Sun-drenched 5945 Sherwood is the best of both worlds - a private sanctuary set minutes away from endless trails perfect for hiking/running/cycling, yet moments from Montclair Village amenities including restaurants, shops, cafes, and weekly farmer’s market. The home provides true indoor/outdoor living in both front and rear - the front garden features slate paths and terraced garden beds with 11 different kinds of fruit trees, and the rear features enormous room-sized decks which connect to nearly every room in the home, a chicken coop (with real egg laying chickens!), and 3 add'l types of fruit trees. Recently remodeled bathrooms, a remodeled kitchen, and refinished hardwood floors make this 1929 home feel much more 2021. Fabulous Lake Merritt and Bay views. Green improvements include owned solar panels, efficient windows and doors, and a 220v Tesla charger. Assigned to Thornhill Elementary based on location, though admission not guaranteed. 2 car detached carport for easy parking.
