1012 Ashmount Ave Oakland, CA, United States

1012 Ashmount Avenue was designed by famed architect John Hudson Thomas for John F. Conners, who at the time, was the managing editor of the Oakland Tribune. This home has heart and soul with its stately living room accented with crisp White Dove walls, a hammered copper fireplace hood, bold clear-heart redwood beams, baseboards and woodwork; this room is the most serene place to relax and enjoy the glow of the afternoon sun filtering through the west-facing windows. French doors lead into the formal dining room with a striking fireplace and handsome floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a Norfolk Pine tree. Also just off the living room are French doors that open into a sunny family room. The indoor-outdoor ambience flows to an ample front balcony that stretches across the entire front of the home, offering views of charming Crocker Highlands and the western skyline with glimpses of the bay. An impressive main staircase with a mezzanine-level seating area leads you to 3 large bedrooms, all on the same level, with fireplaces and western-facing windows with bay views. The primary en-suite has a luxurious bathroom featuring a soaking tub, oversized shower, and separate water closet. This grand room has a substantial walk-in closet and the private balcony with Bay views may be your favorite place to escape to. Almost every space is enchanting and thoughtfully designed. A commanding front office presents beautiful shadows of light and picturesque views of the front gardens and the most exquisite ceiling detail. The cozy eat-in kitchen offers a deluxe Viking 48-inch range, walk-in pantry, and an island/breakfast bar painted with the exquisite Duck Green by Farrow and Ball, and a butler’s pantry. A wall of windows and a French door leads to a private deck and hot tub perfect for relaxing or dining al fresco. This idyllic residence has a true sense of grandeur while still feeling intimate. This is not just a house, but a home that is truly a piece of art.
