On a tree-lined street, through the St. James Gates sits an inspired 4Bdrm/2.5Bth Tudor Traditional. Lovingly maintained, this dramatic home features an inviting front courtyard, original wooden beams and architectural details, including a vaulted ceiling with trusses, wood-burning fireplace, hardwood floors, iron chandeliers, and French-pane windows. Offering formal living and dining rooms, spacious eat-in kitchen, lovely primary suite with attached study, and finished bonus space below, this beautiful house has room to spare. Near Park Boulevard shops & restaurants, a stone's throw from Montclair Village, and just a hop, skip and a jump from the center of town to Piedmont's acclaimed K-12 public schools and parks, its convenient location also makes for an easy commute. This is true love!
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. Well-manicured landscapes prevail and the city’s stringent permitting guidelines ensure all of the homes maintain their original flavor. The commercial area of 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 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. 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 the 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 and village living are just a few of the reasons people love to live in Piedmont.
