Montclair Retreat

about this home's










10 El Patio Street is on a cul-de-sac a short distance from Montclair Village, with its shops and restaurants and other conveniences, and only a few minutes from highly rated local schools. And it’s only a few more minutes to Rockridge, Elmwood or down the hill to Glenview. The initial and lasting impression of 10 El Patio Street is one of privacy and seclusion – a place far from the madding crowd. Close to everything; yet a world apart. 

The Living Room’s vaulted ceiling and beams transition to classic beadboard ceiling and crown molding in the Sunroom and the beamed wood ceiling of the Formal Dining Room. French Doors on either side of the fireplace lead out to a private, intimate courtyard patio with its own fireplace.
The Kitchen retains its charm with a vintage Wedgewood stove, red oak hardwood flooring and a pretty view of the back courtyard patio. Tastefully updated with Carrara marble counters, white subway tile backsplash and thoughtfully selected light fixtures. The stainless steel Franke extra-deep sink, fridge and Bosche dishwasher complete the modern amenities.
Each bathroom is unique: the wainscoted ensuite bath off the front bedroom, the tiled hall bath with a large tub, and the conveniently located powder room next to the laundry. Common to all are the shuttered windows and quality fixtures from brands such as Kohler, Porcher, Toto, Moen and Grohe.
The two spacious bedrooms feature classic period crown molding, hardwood floors, excellent closet space and shutters at the windows.
The Sunroom is, quite simply, the room you never want to leave! There is in an abundance of natural light. French Doors and tall windows look out on the private expanse of the front garden, its large mature trees and across to the detached studio.
The large office/studio just across the lawn from the main house was built in 2009 with permit. Carefully designed to mirror the sunroom it also features an additional storage room. The French Doors and windows offer garden outlooks, the ceiling is vaulted and the floor finish is stained concrete.
It is rare to find a level lot and expansive lawn in Montclair. This lush, wooded setting is beautifully landscaped with patios, brick walkways, raised flower beds, mature bushes and trees.
The fully enclosed front and back yards are a delight to the eyes and restorative to the soul. And it seems only fitting to have two patios, front and back, on El Patio Street!

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, Flipper’s Gourmet Burgers, and Crogan’s Montclair Restaurant. Gourmet specialty items are available at A.G. Ferrari, 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. 

Nearby Parks and Trails

Head down Mountain Boulevard a short 2-block distance and take a right turn under Highway 13 for a pleasant stroll down Sausal Creek and Dimond Canyon.
Or (also 2 blocks away) turn left at Joaquin Miller Court and you’re at the lower trailhead of Palos Colorados Trail, which follows Palo Seco Creek up into Joaquin Miller Park.  From the meadow and its popular picnic areas, the trail options may not be limitless but they certainly seem so.
There is so much more than hiking and biking in this huge city park.  Picnic areas abound.  Children and parents enjoy the playground and ball field along Joaquin Miller Road.  There is also a popular off-leash dog park.  And don’t forget to treat yourself to a summertime play or concert at Woodminster Amphitheater.
If you cross Skyline Boulevard from Joaquin Miller Park, you enter Redwood Regional Park. At this crossing you are close to Roberts Recreational Area and Chabot Space and Science Center. Roberts is known for its especially fabulous playground, ball field and picnic areas. Further north is Huckleberry Botanical Preserve and Sibley/Round Top (and beyond that, Tilden Park and Wildcat Canyon!).  South, you can make your way, across Redwood Road, into Anthony Chabot Park.  East you can go down into the canyon and up again; and, if you’d like, EBMUD’s gorgeous Redwood Trail will take you to and beyond the intersection of Pinehurst and Canyon Roads.
So close to everything – including recreation, rest and relaxation!
