One of the pleasures of living in the Montclair hills of Oakland is the availability of homes with the unique combination of Bay area views, and Tahoe like living. 

Nestled among the well established hillside trees is this outstanding home located at 6589 Oakwood Drive.   It offers 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms in a very spacious 3331 sf +/- of living space.  

What a pleasure to be able to enjoy this view each day-one that is changing constantly as the light and seasons change. This SF Bay, two bridge panorama, is most certainly a daily gift. 

Just off the deck seen above, is this imaginatively conceived family room.  It is perfectly designed to provide effortless indoor/outdoor living, utilizing the presence of a sliding glass door and companion window that offer both expansive views, and immediate ease of access in either direction.  

The room is anchored by a welcoming, and imaginative fireplace that is paired with inviting window seats on either side.  

This gleaming kitchen, just off the family room, reflects the purposeful updating that has been done, and the careful consideration regarding placement of appliances, cabinets, and the desirable central island, to create this very effective workspace.  

Updated amenities include a free standing range, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and a very useful central island that doubles as a breakfast island and workspace.  

Just steps away is this large living room that glows with light.  Its off white colored walls combine perfectly with the golden toned bamboo flooring.  An expansive sofa and two soft side chairs fit perfectly into this space that is dramatically enhanced with the presence of the the commanding picture window.  

Also adjacent to the kitchen, is this pleasant dining space that is perfect for occasions when formal dining is preferred.  It easily accommodates a lengthy dining table with space for a buffet and cocktail bar. 

There are four bedrooms in the residence.  Three will be shown for your consideration.  The first, above, is the primary bedroom.  A floor to ceiling window, with its views of the striking exterior beauty, greets one every morning.  

This distinctive living space is enhanced with a large en suite bathroom seen below, and a substantial walk in closet seen on the left.  

As would be expected in a home of this quality, the primary bathroom is  immediately appealing.  An enticing soaking tub is to the right, and a stall shower has been placed at the far left wall.  A full length cabinet with generous storage is topped with dual sinks and large, well lit mirrors.  

A second of the four bedrooms has been effectively converted into an congenial workout space, complete with a large wall mirror.  If this use is not needed as is, the room could also be used as a home office, music room, play room, or as the original concept-a bedroom.  

This comfortable third bedroom easily accommodates a large bed with plenty of floor space remaining for soft side chairs, a sofa, or  bookcases and display cabinets. 

Located above Oakland's Montclair Village, this tree sheltered house is close to favorite shopping and dining centers that include Montclair, Rockridge and Elmwood. 

Choice hiking and biking trails and regional parks are close by, as are Highways 13, and 24 that provide efficient access to both Oakland, San Francisco, and Contra Costa County.  

As one moves from morning to evening compared to the opening scene above, different impressions and changing light arrive to be experienced and appreciated. 

If this outstanding home is of interest to you, please call me at (510) 517-6280 regarding it.  It is being offered for sale for $1,829,000.
