Impressive for both its stature and supple lines, this four bedroom, three and one half bath home evokes casual elegance.  Soft stucco contours, arched windows, an iconic balustrade, red tile roof and extensive use of brick, wood & stone hardscape distinguish the exterior architectural components of the property. Interior appointments reflect a modernized vision of Mediterranean influence. Wide archways, tray ceilings, wide plank French oak flooring, warm wood finishes, aged bronze fixtures & hardware coalesce to forge a unified design statement.

Double oak doors welcome visitors to an open, airy and fluid floor plan. A light-filled living room with gas fireplace enclosure seamlessly opens to a dining room perfect for large gatherings.  The great room incorporates an open eat-in kitchen and family room with access to an expansive natural stone patio for outdoor entertaining. A spacious and sumptuous master suite serves as a private retreat and completes the main living level. Flexible space planning options continue on the lower level with three additional bedrooms.  One of two en suite bedrooms, replete with gas fireplace, wainscoting and private exterior entrance, may readily serve as a home office, au pair or in-law quarters.

An array of notable amenities ensure easy living & stylish comfort. .  An outsized pergola provides diffuse light over the flagstone patio while the amazing terraced garden beds feature drought tolerant ornamental species along with a profusion of fruit trees and vegetable plantings.  From the dumbwaiter, customized closets, central vacuum and state of the art home theatre system this home delivers practical & aesthetic enhancements on a grand scale.

Tucked away in the wooded hills and winding streets above Oakland, Montclair is a small community with an appealing central shopping district. Sizable custom homes, along with a mix of Mediterranean, Craftsman, and contemporary-style homes are situated on forested lots, offering an elegant retreat from the city. The Montclair Business District is a throwback to a simpler time before strip malls, megamalls, and big-box stores. Residents can find everything they need, from dry cleaning and groceries to restaurants. Local restaurant favorites include the Montclair Egg Shop, Flipper’s Gourmet Burgers, and Crogan’s Montclair Restaurant. Gourmet specialty items are available at Le Bonbon, and Farmstead Wine and Cheese. A farmers market on Sundays provides fresh local produce and baked goods. Montclair is home to fine-arts festivals throughout the year and a jazz festival in the late summer that enlivens the street scene.
