Built for the Beneditti family in 1963, this is the first time 132 Montwood Way has been available for sale. This sweet rancher home is located at the end of a cul-de-sac and is a truly special home.  

Just a few steps into the home where you are immediate greeted by a wall of windows bringing the outdoors in. The inviting living and dining areas act as a large great room and has been the location of countless celebrations. Gaze out onto the enormous backyard – approx. 26,535 sq. ft - which includes canyon views with redwood and olive trees to name a few. Truly beautiful!

The flow is ideal from the great room to the nearby eat-in kitchen which is comprised of fun black and white tile backsplash, gray countertops and double oven. Cooking will be a delight all the while taking in the views of the yard.

Down the hallway you will find three bedrooms. The master suite boasts two closets and hardwood floors. Enjoy the vistas of the yard from this room as well; the perfect way to wake up and start each day. Freshly painted, the master bath includes a new vanity and light fixture. Just a few steps away, the second and third bedrooms are of ample size and are graced by hardwood floors.

A spacious second bathroom is conveniently located at the end of the hall and is comprised of a new toilet, shower and light fixtures and has been freshly painted. There is also wonderful storage and closet space to take advantage of. Do not miss the attached two car garage on this level.

Down some stairs and prepare to be impressed! An airy family room with large windows and sliding glass door to the yard allows in plenty of natural light. Imagine a pool or ping-pong table or a projector screen... this will be an enjoyable space for children and the young at heart alike! The second fireplace will create a cozy environment while enjoying a favorite movie. Neatly tucked away find a laundry room with a newer washer/dryer and utility sink – laundry days will be a breeze! A fourth bedroom with newly added carpet and recessed lighting is a fantastic place for guests or extended family.

A few steps out to the park-like backyard which is truly like no other place we have seen. You will be transported to your own oasis...even though you are just minutes from the city! Completely surrounded by nature you will feel the serenity amongst the majestic redwood and pine trees. Magical indeed, the owner’s daughter took her vows here. Lovingly planted by the owner and his father, an olive tree lies at the heart of the main portion of the yard. The second tier of the yard offers more space for anything your heart desires - an area for planting colorful plants or trees? Or consider creating another relaxing space – perhaps a spa nestled amongst the trees.  A creek also runs below along the property.

Montwood Way is a quiet cul-de-sac with just a handful of homes on this street that is just one block long. This is a street where many neighbors know one another and have since their homes were built in the 1960s.

The sellers of this home have created many special memories at 132 Montwood Way and hope the new stewards of the home will create their own for many years to come.


Located just minutes to the Oakland Zoo, Knowland Park, and Chabot Golf Course you will not have trouble enjoying the great outdoors here! For the day-to-day conveniences close-by Foothill Square is home to a number of restaurants, a grocery store, shops and banks.  All this and easy access to AC Transit lines and highway 580.
