About the House

6207 Crown Avenue is a charming 3 bedroom, 2 bath Montclair home that will warm your heart and feel like home the moment you step in the door. The home was built in 1929 and measures at 1833 square feet. The curb appeal of this Tudor home is undeniable, and it’s clear something special awaits the minute you lay eyes on it!

The rustic stone steps guide you to the front door. On your way to the front door, pass one of two lovely outdoor spaces complete with colorful plantings, stacked stone walls, a grassy lawn and a sitting area that is a wonderful place to relax at the end of a long day.

The formal entry greets you and ushers you into the charming living room with its rustic wood beams, cozy gas fireplace and beautiful wood windows that look out to the front yard and beyond. The architectural details in this room are unparalleled and difficult to find in Montclair. French doors open to the front yard providing terrific indoor/outdoor flow. Cozy up with a good book and prepare to relax!

A few steps up and find yourself in the sizable remodeled eat-in kitchen. The custom built dining room table has bench seating that doubles as storage. The sunny eat-in kitchen is a chef’s dream with marble countertops, hardwood floors, a Viking gas stove and plenty of storage. The kitchen window provides views of the South Bay making doing dishes a pleasure rather than a chore! The washer and dryer are conveniently located in the kitchen as well.

A side door in the kitchen leads out to the walkway that takes you to the backyard. A stone patio, a grassy area, lemon tree and South Bay views make this a great place to hang out in warm weather. The lemon tree which provides two to three crops a year will keep you in lemonade year-round! This is true California living!

Down the main hallway find two bedrooms and the main bathroom. The remodeled main bath is conveniently located between the two bedrooms and has a standalone shower, a cool claw foot tub and vintage inspired tile.

Up a flight of stairs is the master bedroom suite. The suite includes a wonderful space that is perfect for a sitting room, office or nursery. This area has a large picture window that looks out to the hills and beyond. The bedroom has several built-ins eliminating the need for dressers and several closets including a walk-in. The bathroom with it’s skylight and stall shower is located between the two areas. All windows look out to the trees…it’s just like sleeping in a treehouse!

On the practical side the home has a detached two car garage which is rare in Montclair. It also has a custom-built place for the waste cans which will be appreciated on trash pick-up days.

This is also a terrific location. Just minutes from Montclair Village where you will find shops, services, restaurants and grocery stores. Make sure to take in the farmers market every Sunday. There are also several street fairs each year featuring art, food and music. Nearby trails will make for great weekend adventures and Montclair Swim Club is just minutes away.

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 Montclair Egg Shop,  Perle,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.
