This dramatically placed home sits high above Oakland in the very popular Broadway Terrace neighborhood, and is located at 9056 Broadway Terrace. Close to the many and varied shops and restaurants of Rockridge and Montclair, it is equally ideally placed for commuting to downtown Oakland, San Francisco, and Contra Costa County. It offers 3 bedrooms, and 2 1/2 baths in approximately 2708 sf of living space.
The sweeping view of San Francisco, and San Francisco Bay that is associated with this home is stunning, and may be seen from both the upper and lower levels of the home.
Turning northerly, one can view the Bay Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Marin County. This exceptional visual experience changes as the sun rises and sets, and the seasons vary, and is memorable under each circumstance.
These expansive pair of balconies provide perfect venues for viewing the Bay area panoramas seen above. They enclose the western side of both floors to ensure that no perspective is missed, no matter what the time of day.
Stepping through the front entryway, guests are greeted with an immediate impression of light and space. The open floor plan is complimented with floor to ceiling doors and windows that draw the eye to the outside deck and panoramic views. The dramatically peaked open beamed ceiling with its glowing golden color, is matched by the equally warm hardwood floors that will be seen throughout the home.
A perfectly placed dining space is to the right of the room, and adjacent to the kitchen, could serve as a formal dining area should the host require, but it could just as easily serve as a buffet table for teas or luncheons on the deck.
This expansive outside deck space, with its western exposure, will be a premium location for much of the year, whether the goal is to entertain friends, or just to sit quietly with a book and enjoy a cup of tea.
Adjacent to both the living room, deck and dining area, is this gleaming updated kitchen, that should please the fussiest of home chefs. Light flows in from virtually every angle, and is supplemented with a pair of exceptional skylights that are architecturally engaging. Amenities include the delightful breakfast bar, stone counters, a gas range/cooktop, a built in oven, a dishwasher, and a refrigerator.
The work space and storage space here is impressive. There are shelves and drawers at every level to meet the needs of the cook whose requirements might include the special placement of varied serving and cooking pieces, or favorite glassware and china.
There are three bedrooms in the home. The first, seen here, is this spacious master bedroom that is glowing from the large view windows to the right of the bed, and the recessed lighting that is included in the open beam ceiling, and within the large circular fan above the bed.
Just off the master bedroom is this impressively upgraded master bathroom that includes a skylight, stall shower, a spacious sink area with a full length mirror, and a bathtub complete with jets for an special additional amenity.
A second bedroom on the upper floor continues the design objective of plentiful space, warmth, and generous views of the greenery and surrounding scenic drama.
Adjacent to the two bedrooms on the upper floor, is this expansive space that is currently being used as an office/den. While its use is certainly ideal as currently conceived, it furnishes numerous opportunities for alternative concepts which could be equally appealing.
Stepping down a level reveals this charming bedroom space which is equally suitable as a third bedroom, or as a guest room. Virtually floor to ceiling sliding glass doors lead to a private outside patio area.
A reverse perspective of the room reveals a convenient half bath, a flexible sink and storage area.
The lower level features this impressively large space that is as flexible as one's imagination can allow. With a wall of floor to ceiling windows, and doors leading to the outside deck and the exterior expanse, it is a delightful challenge.
A slightly different aspect reveals the charm and flexibility that this space affords. Special or seasonal gatherings and parties are a perfect use of this space.
If you would like this home to be yours, or you have found another that has attracted your attention, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280 for more information or particulars. The home is being offered for sale for $1,479,000.
