Luminous, sprawling treehouse sanctuary!

Eclectic, bohemian living where the indoors and outdoors practically merge. Once the station master's log cabin, now a four-bedroom two-bathroom retreat with multiple decks awash in natural light. The original logs and stone fireplace still grace the living room where the ceilings have been vaulted and skylighted. Huge primary suite with office opening onto deck encircled by trees. Clothing optional! A walk-in closet, laundry and updated bathroom with soaking tub complete this wing. Three more bedrooms and full bathroom make up the opposite wing. A bright kitchen leads to a greenhouse-like dining/sun room which, in turn, opens onto a deck sure to become a beloved gathering spot. Tucked above, on this triple lot, is a detached studio. Plans (not submitted for approval) for an ADU and two-car garage are included. Located near Shepherd's Canyon Park and connected to Montclair Village by bike path. Lavender and ferns and nooks oh my! Fairies not included.


Tucked away in the wooded hills and winding streets above Oakland, Montclair is a small community with an appealing central shopping district. Sizable custom homes, along with a mix of Mediterranean, Craftsman, and contemporary-style homes are situated on forested lots, offering an elegant retreat from the city. 
The Montclair Business District is a throwback to a simpler time before strip malls, megamalls, and big-box stores. Residents can find everything they need, from dry cleaning and groceries to restaurants. Local restaurant favorites include the Montclair Egg Shop, Flipper’s Gourmet Burgers, and Crogan’s Montclair Restaurant. Gourmet specialty items are available at Le Bonbon, and Farmstead Wine and Cheese. A farmers market on Sundays provides fresh local produce and baked goods. Montclair is home to fine-arts festivals throughout the year and a jazz festival in the late summer that enlivens the street scene.
