Simple, luminous bungalow near Dracena Park!
Perched above the street with windows all around, light is the primary adornment in this easy, updated home.  Spacious living and dining rooms with fireplace and enchanting built-ins. Two bedrooms with ample closet space are nicely separated by a classic tiled bathroom.  The sunny eat-in kitchen is oriented toward the jewel-green yard.  Balanced and elemental, the yard is a bit of heaven; earthy mahogany walls and deck, waterfall shower splashing on stone, the spare vessel of the fire bowl and the arch of open sky, grounded by cool grass underfoot.

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.
