Scandinavian Lodge Living in Montclair

Live the hyygge life in this modern interpretation of a Scandinavian Lodge in Piedmont Pines. After a thoughtful makeover, this spacious 3,876 square-foot home skillfully mixes Scandinavian simplicity, modern elements and cozy details like warm wood treatments to create a relaxed treehouse setting surrounded by wooded views. Vaulted ceilings with tongue and groove treatment and skylights contribute to the overall soothing feeling found throughout the home. A large, open entertaining level welcomes you into a light and bright space accented by a brand-new kitchen, dining room, living room, cozy sitting area and full bath. A deck, which expands the entire length of the living space, offers yet another space to extend parties and gatherings under a canopy of trees. A two-story bedroom, with a separate entrance on this level, provides a great setup for a home office with multiple work spaces. Downstairs, there are three bedrooms and three bathrooms with a laundry room. The new master suite is a true haven with a large sitting area, walk-in closet and spa-like bathroom with dual sinks, a free standing soaking tub with views, a stall shower with rain-head and a private deck, which opens the master suite to wonderful natural light and the beauty of nature. Below, there is also an in-law suite with a separate entrance, bathroom, living room, balcony and kitchenette complete with sink, fridge and cooktop. It could be converted to a legal ADU with minimal effort....or just live as a great guest room, family room and hangout space. A large driveway and oversized garage can easily accommodate four cars, if needed. Abundant storage and closet space are added bonuses. Located in Montclair, the residence is close to Highways 13 and 24, Montclair Village, the Hills Swim Club, parks, trails, schools and more.

Floor Plans


Nestled amongst the pine trees in the upper Oakland hills, the friendly Montclair District maintains a refreshing and laid back mountain atmosphere reminiscent of Mill Valley in Marin County. Winding streets dotted with trees and gardens bursting with flowers lead to large homes hidden among mini-forests that look out over the distant bay.

Adding to its rural appeal, Montclair is tidy, very residential, and decidedly a bedroom community, yet exciting enough for the active crowd. Close to many East Bay parks, it offers endless biking and hiking opportunities to enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery.

Montclair's real estate runs up and down the canyons, and the architecture is designed to showcase the natural character of the area. Some lot sizes can stretch into acres. Styles of homes range from large Craftsman bungalows, shingled cottages, and Prairie homes, to period revivals, ranch, and split-level style homes from the 50s, 60s and 70s.

Fernwood is one of the many beautiful winding, flora-rich neighborhoods that make Montclair the serene oasis it is. The Storybook Houses of the Frenwood Walking Tour visits a favorite trick-or-treating route in Oakland. The tour takes place every October through some of the most beautiful and well-crafted homes in the area.

 At the northern edge of the neighborhood is Lake Temescal Park, a superb venue for picnics, Frisbee games, and short woodsy walks. The commercial center is Montclair Village, a quaint area of small shops serving most local needs. The Montclair Egg Shop on Medau off just off of Mountain Blvd. is a fun and whimsical stop for a hearty breakfast and Melt Massage is a great place to get relaxed and reinvigorated.

The storybook tour of Oakland continues daily down Mountain Blvd. at the Oakland Library Montclair Branch. This beautiful building offers a cozy and magical children's reading room for story time. The original 900 square foot library was built in 1930 in the Oakland hills, about half a mile from the just emerging Montclair Village. To meet the rising demand for children's services, two additions have since transformed Montclair Library into a busy 3,900 square foot branch serving a well-established, bustling community.

Other attractions include the Chabot Space and Science Center, a cultural arts center, a weekly farmer's market, a delightful public park offering fun for everyone from toddlers to tennis players, and annual street fairs in the village center.
