Charming Mid-Century Retreat

3 Beds      2 Baths      $1,149,800

255 Capricorn Ave. Oakland CA 94611

As you arrive at your new home at 255 Capricorn, plug your car into the charging station, open the stylish wood gates and step into your sanctuary.  The charming courtyard, hidden from the streets is a place to enjoy al fresco dining, drinks, conversations with guests or simply a place to relax after a long day.

The entire home floods in natural light from its many skylights, walls of windows, and wonderfully positioned hillside location.  Upon entry, you are immediately graced with amorous light from the skylight above. The upper level of the home encapsulates modern living, with the allure and serenity that Montclair offers. Both open and sun drenched, the floor plan allows for the flow of conversation, laughter, and energy throughout.  The spacious living room is airy with vaulted ceilings, and warm with a wood burning fireplace.

Connecting the entertainment to the heart of the home, the kitchen gleams with white subway tile, stainless steel appliances and striking quartz countertops.  Whether you decide to indulge in a delectable meal in the dining room, or open the French doors to the exterior courtyard and step outside to eat in the nights breeze, your meals setting will not disappoint.

The expansive primary bedroom is well suited for the shopper at heart, with an incredible walk-in closet sure to hold your prized wardrobe and classic shoe collection.  Your en-suite bathroom is well appointed for one or more, equipped with a generous double vanity and enormous glass encased shower.  To take the space up a notch, there is an attached sunroom/office, which is not only the perfect WFH space, but offers access to a balcony so that calls and morning coffee can be enjoyed while taking in the lush scenic views.

Make way down the stairs to the second level of the home, where two substantial guest bedrooms are adjoined by a Jack and Jill bathroom.   There is a fantastic laundry area tucked away on this level for ease of use.  Guest bedroom one, substantial in size and similar to the primary above, has a sunroom/office combo with deck access. This creates multiple working spaces where friends and family can enjoy quiet time away or have the ability to create the perfect excel spreadsheet for a client, without being cramped together.  The second airy and bright guest bedroom is spacious and it too has deck access and basks in sunlight.

A spectacular deck on this second level nearly spans the length of the home, creating ample space to socialize, entertain, unwind and take in the panoramic views that can be found here in the green hillsides of Montclair.  Do not miss one of the most exciting and captivating parts of the home, something that is extremely rare in the area – a third outdoor level that boast a gorgeous green yard. Perfectly situated for kids to play, pets to run free, and sunbathers to delight, this area is a true jewel in the hills!
