It's not everyday that I attach a giveaway to a listing, but when my savvy clients asked me to think "outside the box," and when one of them makes her living in marketing and advertising, and the other in real estate, it was time to put on my creative cap and get to work composing a "smart" solution for a very "smart" home at 6 Abbot Way in Piedmont.
Utilizing app technology, this beautifully renovated Contemporary can be controlled with your iPad or smart phone. But because the house sits above Coach's Field off Maxwelton, we wanted to make sure it didn't get passed by. As the GenZe 2.0 Scooter also has an app and runs on clean electricity, this seemed to be a natural coupling. In other words, smart house, smart ride!
Happily, when I called the marketing department at GenZe (yes, you can do that), they quickly agreed and on Wednesday, my husband, Cliff, helped me pick up the bright blue scooter and drive it home. It'll be parked at the Valero gas station in Piedmont or up at 6 Abbott Way on Sundays for the next 10 days or so until one lucky winner is randomly chosen once the house goes into escrow.
But to win it, you'll need to visit me at 6 Abbott Way and register, where the focus is all about the house which features a dramatic open floorplan, floating staircase with glass panels, vaulted ceilings, three gas fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling windows, spacious master suite with two walk-in closets, private study/office, guest quarters with separate entrance, and state-of-the-art kitchen with adjacent family room and sunny decks. Truly, it's California living at its best.
Just a wooded trail away from Coach's Field, and a quick ride down the hill, this stunning turn-key home is also conveniently located close to Montclair Village and Hwy 13 for easy commuting. (What's not to love?)
So come see me on Sunday and enter for your chance to win. I'll even bake my famous chocolate-chip cookies because a home with this much zip and style, deserves a stylish marketing approach and a stylish family to inhabit it. You don't want to miss this rare opportunity!
Open Sunday, October 22 and 29, 2-4:30pm.
List Price: $2,050,000
