High atop the Oakland hills in the Montclair neighborhood of the city, is this imaginative and dramatic view home.  It is located at 6855 Elverton Drive, and offers 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a very generous 4100 sf of living space.   

This magical home seems to be suspended in space above all the others, and provides a special sunrise and sunset every day.  An expansive outdoor deck with sweeping views captures each and every one of these events.  

Entry into the home reveals this glowing, and warmly lit foyer that begins to reveal the drama of the home directly below.  

Guests will enter the house through this distinctive sweep of stairs that curves gently downward to the living area.  

Just at the base of the stairs is this very appealing family room that combines with the living room, seen below, to provide just a part of what can easily be characterized as true open concept living.  

Together, the family room and living area create a marvelous interior living space that combines perfectly with the stunning outside patio, and the panorama below.   

This entire living space, with its softly gleaming floors, is enhanced with a splendid peaked ceiling and overhead supplemental lighting that serve to complement the already glowing light that flows in from the doors to the exterior balcony.   

The striking fireplace provides an outstanding centerpiece for the room, and is especially welcome on cool Bay area evenings.  

A slightly different perspective reveals the pleasant warmth and simplicity of the living room, and the proximity of the formal dining room to the left.  

This inviting dining room with its amazing overhead chandelier, awaits the possibility of a variety of events-from luncheons and casual dining, to a full formal meal for a special occasion or event.  

Just off the dining room is this very notable kitchen.  A great deal of thought has been given into making this both a pleasant and an efficient working space.  As a result, there is more than ample counter and workspace-a feature that should impress the most creative of home chefs.  

Updated amenities include stone counters, a pantry, a dishwasher, a built in gas range/cooktop, a refrigerator, a microwave, and a built in oven

A different view reveals the central island that effectively serves multiple roles as a breakfast/lunch counter, a preparation space for meals, and a serving site for parties.  

Just steps away is this charming table and chairs set for use when a more relaxed luncheon, or a quiet retreat with a meal, a cup of coffee, and a good book is planned.  

There are four bedrooms in the home.  Two will be shown for your consideration.  Certainly the most appealing has to be this large primary bedroom, with its private patio featuring views to the cities below. 

Its very generous floorspace encourages numerous opportunities for creating a unique and very personal living space.  It also features a sizeable walk in closet. 

Immediately adjacent is this stunning primary bathroom with a luxurious jet tub, panoramic views, steam shower, and a new exterior deck with access to a hot tub and outside shower, seen below.  

This cozy niche off the primary bathroom offers both hot tub living, and views of both the neighborhood and surrounding vistas.

Just adjacent to the primary bedroom is this very effective gym space.  

As indicated previously, all four bedrooms are on the second floor.  This bedroom is the second of those four.  Besides the primary bedroom, all are designed in such a way that any could easily become an office, library, arts and crafts room, music or play room, should the need arise.  

The San Francisco Bay area is one of the most desirable living regions in the world, and this view above from this very special home certainly indicates the reason why.  

If you would like much more information about this residence, please contact me promptly regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  The home is being offered for sale for $2,195,000.
