Bay and plenty of room for lounging, al fresco dining and stargazing. A main floor den or office also opens to the deck and is perfect for working from home or overnight guests.
Completing the main level is a powder room, mud room to remove those rainy-day clothes and modern chef’s kitchen complete with marble countertops, a 42” Subzero French door refrigerator with cabinet front, two Miele ovens, induction cooktop and built-in seating for casual dining.
Upstairs are four bedrooms and two baths including a primary suite with San Francisco and Bay bridge views, dressing room and approved plans to expand the picture window to capture more of the scenic vistas. Completing this level is a bonus room, perfect for an office or study space.
The recently renovated lower level features a large family room complete with entertainment center and sliding doors out to the backyard. A small refrigerator and bar sink are convenient for sleepover parties or outdoor entertaining. The fifth bedroom with access to the updated bath, laundry room, workshop and storage space complete this level.
The expansive rear grounds are conveniently accessed from the main and lower levels and offer something for everyone. A large, covered patio with pull down shades will keep hot weather from spoiling your outdoor event. The manicured level lawn is perfect for a game of catch or, for something more competitive, the adjacent sports court with basketball net will set the stage for endless rivalries to come. Several varieties of citrus and roses will grace your tables and offer sweet scents and flavors throughout the growing season. The storage shed provides storage for your outdoor equipment.
It's easy to miss the little extras like the two-zone air conditioning, extra storage on the upper terrace and car-charging station along the driveway… all the signs that this special residence has been nurtured through the years. And when you are ready to venture out, all the fine services Piedmont has to offer including top schools, tennis courts, parks, public pool and Mulberry’s Market are just a few short blocks away.
