The Oakland hills offer some truly impressive Bay area views, and homes here are highly prized for this spectacular scenery.  One especially outstanding offering is this home located at 15038 Broadway Terrace.  Sitting high above the city, this residence features 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, in a spacious 3472 sf of living space.  

 As would be expected, much of the design of this residence has been planned with the intent to capture the stunning views that surround the home.  Beginning with the living room, the interior plan has been created incorporating flat planes, open floor space, high ceilings, and large walls of glass throughout that are specifically built to highlight the outside panorama.  Be sure to observe the dramatic fireplace that captures the essence of height and drama.

A reverse view of the living room gives yet another aspect of the dramatic vertical walls and multi-level construction.  The whiteness of the walls contrasts beautifully with the warmly colored wooden floors, and with the steps that lead up to a gracious formal dining room.  

What a pleasure it is to be able open the generously sized living room sliding glass doors and step outside onto this remarkable outdoor patio that emcompasses the sweeping expanse of the cities below.  

Just a few steps up from the living room is this gleaming formal dining room, complete with its own four window view.  With plentiful space for a built in cabinet, and an inset area below the windows, there is ample room for serving food, and storing  favorite glassware and dishes.  

A reverse angle of the dining room reveals steps that lead up to the newly updated kitchen.  Their mutual proximity allows the serving of meals to guests to become a smooth and pleasing activity.  

This enticing kitchen, with its warmly colored cabinets and wood flooring, is ideally placed for serving food inside and outside the residence.  It has plentiful counter and storage space, and comes complete with a gas/range cooktop, refrigerator and dishwasher.  Recessed lighting and ceiling lights create a warm glow throughout the room. 

The mention made above that the kitchen is well placed is obvious when seen in this view.  Immediately adjacent to the kitchen is a cozy family room which is perfect for eating a casual luncheon, or conferring with the cook while meals are being made.  Also available is a two seat counter space that is ideal for a quick breakfast while on the run to work or school. 

Moving through the family room, a direct pathway has been created to go directly outside into this inviting patio area.  Guests can move easily with food and beverages from the kitchen to the outdoors, or stop at the family room on cooler days.  

 There are five bedrooms in the home, three of which will be shown for your consideration.  Without a doubt, the master bedroom shown here, is the most impressive of all.  Expansive in size, it is anchored by a central window seat that is immediately charming and grand in its design.  Be sure to note the door to the right that opens up to a private patio area.  

An expanded view of the window seat area reveals all that it has to offer one on a warm and sunny afternoon.  Soft cushions, plentiful reading or relaxing space, and windows that open to the outside to allow in warm breezes.  

Immediately adjacent to the master bedroom is this delightful, and exceeding flexible, bonus room.  Perfect for an office, a retreat or study, its use is only limited by one's needs and imagination.  

The master bedroom bathroom is absolutely stunning.  With a spacious bathtub complete with view, to the adjacent shower and double sinks, it is perfect.  A full length mirror, plentiful under counter storage, and well thought out lighting completes the picture of a well planned space.  

To complete the appeal of the master suite complex, just off the bedroom is this charming private patio featuring sun drenched scenery.  

A second bedroom continues the theme of bright white walls, softly colored carpeting, and splendid Bay area views.  

This cozy nursery space is particularly appealing, but of course, if not needed, has multiple other uses.  

Here is a warmly lit space that is currently being used as an office, and just the right size for this particular function.  

If you would like to enjoy this view at dawn or sunset, it is available .  Please contact me with your interest about this or a similar home that has caught your interest, and I would be pleased to furnish you with more information.  It is being offered for sale for $1,595,000.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.
