Piedmont has 26 active listings this week, offering buyers everything from a sleek and sophisticated home on Moraga Avenue, offered at $899,000 to an Elegant and Grand Estate on Lincoln Avenue, listed for $7,800,000. Speaking to her range and years of experience, Anian Tunney represents both ends of this spectrum (and several in between).
So let's begin with the Beautiful Traditional listing on Lincoln Avenue, which represents luxury at its very finest. This 4-story grand residence might just as easily sit alongside the mansions in Presidio Heights in San Francisco, but chances are it wouldn't offer the extraordinary all-level garden, with clematis-covered arches and formal lawn just outside the elegant dining room. With 6++bdrms/5++ bths, formal living and dining room, chef's kitchen, family room, finished attic, sauna, wine cellar and more, it wants for nothing. Shown by appointment only.
Dramatically different, but dramatic just the same, is the uniquely stylish 5bdrm/4bth Contemporary at 12 Littlewood. With a sunny open floor plan, inviting living, dining and family rooms, stunning built-in lap pool and fabulous and private woodland/garden setting on more than ½ acre, this property has already sparked huge interest and has offers ready to be presented. With demand like that, it's bound to go quickly so don't wait (see "What's Pending?").
If "immaculate" and "turn-key" define your search criteria, look no further than 32 Arbor Drive. This renovated, refurbished, resplendent Mediterranean (all the "re"asons you're looking to buy) is sheer perfection in its every detail. Featuring 3bdrms/3bths, library, media room, professional kitchen, and easy location, this stunning homes has it all. If you had almost given up the idea of owning in Piedmont, now is the time to "re"connect.
