This charming hillside home, located at 6173 Ascot Drive in the Piedmont Pines neighborhood of Oakland, has outstanding curb appeal.  The lush green of the lawns and gardens combines beautifully with the soft shadings of the tall, well established trees that surround the property.  It offers 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a generous 2639 sf of living space.  

Entry into the home reveals this engaging living space around which many a pleasant evening, afternoon lunch, or late dinner can be planned.

As will be seen, each of these spaces combines beautifully together into a well conceived harmony.  

To begin, this marvelous living room is large enough to accommodate generous and varied seating configurations around the pleasant, and desirable central fireplace.  

The richly colored hardwood floors pair beautifully with the soft off white colors of the walls and ceilings.  Built in bookcases invite the display of favorite collectible, books and artwork.  

And, finally, floor to ceiling glass walls, and a sliding glass door open to reveal this compelling view balcony just steps away.  

A pair of old growth trees frame the beauty of this irresistible balcony located high above the San Francisco Bay area below.  

A slightly different perspective reveals a view to the South Bay, and the location of the home's unique sun room with its own distinctive presentation of the scene below. 

This is a world famous view of the Bay area that draws both residents and visitors to want to experience it year round.

It is available here- every day of the year.   

Returning inside, one can observe the close proximity of this gracious dining area to the living room, and to the very appealing sun room seen below.  

A reverse view reveals the size of the dining room.  It easily accommodates a large table, and at least six chairs, with room for a glass topped bar/ server at the center rear.  

No doubt due to its hillside location, this unique sunroom has been created to offer a sunny, and yes, warmer, scenic view on cooler Bay area days and evenings.  

As would be expected in a home of this quality, the kitchen is both exceptional and notable.  Brightly lit with generous overhead lighting, it provides a long solid surface work space counter along the far left wall for easy meal preparation.  

Updated appliances included a dishwasher, a freestanding range/oven, and refrigerator.  

When a casual lunch, or having a relaxing with cup of tea and a good book is planned, this delightful eat in kitchen spot is ideal.  Multiple windows provide views of the outside gardens and grounds.  

There are 3 bedrooms on the upper floor.  Two will be shown for your consideration.  The first, and most inviting, is this impressive primary bedroom. 

A floor to ceiling sliding glass door opens to a personal view balcony of the many cities below.  A dramatic open beamed peaked ceiling adds more height to an already generous space.  

The placement of the large bed, seen here, allows one to wake to, or go to sleep with a view of the entire San Francisco Bay.

This en suite primary bathroom is gleaming white, and includes a long counter space with generous storage below, and dual sinks.  A bright stall shower is just to the left.  

A second view bedroom is also on the second floor.  This room, however has two views-one to the Bay below, and one to the gardens and hillside to the right.

The lower level has yet more to offer in terms of pleasant living space.  Seen here is the family room with its own private entrance, with the house's fourth bedroom off to the far left.  

A tall, and welcoming brick fireplace anchors this large room, and its use as a family room seems ideal.  However, other options exist if the room is not needed for that use, and would include (all or in part) a spacious office, a library, an arts and crafts space, music room or playroom.  

As mentioned above, this lower bedroom is paired with a bathroom to create a comfortable living space.  

This closing view of the of this outstanding home shows the size, space, and creativity of its design conception.  

I would encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280 if this stunning home is of interest to you.  It is being offered for sale for $1,595,000.
