79 Oakmont Avenue
This wonderful home, in desirable Piedmont California, is set up above the street by a majestic oak with serene outlooks and a nice sense of privacy. The formal dining and living rooms have the lovely original windows that let the light pour in and the original fireplace tile (new gas insert). The updated eat-in kitchen opens to the dining room, and the bonus/entertainment room, giving a nice flow for formal or casual entertaining. The split level floor plan gives nice separation of the bedrooms while still being close by. The primary suite has a stunning bath with radiant heated floor and large sliding door to the yard. The yard and inviting decks let you enjoy the sun and water/city views. The bonus lower level, with separate entrance, would be ideal for a home office, studio or guests. Many upgrades!! Near by the highly regarded Piedmont schools, Kindergarten-12th, Piedmont Rec center with pool and tennis, Lake Merritt and, Lakeshore & Grand Avenue businesses.

Piedmont, a two-square-mile city within the borders of Oakland, was incorporated in 1907 and was known then as “The City of Millionaires” because there were more millionaires per square mile residing there than in any other U.S. city. Today, their large, estate-like homes are still standing in the heart of Piedmont, reminding residents of its glitzy past. Homes in Piedmont range from those estate-like homes in central Piedmont with expansive grounds to more modest homes on the edges of town. Well-manicured landscapes prevail and the city’s stringent permitting guidelines ensure all of the homes maintain their original flavor.
The commercial area of town is small, featuring several banks and one gas station. Mulberry’s Market, a specialty food store with ready-made meals, caters to gourmet taste buds and is the frequent morning coffee stop for parents and after-school hot spot for kids. Piedmont’s proximity to Oakland’s many big-city amenities ensures Piedmonters will not miss out on the latest restaurants or first-run movies.
The sense of community is strong, as witnessed by the large turnout for the annual Fourth of July parade that happens each year down Highland Avenue. The Piedmont Recreation Center offers a central gathering place for residents. Available for rental, it is the frequent setting for community events and parties. The beautiful grounds provide a wonderful place to hang out and play, and the wooded trail connecting the Center to the high school is the best place to take your dog to play.
A casual carpool zone on Oakland Avenue, along with proximity to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District buses, offer workers convenient commute options.
Pride in community involvement and village living are just a few of the reasons people love to live in Piedmont.
