6326 Thornhill Drive is a warm and inviting 2+ bedroom, 2 bath Montclair home in a terrific location with a cool mid-century vibe.

It is evident from the moment you drive up, this is an amazing home. Brown shingled and surrounded by nature, this home elicits relaxation from the outside in.

The formal entry greets you as you enter the home. To the right is ample plus space that currently houses the cutest kitchenette we have ever seen with white subway tile backsplash, an efficiency refrigerator and a small stove. Off the plus space find a bathroom making this a practical space for guests, an office, or in-laws. The additional storage in this room will also come in handy.

Up the stairs find the main living area, two bedrooms, the second bath, dining area and kitchen.

The open living room features vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and a cozy gas fireplace with a raised cement hearth. The room takes in plenty of natural light from the windows in the front of the house.

The dining area is separated by a small wall that has a custom made beautiful Elm wood top with a natural edge that is truly a work of art.

The dining area has French doors that lead out to the back yard where you will find a brick patio and raised deck with a hot tub- the place to warm up on those chilly winter evenings. 

The kitchen is adjacent to the dining area and looks out to the yard. A Viking gas stove, Kitchen Aid double door refrigerator and dishwasher, cherry cabinets that provide plenty of storage, a skylight and ample counter space make this a kitchen any chef would enjoy. 

The two bedrooms and second bath are just down the hall. Both bedrooms have shoji screened closet doors and hardwood floors. The back bedroom has two built-ins that provide additional storage and the front bedroom has a bay window. Both bedrooms have verdant outlooks that provide a sense of privacy and calm.

The attached garage houses the laundry and cabinets for all your storage needs.

Just down Thornhill you will find Thornhill Nursey where you can find all the tools, plants and accessories for your green thumb.

Roughly a mile away is Montclair Village with numerous restaurants, shops, grocery stores, books stores, vets, a public library, a park, tennis courts and the obligatory coffee shops. The newest restaurant addition, Perle, has been highly reviewed and is a nice place for a night out.

Also, just minutes away is Highway 13 and a Transbay bus stop making this a dream location for commuters.

6326 Thornhill Drive is a wonderful home in a convenient location that is a great place to call home!




Tucked away in the wooded hills and winding streets above Oakland, Montclair is a small community with an appealing central shopping district. Sizable custom homes, along with a mix of Mediterranean, Craftsman, and contemporary-style homes are situated on forested lots, offering an elegant retreat from the city.

The Montclair Business District is a throwback to a simpler time before strip malls, megamalls, and big-box stores. Residents can find everything they need, from dry cleaning and groceries to restaurants.

Local restaurant favorites include the Perle, Daughters Thai, Montclair Egg Shop, Flipper’s Gourmet Burgers, and Crogan’s Montclair Restaurant. Gourmet specialty items are available at Le Bonbon, and Farmstead Wine and Cheese. A farmers market on Sundays provides fresh local produce and baked goods.

Montclair is home to fine-arts festivals throughout the year and a jazz festival in the late summer that enlivens the street scene.
