Just moments from the popular retail and business scenes of Berkeley and Oakland, this truly remarkable home awaits those that will treasure the Tahoe like atmosphere of beauty and pleasant serenity that this home represents.
Located at 7172 Buckingham Boulevard in Berkeley, it offers 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms in a spacious 3276 +/- sf of living space.
This striking living space offers an impressive open floor plan that combines gracious living and entertaining with the restful ambiance and warmth created by the softly colored exterior sunlight flowing in from multiple levels of windows and doors.
A reverse perspective reveals the generous amount of floorspace within the room that can inspire a variety of design conceptions-especially ones that will combine easily with the indoor-outdoor flow to and from the exterior view balcony.
This imaginative combination of dining and cooking space reveals an efficient and striking use of floorspace. Just steps from the living room, the centrally located island seen here is equally effective as a cocktail bar, an eat in breakfast counter, or a serving platform for buffet meals.
This well designed kitchen provides an outstanding workspace for the creative home chef as is seen here, and in the view below. Updated appliances, plentiful stone counterspace, and generous floorspace all enhance the experience.
A charming eat in kitchen space offers three large picture windows that capture the restful views of the well established trees and exterior garden- a perfect spot for an afternoon cup of tea and a good book.
Just steps from the kitchen is the home's inviting dining room. For the special times when a formal luncheon or a quiet meal with a few friends is in order, this space is perfectly suited to that need.
Just opposite the dining room, and at the front of the home, is this welcoming formal living room with its richly colored hardwood floors that combine handsomely with the softly colored walls and ceiling.
There are four bedrooms in the residence. Above is a view of the primary bedroom which has been conceived out of two former separate bedrooms, and as such, is significantly larger.
The spacious central living space, already partially created, awaits a sofa, soft chairs, a coffee table, or perhaps a personal desk and side chair, or any additional pieces that would complete its contribution to the concept of an integrated and welcoming setting.
Floor to ceiling windows furnish ever changing views of the surrounding tree-filled hillsides, and a sliding glass door offers instant access to a private covered personal patio.
This inviting sun filled outdoor balcony with slate floors, is a true asset as a calm and restful retreat.
As would be anticipated, the distinctive primary bathroom is remarkable. A large tub encompasses much of the space allotted, and its two tree top windows add a soothing touch to the ambiance.
A lengthy counter with dual sinks, and matching mirrors compliment the tub, and the wood and tile color tones are carefully matched.
A second bedroom with views and sliding glass door access to the exterior balcony is seen here.
This second room can also accommodate a central living space, and a creative floorplan to enhance its ultimate potential.
The upper level of the home provides an additional bonus room that is currently being used as an office space, but other uses could include a library, arts and crafts room, or perhaps a music room.
Just outside the bonus room is this special tree top balcony that affords views of the hillside neighborhood and a partial bay view.
This serenity, when settled among this green space, is one that is always available, and yet changes daily as the seasons and the light change.
