5/3 Montclair View Home with Accessory Unit

$1,495,000 5901 Mazuela Dr, Oakland, CA 94611

Will you have morning coffee amidst cascading wildflowers at the garden perch overlooking a 3-Bridge View? Or will it be wine at sunset, taking in City Lights from your private IPE decks, either on the main floor or off the master suite? At 5901 Mazuela, every day feels like a getaway. Wake up warmed by the romantic woodstove in your Tahoe-inspired, Cathedral-ceilinged primary suite – a full floor of comforts: sitting room, dressing room, spa bath, and delicious views pouring through the west-facing window-wall.

On the main floor, friends and family gather in a classy chef’s kitchen, with stone counters, site-built custom cabinets, double wall ovens, and commercial-grade gas cooktop. Enjoyment spills into a grand great room, through another window-wall, onto another expansive view-facing deck. Children and pets, lawn and gardens thrive in the level yard.

There’s room for everyone with three mainfloor bedrooms, one perfectly suited to WFH as it opens to the front patio and gardens, & a renovated bath, in addition to the primary suite upstairs. Warm wood floors and custom trimmed window seats with integral storage add charm and utility to the bedrooms; fresh paint throughout, and oodles of sunlight,  brighten the whole house.

The lower level provides access to the over-sized garage, storage area,  and studio inlaw suite. To help you envision the inlaw unit as a full 1-bedroom, 1-bath apartment, we have provided (see documents in this website as well as in the disclosures package) architectural renderings illustrating how to incorporate excess garage space into the unit to allow for a separate bedroom, while retaining the 1-car garage parking and allowing the studio to provide expanded kitchen and living space – all within existing space.   

The property has a new HVAC system, including new central air conditioning. Electrical and plumbing are mostly updated.

Solving a conundrum posed by so many Montclair properties on narrow, twisting streets, this property has been thoughtfully re-oriented to provide plenty of off-street parking. There are two entrances to this property -- the front on Mazuela Drive (one lot north of Colton Blvd), and via the alley in the rear (off of Mendoza Ave.), where the garage and paved off-street parking has been added. To access from the rear, turn from Colton onto Mendoza, then make an immediate right turn into the alley, which ends at this lot's parking areas and garage. There is a parking pad at the lower, west end of the lot, and extended paver area to use either as patio or additional parking next to the driveway and garage.

From the driveway and pavers, you can ascend to the main-level deck and enter the main living area through French doors, or go through the gate on the garage side of the house and up exterior stairs to the front door facing Mazuela. If entering from Mazuela, use the original front door, or you can take the side stairs down to the yard, or follow the deck around to descend from the deck to the yard/lower level.

Either way, you’ll love what you find in and around this Mid-Century gem just above Montclair Village!
