This glowing house, with its floor to ceiling windows, and expansive sliding glass doors, is specifically designed to capture the lush greenery and sweeping Bay area views just outside the home.
Ideally located at 6848 Armour Drive, it is close to Piedmont, Rockridge and Montclair, and offers 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms in a generous 2728 sf of living space.
Every element of the home is conceived with the goal of creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The soft grey colors of the walls and carpeting blend beautifully with the dramatic whiteness of the trim around the exceptional open beamed ceiling and distinctive fireplace.
The porch just outside of the glass doors runs across the entire length of the living room and dining room, and invites guests and residents to step outside to enjoy all below.
This spacious formal dining room is flexible enough for a much larger dining suite if preferred, but is equally suitable as is, with light reflecting off multiple mirrors on the far wall.
For those who prefer a more casual dining experience, this imaginative combination of the kitchen and family room should be ideal. As with all homes, this kitchen is the heart of the home. The breakfast bar is perfect for casual lunches or breakfast, and can also provide a perfect place for guests to confer with the chef while meals are being prepared.
The kitchen features the most in demand amenities, and includes a stone counter, gas range cooktop, a microwave, a built in oven, refrigerator, and dishwasher.
A reverse perspective reveals the generous floorspace that is available in this very effective entertainment space. Just to the right of the sofa is a large door to the front balcony, as seen below.
This engaging front balcony runs the length of the top floor, and includes the living and dining room, and the kitchen/family area.
There are four bedrooms in the home. Two will be shown for your consideration. The first, above, is the home's primary bedroom. Softly colored, it is large, flexible in design possibilities, and highlighted with a personal view balcony.
The adjacent primary bathroom offers so many desirable features. Included are a long dual sink counter with a full length mirror and crisp lighting, a tub with jets, a large stall shower, and a split bath design.
The second bedroom is quite pleasant, and allows an easy transition to the serenity of the outside garden area.
This serene backyard scene reveals the detailed tiered landscaping that combines multi-level plantings, greenery and surrounding trees.
The inviting wooden steps lead up to a porch with a view of the expansive scenery below.
In fact, as mentioned above, there are multiple points of views of the Bay area from this spacious residence. The kitchen, front room, dining room and living room all open onto a view balcony as well.
This handsome multi-level home in the Oakland hills is both comfortable and welcoming, and its prime location adds even more value to its already distinctive appeal.
If this is the home that you would like to make your own, please call me promptly with your questions and interest. I can be reached at (510) 517-6280. The residence is being offered for sale for $1,495,000.
