THE CROWN JEWELL OF THE COURT

 

Spectacular and sophisticated, this Phillip Perkins-designed 4BD/3.5BA house is a true gem. Sitting on newly developed cul-de-sac in the Montclair Hills, this beautiful location has become a showcase for custom homes from a select group of architects and home builders. 

A handsome street presence is the first indication of the style and attention to detail within. A unique horizontal layout, two garages on either side of the house and different tones of stucco make a statement of balance and symmetry. Inside, the foyer has a balcony with Italian Cambria tile that overlooks a canyon and an amazing bay view, for a dramatic welcome. Spacious and gracious, there are high ceilings, recessed lighting and an open layout. The chef's kitchen includes a large island with waterfall edges, lovely Calacatta-like quartz surfaces, high-end appliances, two sinks, LED lighting and a polished, European design. Imagine enjoying your coffee in the breakfast nook surrounded by bay and canyon views. The living room has several oversized windows on either side of the fireplace, creating an incredible panorama. This convenient floor plan also features a half-bath and access to one of the garages. In the formal dining room, two walls are actually sliding glass doors that open onto the central patio, extending the living space and creating a wonderfully integrated indoor/outdoor entertaining opportunity.

The mezzanine bedroom suite is a private refuge with all the amenities: gorgeous views, a modern fireplace, huge walk-in closet and a lovely spa-like bathroom. Up another flight of stairs is a reading nook with views from both sides - city lights in one direction and hillside lights on the other. Down the hall is a fabulous master bedroom sanctuary that defines luxury and comfort. A fireplace for cozy winter nights and an overhead fan and access to the wraparound balcony for summer evenings make this retreat perfect for all seasons. The incredible bathroom has a sleek design and fabulous details: a glassed-in shower with six jet sprays, beautiful glass tiles and vessel sinks, a free-standing tub in front of a picture window framing Sibley Park, a gigantic walk-in closet and a separate WC with toilet and bidet. A convenient laundry room and an office/study or nursery complete this level. Downstairs there are two more guest bedrooms with a full bathroom.

One of Montclair's newest streets, Jewell Court, is high on the hill and equidistant to Oakland and Orinda, enjoying the advantages of both. With the perfect site and lots of windows, there are views from all directions. Privacy and quiet, comfortable level-in living, deluxe detailing and bright and modern style make this home a sparkling treasure.

Neighborhood


Montclair

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 A.G. Ferrari, 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.
