958 Kingston Avenue on the Market

Filled with graceful proportions and gorgeous original architectural details, this four bedroom Piedmont home tucked between Beach Elementary and Piedmont Avenue was handcrafted in 1926.  

Architectural Details Abound

Built with yesterday's attention to detail, 958 Kingston Avenue offers the mahogany woodwork, high-style fireplace tilework and classic crown molding you'd expect from the Roaring '20s.  The current owner expanded the size of the living room, carefully matching the original architectural features, while creating a more spacious and expansive feel.  And the rebuilt entry and main floor is now level-in from the street! A gorgeous garden, complete with an unusual catalpa tree and roses blooming on all sides, completes the picture.

Move-In Ready

The current owner installed a number of upgrades, from new appliances in the kitchen to a number of dual-paned windows to an energy-efficient flash water heater.  Seismic work was completed by a previous owner.  There's over 300 sf of storage on the lower level, in addition to the garage.  Just move in and begin enjoying the Piedmont lifestyle!

Location, Location

A more convenient location would be hard to find!  Kingston Avenue sees little through traffic, and guest parking is plentiful.  Beach Elementary School (and after-school care at Schoolmates) is just two blocks away, and Piedmont Avenue (along with the Piedmont Avenue Library) is just two blocks in the opposite direction.  Drop off the kids at school, and grab a latte at one of Piedmont Avenue's many coffee shops before hopping on a WiFi-equipped express bus to San Francisco's financial district.  San Francisco, Berkeley, Emeryville and the Lamorinda/Tri-Valley area are all a convenient commute on Rt. 580/80, Rt. 13 or Rt. 24, as are SFO and OAK.    Playdates and games of catch are easy to organize--imagine a streamlined life!

Stroll to Piedmont Avenue for a Michelin-star meal at Commis, followed by an arthouse movie at the Piedmont Theater.  Restaurants and shopping in Rockridge, Montclair and the Elmwood are just a short distance away.

Both 958 Kingston Avenue and 104 Pala Avenue will be open during the hours of the CSL Tour (10-4 pm Friday and Saturday) as well as 2-5 pm on Sunday.
