Timeless & Exquisite Claremont Craftsman Home

Built by the acclaimed architect Walter H. Ratcliff Jr., this classic and exquisitely upgraded Craftsman home is timeless and distinctive. A tranquil, urban retreat nestled in a park-like neighborhood where majestic mature trees line the streets. River rock columns frame the large front porch and adorn the fireplace surround. The bold wood paneling and ceiling beams give a sense of solidity and warmth complemented by hand-crafted bespoke millwork and cabinetry. This aspect of the home is also featured in the spacious dining room with built-in hutch, family room/den with leaded glass pocket doors, and generous eat-in kitchen equipped with a subzero refrigerator, Lacanche two-oven (gas and electric) five-burner stove paired with a hammered copper hood, a double farmhouse sink, and stone countertops. An inviting breakfast nook opens to the garden offering various gathering areas to enjoy dining alfresco and relaxing in comfort and style.

The home's 3 bedrooms are also adorned with bespoke millwork and cabinetry and have views of the surrounding gardens. One of the bedrooms features an integrated entertainment/sound system and a built-in desk. Up the stately stairwell, a skylight illuminates the way to an extra-large and serene master suite with sitting area, featuring one of the home's 3 beautifully remodeled bathrooms designed with intricate tile work and elegant fixtures. Underscoring the hand-crafted interior and lush gardens, this home is replete with substantial amenities. In addition to the garage, an expansive cellar provides ample storage (potential wine cellar or rec room). With AC and solar panels (owned, not leased), the home is ready to make the best of any weather, and the newer roof and retrofitted foundation look to maintain this house well into the future. Close to Rockrige BART and near the Domingo, Rockridge, and Elmwood shopping and dining districts, residents can spend time in town or outdoors at the nearby Claremont Regional Preserve.
