Overview: 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 2509 sq. ft., and interior access to the 2-car garage

Nestled in the Montclair hills, this ultra-modern home relishes in dramatic views of the Bay, bridges, and San Francisco skyline.  Exceptional in architectural details and design, vaulted ceilings, walls of windows, custom stained Brazilian cherry floors, polished concrete, slate accent walls, and shadow line wall transitions showcase a sleek, minimalist style across the voluminous living spaces.

Main-Level Luxury

Level in from the street. A modern front courtyard with a built-in kitchen and barbecue area leads to the front door.  The connected kitchen, dining, and living room flows onto a huge Ipe wood deck—impeccable indoor-outdoor living that maximizes the views.  For preparing culinary delights, the chef’s kitchen implements Caesarstone waterfall counters, custom walnut cabinetry, and professional Viking appliances, including a 48-inch 6-burner range.  One can cook while a fire burns in the living room slate and rolled steel gas fireplace—a striking centerpiece.    

Views continue in the luxurious master suite and bath.  The spa-like bath features heated floors, honed limestone tile, Kohler fixtures, and an infinity soaking tub under a picture window.  What lavishness!  An office/bedroom and modern full bath complete the main level. 

Lower-Level Respite

Entertainment and guest-suite living are on tap downstairs, where polished concrete floors add to the cohesive design.  Equipped with a projection system, built-in woofers and surround sound, and a wall mounted 106-inch screen is the huge family and theater room.  Brilliant!  Automated curtains close for movie night or open for the city lights, and a wet bar/kitchenette and second fireplace add to the ambience.

Incredibly high-tech, all lighting, TVs, security system and cameras are app-controlled on your phone and programmable switches with the Control4 system.  Dual furnaces provide heat downstairs and heat and A/C upstairs.    

Outside, the southwest facing backyard is lined with rows of sun-ripened Syrah and Viognier grapevines, all on an automatic irrigation system.  With easy access to walks, hikes, bike rides in the regional parks, The Hills Swim and Tennis Club, top-notch schools, and boutiques and cafes in downtown Montclair, 6825 Colton joins modern, wonderful living with a dynamic, active lifestyle.

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.
