Rising above Wildwood Avenue sits this stylish, light-filled home beautifully remodeled with a contemporary lifestyle in mind. With four-bedrooms and three baths, this home benefits from significant renovation and incorporates the best of its original Mediterranean style with a more open floor plan. There is a newly redone Junior Accessory Dwelling Unit on the property, offering interior access from the main house as well as private ingress and egress from the outdoors. A tranquil, comfortable home, 118 Wildwood provides ease in everyday living and an ideal atmosphere for gathering friends and family.
Upon entering, one is greeted with a view of the living room, with its large arched window and fireplace, splendid architectural focal points in a space perfect for relaxing and entertaining. The spacious renovated kitchen and dining room are also visible from the entryway. The kitchen features a large center island and breakfast bar for open-plan dining, windows that flank the entire back wall and doors that look directly onto a private patio and garden. There are two existing patio areas just steps from the kitchen, one with a pergola covered by mature grapevines, and a more secluded patio near the lawn.
The main level consists of the living room, kitchen, dining room, three bedrooms and two baths, all easily accessible thanks to a charming configuration. The primary bedroom looks out onto the back patio and has a stylish ensuite bathroom. Detailed with custom cabinetry, dual sinks with open walk-in showers and beautiful herringbone tiling, the finishes in this bathroom are impeccable. Modern lighting and ceiling-height mirrors further broaden the space. The additional two bedrooms, both conveniently located, share the second remodeled bathroom.
Saunter down a few steps and you will find the lovely and spacious bonus area, which enjoys exterior access and is also easily reached from the main portion of the house. Nearby is the laundry room, which opens onto the freshly rebuilt Junior Accessory Dwelling Unit, organized in a way that allows it to be either independent of or integrated into the rest of the home, and flexible enough to suit multiple needs. The main room of the JADU is airy and bright, and opens to the outdoors. It can serve as a second suite or office. Adjacent is the food prep area and the third bathroom. Recently engineered and reconstructed, the garage provides interior access to the home and allows for ample storage. On the outside, modern stone walls, mature olive trees, an established irrigation system and lighting provide beautiful ambiance.
Piedmont is known for its top-rated schools, and this home is close to many shopping and dining destinations.
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. Residents enjoy the diverse architecture and styles of homes, whether bungalows, mediterraneans, craftsman, large or small. Well-manicured landscapes prevail and the city’s stringent permitting guidelines ensure all of the homes maintain their original flavor.
The commercial area of 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 after-school hot spot for kids. Piedmont’s proximity to Oakland’s many amenities ensures Piedmonters will not miss out on the latest restaurants, movies, artisanal foods and shops.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 the 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 convenient commute options.
Pride in community involvement and village living are just a few of the reasons people love to live in Piedmont.
