Hilltop Retreat

Dramatic hilltop contemporary with enchanting bay and canyon views.

A beautifully appointed living room and graceful dining room welcome the visitor.

A generous kitchen answers every need, with Dacor, Thermador, and Bosch appliances; sleek stone counters and eating bar; custom cabinetry; pantry space; and a marvelous balcony for dining al fresco and soaking in the view.

The kitchen opens to a handsome family room with fireplace. Steps away are the den and half-bath.

All of the bedrooms and bathrooms are all on the same level one graceful flight down, adding simplicity and elegance to this hillside showcase. The sumptuous master suite includes a private balcony and a swank designer closet. A second suite is perfect appointed for guests.

Zip up the hill from Montclair in minutes and pull into a showroom quality garage.

After a long day in the city, this posh retreat pulls you away from the rest of the world and steeps you in refined comfort.

Close to Huckleberry, Sibley, and Redwood Parks - a cyclist's dream and a hiker's paradise.


Tucked away in the wooded hills and winding streets above Oakland, Montclair is a small community with an appealing central shopping district.

Sizable custom homes of recent construction, along with a mix of Mediterranean, Craftsman, and contemporary-style homes mostly dating from the mid-20th century are situated on forested and often sloping lots, offering an elegant retreat from the city. Decks and views are typical, with rare flat yards a coveted find.

The Montclair Business District is a throwback to a simpler time before strip malls, megamalls, and big-box stores. Residents can find everything they need, from dry cleaning and groceries to restaurants. Local restaurant favorites include the Montclair Egg Shop, Flipper’s Gourmet Burgers, and Crogan’s Bar and Grill. Gourmet specialty items are available at Le Bonbon, and Farmstead Wine and Cheese. Coffee shops, a popular lunchtime taqueria, as well as Indian, Thai, and Japanese all rub elbows.

The Sunday farmers' market provides fresh local produce and baked goods.

Montclair is home to fine-arts festivals throughout the year and a jazz festival in the late summer that enlivens the street scene.

Proximity to outdoors is a highlight in the Montclair hills, with trailheads to Redwood Regional Park, Huckleberry, and Sibley parks.
