158 Holly Place in Piedmont Comes to Market! (In April 2017)
If you're looking to simplify your life in a gorgeous storybook-style setting, consider 158 Holly Place, in Piedmont.
Comprised of four bedrooms and two baths, the home is just a block from Dracena Park and its playground and dog romp area, and four blocks from Fenton's Ice Cream on Piedmont Avenue!
Lots of Fabulous Light
The East Bay's family light pours into this home through large banks of south- and east-facing windows.
They also afford great views from the dining room, kitchen,and master bedroom suite.
Surrounded by a hedge, the large flat lush yard is very private.
Anticipate summer while washing the dishes--an apple tree's blooms frame the window over the kitchen sink! Enjoy the tray ceiings in living and dining rooms, and just refinished hardwood flooring throughout.
When you're ready to entertain, the large formal dining room beckons, but start with cocktails on the remarkably private back patio.
Close to Schools and Latte
A better more walkable Piedmont location would be hard to find! Just a couple blocks from highly rated Beach Elementary, and a few more to the middle and high schools, commutes become a breeze. Drop off the kids at school and catch casual carpool to the City, or duck into one of the array of cafe options on Piedmont Avenue, and catch a WiFi-equipped bus to San Francisco. Downtown Oakland is a very manageable bike ride away.
The elementary school offers on-site before- and after-school care run by the Recreation Department--and summer camps are well-organized and easy to coordinate as well! (Check PUSD for availability at Beach.)
Great Layout and Systems; Ready for your Updates
The home's very spacious master suite addition offers oh-so-rare large closets! And one bedroom includes access to a bonus playroom tucked above the one-car garage.
The sewer lateral appears compliant; the gutter system, hot water heater and furnace are newer; electrical service is upgraded to 200 amps; and the home is bolted. And there's plenty of attic storage in both wings of this charming one-level home. Move in and relax, and when you're ready, make step-by-step kitchen and bath improvements on YOUR schedule and budget!
