This refreshed 3 bedroom/2 bath all-level living Mid-Century is a rare find in Piedmont, providing close proximity to both Grand Avenue and Piedmont Avenue shops & restaurants, as well as Fenton's Ice Creamery (made famous in Pixar's "UP.") Sited around an inviting rear courtyard with easy indoor/outdoor flow and tons of natural light, the large back patio is perfect for al fresco dining and impromptu entertaining. Offering convenient access to nearby freeways and public transportation, this property also falls within the highly coveted K-12 Piedmont public school system. It's stylish living in an updated package.
Piedmont, a two-square-mile city within the borders of Oakland, was incorporated in 1907 and was known then as “The City of Millionaires” because there were more millionaires per square mile residing there than in any other U.S. city. Today, their large, estate-like homes are still standing in the heart of Piedmont, reminding residents of its glitzy past. Homes in Piedmont range from those estate-like homes in central Piedmont with expansive grounds to more modest homes on the edges of town. Well-manicured landscapes prevail and the city’s stringent permitting guidelines ensure all of the homes maintain their original flavor.
The commercial area of the town is small, featuring several banks and one gas station. Mulberry’s Market, a specialty food store with ready-made meals, caters to gourmet taste buds and is the frequent morning coffee stop for parents and an after-school hot spot for kids. Piedmont’s proximity to Oakland’s many big-city amenities ensures Piedmonters will not miss out on the latest restaurants or first-run movies, and its several well-maintained parks and playing fields provide ample opportunity for sports year-round.
The sense of community is strong, as witnessed by the large turnout for the annual Fourth of July parade that happens each year down Highland Avenue.The Piedmont Recreation Center offers a central gathering place for residents. Available for rental, it is a frequent setting for community events and parties.The beautiful grounds provide a wonderful place to hang out and play, and the wooded trail connecting the Center to the high school is the best place to take your dog to play.
A casual carpool zone on Oakland Avenue, along with proximity to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District buses, offer workers convenient commute options.
Pride in community involvement, coveted K-12 public schools, movie-nights in the park, village-living surrounded by a diverse and thriving metropolis, easy access to downtown Oakland or San Francisco, and a throwback to a time when kids could ride bikes and joyfully walk with friends to the park, are just a few of the reasons people love to live in Piedmont.
