PIEDMONT PINES MID-CENTURY RETREAT
Escape the hustle and bustle of urban life to this private sanctuary where you can wake to the soothing sounds of birds and the sweet smell of spring, while only minutes from the shops and dining at the Montclair Village or the hiking trails at the Redwood Regional parks. With seamless indoor/outdoor living from an open floorplan to 1/3 acre of fenced and manicured mostly level grounds, this Piedmont Pines mid-century will be a favorite of friends and family for memorable parties and after-school play dates. Enjoy vaulted exposed wood ceilings, vistas of the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge, walls of glass and a flexible floorplan to suit a variety of lifestyles.
Down a private driveway and through a gated entrance is the central courtyard and double-door entry to the dramatic foyer revealing a hip and contemporary vibe. The open living and dining great room features extensive floor to ceiling windows and two sets of sliding doors leading to the grounds, bringing the outdoors in. No neighbor is in sight as you gaze at the Bay views from one vantage point, the verdant park-like setting in another or the blossoming wisteria vines in your Zen-inspired garden. Imagine the wood-burning stove warming the space in the winter or a soft breeze wafting through the open doors during the summer.
A pantry door from the dining room opens to the eat-in kitchen equipped with stainless appliances including a Viking six-burner professional range and Bosch dishwasher. The casual dining in the breakfast nook overlooks a scenic valley. Unloading the groceries is convenient with level-in/out covered access from the two-car garage through the central courtyard directly to the kitchen.
Completing the main level are four bedrooms and two updated baths including a private primary suite with double vanity and generous closet space. This suite and 2 other bedrooms enjoy a vaulted ceiling, filtered views and doors that lead to the beautiful grounds.
While living on one level is an option, head downstairs to a family room with a second fireplace, an adjoining space for an office, home study or gym, third bathroom and laundry facilities. The space could easily be used for guests or an au-pair with its separate entrance.
The lush fully landscaped grounds are connected by meandering flagstone pathways and offer an abundance of citrus, fresh blooms for your dining table and the spaces to relax, dine and play. There’s plenty of options for outdoor food preparation and dining under the stars. For a change of scenery, a little over ¾ of a mile away is the Skyline gate entrance to the regional park trails. The local elementary and middle school are just down the hill and head a bit further to Montclair’s Sunday farmer’s market. 2500 Carisbrook is a hidden gem.
