If you saw the house a few months ago you won't believe the transition. This quaint home is set below the road, with immersive natural beauty and greenery, and an expansive, terraced backyard. A rare outdoor experience you won’t find anywhere else in the hills. The 2nd level has been transformed into a primary retreat with en suite bathroom, office, family room and laundry room. The spiral staircase has been rebuilt, the kitchen and dining room have been updated and the fireplace has been redesigned. See views of the bay and the hills from the top of the property, and experience your own quiet, private space in the back. Offering ample deck space, and a number of options, like adding a pergola, planting a garden in the terraces, giving pets a place to roam, or creating a lush escape. The rear of the house faces south, giving the backyard plenty of sun. Watch the sunset with a glass of wine. Close to Downtown Montclair, parks, schools, trails and just a few minutes from the freeway.
