Overview: 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, approx. 1177 sq. ft., one-car carport

Towering redwoods surround this beautifully updated wood-shingled Montclair home.  While a cabin-in-the-woods feel on the outside, the inside implements a stylish mid-century modern interior design.  What a wonderful juxtaposition! 

From the modern concrete and I-beam retaining wall, offset concrete pads with riser lighting create architectural steps to the home.  On both sides, a myriad of vibrant flora disperses about the manicured landscaping.  A perched redwood front deck overlooks the natural surroundings, and the custom extra-wide front door with a solid brass inlay sets the stage for the stylish interior.   

Respecting Design

Inside, modish updates fill the living spaces.  The airy, modern kitchen presents sleek cabinetry with Aget Italian Formica finishes.  Caeserstone counters meet a stainless steel seamless counter/sink combo.  Under ultra-wide modern windows, the high-end Bertazzoni gas range/oven demands delectable cuisine. 

Multiple windows flood the open-concept kitchen, dining and living room with natural light.   The full bath joins color and texture—a steel-framed mirror hangs over the Duravit sink; two modern fixtures light the room; and a vertical knotty pine accent wall adds the perfect touch of warmth.  Down the hall, three adjacent bedrooms are laid out to keep loved ones close. 

A bonus space on the lower level includes a laundry room, storage room, and a finished office with exposed beams, a new window, and a modern sliding “barn door.” 

Embracing Nature  

Relishing in indoor-outdoor living, the backyard redwood deck and elevated patio offer two spaces for dining, lounging, or stargazing from the fire pit.  Attractive retaining walls neatly frame these spaces and secure the hillside scattered in redwoods and oaks.  Tools and yard equipment find their storage on the side yard, where a neatly designed shed matches the home design. 

While feeling like a retreat from the busy Bay Area, this home is minutes from amusement and amenities—boutiques and cafes in Montclair Village, Montclair Park, excellent public and private schools, and quick access to freeways for breezy commutes.  135 Beauforest proves itself as an opportunity for form and function in living. 




Floor Plans



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.
