A gently sloping hillside with a handsome tile stairway leads up to this picture-perfect home. The peaked roofs, impressive entry and a bow window give a distinctly traditional look and feel. The oversize front doors consist of 2 paneled doors which sit beneath a recessed landing complemented by handsome carriage lights.
Once inside, the dramatic foyer radiates a welcoming aura, and offers a preview of the home's sophisticated rooms. A dramatic living room on the left is the perfect gathering place for family and friends, and features high cathedral ceilings, a handsome oak floor, and a sleek fireplace with a classic white mantel. Large windows face the front and bring in plenty of natural light and the living room is open to the spacious formal dining room with filtered bay views and sophisticated ceiling detail and soffit lighting.
Behind double doors is the fabulous eat-in kitchen/family room which has everything a cook could want! With more than ample storage cabinets, granite counters and newer high end stainless appliances, this welcoming room is where everyone will gather. A granite island and bar separate the kitchen from the family room with high cathedral ceilings, view balcony, fireplace, built-in entertainment center and windows which flood the room with natural light. A sliding glass door opens to the large deck and backyard garden.
Ipe wood is known for its beauty and long-lasting qualities. This deck provides an additional living space for recreation and hours of easy outdoor living with seamless indoor/outdoor access.
A hallway to the left of the entrance leads to a library, full laundry room, bathroom, main floor bedroom and a luxurious powder room. This expansive library, or fourth bedroom, with built-ins has hardwood floors, a beautiful bow window, and lovely views of the Oakland hills. Down the hall, an updated bathroom is conveniently situated next to the bedroom. The renovated laundry room and a chic powder room complete this level.
