Jane Strauch Presents
Welcome to indoor-outdoor living at its finest on one of Piedmont’s iconic streets. Step inside this custom-designed and recently renovated Mid Century gem and be wowed. Through the foyer and past the office, enter the light-filled “lanai” with vaulted ceilings, original capiz globe lights and sliding glass wall that opens to a resort-like backyard. The house orients around the lush landscaping and privacy of this outdoor space, with multiple entertainment/play areas. The indoor common spaces flow seamlessly, from the lanai with spacious seating and garden views to the living/media room (which also opens to the outdoors) to the modern eat-in kitchen. Past the wet bar and guest bath, up a few steps is the bedroom wing. The primary suite boasts a spacious walk-in closet and spa-like bath. Two additional bedrooms with large closets, plus laundry and full bath complete this private oasis. Separate guest house with full bath, room for kitchenette and entrances from the lawn or private walkway is a perfect additional bedroom, second office, kid hang-out, or gym. Attached garage has an EV charging station and new WIFI-enabled door. Close to award-winning K-12 schools and all that Piedmont has to offer, this bright and airy home is waiting for you to enjoy the best of California living!
Piedmont, a two-square-mile city within the borders of Oakland, was incorporated in 1907 and was known then as “The City of Millionaires” because there were more millionaires per square mile residing there than in any other U.S. city. Today, their large, estate-like homes are still standing in the heart of Piedmont, reminding residents of its glitzy past. Homes in Piedmont range from those estate-like homes in central Piedmont with expansive grounds to more modest homes on the edges of town. Well-manicured landscapes prevail and the city’s stringent permitting guidelines ensure all of the homes maintain their original flavor.
The commercial area of the town is small, featuring several banks and one gas station. Mulberry’s Market, a specialty food store with ready-made meals, caters to gourmet taste buds and is the frequent morning coffee stop for parents and an after-school hot spot for kids. Piedmont’s proximity to Oakland’s many big-city amenities ensures Piedmonters will not miss out on the latest restaurants or first-run movies, and its several well-maintained parks and playing fields provide ample opportunity for sports year-round.
The sense of community is strong, as witnessed by the large turnout for the annual Fourth of July parade that happens each year down Highland Avenue.The Piedmont Recreation Center offers a central gathering place for residents. Available for rental, it is a frequent setting for community events and parties.The beautiful grounds provide a wonderful place to hang out and play, and the wooded trail connecting the Center to the high school is the best place to take your dog to play.
A casual carpool zone on Oakland Avenue, along with proximity to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District buses, offer workers convenient commute options.
Pride in community involvement, coveted K-12 public schools, movie-nights in the park, village-living surrounded by a diverse and thriving metropolis, easy access to downtown Oakland or San Francisco, and a throwback to a time when kids could ride bikes and joyfully walk with friends to the park, are just a few of the reasons people love to live in Piedmont.
