ALL-LEVEL PIEDMONT MID-CENTURY
Situated on a picturesque tree-lined street in Piedmont is this all-level and completely updated mid-century with a superb floor plan for seamless indoor/outdoor California living. You will appreciate the level-in access from the garage at the rear of the property for daily errands while your guests enjoy a peek of the San Francisco Bay from the welcoming front porch. The living areas are interlaced by random wide-plank hardwood floors to create a blissful retreat that will be hard to leave when the world opens back up.
The spacious living and dining rooms with high ceilings are bathed in natural light, offer filtered Bay views and are perfect for entertaining on a grand scale. The nerve center of the home is the renovated chef’s kitchen and adjoining family room that opens out to the backyard. The kitchen is fully equipped with a Thermador five-burner induction range with in-counter hood and matching built-in microwave. The Sub-Zero refrigerator and adjacent dishwasher facades have cabinet facing fronts to match the décor. The natural stone countertops offer ample surface area for both food preparation and display. From the kitchen, keep an eye on the action in the adjoining family room with built-in entertainment center and double French doors to the expansive rear grounds for play, entertaining and dining under the stars.
The bedroom wing and guest quarters are at opposite ends of the home. Off the kitchen, there are three bedrooms and two updated baths. The main bedroom suite, at the end of the hallway, enjoys a walk-in closet with organizer, spa-like bath with double vanity and double French doors out to the backyard. Completing this wing are the laundry facilities. The fourth bedroom and full bath, off the family room, can be used as a home office, au-pair or guest room.
The expansive level grounds include front and back lawns for play, a stone patio for dining/food preparation and a towering maple that provides seasonal color and shade for a cozy hammock for the late afternoon nap. The detached two-car garage with storage offers convenient and private level-in access to the kitchen for easy loading and unloading shopping and groceries.
Welcome home to 114 Crocker Avenue, just one block to Crocker Park and a few blocks more to the center of town where top rated schools, recreational facilities and Mulberry’s Market are at your fingertips.
Piedmont is a small residential community that is notable for its charming homes and estates and tree-lined streets. Although primarily a residential community, it enjoys the abundance of cultural and recreational activities of its larger neighbors, Oakland and Berkeley.
Although Piedmont is a “city within a city”, as it is completely surrounded by Oakland, it retains a small town life enhanced by first rate city services, including its own fire, police, public works and top rated school system. Located just minutes from San Francisco, Emeryville, and the Oakland financial district, Piedmont remains one of the top choices for residents who want to enjoy community life while remaining close to large centers of commerce.
Piedmont has approximately 11,000 residents, 3,800 households and covers 1.7 square miles. The small downtown enjoys Mulberry’s Market (the only shopping in town), three banks, a gas station and several professional offices. At the center of town is Piedmont Park, often a central meeting area for children and adults, where they can enjoy picnics, off-leash walks with a dog, numerous concerts and festivals and a play area for children.
