3 bedrooms | 2 baths + Studio

Nestled on a bucolic Montclair hillside, this updated contemporary three-plus bedroom / two-bathroom home is the perfect retreat to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With a sense of serenity and natural beauty of the expansive 180-degree views from the back deck, time seems to slow down. Surrounded by greenery from both the natural tree setting and the established landscaping, this home is designed with two separate living areas: the primary residence and a separate one-bedroom / one-bathroom studio on the lower level.

Designed for entertaining, this beautifully updated, sunny, and spacious home has special custom features. With a soaring painted beam ceiling overhead, the remodeled eat-in kitchen has newer appliances, granite countertops, and custom-built Shaker-style ash wood cabinetry. The kitchen has French doors which open to the large, sunny rear deck where you can have your morning coffee or host guests with dinners under the stars. Adjacent to the kitchen is a cozy area for relaxing and spending time with family and friends. For movie night, this area features a custom built-in media cabinet for your flat-screen television and sound equipment.

The warm and inviting living room also features a soaring painted beam ceiling, custom built-in bookcases with storage closets on both sides, a fireplace with a tiled hearth, and large sliding glass doors that open to the rear deck for entertaining and outdoor relaxation. In between the living room and kitchen is a formal dining room for special dinners and hosting guests. Across from the dining table is a large picture window looking out on the rear deck and the backyard greenery. With an eye for entertaining friends and family, you will find the easy flow from room to room perfect for hosting larger gatherings.

The spacious primary bedroom suite now features the recently remodeled and updated primary “spa-like” bathroom with custom-designed windows. This bathroom now has a large, frameless glass shower with a temperature-controlled faucet and a separate soaking tub. While relaxing in the tub, the tall window allows you to take in the beautiful tree view.

The lower-level studio has a separate entrance with its own deck, eat-in kitchen, cozy living room, bedroom, and bathroom. This studio comes in handy when hosting family and friends visiting from out of town. If you like hiking, both the Huckleberry Botanical Park and the Sibley Volcanic hiking trails are nearby. If you prefer swimming, the Montclair Swim Club is even closer. On Sunday mornings, the Montclair Farmers Market in the middle of Montclair Village is a favorite activity, too.
