Located at 6787 Chelton Drive, in the hills of Oakland, this home offers this gracious living room with it dramatic vaulted ceilings and expansive floor space.  It manages to combine the softly colored walls and rugs with the subtle lighting from windows and overhead lighting, to create a truly stunning living space.  

It features 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a spacious 2514 sf +/- of living space, and is ideally located in the hills of Oakland's Montclair neighborhood.   Close to everything, the shops and restaurants of Rockridge, and Berkeley's Elmwood district are just some of the options provided by Highway 13 located at the base of the hill.  

Just a few steps up from the living room on a slightly raised wooden platform, is the spacious dining room that is perfectly placed for gracious entertaining.   The dining room floorspace easily accommodates a large dining table and buffet.

A reverse perspective of the living room reveals the expansive fireplace that anchors the far wall.  While it is generous in size, and an ideal source of warmth on cooler Bay area evenings, it is equally subtle in its presence, blending beautifully into the calming colors that characterize this space.  
A view from the dining table encompasses the extensive space available to the far windows, buffet and fireplace--all of which is exceptionally suitable to a variety of design concepts and presentations. 
This cheerful wrap around kitchen is perfectly suited for efficient food preparation.  Everything is easily reached and stored, providing an ideal work space.  The white tile counters combine handsomely with the black color of the appliances.  Additionally, the whole kitchen seems to glow when these elements are combined with the outdoor light streaming in from the large picture windows, and overhead skylight. 

Just across the kitchen counter is this charming eat-in kitchen that is ideally located for a early morning breakfast or lazy afternoon lunch.  Just steps away, and easily accessed through a tall glass door, is a delightful view deck and outdoor corner table and chairs.   

There are three large en suite bedrooms in the residence.  The first, seen here, is surrounded by windows, and centered around a pair of doors that open to an outside sheltered deck.   Because of its size, the room can be conceived in a variety of presentations that incorporate the indoor/outdoor harmony.    

Stepping outside from the bedroom above, residents are greeted with this pleasant view deck that is sheltered among the surrounding trees.  Its presence allows one a to capture the serenity that these trees provide.

A second bedroom is uniquely designed with a set-back wall space for the bed, thereby offering more floor space for favorite bedroom pieces.  

This distinctive third bedroom is unique due to its generous closet space.  For those who value substantial clothing and storage space, this is an ideal format.  Just through the central open door ahead, is the room's en suite bathroom.

This lengthy view balcony provides a perfect venue for entertaining friends.  Just off the kitchen and doors from the front room, it provides a means by which guests can move freely about while enjoying a pleasant dinner buffet or casual afternoon tea.
