Full description:

Ideally situated on approximately three quarters of an acre of land, this magnificent six bedroom, six and a half bath home is located on one of Piedmont's most sought after streets. Five fireplaces, patterned oak floors, thick crown mouldings, plantation shutters and detailed woodwork throughout create a luxurious interior design that flows out of multiple French doors to the gorgeous park-like grounds of redwoods, oaks and Japanese maples.

On the main level, fanning outward from the grand foyer and overlooking the property is the majestic, light filled living room with French doors leading to the upper terrace. A cosy office with fireplace, private guest suite, formal dining room and powder room are also on the main level. The home's principal entertainment area is the spacious family room. This is connected to a casual dining area and a gourmet kitchen. This ensemble of rooms leads to a spacious terrace overlooking the gardens and the pool. Complete with fireplace, the terrace is perfect for outdoor dining or family events. The gourmet kitchen is a cook's delight and includes: central cherry wood island with hand carved legs by Berkeley artisan Sheri Tharp and polished granite counter top with integrated sink, concrete counters with an integrated sink that matches the fireplace hearth in the family room (by Sonoma Cast Stone), two Bosch dishwashers, a six burner professional Viking range, Thermador oven, wine fridge, and a cabinet-panelled dual Sub-Zero refrigerator, hand-crafted glass mosaic over range designed by Ellen Blakeley, copious cabinetry and a huge walk-in pantry.

The upper level features two separate bedroom suites (one with a secret children's playroom behind the closet), two additional bedrooms with a Jack-and-Jill bath, and the magnificent master bedroom - equipped with an office, huge California walk-in closet, and a spa-like bath with dual granite-surround sinks and a soaking tub positioned to take advantage of the park like setting.

The lower level is designed to accommodate many family activities and includes a complete workshop, a gym, a 350+ bottle wine room, an art studio and a full bath and laundry room.  The art studio - with full stainless steel wet bar - opens out to the pool patio for indoor-outdoor enjoyment. 

The exterior setting of this home is rare and wonderful. Nature is on full display from virtually every room in the house. Wisteria covers the patio trellis while colourful flora and mature trees of various species envelop the entire property, providing total privacy. Sunlight splashes the outdoor terraces and the swimming pool. Children will enjoy the vegetable garden with its fresh produce and surely find great adventures across the land, ultimately making their way to the lower yard play area. To enhance the natural landscape, the home is equipped with solar panels. All power lines on the street are neatly hidden under ground and a there is two car garage with ample off-street parking.  

With top-rated schools, fabulous parks, and a convenient location for shops, restaurants and public transportation, this estate is truly a unique opportunity in the City of Piedmont.
