This glowing home is alight both day and night due to the impressive collection of expansive windows that open onto views of Oakland and San Francisco Bay just below.  Comfortably settled in amongst its own well established garden, and on a tree filled hillside, it is a welcoming retreat for residents and guests alike.  Located at 4207 Huntington Street in the Redwood Heights neighborhood in Oakland, it offers 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 3269 +/- sf of living space.  

Ideally located, it is is just moments from the pleasant shops and restaurants of Montclair Village, and just below the many parks, biking and hiking trails just up the hillside.  With prompt access to Highways 13 and 580, Berkeley, and downtown Oakland, are easily and promptly accessed.  

Guests stepping into this delightful home are immediately welcomed by this spacious living room and dining room combination that is designed in such a way as to provide a spectacular view of the San Francisco Bay area year round.  It is an impressive way to entertain, but also it is ideal as a location from to enjoy quiet moments by the fireplace on cooler winter evenings, or, just as easily, slide open the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors on days when the weather is perfect.  

Directly opposite the sliding glass doors is this very dramatic, and truly expansive, stone fireplace that most certainly makes this house a home.  Its unique mantlepiece provides an ideal space for displaying favorite collectibles.  More space for artwork, collectibles or books is available directly to the right, and completes  the entire presentation, creating both drama and style.  

As seen here, an evening view of the scene below reveals the impressive expanse of trees, homes, and the Bay area beyond, from two decks-one off the living room, and another from the dining room.  

This perspective provides an excellent representation of the size of the dining area and living area combined, and reveals the generous amount of living space available.  

Just off the living room, is a congenial family room on the right that merges seamlessly with home's kitchen to the left.  The family room has its own refreshment and cooking amenities, but the nearby kitchen is equally effective in providing immediate and varied meals that allow larger scale events, if desired. 

 One thing that becomes immediately obvious in this view of the kitchen, is the light filled ambiance that is provided, in good part, from the glowing sunlight outside the large view window.  The impressive amount of cabinet space is ideal for a serious chef.  There are drawers, shelves and cabinets available at virtually every level for storage of favorite dishes and glassware, as well as serving and preparation pieces.

A second view reveals yet more work and storage space, and the handsome gas range cooktop. 

There are three bedrooms on the upper floor of the home.  The first, seen here, features a sliding glass door that opens provide a pleasant view, and, combined with generously sized floor space, and multiple sets of sliding wooden closet doors creates a charming living space.  

A second, very comfortable, en suite bedroom space features a gleaming bathroom, and a accompanying closet.  

A third bedroom here is a bit larger, and more flexible in its floor plan design.  The built in bookcase, and view windows, add to its desirability.  

The lower level of the residence is very generous in size, and as such, extremely flexible in its versatility.  It is currently being used as a bedroom, and there is a built in bar/serving area available for entertaining.  There is also a bathroom.  It could offer numerous potential uses, depending on need. Office space, media room, a library, music or play room are just some options possible.  Large windows and doors lead to the exterior yard.  

A view from the exterior reveals the additional amenities that make this space so distinctive and appealing.  To the right, is a built in floor to ceiling bookcase, and to the left, is an impressive brick fireplace awaiting an opportunity to bring cheer on chilly days.  

If this stunning, gleaming home is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly with your questions and interest at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,095,000.
