Originally built in 1928, the chic traditional home at 79 HAZEL LANE sits on a quiet cul-de-sac in central Piedmont — an ideal location that’s close to many top-rated schools, nearby shopping, and convenient transportation. Upon entering, a small gate opens to a tidy garden and brick patio walkway. The arched and paneled front door welcomes you into the entry hall and the spacious living room on the left. The new modern stone and tile fireplace and hearth offers a striking focal point and extra seating. The angled bay overlooking the front patio and the large accordion glass doors to the expansive terrace bring natural light into the room.

The generously sized terrace is designed for convenient indoor-outdoor entertaining with a fire pit, built-in gas grill and lots of counter space. Mature trees and a majestic Oak tree frame the rear garden with its large lawn for play, stone planting beds and shady patio for relaxing.  Adjacent to the living room, the graceful dining room also overlooks the garden through five tall leaded glass windows.

Off the entry hall, the modern kitchen has stone counters, two sink areas, a Viking range and refrigerator and sliding shelves in the cabinets. The kitchen opens directly to the dining room for informal or formal dining and a frosted door opens to the large pantry and steps to the downstairs laundry. From the entry, a short hall leads to a half bath and the large room at the front of the home. Formerly used as a main floor family room, it now serves as a fifth bedroom and could be an office, den or study. An interior barn door cleverly provides privacy.

New hickory hardwood floors flow throughout the main level, stairs and upstairs hallway. A striking polished metal hand rail curves up the main staircase to the upstairs bedrooms. The size-able master bedroom suite has large windows that overlook the terrace and garden and bring in lots of light. The master closet offers plenty of space with built-in shelves and drawers.  The new master bathroom has a glassed-in shower and opens to a small second-story balcony.

Three more bedrooms and a bathroom complete the second story. All three bedrooms are also generously sized with closets and large windows for lots of natural light. The new bathroom also has a glassed-in shower and double sinks. Stairs from the entry hall and kitchen access the large space on the lower level with a family/game room, laundry room and access to the two-car carport and garden.

The home blends a modern interior with its original traditional design. The current owners have added modern touches, while the home retains the original fine architectural features with the overhanging upper story, gabled dormers, angled window bays with copper roofs, half timbering and hand hewn wood posts at the entry, a small leaded glass window in the living room and some peaked windows. 79 HAZEL LANE was designed by Architect, Frederick Eugene Barton, who was known for designing some of the finest homes in Piedmont. He also designed Period Revival homes in Oakland and San Francisco.

At a Glance

Incorporated in 1907, the City of Piedmont is completely surrounded by the City of Oakland. But thanks in no small part to the fact that the city boasts its own mayor, city council, fire department, police department, and school district, Piedmont has maintained its unique identity for more than a century.

Originally a weekend destination for visitors to Piedmont Springs (which was part of the Rancho San Antonio Tract), Piedmont soon became a haven for artists and bohemians.

Today, the city is home to over 11,000 residents who are drawn to its tree-lined streets, top-rated schools, small-town atmosphere, and close proximity to downtown San Francisco.

In a Few Words

Award-winning schools

Living Here

The city of Piedmont is zoned nearly 100 percent residential, and commercial activity is limited to two small zones on Highland and Grand Avenues.
However, with Oakland’s charming Piedmont Avenue and Montclair shopping districts situated on either side, many can walk to restaurants and a variety of specialty shops and grocery stores.


Jack London once called this area home and wrote The Call of the Wild in the house he built here.  

Why Piedmont?

In recent years, by far the greatest draw for new residents to Piedmont has been its excellent school district. Consisting of three elementary schools, a middle school, a high school, and an alternative high school, the district currently ranks tenth out of California’s 756 school districts.
