"Expansive and peaceful are the words that come to mind when you first enter this lovely home. Tucked behind a Japanese-inspired garden and embraced by a grand and stately oak, its entry is set above a secluded cul-de-sac. Come inside and feel a sense of ease communicated by the volume of space and lightness, enhanced by the comfortable flow between the primary living areas. Dramatic beamed ceilings rise above the living room and shafts of light fill the home. A cozy window-lined breakfast nook beckons to you from the far end of the home, just past the recently remodeled kitchen with its high-end appliances, ample cupboards and built-in desk.
The private areas of this four bedroom and three bathroom floorplan were also thoughtfully configured. The master bedroom is set a half story apart from two secondary bedrooms with their shared bathroom. The master bedroom is graced by sliding glass doors that open out onto a private, fenced deck area, from which you can enjoy the evening breezes and the early morning birdsong. The fourth bedroom sits another half story down, with its own dedicated full bathroom, with private access. It was designed to allow for use as a separate inlaw or au pair suite.
The sunny breakfast nook is perfect for daily meals. The dining room is also a welcoming space, perhaps for more formal gatherings or romantic fire-side meals. The voluminous living room will accommodate multiple seating areas. Gather around the raised fireplace on chilly days, or find private repose seated by the windows while soaking in the views of hillside greenery. The mature garden is landscaped with deer-tolerant plantings and natural oak woodland flora.
From the living room, you can move out onto the small private deck adjoining the master bedroom, or you can step into the terraced, private rear garden, with high quality hardscape and naturalistic landscaping that blend beautifully with the natural setting. There are multiple outdoor living/dining spaces, whether you lean more toward the barbeque, or the sorts of finer cuisine you might prepare using the built-in kitchen cooktop and sink island.
As you come and go from your home on Calvert Court, you’ll enjoy the convenience of the attached two-car garage, and perhaps even more so, the wine cellar with its stone countertop, and stools set up for tastings. Its lovely wood racks are built to accommodate your collection, or to encourage you to start a collection if you haven’t already. Cheers!
While life in the hills of Piedmont feels removed from our urban environment, Calvert Court is located just minutes from charming downtown Piedmont in one direction and just minutes from the many shops and restaurants of Montclair Village in the other.
Enjoy the best of both worlds by making this your "Piedmont-ish"* home: The future owners of this very special home are eligible to enroll their children in Piedmont schools, but pay the appealingly lower Oakland taxes.**
