Sited on an elevated corner lot with the classic Tudor half-timbered façade, sweeping slate roof and ornamental chimney, 35 Muir Avenue makes an impressive statement. The gracious stone walkway to the spacious entry passes banks of lovely leaded windows. This home is clearly a rare combination of beautiful architecture and gracious modern living.
Step into the elegant foyer with its’ sweeping staircase and giant leaded windows and look up to the surrounding second level balcony and wood beamed ceiling. The high-quality craftsmanship and superior building materials of the 1930s are clearly present. So many of the original architectural features are still intact, carved doors and arches, high coffered wood ceilings and more beautiful leaded windows. The formal rooms are spacious and grand, the breakfast room and library are charming, cozy and inviting.
The kitchen is modern and well laid out with three sink areas, a central island and beautiful storage plus a charming original breakfast room attached. Four generous bedrooms on the second level with 3 oversized bathrooms. A 5th bedroom suite in a separate wing for guests or an au pair. Extras include a large family room open to the side courtyard, a sunroom, the library and an office. There is a double car garage with adjoining workroom plus a huge attic waiting to be developed.
Located in the City of Piedmont, you’ll enjoy access to City’s top rated public schools (K-12) and the services of the Piedmont Police and Fire departments. You are close to several vibrant neighborhoods for shopping, dining, entertainment and have easy access to great transportation options.

PIEDMONT IS AN INCORPORATED CITY OF ABOUT 11,000 RESIDENTS LOCATED IN THE INNER EAST BAY, ONLY 10 MILES FROM THE FINANCIAL DISTRICT OF SAN FRANCISCO. PIEDMONT RESIDENTS ENJOY THE BENEFITS AND SECURITY OF A SMALL TOWN, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME BEING IN THE MIDST OF THE URBAN AMENITIES OF OAKLAND, BERKELEY, AND SAN FRANCISCO. THE K-12 SCHOOL SYSTEM IS NATIONALLY RANKED, AND THE CITY HAS ITS OWN POLICE FORCE, FIRE DEPARTMENT, AND PARAMEDICS. MANY CHILDREN WALK TO SCHOOL, AND EXCELLENT SPORTS, ARTS AND RECREATIONAL PROGRAMS MAKE IT AN EXCEPTIONAL PLACE TO RAISE A FAMILY.
SEVERAL NEIGHBORHOOD RESTAURANTS AND RETAIL DISTRICTS SURROUND PIEDMONT AND ARE EASY TO REACH, WITH VERY LITTLE OF THE TRAFFIC AND PARKING HASSLES OF SAN FRANCISCO. PIEDMONT, COLLEGE, LAKESHORE, AND GRAND AVENUES AND THE MONTCLAIR DISTRICT ARE JUST OUTSIDE TOWN LIMITS. OAKLAND’S THRIVING UPTOWN DISTRICT, DOWNTOWN BERKELEY, AND JACK LONDON SQUARE ARE ONLY MINUTES AWAY. MANY RESIDENTS WALK TO THEIR NEAREST RESTAURANT DISTRICT.
PIEDMONT’S CENTRAL LOCATION WITHIN THE BAY AREA MINIMIZES COMMUTING. SAN FRANCISCO IS VERY CLOSE AND ACCESSIBLE BY BART, BUS, OR CASUAL CARPOOL. ACCESS IS EASY TO THE PENINSULA AND MARIN, AND THE I-680 CORRIDOR IS A REVERSE COMMUTE. THE EAST BAY LOCATION MAKES ACCESS TO THE WINE COUNTRY, TAHOE, AND THE SIERRAS MUCH QUICKER THAN FROM SAN FRANCISCO OR THE PENINSULA. THE USER-FRIENDLY AND UNCONGESTED OAKLAND AIRPORT IS LESS THAN 30 MINUTES AWAY.
THE COMMERCIAL AREA AT THE CENTER OF TOWN IS SMALL BUT FEATURES MULBERRY’S, A SPECIALTY MARKET AND COFFEE SHOP WITH READY-MADE MEALS. YOU WILL ALMOST ALWAYS SEE NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS DURING A QUICK STOP AT MULBERRY’S.
SENSE OF COMMUNITY IS STRONG IN PIEDMONT. THE ENTIRE TOWN TURNS OUT FOR THE ANNUAL FOURTH OF JULY PARADE ON HIGHLAND AVENUE, WHICH IS FOLLOWED BY A CONCERT IN THE PARK AND BLOCK PARTIES THROUGHOUT THE CITY. THE PIEDMONT COMMUNITY CENTER OFFERS A CENTRAL GATHERING PLACE FOR RESIDENTS. AVAILABLE FOR RENT, IT FREQUENTLY HOSTS COMMUNITY EVENTS, WEDDINGS, 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. PRIDE IN COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT AND VILLAGE LIVING ARE JUST A FEW OF THE REASONS PEOPLE LOVE LIVING IN PIEDMONT.
