There is plenty of inventory to talk about this week and the following examples represent stylish homes both in and out of Piedmont - and in a range of price points. Each is special in its own right and all of them are worth a mention here! Let's begin with Anian Tunney's new listing which is a spectacular French Regency style residence on a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of Piedmont. This elegant home at 9 Requa Place, offers 4bdrms/4bths, stunning gallery entryway with soaring ceilings, inviting patio courtyard with dipping pool, spacious formal living and dining rooms, 2-car garage and views! Open Sunday 2-4:30. Price: $2,950,000 Carol Brown's listing at 21 Park Way had terrific activity last weekend and with good reason. At $1,350,000 this centrally located, modified Craftsman, across from Dracena Park offers a tremendous amount of space and loads of potential in a charming package. Open this Sunday from 2-4:30 with offers expected early next Week!
My pick of the week in Crocker Highlands is an elegant English style home on Longridge Road, featuring 4bdrms/3.5bths, cook's kitchen, family room and guest or au pair quarters. Consider this terrific and historic neighborhood where like-kind homes are often much less than similar homes in Piedmont. With tree-lined streets and an active and engaging community, Crocker Highlands ranks high in desirability!
The 3bdrm/2bth Craftsman Bungalow on Mandana Boulevard, near Lakeshore Avenue is absolutely charming. This lovely home features remodeled kitchen and baths, original wood detailing in living and dining rooms, new landscaping and old-world charm at an affordable price! Finally, Glenview offers a beautiful and sunny bungalow on Brighton Avenue. This "pretty as a picture" home offers 3bdrms/2bths, spacious living and dining rooms, updated kitchen and baths and a landscaped garden, ideal for entertaining! I keep returning to homes in the Glenview where value is easily captured.
