A Neighborhood for Every Lifestyle
This charming home has been loved by the same family for nearly 4 decades. It is now ready for a new owner to update and make it their own. It’s a fantastic opportunity in Central Piedmont steps away from top rated K-12 schools, parks, the recreation department, police and fire. The formal living and dining rooms have beautiful hardwood floors with large windows and lovely views. French doors from the family room and kitchen open up to a large and private backyard. Come see the potential, the possibilities are endless.
Piedmont, a two-square-mile city within the borders of Oakland, was incorporated in 1907 and was known then as “The City of Millionaires” because there were more millionaires per square mile residing there than in any other U.S. city. Today, their large, estate-like homes are still standing in the heart of Piedmont, reminding residents of its glitzy past. Homes in Piedmont range from those estate-like homes in central Piedmont with expansive grounds to more modest homes on the edges of town. Well-manicured landscapes prevail and the city’s stringent permitting guidelines ensure all of the homes maintain their original flavor.
The commercial area of the town is small, featuring several banks and one gas station. Mulberry’s Market, a specialty food store with ready-made meals, caters to gourmet taste buds and is the frequent morning coffee stop for parents and an after-school hot spot for kids. Piedmont’s proximity to Oakland’s many big-city amenities ensures Piedmonters will not miss out on the latest restaurants or first-run movies, and its several well-maintained parks and playing fields provide ample opportunity for sports year-round.
The sense of community is strong, as witnessed by the large turnout for the annual Fourth of July parade that happens each year down Highland Avenue.The Piedmont Recreation Center offers a central gathering place for residents. Available for rental, it is a frequent setting for community events and parties.The beautiful grounds provide a wonderful place to hang out and play, and the wooded trail connecting the Center to the high school is the best place to take your dog to play.
A casual carpool zone on Oakland Avenue, along with proximity to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District buses, offer workers convenient commute options.
Pride in community involvement, coveted K-12 public schools, movie-nights in the park, village-living surrounded by a diverse and thriving metropolis, easy access to downtown Oakland or San Francisco, and a throwback to a time when kids could ride bikes and joyfully walk with friends to the park, are just a few of the reasons people love to live in Piedmont.
