Enjoy peace and tranquility in this serene Montclair Hills retreat. Relax and enjoy the view of Shepherd Canyon and a peek of the Bay from your spacious front deck or enjoy the level out back yard deck with its restful cascading water feature. The spacious great room is filled with natural light through many windows and glass doors with views of trees from every window! The spacious eat-in kitchen has been refreshed and includes a tremendous number of cabinets and counters, a gas cooktop, and a double oven. A picture window has a lovely Maple tree outside waiting to leaf.
The grand staircase leads to a large second level foyer with a wet bar. This floor has a primary suite with a tremendous walk-in closet and spacious bath with double sinks and counters. This room levels out to the wonderful yard. The second bedroom on this floor also accesses the yard and has a very generous closet. The third bedroom is a perfect child’s room or home office. There is a large hall bath with a shower over the tub and pretty leaf motifs.
You can take the garden stairs to this wonderful home…or pop into the 4 stop elevator which stops in the garage for those wet days and Costco runs, and stops a few feet away from your kitchen pantry.

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, Daughter's Thai, and Kakui. Gourmet specialty items are available at Le Bonbon, and Farmstead Wine and Cheese. A farmer's 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.
