The best of everything! Mid-Century Home on the Piedmont Side Of Montclair, Oakland

Yesterday as I compiled the homes to view that were open on broker's tour, I was urged by a colleague to put 45 Lane Court on my list. (This home is currently listed with Nancy Rothman of Pacific Union.)  My colleague had heard that this property was a piece of art, and boy the rumors were right!   Set back from the street, this house immediately grabbed my heart, as I spotted the copper garage door perfectly patina-ed.  This home has the vault ceiling and floor to ceiling windows that mid-century modern homes boast, but it has artistic and modern enhancements that are breath-taking.  The master bathroom has a stainless steel soaking tub and steam room,  the downstairs family-rumpus room has a custom kitchen for seamless entertaining and every aspect of this home looks as if it has been enhanced or over-hauled to pristine perfection.  (really!)  For enthusiast like myself I notice the details,  the silky smooth walls, the clean hinges and door hardware, the custom scones to showcase the stunning artwork,  the solid Douglas fir doors, and I could go on and on.   This was my favorite Oakland property of today's broker's tour.  (By the way, this property is blocks to Montclair Village, making it a great walking neighborhood in Oakland.) Here are a few photos to drool over.
