This very distinctive Hiller Highlands tri-level townhome is both luminous and welcoming as it captures the soft sunlight through the many windows along the western wall of the room.  

Located high in the hills of Oakland at 6666 Charing Cross Road, it offers 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms is a very spacious 2841 sf of living space.  

It is exceptionally well situated, and just moments away from the inviting shopping and dining pleasures found nearby in the Elmwood, College, and Montclair neighborhoods. 

The interchange of Highway 24 and 13 is close by, opening up opportunities to for easy travel to Orinda, Lafayette, and the rest of Contra Costa County.  

There are three levels in the home.  The second level, seen here, is the heart of the living and entertaining portion of the house.  It is remarkably  designed in such a way that everything needed for either activity is easily accessed, and serves its purpose well.  

The living room easily accommodates a large sofa and spacious side chairs, and the dramatic centrally placed fireplace combines with each piece to offer pleasant evenings next to its warmth.  

Just steps away is the kitchen with a wide counter that is ideal for serving a large buffet or luncheon to guests, if desired, and, to the right, there is  dining room seating for a smaller group or residents, 

An additional perspective illustrates the outstanding kitchen space that has been created-one that should impress a truly dedicated chef. 

Sweeping space is available for meal preparation on the quartz countertops, and storage space for favorite serving pieces, china, silver and glassware can be seen at every level. 

A corner counter and two chairs are seen at the far left of the picture-just perfect for a quick morning breakfast, or simple luncheon snack.    

Amenities include a dishwasher, a microwave, a range, and refrigerator.  

A reverse perspective reveals the very desirable central counter space with its wide serving stations, sink, and dishwasher.   

This perspective is especially ideal in that it reveals the expanse of windows along the far wall that capture views of the beauty of the green rolling hillsides just outside the home. 

The floor to ceiling shades allow a wide variety of configurations to create the perfect combination of light and exterior views. 

The dining area is set back-providing more space when needed, and its window shades are easily adjusted to experience the outside beauty while seated.   

Just outside the living area is one of two view decks that provide panoramic views of the scenery below.  The transition between the living room and deck is easily done, allowing a free flow from one  living space to another.   

There are three bedrooms in the home, and the most engaging one has got to be this primary suite, with its delightful living space, a charming, and always desirable window seat that is matched with a set of four picture windows.  

The room's generous floorspace easily accommodates a spacious bed, a large chest of drawers, a soft sided chair, and, if preferred, a desk and additional side chair.   

The en suite bathroom is just steps away, and viewed below.

This outstanding primary bathroom incorporates elements that elevate it to a stunning living space.  The compelling combination seen throughout the home of bright white walls and ceilings and glowing overhead lighting, is included here.  

A room wide mirror is placed above an equally wide counter that holds two large sinks and ample storage space below. 

A shower, toilet, and an inviting tub complete the offering.  

There are two additional bedrooms to be seen.  This room has a sliding glass door to the outside view balcony seen below, a large sliding door closet, and an excellent amount of floorspace.

There is no doubt that a second view balcony is very desirable, and this one serves the residents, rather than guests, to provide the quiet serenity that these sun kissed hillsides can offer.  

This third bedroom features yet another living space that offers so many amenities, and access to the exterior beauty.

As indicated in the opening paragraph, this is a tri-level home.  Up the home's keynote stairs from the living room, one discovers this very expansive top floor that is literally aglow from the carefully conceived, and well placed, overhead lighting.  Its uses are as flexible as one's needs demand.

While there is the upper level, there is also a lower level, and it is perfect as a family room or guest suite.  It is quite large, and has a built in kitchen which adds so much more to is potential uses.  

The kitchen has a set of chairs beneath the wide counter that creates a simple eating or serving space, and a stove, a refrigerator, and multi-level storage complete the scene.  

A dining table and chairs furnish a pleasant ambiance for dining while enjoying the beauty of the hills through of the pair of  wide view windows.  

This townhome is surprising in its imaginative design and size.  I encourage you to call me with your interest and questions regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,695,000.
