x Arron Sweeney  Presents: One of A Kind Rustic Retreat 6555 Longwalk Drive  $599,000


This truly unique Bohemian hideaway in Piedmont Pines is just waiting for its next owner to fall in love! Never before on the market, this one-of-a-kind pole-built home was designed and constructed by its original owner, an industrial engineer who also designed the metal hardware for the highly regarded Eames chair.
With two bedrooms and one full bathroom, the home is both comfortable and dramatic, flooded with gorgeous natural light throughout. Floor-to-ceiling windows, a hand-built wooden staircase, an open floor plan and vaulted ceiling all contribute to the connection with nature and the outdoors that one feels while in the home. A lovely second-floor loft invites you to sit by the fireplace and curl up with a book, while the large sliding doors and numerous decks throughout invite the outside into this private hillside oasis. Located just minutes from the convenience of the Montclair Village. 
The home, built in 1975, currently needs some attention (per inspection reports), so bring your imagination and love of the outdoors. Don't miss this one!
Features include:
  • Two bedrooms
  • One full bathroom
  • Workshop/art studio
  • Two off-street parking spots
  • Fireplace
  • Views of mature trees and the valley below
  • Very private hillside location
  • Inspection reports provided


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.
