Dramatically restored 1907 beauty in the heart of Elmwood, and a few short blocks from the historic Claremont Hotel, this property welcomes you through a private garden. From Piedmont Avenue, you enter beneath an arbor-topped gateway, and follow a gently meandering pathway past a patio with a seating area and lush plantings. A traditional slate-tiled covered porch brings you in where you're received by a formal entry reception room which flows into a spacious living room and for all dining room. Throughout these spaces, you'll discover hardwood floors with inlay detailing, and gleaming, restored hardwood wall paneling, all believed to be original to the home. Both living room and dining room are graced with large fireplaces. The first floor is completed with a separate office, laundry room, a large eat-in kitchen as well as a butler's pantry, and a half bathroom.
Up the carpeted stairs, you'll find four bedrooms, two of which have attached private secondary rooms which bay serve as dressing areas, sewing rooms, or a space for studying. Two full marble-tiled bathrooms serve these bedrooms. Light fills these upstairs bedrooms, and the softwood floors give the space a warm and gentle feel.
On the third floor, a very large attic has been developed and improved. This space is not formally considered "living area," but it adds more than 1,000 square feet of potentially usable space to the home's already considerable 2,842 square feet of living area. This third floor could make for a comfortable retreat and hang-out area, an artist's studio, or play area.
As you tour 2918 Piedmont Avenue, you'll see the numerous restored elements that speak of the 110 year history of this home - polished brass doorknobs, original divided light wood windows, hardwood wall paneling, and all with a sense of space and proportion that meet modern needs. The newly landscaped fully-fenced garden offers a respite from a busy world, the moment you will in off the sidewalk. Homes of this stature and grandeur are rarely available in our East Bay market. This stately brown shingle home is further enhanced by its location in the prestigious Elmwood Park neighborhood, just a block off of College Avenue.
