Storybook charm meets garden romance at this 1938 Tudor, nestled on a 10,000-SF level lot in Sequoyah Hills. The artistry of builder C.M. Tiegland, one of the Claremont's noted builders, is revealed in hand-hewn beams, dramatic roofline, and terraced gardens gracing this 4-BR, 2-ba home plus carriage house. From gleaming hardwood floors to stamped plaster walls, period and modern details accent timeless beauty, indoors and out. Both the fireplaced living room and large updated kitchen open through French doors to a stone patio, shaded by a trellised explosion of wisteria. Main floor bonus/bedroom has a full bath. Three additional bedrooms and full bath up the grand wooden stairs. The detached 2-story cottage, perfect for office, studio or guest space, overlooks a sunken garden with stone fireplace. Mature grounds and entertaining spaces invite play, peace and laughter with family and friends! Three distinct outdoor entertaining spaces and gated driveway capable of parking up to eight vehicles. Steps from the new Oak Knoll retail-residential development, enjoy easy freeway access to Montclair, Lake Merritt, Downtown Oakland, San Leandro and beyond.
