Built in 1916, this special home on a double lot joins period elements and modern amenities. With its English garden setting, vintage gate, and brick pathway to the quintessential front porch, it couldn’t be more charming.
Inside, original hardwood floors with perimeter striping and antique lighting create rich character. To the right of the entry, the brilliant front room features tall wainscoting, a box-coved ceiling,clinker brick fireplace, and built-ins for a large library. The atmosphere beckons for conversations of literature and art. Across the hall through wide room entries is the dining room, where lively meals can be enjoyed under the ornate lighting.
A swinging door opens to the adjacent and cheerful kitchen. Featuring long counters, copious cabinetry, and top-of-the-line appliances—including an Italian Bertazzoni range! The kitchen provides both form and high-end function. Plus, the room has a built-in desk for home management.
Completing the lower level is a bedroom and full bathroom, with a convenient door to the outside hot tub for rinsing off after a soak. What a smart design feature!
The classic stairway leads to the second floor, where three bedrooms and a bath fan out from the central landing. Two bedrooms across the hall from each other are symmetrical, and the front room is centered and spacious, with built-in cabinetry and views of the front gardens. Serving these rooms, the large bathroom features dual sinks, a glass-enclosed shower and soaking tub.
As a bonus, the most charming office imaginable occupies the backside of the home. With an exposed wood ceiling, built-ins, and sweet wood-framed windows showing off long views of the Piedmont hills, one can’t help but be inspired to produce and create.
Out the kitchen Dutch door is the delightful backyard deck, patio, and garden. Chalk full of colorful roses, fruit tress—lemon, orange, fig, apple, plum, and more!—
and planter beds, the yard bursts in life and color. One can enjoy it dining under the stars or from the cedar hot tub.
4330 Montgomery is in a prized neighborhood of beautiful, unique homes. With a Walk Score of 96, it’s a walker’s paradise with boutiques, cafes, and more on Piedmont Ave, Broadway, and several other nearby shopping districts.
When we think of the Piedmont Avenue neighborhood in Oakland, the first thing that comes to mind is Fenton’s Creamery! Fentons’s was absolutely this area’s crown when I was a kid, but in the last 30 years this strip of commerce has grown into a collection of fine restaurants, shops and home bric-a-brac, stacked side by side. Arguably the new crown of the strip is Michelin-starred Commis. We love the cozy and quirky Piedmont Theatre, Oakland’s longest running cinema. It best kept secret is Piedmont Springs offering its customers on indoor/outdoor soaking experience. Watch a game or participate in a trivia night at Cato’s Ale House. Real estate wise, the architecture is a combination of Craftsman homes, condominium communities and multi-family properties. Neighborhood giants include, Julia Morgan-designed Chapel of the Chimes and Frederick Law Olmsted’s Mountain View Cemetery. Somehow, Piedmont Avenue pulls off a small town vibe despite its dense commercial offerings. It is a wonderful escape for a day, and an even place to call your neighborhood.
