In the hills of Oakland, between Montclair and Piedmont is this very special home that is perfectly adapted to both gracious living, and stellar entertaining.  Located at 5625 Estates Drive, it offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 2091 sf of floorspace.  

Anchored by this gleaming updated kitchen, the home is immediately welcoming and relaxing.  A very practical, and spacious central island provides both work space and serving space, and features lower level storage space, as well.  

The crisp whiteness of the surrounding overhead glass front cabinets combines beautifully with the white of the tiles over the stove, and the light from the generous overhead lighting.  This is most certainly an efficient, and an very pleasant, working space for the home chef.  

Worthy of note-updated amenities include a gas range/cooktop, dishwasher and refrigerator, 

An expansive dining room is steps away from the kitchen, and is more than suitable in size for a large dinner party, special holiday event, or formal luncheon.  Three large picture windows offer pleasant views of the surrounding green of the trees.  

A slightly different perspective of the room reveals the floor to ceiling cabinet space located discreetly behind a centrally placed door.    Multiple shelving allows varied sized spaces for plates, glassware, silverware, and favorite serving pieces.  

The sliding glass door at the far end opens to the exceptional patio seen below.  

This outdoor patio is tucked in among the tall, well established, overhead landscaping.  It is private, and perfect for outdoor relaxation and recreation.    

Returning inside, one can also choose to enjoy the living room space seen here.  Just off the kitchen shown above, it takes just a few steps to join the chef and guests as dinner is being prepared.    

A large handsome fireplace is located to the far side left, and the wall of picture windows literally bring the "outside In", featuring a view of well established gardens.  

It is hard to imagine  home of this quality without the presence of a large family room-complete with fireplace.  Located on the lower level, it follows the same pleasing design concept seen throughout the home--subtly colored off white walls, simple trim, and richly colored hardwood flooring.  

There are three comfortably sized bedrooms in the house.  The first, seen here, is enhanced with this tall, and cleverly built in floor to ceiling closet with multiple shelves for storage.  

The second bedroom easily accommodates a good sized bed, and has an even larger personal closet.

Just off the larger bedroom seen below, is this pleasant black and white toned bathroom with a large walk in shower, sink, counter, and generous mirror.

The third and final bedroom is en suite, as seen here, and has a far wall of wide view windows to add to its appeal.  

Moving to the exterior of the home, one discovers this handsome hillside home with a cheerful multi-colored front gardens, and off street parking with a large two car garage.  

This outstanding hillside retreat is just moments from the shops and restaurants of Montclair, Rockridge, and Piedmont Avenue.  Highways 13, 24 and 580 are close by to provide efficient access to Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco and Contra Costa County.   

If this home is of interest to you, please call me promptly at (510) 517-6280 with your questions regarding it.  The residence is being offered for sale for $1,495,000.
