This remarkable home is perfectly located in the Leona Heights neighborhood of the Oakland hills at 5727 Leona Street.  It is warm and inviting, and has been fully remodeled throughout- the effect of which will be seen below.  

It is exceptionally spacious, offering 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a very expansive 2566 sf of living space.  For those who like a perfect mix of hillside serenity, and easy proximity to Oakland, Montclair and Highways 580 and 13, this is an ideal choice.  

The living room, and the remainder of the home, are uniquely characterized by glowing light from a variety of sources that create a pleasant and inviting ambiance. 

By example, and worth noting, as one tours the entire house, is the presence of exceptional overhead supplemental lighting, unique and impressive skylights, and the diversity of view windows.  

Also adding to the room's uniqueness is the remarkable fireplace which commands center stage with its size, and intricate marble and tile frontage.  

A reverse perspective reveals the easy transition from the living room to the kitchen and dining area-perfect when entertaining guests.  

This bright and softly colored dining room is just off the kitchen, and can easily accommodate a dining table and eight chairs, and a buffet or wet bar.   It has large windows with views to the rear yard.

One of the most outstanding upgrades to this residence is that of the kitchen, as seen above.  Substantial working and preparation space surrounds the entire room.  All the countertops are quartz, and and the  space is supplemented by the central island, seen above.  

Stainless steel appliances are offered, and include a 48 inch gas range, dishwasher, and refrigerator.  A handsome overhead skylight adds light and drama, and that incoming light reflects beautifully off the tiles.

The far end of the kitchen easily accommodates a comfortable  breakfast bar that features an outstanding view over the the treetops.  

Additional eating space for a quick and casual meal can be created by the use of small side chairs pulled up to the central island, as seen here. 

There are three bedrooms in the house.  Two will be shown for your consideration.  The first, seen above, is this outstanding primary bedroom. It is large, and with more than enough space for a king sized bed, a pair of side tables, a chest of drawers, and a comfortable side chair, it is a perfect living space.  It is en suite, with the entrance to the bathroom at the top left of the picture.  

This master bathroom represents another example of the artfully conceived updating that is seen throughout the house.  A trio of three skylight windows combine with the arched windows over the appealing bathtub to provide subtle lighting that combines effectively with the set of lamps over the sink.  

The long countertop features dual sinks, and a mirror that runs the width of the counter.  Generous storage space is available directly below, and a shower, not seen, is also provided,  

A second bedroom, seen here, displays an outstanding color palate for floor and walls, and a view window.  An additional bathroom is just steps away.  

In addition to the main floor, there is an imaginative lower level-a large studio space that has a full kitchen, complete with refrigerator, a gas range, and generous overhead storage space. There is also a bathroom at this level. 

This room, as with all the others in the home, has been upgraded with  white oak wood flooring that contrasts perfectly with the dramatic overhead wooden beams.  

An opposite viewpoint illustrates the amount of floorspace that is available, and the potential usage of this space.  

Equally unique is this lengthy bonus space that is accompanied by an overhead loft, seen at the rear of the room.  A private entrance to the house is to the right.  

The overhead loft, seen here, has so many potential uses.  Among them could be an office, an arts and crafts room, a music room, or a playroom, to suggest just a few.  

The rear of the home features multiple terraces that invite the creation of gardens of plants, trees, and assorted greenery.  A large deck awaits parties and special events.  

The entrance to the home is impressive.  A gently sloped hillside of grass and lush trees leads to the home.

Worth noting-the garage, seen here, combined with the space directly in front, provides six off street parking spaces.  

If this home is of interest to you, I would encourage you to call me promptly regarding it at (510) 517-6820.  It is being offered for sale for $1,049,888.
