This bright and welcoming mid-century style home sits comfortably in the Oakland hills in the Montclair District.  Located at 5820 Colton Boulevard, and offering 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, it well represents its namesake architectural style.

 Floor to ceiling windows along the front of this spacious home invite in both the warm outdoor sun, and the compelling and sweeping hillside views.

A reverse perspective highlights the marvelous central fireplace that anchors the room, and the drama and expanse of the overhead open beam ceiling.  

The golden colored hardwood floors harmonize beautifully with the wooden beams that surround the entrance to the exterior deck, as is seen below.   

Just steps away is the dining area that fits perfectly between the kitchen and the living room, allowing an easy transition from one location to another when entertaining guests, and providing meal service.   

To the right, a door leads to an outside view deck and encouraging an easy and open flow for guests when one is hosting parties. 

The home's location above wooded Montclair affords impressive and relaxing hillside views, the effects of which are ever changing due to the time of day, and season of the year.  

The bright updated kitchen is an especially effective workspace.  Each element that makes it appealing is easily reached, and well thought out in its placement.  The counter space allows easy food preparation, and the storage space for favorite china and serving pieces is perfect.  

Adding more appeal, the overhead skylight combines with the bright supplemental lighting to to enhance the entire working space.  

The stove/cooktop, and long workspace to the right, further illustrate the efficient combination of amenities that contribute to an ease of meal service.  

There are three bedrooms in the home.  Two are upstairs, the first of which is seen here.  Very generous in size, it continues the home's conceptual theme of overhead beamed ceilings, and restful hillside views.  

A second bedroom on that floor is enhanced with a stylish, and very appealing overhead skylight.  

Both bedrooms seen above utilize this updated, and handsome, central bathroom.  

Returning to the main floor, one discovers this inviting, and very comfortable living space that is the home's family room.  

An adjacent upgraded bathroom is available for use for both the family room above, and the lower bedroom seen below.  

Especially engaging, this lower bedroom continues the concept of capturing incoming sunlight and cheer during the daytime. Additionally, it has direct access to the home's backyard through the sliding glass door to the rear.  

Worth noting, an outstanding asset to be revealed.  Attached to the main home, but with its own entrance. is this unique and very effective living space that can be utilized as one's own private office and workspace, if desired. 

With direct access to the welcoming  back yard, and its well conceived overhead lighting, it is an outstanding amenity.  

This well established, and especially inviting back yard, features numerous opportunities for entertaining and relaxing--whichever appeals any hour of the day.   Lush, well established greenery provides a perfect surrounding for any of those choices,  

Directly opposite, is the remainder of the garden space and the view of the tall fencing and old growth trees that insure privacy and serenity.  Above, the deck space has additional space for tables and chairs, at that level, as well.  

An evening view from the front porch captures the tranquility that is available in this unique hillside location.  

If this welcoming and innovative home is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,295,000.
