This outstanding Crocker Highlands home located at 843 Grosvenor Place, has a combination of features that make it immediately appealing.  It is set back on a large front lawn that imaginatively combines graceful shade trees and mature greenery.

It  has a beautiful facade that features a subtly bowed set of five front windows, and a handsome arched entryway.  It offers 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 2621 +/- sf of living space. 

 Worth noting is that has had $110,000 of work done in recent updating, adding yet more value to its already initial appeal.  

An engaging front door opens to invite guests into this home's comfortable charm.   Richly colored hardwood floors combine with the crisp off white walls and the stairs to enhance the initial welcoming experience for guests. 

This gleaming living room is remarkably enhanced with the presence of a set of five gently curved front windows that provide both light and beauty to the living room.  A large fireplace commands the far wall, offering warmth and charm on cool East Bay afternoons and evenings.  

A pair of built in bookcases on each end of the fireplace combine with the lengthy mantel space to furnish perfect sites for books, artwork or favored collectibles.  

Immediately adjacent is the entryway to the dining room.  When a pleasant evening of entertaining and a formal meal is planned, guests can easily move from one room to another in a moment. 

 This splendid dining room is perfectly suited to purpose.  A generous floorspace affords room for a large dining table and chairs, and a built in floor to ceiling buffet server, topped with a glass display cabinet, creates a serving space, and a display and storage space for favorite china, silverware and glassware.  

Just steps away, is this gleaming kitchen that has been impressively updated to create a perfect workspace for the most demanding of home chefs.  

With quartz clad countertops, new hardwood floors, rows of overhead supplemental lighting, and a well thought out floor plan, this is a exceptional living space.  

The island seen here can serve multiple purposes--with its seating space, it is an eat in breakfast or lunch counter, but can easily become a large preparation workspace or a serving space for a buffet, depending on need.  

Recently updated amenities also seen here include a gas range/cooktop, microwave, built in oven, refrigerator and dishwasher.  

Immediately adjacent to the kitchen is this charming built in bench that anchors a space for luncheon or breakfast table.  On cooler days, eating inside, one can view the gardens and porch through a set of glass French doors.  However, a tree shaded porch for relaxation and entertaining is just steps away.

There are three bedrooms in the residence.  The first, seen here, is the en suite primary bedroom.  Substantial in size, it can comfortably include a large bed, the sofa seen above and two side chairs, or perhaps a personal writing desk with a view to the outside gardens.  

Immediately adjacent is the primary bathroom with its spa bath and softly toned ambiance.  Close by is a large personal closet. 

 There are two other bedrooms on the same floor, and each faces the garden, and has access to a relaxing view deck.  Above, this bedroom is awash in light from the large windows to the right, and the glass door ahead.  

This larger third bedroom has more than sufficient room for a pair of double beds, and features a large sliding door closet.  

This quiet, tree topped deck is a perfect compliment to, and quiet retreat, for, the two rear bedrooms seen above.  

This relaxing lower level floor space has been completely renovated to create a spacious and efficient home office with built in bookcase and storage space, and a subtle display space for art or collectibles.  

Just off the kitchen is this expansive rear deck space that is equally perfect for quiet moments under the shade of the old growth trees above, or for an afternoon tea or luncheon.  

Stepping down from the rear deck however, reveals this irresistible rear yard that is a just awaiting parties, holiday events, and guests to enjoy this engaging space.  

If this delightful home is of interest to you, please call me with your questions and interest at (510) 517-6280.  The residence is being offered for sale for $2,100,000.
