Rates from USD $6888 | Monthly

House | Entire Home
Available Dates:
From September 15, 2023 until May 5, 2024


My home is nestled in the peaceful surroundings of Piedmont Pines, the hills above the adorable Village of Montclair. The home is walking distance from the beautiful Redwood Regional park. This stunning, 4BR, 2.5 Bath craftsman home was built in the 1930’s. It combines classic charm with the touch of modern upgrades. The vaulted LR ceilings, large DR and Chef's kitchen with 6 burner Wolf stove & all new and modern stainless steel appliances make this home an oasis for anyone. The split level home also provides the ultimate flexibility of living with 2 BR's and a full bath on both the 2nd & 3rd floors. On the 2nd floor, one room is often used as an office but the couch does convert into a queen size bed if you desire an extra sleeping room. There is also an extra bonus room downstairs that can be used as a workout room or child's play room or throw down an air mattress if you have a guest in town. Three outdoor patios and a fully fenced yard provide variety of outdoor space as you follow the sun or shade throughout the day. There is a BBQ in front patio. Full laundry room downstairs as well. The town of Montclair is vibrant and safe and locals are welcoming. There is a farmers market every Sunday. Good local restaurants and several grocery stores, a local library, yoga and pilates studios as well as gyms are in town. The fact that you are walking distance from some of the largest regional parks is a bonus if you like the outdoors for hiking or biking. You are also just a 5 min drive away from Lake Merritt and Piedmont, as well as the Grand Lake theater and community. Just down the hill are public transportation buses into the City, Berkeley or downtown Oakland. And Rockridge BART is less than a 10 min drive. On a good day during non-commute times, you can make it into downtown SF in 20 min. The home is close to major freeways, 580, 13, 24 and 80. I am a former corporate Agile teacher and strategy consultant / executive coach for 25+ years. I then transitioned over to healthcare advocacy, preventative health and most recently am an international speaker on the topic of the neuroscience of sound, sound therapy and ancient healing traditions, and broader consciousness access. I am assisting with my elderly mother in the North Bay after my father passed away - so I have opened up my home for a year while I spend time with her. My home is in exceptional condition. And is still decorated with my own beautiful and cherished furniture. I was given Superhost status with only 5 star ratings from guests from another app --whom are always incredibly complementary of my home stating how cozy and beautiful it is (both inside and out). They say it feels like a ‘home away from home’. This is not your normal rental, it is far too nice. Because I care so much about my space, I also offer cleaning services and regular garden services to ensure the home is maintained. For longer term stays, ideally not pets, but a dog I may be willing to house, absolutely no cats due to allergies. I really only want a couple or family or people that are going to care for my home as if were their own, or even better. Contact me for even more photos, since this app doesn't allow so many.
