The Story of 1115 Clarendon Crescent
Crocker Highlands’ cherished Clarendon Crescent presents a picturesque setting for this large, lavish, pool-and-spa-bedecked property. The level-in home reflects preserved 1920’s architectural allure, such as refinished hardwood floors and a historic Bachelder fireplace. It combines radiant formal rooms, an updated eat-in kitchen, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms. Its lower level features a garden-view home office as well as a family-media room, which opens broadly to a deck, outstretched level lawn and pool terrace, all fringed by luxuriant gardens and soaring redwoods.
Expansive and private, the integrated landscape, pool, and spa lie just beyond the family room, bridged by an enchanting pergola-covered deck threaded with wisteria. The grounds showcase a thriving environment for indulging in water sports and lounging, surrounded by beds of vibrant perennials, mature trees, stone-lined borders and walking paths. Cushioned by leafy hedges and towering evergreens, the property feels secluded.
A cultivated oasis meets convenience, with its ideal proximity to everyday everything. Access to transportation lies within a scenic stroll or short ride, as do highly rated schools, including Crocker Highlands Elementary, plus a world of shopping and recreation in Lakeshore, Park Boulevard, and Montclair hubs.
Original 1920’s character embellishes the interior, especially the home’s public rooms. The living room features a prominent Bachelder tile fireplace, original to 1924, its neutral-hued art tile incorporating accent tiles with pomegranates on flowering branches. Throughout the formal living and dining rooms, substantial divided-light casement windows generate radiance, and wide ribbons of base and crown moldings frame the spaces with grandeur. A butler’s pantry off the foyer between the spaces brings ease and elegance to entertaining.
An additional, sunny place to dine, the kitchen contains a breakfast alcove flanked by windows and a built-in hutch for storage and display. Clean and classic, a color scheme of predominantly white unites components, such as the milky solid-surface Corian countertop, sink, and backsplash. Slate flooring adds a dash of earthy color.
Three luminous bedrooms integrate the play of natural light on polished hardwoods; two overlook the pool and landscaped haven, lending resort ambiance. The master opens to a roof deck and includes an adjoining pair of closets. Bedrooms are served by a double-vanity vintage-effect bathroom. A second full bathroom occupies the lower level, adjacent to the office and family room, enabling either to serve as guest quarters with separate entry.
The lower level also offers utility and storage, plus access to the attached garage that sits at the base of the private driveway.
