Experience nature’s tranquility on this verdant estate-like site of almost one acre. A special feature is the rapid access to Montclair Village and top-rated schools while living in a serene park atmosphere. This historic Arts and Crafts style home has been carefully maintained and updated with modern systems with the beautiful details of a bygone era preserved or replicated. From the brick pathways the welcoming sun porch provides a vestibule for entering the house where the focal point of a massive mantel-piece above the fireplace awaits. Numerous vintage glass-front built-ins are found in the living room, formal dining room and breakfast room (office). The natural woodwork and exquisite doors convey the Craftsman details in an elegant manner. All one-level living is possible with three bedrooms and a charming bath that are located in a separate wing. The well-designed updated kitchen with its high-end gas range and stone countertops is both handsome and practical, and a breakfast island is included. The master bedroom retreat has private deck accessed through French doors to enjoy awe-inspiring woodland vistas, a large walk-in closet and capacious bath with both spa-sized shower and antique claw-foot soaking tub. The nearby large laundry room with long counter tops, sink and ample cabinets doubles nicely as a crafts room. The level yard and garden are filled with flowers, native plants and magnificent trees with doors leading out from five main floor rooms, and from the master suite. There are three large redwood decks with level access. Explore the beauty of the lower stone patio, fruit tree orchard and the creek shores. Much of the lot is fenced, lit and 12-zone irrigated to allow for cultivated and naturalized areas to stand in harmony.
