About

Harkening back to a bygone era of style and elegance, 6624 Saroni Drive is a remarkable mid-century modern home designed by visionary Case Study architect Beverley “David” Thorne in Oakland’s coveted Montclair neighborhood.

An entertainer’s dream, this elegant 1959 hillside home is suspended in the air by Thorne’s signature “steel and glass” frame, drawing you in with its light-filled open layout, clean lines, and floor-to-ceiling windows and doors. Many rooms of this 2-story, 4-bed, 2.5-bath home enjoy evergreen views of trees and the Bay.

The move-in ready house has been meticulously updated by the current owner with an eye for design, with period-appropriate details including a gourmet kitchen with high-end cabinets and appliances, porcelain floors, Jonathan Adler light fixtures, Marvin windows, specialty tile and grout imported from Spain, and custom, floor-to-ceiling TruStile doors, as well as all new electrical, plumbing, and the like, costing more than $300,000 and taking almost two years.

The top level – featuring gourmet kitchen, a formal living room, a family room, dining room, and office/study alcove – is bright and white, with exposed beams, clerestory windows, a centerpiece “floating” fireplace, counter balanced by Thorne’s signature concrete “waved” ceiling featuring modernist lighting and high-end hardware. The floor opens onto an expansive cantilevered deck with expansive views of trees and the Bay. It is the perfect place for entertaining or relaxing with that sunset martini. Your indoor-outdoor lifestyle also includes a mod covered breezeway for al fresco dining. 

A serene master suite with imported wall-paper, a dreamy custom walk-in closet and generous, designer bathroom with a separate toilet room, is located on the lower level, with two more bedrooms, a full bathroom, ample storage, and a laundry room. 

The yard was recently upgraded to include new plants, an expansive lawn and bocce ball court, perfect for your summer gatherings.  The home includes two separate storage rooms and parking for 6 cars.

6624 Saroni Drive is a rare listing!

Thorne, the famed architect, was the last living contributor to the Case Study Houses program, a series of innovative post-war designs commissioned by Art & Architecture magazine between the 1940s and 1960s. Read more about Thorne here
