This charming bungalow is a rare hidden gem with big views of San Francisco and an expansive level backyard. Originally built in 1925 as a hunting cabin, this two bedroom, one bath cottage is rich with a rustic farmhouse vibe, large view deck, refinished hardwood floors, brand new kitchen, and refreshed bath. Vaulted open beamed ceilings and kitchen skylight create an airy and open vacation home feeling.
On delightful Merriewood Drive, the generous 5,940 square foot lot is mostly level with easy access through the backyard from the parking area on the private lane behind. Laundry/Mud room and outdoor storage shed add convenience to this delightful package.
Location, location, location...you are just a hop, skip and a jump to Yarrow Nursery, esteemed Thornhill Elementary and under a mile to Montclair Village with its fabulous shopping, dining and weekend farmers market. Easy access to Hwy 13 and 24 take you either direction for an easy commute to just about anywhere! But take note.... you may never want to leave this special property.
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.
