There’s cool, and then there’s contemporary-home-rising-among-the-trees cool. Welcome to 6177 Westover, tucked in the Montclair hills above Shephard Canyon, a 1966 midcentury build with thoughtful modern updates. Spacious and open, the home still offers private and tranquil spaces, and interesting architectural details blend harmoniously with the contemporary aesthetic.
At street level, greeted by the scent of eucalyptus and the sound of silence, newly built redwood stairs and deck lead down to the pop-of-color front door. Comprised of two levels, the first floor is divided into two zones — an open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen are located in one, while two bedrooms and a bathroom are housed in the other. The zones are separated by a corridor, which flows through the center of the home. Awash in light that streams from floor-to-ceiling windows, the black painted beams of the vaulted ceiling amplify the spaciousness of the room. A deck runs the length of the house, framing the views of the landscape and reinforcing the home’s connection with the outdoors. Wide plank wood floors contrast beautifully with the interior white walls and black painted accents. The compact yet stylish open kitchen packs a serious punch, with quartz Calacatta-look countertops, white tile backsplash, and new LG stainless steel appliances — a large island seamlessly connects the spaces. The remodeled bathroom showcases the same black ceiling beams and a dark slate-look tile floor with an all-white palette for visual interest. Comfortable and relaxing, the master bedroom boasts plenty of closet space, and a convenient pocket door opens into the bathroom. Light and cozy, the second bedroom has modern globe lights hanging from the beams, beautifully illuminating the rustic-feel ceiling in the restful room.
The lower level has been transformed into a gathering space that flows easily to the second deck — a relaxed family room invites the outdoors in and creates a comfortable, flexible living space. The simplicity of the third bedroom promotes a sense of tranquility with great privacy, and the bathroom features a walk-in shower with plenty of natural light. A laundry room and storage areas complete this level.
The interior rooms extend into the landscape through the multi-level decks, providing spectacular canyon views and offering serene and private outdoor space for dining, entertaining, and relaxing. Westover Road is convenient to freeways, AC Transit and BART, with world-class hiking and biking trails moments away.Montclair Villageoffers a sweet, small-town vibe with delicious restaurants and charming shops, and a not-to-be-missed Sunday Farmer’s Market. A special home in a special place.
