Happy Making, House by House
Mid-century vibes with level entry in this tranquil Montclair Hills retreat! Soaring ceilings, sunken living room w fireplace, original built-ins, updated eat-in kitchen and that classic indoor/outdoor California flow that makes for modern living and great entertaining. Light and airy additional family room with deck access on main level could easily make a 5th bedroom. 4 bedrooms and 2 updated baths are situated on lower level including a generous primary suite with walk-in closet and soaking tub. Spacious in-law unit with interior and exterior access on lower level offers a multitude of living arrangements. Owners replaced the 1200 sq ft upper deck in 2022 and completed a custom-engineered seismic strengthening in 2019. A lower backyard, reached by deer trail, has a large flat area, perfect for a play area or green thumb. Nestled high in the trees with verdant canyon views but a quick drive to Montclair village shops, eateries and breezy freeway access. Just 10 min to Rockridge BART and 25 min to downtown SF!
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.
