If you’re dreaming of living in Montclair – moments from the village’s charming cafes and shops, schools, parks, and trails – welcome home! 2008 Drake Drive in the Oakland Hills is a fantastic opportunity to settle in this coveted community in a house with rare expansive yards and veggie beds, a bonus family room and additional space to convert into a potential 4th bedroom.
This special home sits on a desirable level street and features 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a large recreational/family room and a sunny deck overlooking large backyard.
