This broad hillside driveway, bordered with its lush hillside garden and unique sentinel style side trees, creates an impressive curb appeal, and welcomes both residents and guests to this home at 780 Glendome Circle in Oakland,   It offers 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a generous 2376 sf of living space.  

It is exceptionally well located-just moments from the nearby charming Glenview shops and restaurants, and not far from popular Montclair Village, and Highways 13 and 24, both of which offer efficient transportation to Oakland, San Francisco and Contra Costa County. 

This radiant home has been thoroughly renovated to take advantage of its gentle hillside location, and to capture all that the location can offer.  Above, is the expansive softly colored living room, and the cross balcony that leads to the second floor bedrooms.  

A reverse perspective reveals the stunning floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors that capture the warmth and beauty of the trees and gardens below. 

Not to be missed, is the marvelous central fireplace which truly comes into its own on cooler Bay area afternoons and evenings.  

Access through the doors leads to an engaging view balcony, and encourages a free flow of movement from one living space to another when entertaining, and is a passage to the large outdoor porch to be seen below.  

Living in the hills above Oakland allows one to enjoy the ever changing beauty of the Bay area below, and this home's vista does not disappoint.  

Just steps away from the living room is this handsome dining room.  It easily accommodates a large dining table, six chairs, and a buffet server, and is an ideal spot for entertaining, no matter what the time of day, as daylight gives way to evening, and the overhead lighting is engaged.  

As with the living room, a sliding glass door opens to the adjacent view balcony.  

A gleaming, and impressively updated kitchen is just off the dining room, and is an equally ideal workspace for both quiet evening meals at home, or for hosting parties or luncheons for multiple guests.  

Worthy of note, and seen in both views of the kitchen, is the generous amount of solid surface counter preparation spaces that can be seen throughout the room.  A charming bay window over the sink adds additional sunlight to the space.  

A reverse aspect reveals the very notable results of the kitchen's updating.  Ample, and multi-level cabinetry surrounds the large refrigerator, the gas range/cooktop, and the dishwasher.  

Also on the main floor is this very congenial guest suite that features an en suite bathroom, and a personal view balcony.  

This exterior balcony is most certainly a pleasant spot for an afternoon cup of tea and a good book, or as a quiet retreat on a lovely day.  

The distinctive set of stairs at the rear of the living room leads upwards to the second floor, and to additional bedrooms.  This balcony area is enhanced with soft light from the surrounding skylights, the off white walls, and the golden colored hardwood floors.  

There are three bedrooms upstairs.  Two will be shown for your consideration.  The first, seen above, is the primary bedroom, complete with its own Bay area view, tall, open beam peaked ceiling, and subtle overhead lighting.  

A reverse angle of the bedroom reveals an nearby closet, and immediately adjacent is an en suite bathroom.  

A second upstairs bedroom has a far wall of Bay view windows, and an adjacent en suite bathroom.  

Moving to another area of the home-its lower level-one is pleasantly surprised to discover this very flexible living space  

Just a few potential options for its use would included a family room, a bedroom, an office, a play room, or a music room.  

There is no question that this house is especially well designed for entertaining.  The fenced upper decking provides a long row of seating and plentiful additional space for tables and chairs.

It is further complimented with a pergola styled seating area which can easily double as a dining area, or a serving platform for a buffet or barbeque.  

The far end of the deck provides numerous opportunities for hosting special events, and entertaining a large gathering of friends.  The views, as seen above and below, are striking.  

If this home, its location, and this Bay area panorama, is of interest to you, please call me with your questions regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,249,000.
