Nestled on a hillside in a bucolic setting, this updated shingled-cottage is the perfect retreat to escape the hustle-and-bustle of everyday life. Surrounded by redwoods, this home features two living areas with the two bedroom/one bath upstairs and a separate one bedroom/one bath au-pair down below. The beautifully updated sunny and bright upper level area features a newer kitchen with breakfast nook, a warm and inviting living room fireplace, an updated bathroom and two decks for entertaining. The downstairs area has a separate entrance, cozy seating area and a patio for relaxing. For those who like to garden, there are raised planter beds to grow vegetables. Sitting up on the hillside in the early evening, you can relax and watch the sun set over the trees. If you like hiking, both the Huckleberry Botanical Park and the Sibley Volcanic hiking trails are nearby. If you like swimming, the Montclair Swim Club is even closer.
