Features

2616 Beaconsfield Place is a stunning 3 bedroom 2 bath mid-century home with refined style, an open floor plan and amazing indoor/outdoor flow.   Originally designed by architect Allan R. Johannes of Artistic Ideas and built in 1948, the home measures 1844 sq. ft. (per past appraisal) and is sure to please the most discerning buyer.  From the gorgeous yards, to the amazing view deck to the large patio, this is California living at its best!

Enter the front door and prepare to be impressed!  From the floors to the paint colors to the beautiful outlooks this is one special house. The floors are a beautiful ebony and the sophisticated paint colors are in tune with today’s design aesthetic. With all the living space, bedrooms and bathrooms on one level this is a very easy home in which to live!

Once you step into the front door a sense of calm and ease takes over. Straight ahead is the entry hall with ample closet space and a cool built-in shelving unit that cleverly conceals the stairs that lead to the garage and laundry room below. The glass door at the end of the hallway gives you a glimpse of the patio and backyard.  

To your left is the dramatic light-filled living room featuring a wood-burning fireplace, a wall of windows with lovely shutters and a corner window that looks out to the view.  Open the corner window and French doors that lead to the front deck on those warm summer days and take advantage of the cool cross breeze.  Early evenings in this room are magical as you catch the sun setting over the hills out the front window and the bay and trees out the corner window.

Next to the living room is the dining area.  This area has been the scene of countless dinner parties and celebrations!   The built-in cabinets are a convenient place to store entertaining supplies such as dishes, napkins and special glassware and the wall of windows allow for ample light and wonderful sunset dinners.

Through a swinging butler door find the remodeled eat-in kitchen.  Efficiently laid out and well equipped, this kitchen is perfect for the home chef.  Installed in 2018, the KitchenAid cooktop, combination wall oven/microwave, and dishwasher will thrill the cook in the family.  The Porcelanosa subway tile backsplash compliments the beautiful white cabinetry and new Caesarstone counters.  The breakfast nook has corner windows that looks out to the patio.  The glass door from the kitchen to the back patio will make al fresco entertaining a breeze!

Speaking of al fresco this is one of the best outdoor spaces we have ever seen. At 14,391 sq. ft. (per appraisal) it’s like having your own park!  This yard is fully enclosed and has it all… patio, deck, level lawn, mature landscaping, planting gardens and a true sense of privacy! 

The large patio runs the length of the house and is accessible by glass doors from both the kitchen and the hallway.  The patio is made of warm flagstones and the gardens above the stacked rock garden wall are full of color and variety including several Japanese maples and drought-tolerant landscaping.  The charming water feature is situated on the patio just outside the master bedroom.

At the end of the patio find the expansive flat grassy yard which is fully enclosed and perfect for play or just hanging out. Foliage on the street side of the yard provides a natural screen to the neighboring homes and street below that results in a great sense of privacy. 

Beyond the lawn find the sizable view deck.  Imagine late nights with friends and family on the deck taking in the view which is beautifully framed by trees. 

A fenced planting garden in the front of the home completes the outdoor space and it even has an outdoor shower for the gardener who wants to rinse off before going back in the house.

All three bedrooms and bathrooms are conveniently located down a central hallway which has windows all along the wall, as well as two sets of glass doors that open to the patio.

The sizable master bedroom is located at the end of the hall. It has plenty of closet space and a terrific nook that could be used as a nursery, office, additional closet space or a peaceful reading area.  The floor to ceiling windows look out to the patio, beautiful landscaping, and charming water feature.  The remodeled master bathroom features beautiful finishes and a glass-enclosed shower with rain and hand-held shower heads. 

Bedrooms two and three are also located on the central hallway.  Both have beautiful shutters and good closets.  The main bathroom has also been remodeled with beautiful high-end finishes, and includes a wonderful glass tub enclosure.  It is conveniently located between the two bedrooms.

On the practical side the two-car garage and dedicated laundry room are located down the stairs just off the entry.  The laundry room has been fully remodeled with fresh tile and an industrial sink that will work for washing clothes or washing the dog!  Off the laundry room find extra storage.  The garage has plenty of space to store bikes, tools and anything else you might need.  The home also has air conditioning to keep you cool during those East Bay heat waves!

Just behind the home find Beaconsfield Canyon.  This 5.5 acre canyon was once slated for development but is now a city park and thriving thanks to Friends of Sausal Creek, a volunteer group that meets on the last Saturday of most months to restore and maintain the area. The open space harbors four different habitats and a wealth of native plants including a stand of rare black cottonwood trees.

Located in Piedmont Pines this is also a terrific location.  Just minutes from Montclair Village where you will find shops, services, restaurants and grocery stores.  Endless nearby trails include the stunning and dog-friendly French Trail in Redwood Regional Park, perfect for weekend adventures.  The Chabot Space and Science Center is less than 10 minutes away.

Highway 13, which leads to I-580 , Highway 24 and Rockridge BART, is just minutes away - making this a great commute location as well.

A wonderful home that will satisfy many of the “must-haves” on any buyers list… 2616 Beaconsfield Place is an amazing place to call home!

 

 

 

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, Perle, 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. 

Montclair is also home to many trails and parks of The East Bay Regional Park District which is the largest urban park district in the United States.  Many of the trails are bike and dog friendly and provide hours of outdoor fun.

Chabot Space & Science Center also calls Montclair home.  It is a hands on learing center featuring interactive exhibits, a digital planetarium, and three powerful telescopes. A great place to spend a fun day of exploring for young and old alike!
