PIEDMONT PINES RETREAT WITH SWEEPING VIEWS
If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to staycation at home and escape the confines of urban living, look no further than 18 Camelford Place. Perched on a corner lot with City skyline and San Francisco Bay views from nearly every room, this 4-bedroom Piedmont Pines traditional (c. 1939) is located mere minutes to the hiking and biking trails of the Joaquin Miller and Redwood Regional Parks and the shopping and dining of Montclair Village. The spacious floorplan features living and sleeping quarters that could easily accommodate a large household or offer a variety of alternatives for work-from-home spaces. The seamless indoor/outdoor living makes it virtually impossible to stay indoors during the warmer months, as the park-like setting beckons you to throw a ball, nap in a hammock, grill your favorite entrée or dine under the stars.
Enter the home from the attached two car garage or let the romance of the property unfold as you follow the stone pathway under towering trees to the front door and welcoming foyer. Once inside, the setting reveals itself as you are immediately drawn to the natural light from the windows and the panoramic views.
The living room features a picture window showcasing downtown Oakland and San Francisco skylines, built-in cabinetry, intricate archways and brick fireplace. Double French doors open to a stone courtyard, a sanctuary for a quiet afternoon read, dining with friends or hopscotch for fun.
One could imagine a large round dining table in the hexagonal dining room with built-in china cabinets, where each guest would enjoy a slightly different vista, ranging from a peek of the bay from one side to the expanse of the surrounding verdant hillside from another.
The updated eat-in kitchen has quartz countertops, stainless appliances including a four-burner gas range and second oven, built-in seating and a door leading out to the patio for easy breezy outdoor food preparation.
Two bedrooms with Golden Gate Bridge views and two baths (one with bath en-suite) are located on the main level. Either could easily function as a home office, den or family room.
As you make your way upstairs, you are greeted with sweeping views at the landing. On either side of the hallway is a bedroom, one the owner’s suite with its spacious bath featuring a double vanity, skylight and large walk-in shower.
The lower level offers laundry facilities, storage, space to work out and opens to the rear yard with the potential for a long level lawn for play.
Situated on over ¼ acre in a neighborhood of long-established homes in a natural and serene setting, this special property offers the best of nearby services and recreational facilities that seem to be worlds away from the hustle and bustle of city life. 18 Camelford Place welcomes you to come, look around and find, perhaps, your perfect place to relax in 2020.
