This dramatic Tudor style home has been recently listed at 6273 Ruthland Road.  Located in the gentle hills of Oakland's Montclair neighborhood on a quiet cul de sac, it features sweeping Bay area views and gracious living.  It offers 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in a generous 2576 +/-sf of living space.  

It is located close to everything the area has to offer. With hiking and biking trails of nearby regional reserves , the shops and restaurants of Montclair, Elmwood and Rockridge, and the proximity to Highways 13 and 24 for easy commuting, this home bears serious consideration.  

The design concept of this home is one that is committed to light and space.   The far walls of the living room are literally walls of glass that provide dramatic Bay area views.  

The innovative open beam ceiling above creates additional open space and light, while overhead supplemental lighting completes the effect. 

The center of attention has to be the striking fireplace that anchors the living area.   With its carefully chosen tile facing and geometric surround, it features a display mantel for art and collectibles.  

The far wall of the living room is composed of multiple panes of windows that look directly out to the soft tree lined greenery just beyond.  

To the right is an expansive window that provides a dramatic view of the SF Bay, Oakland, and San Francisco.   This unique corner has to be one of the best among the many desirable elements in this home.  

What a pleasure to be able to enjoy this outstanding view year round as the seasons and the light change.  Directly ahead is this iconic view of Oakland, SF Bay, and San Francisco.  

Just off the living room to the left, is this delightful office space that is  encompassed by a wall of bay windows.  Perfectly placed, it offers views of San Francisco Bay to the right, and soothing greenery below.  This use of this space is as flexible as one's needs determine.  

As would be expected in a home of this quality, a formal dining room is featured.  With generous space for entertaining, it has an additional inset space for an expansive buffet server, and a flexible floor plan.  

An expanded view reveals the size and charm of this handsome living room and dining room combination.  From the impressive pair of coffered ceilings to its softly colored hardwood floors, it is striking.  

This kitchen offers a very efficient workspace that most home chefs will treasure.  Everything is within easy reach, all the preparation needs are met, and the atmosphere is inviting.  

A desirable breakfast bar is doubly effective as an eat in kitchen counter and preparation space.   A sit down desk for meal planning and day to day home management, is topped with multiple levels of shelving for cookbooks and reference texts.  

Expansive overhead skylights are combined with supplemental lighting to create a pleasant ambiance.  

Additional amenities include an electric range cooktop, a dishwasher, a microwave, a built in oven, and a refrigerator.  

There are four bedrooms in the residence.  Three will be shown for your consideration.  The first, above, is the home's primary bedroom.  Located on the main floor, it is expansive in size, and can accommodate choice furnishings with ease.  

The primary bathroom is striking.  A set of dual sinks are paired with large matching mirrors, and generous storage space below.  Additional storage for favorite linens and towels is steps away.   Glowing overhead lighting brings a warmth to the room.

A large decorative bathtub is matched with a handsome walk-in shower to complete the entire experience that is offered by this space.  

A second bedroom can easily welcome a set of beds and additional decorative pieces, and additionally offer a touch of a Bay area view.

A third bedroom has large sunny windows and an en suite bathroom as an additional feature.

A pleasing private backyard awaits both parties and special events, and, when desired, a quiet retreat at the end of the day.
