Elevate Yourself. Beyond extraordinary, this eco-chic Oakland Hills residence displays the Bay Area at its finest: priceless views of iconic bridges and the sparkling Bay and a gorgeous palette of natural and sustainable materials, all optimized for a true indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Walls of windows plus patios and decks integrate the panoramas into the inspired interior design, which features exotic hardwoods, streamlined modern fixtures, and user-friendly open living spaces. This enviably private cul-de-sac location is mere steps from the peaceful trails of the Leona Canyon Regional Open Space Preserve, yet also only fifteen minutes from downtown Oakland, near schools and shopping.
Fly high with unforgettable hillside views on a prime property that avoids the tenuous highwire feeling of many Oakland/Berkeley homes with their stilt-like foundations. Instead, the broad, flat driveway bisects a level front yard with water-conscious landscaping, divided by gates with decorative metalwork and beamed wood. The two-car garage behind the door with ornamental inserts is another rare bonus in this area. The home’s main entrance is tucked away on one side, introduced by a handsome wooden deck perfect for container gardening or meditative mornings. The front door, framed with twin sidelights and painted marigold yellow, extends an auspicious welcome. Inside, the foyer sets a polished tone with exquisite Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, spot lighting, and the main staircase with its industrial-chic stainless-steel railing.
Soar above it all as you bask in the main level’s showcase vistas, a paradise of opalescent sunsets, glittering city skyline, and distant undulating hills. The elegant dining room with its LED halo chandelier connects to the living room via a cut-out wall, inviting the picturesque Bay to the dinner table. Walls of windows line the sunken living room and the adjacent family room with its stacked slate feature wall and in-line gas fireplace. The sophisticated kitchen yields to this spectacular setting, maintaining a low profile with its three-seat breakfast bar, up-to-the-minute stainless-steel appliances, and floating cabinets and range hood, all crafted from premium materials with an attention to nuance. There is a sunny bay-windowed nook in the family room and access to the wooden backyard decks for al fresco meals and entertaining, all with mega views and smart, ecologically responsible landscaping.
Float through your days, your spirits buoyed by the peerless rejuvenation afforded by four serene, well-appointed bedrooms plus three lavish baths. The primary suite is the crown jewel, featuring vaulted ceilings and a lofty private balcony more than roomy enough for a café set or romantic loveseat. The en suite bathroom is decadently swathed in marble, with Indonesian macassar ebony cabinets and Duravit fixtures including a deep soaking tub and separate shower. An office nook sports a pair of narrow column windows with peek-a-boo views intended to embellish, not distract. All the bedrooms have premium natural fiber carpeting and picture windows; the guest bath is ensconced in entrancing tile with a natural wood vanity for balance. Five-star amenities include central air, a laundry room with storage, and an owned alarm system.
