Serene Montclair Sanctuary


about this home's










It’s just a short drive from Montclair Village to this tranquil house surrounded by trees. Enter through the yellow door to an office space, and then head upstairs to the open floor plan dining and living rooms with sliding glass doors that lead to a new wood deck (2023). The deck provides an easily accessible entertaining space with a peek of the Bay view on a clear day. Quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and plenty of cabinets create a well laid out kitchen. An additional sliding glass door leads to the backyard plus another outdoor seating area where you can enjoy dining al fresco. The house has three bedrooms, and one totally remodeled bathroom (2023) with designer tile and vanity with double sinks. New luxury vinyl flooring installed in all living areas (2023), except the bedrooms which are graced with original oak floors. Add to this a 2-car garage, and a large lot. Close to urban amenities, yet once you're home you'll feel a world away!

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.
