High in the Oakland hills is this inviting, and very comfortable home located at 9919 Caloden Street in the Grass Valley neighborhood of the city.  It offers 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms in a very generous 3506 sf of living space. 

Extremely well located, it is just moments from the favorite shopping and dining of both Montclair and San Leandro, and is especially suited for family activities.  Just above the home are two regional parks, and the Oakland Zoo, and Chabot Observatory are close by. 
A marvelous and imaginative front door swings open to welcome guest into this delightful and stylish home.   
As one travels through the home, one notices that it is bathed in soft colors and glowing light.  The light grey of the walls is perfectly designed to harmonize with the soft white trim of the window space, and the light golden color of the floors.  

A central fireplace balances the room perfectly, and is enhanced in its appeal with the charming dual scroll surround.  
A reverse perspective reveals the size of the living room, the entry hall, and the substantial view available through the large front windows.   
As will soon be seen below, the size and expanse of this home allows ample space for relaxation and entertaining.   A gleaming updated kitchen is the anchor to this concept.  Arrayed behind, and within the central island, are multiple levels of storage space for favorite china, silverware, cooking and serving pieces.

Illuminated by a handsome overhead lighting fixture, the central island becomes both a spacious work station, and serving platform for both food and drink.  

As seen here, and in subsequent views, the updated amenities include the solid surface island counter, a dishwasher, a built in oven and refrigerator.  

This wide angle view of the kitchen, adjacent dining area, and full sized family room, illustrates the abundant living space available.  
A view of the family room, with its central fireplace, reveals the abundant floorspace around which many versions of an imaginative and innovative living space can be created.   The ease of moving from indoor dining to outdoor dining is also revealed-particularly ideal when entertaining for a large gathering.  
Just steps away is this inviting deck space that provides comfortable seating and dining opportunities.  Be sure to note the further outside views included below.  
There are two primary suites in the home.  Both will be shown for your consideration.  The first, seen here, is large, with more than enough space for a large bed, nightstands, a desk, and soft sided chairs if desired.  

The door seen at the top left opens to stairs to the decks and gardens below.  

This stylish en suite bathroom is just steps away, and provides a stall shower, and updated counter and sink.  
The second primary bedroom provides a sweeping hillside view through a set of large glass doors that open onto a small balcony.  An adjacent en suite bathroom offers a stall shower, double sinks, a tub with jets, and a walk in closet.  

Just outside the home is this relaxing and shaded deck that was shown earlier just off the family room.  There is much more to the rear of the home, however.  To the right, the set of stairs lead up to the private hillside retreat seen directly below.  

This uphill space has yet to be truly utilized.  It is open to one's imagination as to how to make this a delightful and personal retreat, or party venue.  
If you enjoy the serenity of gently rolling hillsides, and quiet living, this home is one that you would treasure.  
If this home is of interest to you, I would encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,449,000.
