509 Blair Avenue, Piedmont

Spanish details define this elegant Piedmont home.  With its Mission tile roof, glazed tile trim and small balcony the home has a distinct Mediterranean flavor.  This central Piedmont classic features warmth and texture found only in a home of its style and era; white plaster facade and interior walls, deep cut-out windows, arched entryways, rich wood floors and exposed wood-beamed ceilings surround the occupants.

Upon approaching the home, the recessed entry frames a three inch thick wood plank door with burnished wrought iron detailing that opens into a grand entry. A dramatic eight-point star-patterned wood ceiling warms the entry area. The entry steps down to the spacious sunken living room on the left with its vaulted wood beamed ceiling, delicately painted trim and large west-facing window that brings in lots of natural light. The fireplace has a tile surround with a wood mantel supported by elaborately carved beams.  A plus room is located off the living room and opens out to a deck sheltering the carport below.

The formal dining room continues the Mediterranean theme with its wrought iron gate entry, ornate beamed ceiling and windows on two sides bringing in lots of natural light.  The dining room opens directly to the eat-in kitchen with lots of cabinets and counter space. A small half bath is located off the kitchen.

A graceful staircase with wood balusters leads to the upper story. On the landing, a door opens to a bedroom with light from windows on two sides. Upstairs, is second bedroom, full bath and a master suite. The spacious master bedroom overlooks the front of the house, offering a peek-a- boo view of the bay, as does the bedroom on the landing.  French doors open to a small balcony with wrought iron railing and a second door opens to a larger balcony trimmed with Mission tile grille. The bedroom has lots of light from south and west facing windows and a large closet with double doors and built in shelving. The dressing area offers more closet space and leads to the master bath with a shower-tub combination and original tile work.

A large second bedroom overlooks the rear of the house and has natural light from windows on two sides. The second full bath has a stall shower, sink and counter.

Returning to the main floor, stairs off the kitchen lead to the lower level with a laundry area, an additional room, full bath and family room; a potential au pair or extended family quarters.  The downstairs family or rumpus room has a wall of windows and French doors that lead out onto a private patio with brick pavers and a fountain, great for family gatherings and entertaining.

Enjoy the neighborhood appeal and community amenities of this charming home with its central location, close to Piedmont’s highly acclaimed K-12 schools; easy access to Piedmont, Grand and Lakeshore Avenue’s trendy shops and restaurants and farmers market; carpool and AC Transit nearby.

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.
