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.
