Sensational. Sophisticated. Stunning. Serene. Contemporary architecture and elegant custom finishes converge to produce this exceptional home set above the Montclair district in Oakland. This newer 2003 home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in a neighborhood of newer homes, looking out to breathtaking views of the bay, city lights and scenic hillsides. The utmost care was taken to thoughtfully design and finish this home with vaulted ceilings, large windows to the views, custom cabinetry, natural stone flooring and countertops, warm wood flooring, modern lighting and more. Enjoy the tranquility and privacy of your own personal retreat while being just minutes from all things urban, public transportation and close to miles of regional park land and trails.

When you arrive you will appreciate the attractive professional landscaping and pleasant slate entry patio with a relaxing water feature. The two car garage and large driveway provide plenty of parking. Kids will enjoy the cul-de-sac for hours of play. And you will enjoy that most of this home is on only two levels!

Enter through the dramatic two story foyer to the living room and adjoining dining room. This area is light and bright with abundant windows yet has warm wood floors and cabinetry. Extra tall ceilings and interior doors create an open and dramatic space for living. You can relax by the fire while enjoying a book or drink from the custom built-in bookcase and bar.

Step in to the cook’s kitchen with stunning bay views featuring:

  • Warm cherry cabinets

  • Six burner Monogram gas range and oven

  • Stainless Monogram hood

  • Convection/microwave oven

  • Side by side Monogram refrigerator with custom cherry door fronts

  • Granite countertops with custom stone backsplash

  • Brushed chrome hardware

The family room area adjacent to the kitchen, also with views, has a second fireplace with a custom built-in bookcase and entertainment center. The slate deck off this area is perfect for barbeques, entertaining and watching many a sunset.

Just steps from this main level is the first bedroom suite which can double as an office or guest quarters with attractive built-in bookcases, desk, Murphy bed and a mini bar area. The en suite full bath has stone tile flooring and neutral white tile. The half bath for this level has an attractive stone pedestal sink and stone flooring.

The master suite located on the second level has extra tall ceilings with an architectural inset in the ceiling. This suite has beautiful bay, city and scenic hillside views and a deck for a morning cup of coffee. You will relax in the lavish over-sized master bathroom featuring a large whirlpool soaking tub that looks out to the views, an extra large shower with seamless glass doors, travertine flooring and counters, and chrome hardware. There is a walk-in closet large enough for your wardrobe and storage needs.

The third bedroom and third full bath are also on this level, along with a nook perfect for a study/office area or nursery. The laundry room is conveniently located close to these bedrooms.  An extra surprise is the finished wine cellar and tasting room and  adjoining large storage room.

An amazing bonus to this home: two partially finished rooms with exterior access: one perfect for a home gym or office and the second with plumbing ready for a potential sauna, shower and recreation area.

Don’t miss this opportunity to own this dramatic and elegant home so close to everything yet away from it all!
