The Crocker Highlands neighborhood of Oakland has always been the location of handsome traditionally styled homes that are characterized by pleasing architecture, gracious and varied gardens, and gently winding streets.
This home, at 1065 Hubert Road represents all of those elements, and more. It offers 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms in approximately 2164 sf of living space.
Its location is especially appreciated by residents. Close to the varied shops and restaurants of Grand Lake, Lake Shore and Montclair Village, its proximity to both Highways 13 and 580 provides efficient transportation to Oakland, San Francisco, and Contra Costa County.
This charming front porch offers a sunny welcome, and is immediately inviting as a pleasant setting for guests. The gracefully arched front door, with its distinctively designed door panels is equally pleasing.
Entry into the front room reveals a home that is dedicated to gracious living and entertaining. The far wall is highlighted by a pair of French doors that sweep open to an outside balcony, and a mirror between them picks up both interior and exterior light.
The richly decorated and expansive fireplace anchors the living area, and the long sofa and twin chairs illustrate the available floorspace.
A closer view of the French doors reveals the pleasant outdoor balcony space and expansive neighborhood views.
Just off the living room, is this handsome library and office space that is awash in light from a multi-paned wall of windows.
Worthy of note is the rich wooden trimmed entryway, floor molding, and crown molding that is seen here, and throughout the residence that reflects the quality of construction that has been invested in the home.
A large, multi-shelved built in bookcase invites displays of books, arts and favored collectibles.
The formal dining room is perfectly placed for pleasant evening meals, or a casual luncheon. The set of French doors to the right open onto the front porch for an after dinner dessert or beverage.
This beautifully updated kitchen is spacious, offers expansive floor space, and very generous counter space for efficient food preparation. The imaginative ceiling treatment, walls of windows and the softly colored hardwood floors create an atmosphere that is immediately welcoming.
A reverse perspective reveals a breakfast bar that is easily accommodated by the large central island. Multiple drawers and cabinets provide space for choice dishes, glassware, and serving pieces.
As indicated earlier, this home's concept is one of gracious living, but it has now been reconceived to include yet more impressive living space that is well suited to larger events and splendid hospitality.
Here the corner space of the kitchen, with its eat in niche, opens to a large view deck that allows guests to move easily from one area to another.
The exterior desk is a generously sized wrap around space that can accommodate a large dinner party, or a special holiday event.
There are four bedrooms in the home, and all are on the second floor. Three will be shown for your consideration. The first, seen here, is comfortably sized, has two large sets of casement windows, and a mirrored closet door.
The home's primary suite is substantial in size, with room for multiple chairs, a chest of drawers and night stands. It is fitted with impressive sets of windows that provide both city views, and tree lined views of the neighborhood.
The primary bathroom is gleaming, and offers a large walk in shower
A third bedroom is a bit unique in that it features a distinctive open beam ceiling, and space for a desk, or perhaps a window seat.
If this beautiful, private, and well established formal yard, and this stunning updated home have caught your attention, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280. The residence is being offered for sale for $1,875,000.
