Located among the long established woodlands of the popular Piedmont Pines neighborhood of Oakland, this impressive home offers an imaginative and inviting welcome to both guests and residents. Situated at 6643 Aitken Drive, it features a total of 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and approximately 1910 sf of living space. Just moments from the favorite shops and dining of Montclair Village and Rockridge, it is close to schools, and multiple public parklands.
A front hall entryway leads to the steps downward into this striking sunken living room scene that is paired with a spacious sliding glass doors to the outside view porch that is seen in the view above. Additional light flows into the room from the the multiple skylights that are placed along the stunning peaked open beamed ceiling above.
An addition perspective reveals an attractive and welcoming fireplace, and views to the nearby formal dining room and kitchen.
Perfectly located just off the living room, is this dining room space that is designed to add the maximum flexibility to its use. Easily developed as formal dining area, and a perfect spot to entertain guests for an evening meal, it is equally flexible, with its location just off the kitchen, to be an ideal spot for a casual meal or luncheon-all the while allowing contact with the chef during meal preparation.
Any chef would be pleased with this stunning kitchen. Recently upgraded, it provides a wrap around stone counter offering plentiful work space, and a breakfast bar site on the dining room side for the quick breakfast or lunch. Other amenities include a dishwasher, double oven, gas range/cooktop, refrigerator, and skylights.
There are two spacious wooden decks in the home. Both overlook long established trees and hillside greenery, creating an ideal site for entertaining, or just relaxing on a pleasant sunny afternoon. This is the deck just off the living room as was seen above.
There are four bedrooms in the home. Two will be shown for your consideration and review. The bedroom above is an extraordinary master bedroom that is located on the lower level of the residence. With sliding glass doors opening out onto a handsome deck, it is immensely appealing as a truly delightful retreat.
Another angle reveals the impressive size of this room. Worthy of note is expansive closet space, and the virtually room width mirrored closet doors.
A second bedroom shown here also provides deck access and verdant views. It is hard to resist the quiet and gentle atmosphere that each of these rooms possess.
The lower level balcony is equally spacious and serviceable, and a bit more private than the upper one that opens onto the living room. It could become a pleasant and peaceful oasis of calm at the end of a long day.
The front of the home seen here furnishes immediate off street parking into the two car garage, and the entryway to the right leads to the pleasant stairs down to the front deck and the home.
This descent from the street level to the front door and mini-deck area is delightful. It offers a gentle space for relaxation among the surrounding trees and plantings, and a unique greeting to guests.
If this home, or similar one appeals to you, I encourage you to call me with your questions regarding all. I can be reached at (510) 517-6280. It is being offered for sale for $1,040,000.
