Large home with huge SF Bay views on one of Montclair's most coveted and level streets. This wonderful five bedroom home has been in the same family since 1968 and is ready for your modern touches. At the heart of it all is a spacious great room with built-in bookshelves, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a wood-burning fireplace, complete with comfy hearth. All of this overlooks a gorgeous view of SF Bay. The kitchen is ready for updating to your taste, but I’d keep the built-in rotisserie! The comfortable layout upstairs also features three bedrooms and two full baths, and gleaming hardwood floors.
Downstairs is a newly carpeted two-bedroom in-law unit with separate entrance complete with a small kitchenette that made a nice rental for years. There is also a plus room and large game room, and spacious garage with interior access. Large and inviting yard, recently cleared but with mature trees and a deck to the dining room just perfect for entertaining. A smaller deck from the living room provides another peaceful spot to admire the bay. There’s plenty of space for all in this special home, offering endless possibilities for your lifestyle. All, just up the way from Montclair Village, Hwy 13, parks and trails, top schools, and the Bay Bridge.
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.
