Nestled in a favored cul-de-sac off Broadway Terrace in the Montclair hills, 6233 Virgo Road has been stylishly renovated and lovingly maintained. A one of kind home with sweeping and dramatic views of the San Francisco Bay, Bay and Golden Gate Bridges, Mt. Tam, and the Oakland Hills. This is California living at its best with an incredible connection to the outdoor spaces and sited on an over 14,000 sqft lot.

The interior spaces have vaulted ceilings with decorative rafters and an abundance of natural light from the nearly floor to ceiling windows and doors throughout. An open concept floor plan with seamless views and access to outdoor decks, a spacious front porch and the abounding garden areas. The living room is centered around a gas fireplace with a  slate hearth, custom light fixtures, an in-wall Polk speaker system, designer paint and newer solid ‘Shaw’ wood floors. The dining room is open to the kitchen and back deck an ideal configuration for entertaining. The updated kitchen has a Carrera marble backsplash, soft grey quartz counters, stainless appliances, adaptable lighting and ample cabinetry.  Also on this main level is a spacious en-suite bedroom with private balcony and ‘California Closets’ custom walk-in. This ensuite bath has a greenhouse of windows that again showcase the spectacular views. There is a freestanding soaking tub, double vanity and separate walk-in shower with bench. Updated throughout with modern finishes, designer lighting and state of the art fixtures.

The lower level has the additional two bedrooms, a bonus room with flexible space that could be used as a family room, office or home gym. On this level also resides a dedicated laundry room with additional storage cabinetry. One of the lower level bedrooms is a second en-suite with another beautifully appointed bath renovation. All of these lower rooms have direct access to the expansive and verdant garden.

The property is sited on an over 14,000 sqft  parcel with various level areas, patios, pathways, decks, vegetable beds with raspberry, blueberry and tomatoes plus a prolific fruit orchard with mature grape vines, plums, olive, cherry, apple, fig and fuyu persimmon trees. Surrounding the plethora of edible delights are majestic redwoods, oak and Japanese maple trees which contribute to the privacy and serenity of this setting. Bask in the sun or shade of the canopy, garden and watch the sun set over the San Francisco Bay in the peace of your own private retreat.

There is a detached two-garage as well as off street driveway parking and a lower room with additional storage or workshop space. Although you may feel off the beaten path you’re just minutes from all that the local shopping districts of both Montclair and Rockridge have to offer.

Neighborhood Gallery

6233 Virgo Road

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 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.
