This large dual level home, located in the hills above Piedmont, provides the outstanding panoramic view of the San Francisco Bay area that is always in demand.  Located at 2 Abbott Way, it offers 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in a very generous 2696 sf of living space.  

The desirable open floor plan combines the very best elements of the home.  The living room and dining room merge seamlessly with each other, and are anchored by a dramatic brick fireplace, and enhanced with floor to ceiling view windows.  

A wider view reveals the proximity of the two entertainment areas that are available.  Guest are easily able to move from one to another, and out onto the view balcony.  The softly colored open beam ceilings add a balanced warmth to the space.   

The appeal of this  very comfortable dining area can be enhanced by the opening of a large sliding glass door to the view balcony.  

Whether enjoyed privately with a good book and a cup of coffee, or with friends, this inviting balcony is a delight.  

This sweeping scene of the Bay area below encompasses a panorama of both the Bay Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge, Oakland, San Francisco and the central Bay.  It is a visual experience that is always changing in light and color, and always marvelous.  

As would be anticipated in a home of this quality, there is an outstanding kitchen.  Expansive, gleaming, and well designed, it offers the most demanding home chef an impressive workspace.  

The amount of preparation space, storage space and amenities is exceptional.   Included is a stone counter, a dishwasher, a double oven, a built in gas range/cooktop, a refrigerator, and small corner desk .  There is still additional space left over for an eat in kitchen table and chairs. 

A perfectly placed family room adjoins the kitchen that allows guests and residents to confer with the chef, and each other, during meal preparation in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere.  

A large wooden deck with recreation and dining space is just the other side of the large floor to ceiling sliding glass door to the left.  

This captivating primary bedroom is generous in size and flexibility.  It can easily accommodate a variety of creative design concepts that will enhance the room, and incorporate the outside scenery.  

Close by, this outstanding primary bathroom combines the warmth and color of the floors and ceiling with the white and blue of the large mirrored counter space, and the soft white glow of the sunken bathtub.  Straight ahead, a large built in closet provides excellent storage space.  

There are four bedrooms in the home.  Three will be shown for your consideration.  This second bedroom, also with a viewing balcony, is charming, and features a floor to ceiling sliding door closet at the foot of the bed.  

The third bedroom with its soothing view of the trees, is flexible in its use, and can, if needed, be comfortably converted into an office space if all four bedrooms are not required by residents. 

If this very distinctive home, with its combination of soothing garden space and dramatic Bay area views is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  The residence is being offered for sale for $2,195,000.
