High in the Piedmont Pines neighborhood of Oakland is this captivating, and recently built, contemporary view home located at 6645 Exeter Drive.  It offers 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms in a very spacious 2735 sf of living space.  

With two view balconies, and an outstanding open floor plan, it is especially attractive to those who enjoy entertaining.  The gracious interior space offers a variety of potential design configurations that allows one to create their own distinctive living space.  

In addition to its architectural features, it especially unique in that it is solar powered and "designed to be energy independent, and have maximum water conservation of plumbing fixtures and landscaping" as represented by the seller.  

The first of the view balconies is seen here, just below the entry walkway.  With bench style seating, and room for assorted tables and chair configurations, it could easily accommodate friends for a lazy afternoon lunch.  The sliding glass door opens directly into the kitchen for ease of food service.  

This engaging entry is both dramatic and creative.  The variety of black color represented by the door, railings, and window trim, harmonizes beautifully with the soft off white walls.  

The home's entry door opens to reveal this simple, yet effective, hallway that provides a  pathway to the left to the main living space, and to the steps to the upper bedrooms.  Not to be missed is the soft lighting from above.  

As one descends the stairs from above, they are able to enter this truly gracious living space that is immediately welcoming.  Two large sofas invite one to relax and enjoy both the beauty of the outside scene, and the warmth of the interior space. 

Here, and throughout the home, the off white walls, and warm wooden floors, add an additional serenity.

A reverse perspective reveals the nearby dining area at the base of the stairs, and the living area's high ceilings that are enhanced with soft pin lighting

Holding pride of place is the dramatic kitchen space that combines a generous workspace with an outstanding collection of amenities that will please the most demanding of chefs.  

The commanding kitchen island, with its quartz countertops, provides an outstanding number of opportunities for use while meals are being prepared.   It can provide seating (on the right) for guests to share preparation conversation with the chef, or it can serve as a breakfast or lunch spot when needed.  

It also has multiple storage spaces underneath for favorite dishes, serving or cooking utensils, and can also be a serving platform for buffet service or cocktails.   

All utilities in the home are electric, and the appliances included here are the dishwasher, electric range/cooktop, microwave and refrigerator.  

Another point of view reveals the kitchen's proximity to the home's front balcony, mentioned above, making meal service there a breeze.

At the opposite end of the kitchen is this charming eat in kitchen nook with two sets of windows that capture the rolling hillside views just outside.  To the right is door that opens out onto the balcony seen below.  

As mentioned earlier, there are two view balconies in the home.  The first was seen above.  This second engaging retreat is just off the living room, and offers dramatic western views of both sunsets and sunrises.  There is no doubt that this will be an ideal gathering place for friends before or after meals.  

There are four bedrooms in the home.  Three will be shown for your consideration. 

The first, seen above, is the home's comfortable primary bedroom.  A large window to the right captures both the light and the beauty of the surrounding hillsides.    

The primary bedroom's en suite bathroom is seen here, and below.  Aglow with light, it features two large sinks topped with large mirrors and enhanced with generous storage space below.  

Also included, and just steps away, is this very inviting bathtub that has tree top views of the neighborhood provided by a set of large picture windows.  

A second en suite bedroom is large enough to easily accommodate twin beds and side chair.

Another bedroom is available with its own private bathroom, and has been converted to an office use-ideal if all the home's four bedrooms are not needed for that specific use.

If this outstanding hillside home is of interest to you, please call me with your questions regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,950,000.
