Imagine returning home at the end of the day, driving alongside the tall trees and bridle paths of Skyline Boulevard, to be greeted by a spectacular, panoramic view of the bay. You'll feel like you're living on top of the world in this spacious Oakland Hills estate - modern glamour situated in one of nature's most picturesque settings.
This level-living home has great attention to comfort and detail with its custom touches throughout. The stone foyer, leaded glass door and high ceilings set the scene for the luxury to come. The living room has a beautiful imported Italian hearth, boxed beamed ceilings, and the broad, expansive bay window showcases the view as if it were a giant piece of ever-chaning artwork.
Steps away is a smart layout for entertaining and family life. The kitchen, dining room and family room flow gracefully together, and open out onto a large stamped concrete patio with a lush lawn, lovely landscaping, palm trees and a wooded hillside. The gourmet kitchen has a high-end 6-burner stove, Sub-Zero fridge, custom cabinets and granite counters and island. Watching the sunset through the window over the sink makes any culinary work a delight.
Two bedrooms with a shared bath each have their own amazing view; one with the view of the bay and the other overlooking the hills and hiking trails. The master suite is a sanctuary with a soaring cathedral ceiling, a dream marbled bath with double sinks, an Ultra spa tub, glassed-in shower and huge skylight. Other touches like the walk-in closet, recessed lighting and built-in speakers all lend an air of indulgence.
Downstairs is a bonus room that can be used as an office, wine room or just a quiet hideaway. The surroundings of this 1/3 acre property are undeveloped regional parks and a nearby equestrian center. Think of lounging in the front courtyard, sipping your favorite Cabernet, the city view stretched out before you like a giant sparkling diamond bracelet as horses ride by on the trails... True relaxation!
Conveniently located near Highways 580 and 13, all this splendor is easily accessible to the Farmer's Market at Lakeshore, the fabulous dining in Rockridge and the abundant shops of Montclair, as well as being minutes from the Oakland Airport, Oracle Arena and the Coliseum. In addition, you have nature at your doorstep, as if living at a Tahoe retreat. A lovely mix of modern urban living in a country setting.
