Upon entering this outstanding home located high in the hills above Berkeley at 7112 Westmoorland Drive, one becomes immediately aware that light and space are the defining features of every room.   This spacious house offers 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms in a generous 4070 sf of living space.  

This opening view is the first to greet guests and residents.  It is a unique space since it can serve multiple purposes.  Above the main floor of the home, it can be a site for entertaining, a family room, or perhaps a large office space away from the busier living areas below.  

A slightly different aspect reveals the floorspace available.  The pleasant central fireplace creates additional appeal.   

The stairs to the left of this picture lead down to the main floor of the residence.    

This dramatic central staircase leads down to this stunning central living space. where residents and guests can move easily from one room to another, and out to the marvelous view balcony.  Each of these features are perfectly suited for parties, dinners, or hosting a special event.   

The entire left side of the main floor has been carefully crafted to take advantage of the hillside views that are available below.  Floor to ceiling windows and a grand sliding glass door provide light sources from every angle of this space.  

During the evening, and on cooler days, guests can gather around the  exceptional central fireplace that fits comfortably into the room's far wall, savoring delightful treats while enjoying each other's company.  

A large built in bar and sink are just behind the couch, adding to the ease of entertaining and serving food and refreshments.  

Directly opposite from the living room is this very imaginative corner space that is perfect for the placement of a large dining room table and multiple chairs. 

Its location, just adjacent to the kitchen, assures that food service becomes easy and direct.  

Additional charm is added by the placement of a delightful window seat that is seen below the four bay windows that look out on the hillside trees just below.   That view, and the comparable view to from the balcony, makes the dining room a perfect compliment to the entire ambiance.   

This is what "sitting on top of the world" can look like.  This compelling balcony reaches out and away from the living area to provide a magical viewing experience of the Bay area below.  

An additional perspective reveals the lush, green rolling hills and views towards the bay that provide a pleasant privacy, yet the home itself is just minutes from the busy stores, restaurants and marketplaces of Elmwood, Rockridge and Montclair.  

Just steps from the dining room is this gleaming, and handsomely updated kitchen, that reveals this cleverly conceived working space.  The overlapping counter to the front left easily doubles as a eat in kitchen counter, work space, and serving surface for both the dining room and special events.   

The kitchen's central island combines with all the many levels of drawers, shelving and cabinetry to offer excellent storage space for favorite china, serving pieces, glassware and cooking utensils.
