This handsome contemporary home sits high in the Berkeley hills, and offers a gracious and comfortable living experience that is impressively combined with the sweeping view of the Bay area, as is seen directly below.  

Located at 6822 Charing Cross Road, it offers 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms in a very spacious 2534 sf of living space, and many additional and desirable upgraded amenities.  

One of the many benefits of living in the East Bay hills is the availability of captivating Bay area views like this, that seen just below the home.  Best of all, it is one that can be enjoyed 24 hours a day, and changes beautifully in effect as the days and seasons change.  

This home is especially well placed high above the interchange of Highways 24 and 580, allowing easy access to virtually any city in the area. 

Just moments from the shopping and restaurants of Berkeley's Elmwood and Oakland's Rockridge neighborhoods, the interchange below provides an easy route to Contra Costa County to the left, and Oakland and San Francisco to the right.  

The entire frontage of the home is devoted to capturing the outstanding Bay area panorama below through the use of both floor to ceiling windows and French doors that open to an outside view balcony.  

Just steps away from the living room is this spacious family room with its own set of view windows, expansive floor space, and a large welcoming fireplace-all of which can easily become the heart of one's entertainment events, and home hospitality.  

A slightly different perspective reveals the adjacent dining area which can easily accommodates a large dining table, eight chairs, and a buffet server or cocktail bar.  

Just steps away through the tall French doors, is this delightful view balcony that provides a combination of the serenity from the nearby old growth trees with the drama of the Bay area scenes below.  This combination is always a source of pleasure, no matter what the time of day.

The kitchen has been significantly updated to please the creative home chef that will use it.  A large central island serves multiple purposes as a preparation counter, breakfast bar, and a serving site for food-whether it be buffet style or a formal dinner. 

There is an upgraded kitchen pantry, and thoughtfully placed drawers, and cabinets at every level to be easily accessed by the cook, whether during a busy event, or a lazy breakfast.  

Additional amenities include a Viking range, and stainless steel dishwasher and refrigerator.  

The design placement of the kitchen is particularly effective in that the living and family rooms are just steps away to the left, and a short passageway to the right leads immediately to the dining room--perfect for any type of food service or event.  

Another inspired updating is seen here with this view of the primary bedroom.  The warm sun flows in through three sets of view windows, and the large primary bed fits beautifully and comfortably in its own private niche, awaiting your arrival.  Softly colored hardwood floors add to the serenity.

Just steps away is this grand walk-in closet that was conceived by California Closets.  The shelving, closets, and mirrored doors are a delight, and all are a distinctive asset to the home.  

The primary bathroom provides a large, and very inviting, soaking tub, dual sinks, generous counter space, and, just above, a delightful pair of matching mirrors and lamps.  

As illustrated on the floor plans to be seen below, the lower level has what could be two bedrooms, a full bathroom, and this cozy work nook.

An additional view of the lower level reveals the location of the washer and dryer closet, and the full bathroom just across the hall.  

An aerial view of the residence reveals its generous size, handsome twin peaked roof, and the outside balcony.  

An additional view of the front of the home illustrates its handsome two car garage, off street parking for another two cars in front of the garage, and a welcoming step down front patio for additional outdoor living when desired.  

If this delightful home is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1.595,000.
