Serene Piedmont Mid-Century
Nestled on a picturesque street just above Hampton Park and less than a mile to Montclair Village shops and dining is this updated Mid-Century with pleasing vistas in every direction. Whether you need to satisfy a large household or find flexible space to work and play from home, this comfortable residence will suit a variety of lifestyles. Picture windows bringing the outdoors in, random plank light wood floors and low maintenance landscaping for outdoor enjoyment combine to create a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of urban living. With 13 years of top-rated schools and all of Piedmont’s fine public services at your fingertips, this may well be your forever home.
From the entry, look through to the park-like view from the living room. The light and airy surrounds enjoy morning sun beckoning you out through French doors to an expansive terrace with bench seating and room for outdoor dining, play and relaxation. The adjoining dining room offers similar views and also opens to the terrace, creating wonderful flow for indoor/outdoor living.
For the social chef who appreciates guests participating in the cooking, the spacious and well-equipped kitchen with cathedral ceiling features a Wolf six-burner 36” cooktop, Viking professional style hood, Thermador double ovens and a Bosch dishwasher. Loads of stone counter space, generous cabinetry including multiple pantries and a light-filled dining area will satisfy an active and hungry household. When there are groceries to unload, the kitchen opens to the attached two-car garage for convenience.
There are five bedrooms and three baths, including a primary suite plus two bedrooms and full bath on the main level and the remaining two bedrooms and third bath downstairs. The primary suite enjoys serene views, both a walk-in and second closet and a spa-like bath with double shower. The two lower level bedrooms could serve overnight guests, a larger household or a combination with a home office or hobby room. The spacious family room with a second fireplace separates the two lower-level bedrooms for added privacy and is perfect for sleepover parties, sporting events or movie night. Completing the lower level is a laundry room with sink and built-in cabinets, gym space and storage.
Sheltered from the road, the level front yard is the perfect spot for play or relaxing. Imagine tossing a ball, sitting around a firepit or enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning. The expansive back terrace is reached from three different rooms for seamless indoor/outdoor flow and offers a private setting with peaceful views. Beyond are the rear grounds that could continue to serve as natural surroundings or be landscaped for daily use.
This home has a convenient location near public transportation, freeway access and the Montclair Village. It is just steps to Hampton Park with its sports field, tennis and basketball courts, play structure and the Piedmont Play School. Welcome to 50 Crest Road.
