The living and dining rooms as well as kitchen open to a large deck, facing the flourishing backyard with mature landscaping and a babbling creek beyond. The glass doors allow the sun to stream in and fill the spaces.
The upper-floor primary bedroom offers privacy from the other bedrooms and is a wonderful retreat with an ensuite remodeled bath, a walk-in closet and a private deck for enjoying the outdoors. The vaulted ceiling adds volume, to this appealing space. On the lower floor there are two bedrooms and a bath as well as an office/den with an exterior entry door. The floor plan is very flexible in its use. Amenities include AC, and electric car charger, ample storage, an attached two-car garage, and additional off-street parking.
The stylemark of this home is its superb outlooks to mature landscaping on a lush and large private parcel of land, a creek side sanctuary with deer roaming and birds singing. Situated in the highly desirable Piedmont side of Montclair and close to shopping destinations, restaurants, parks, schools and transportation to San Francisco, this home has great appeal.

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 farmer’s 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.
