This glowing hillside house, located at 1825 Arrowhead Drive has been impressively upgraded throughout, and is a warm and welcoming home for both residents and guests. Located in the Oakland hills above Montclair Village, it is just moments from Huckleberry Regional Preserve, and other popular parks and trails nearby. It offers 3 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms, in approximately 2000 sf of living space.
As can be seen by three select views of the living room, dining room and kitchen, this home is ideal for entertaining. This spacious living room is perfect for guests. The desirable central fireplace is a pleasant spot around which to gather on chilly evenings, and the stellar adjacent kitchen can provide a special selection of tasty appetizers before a formal meal. Sparkling outdoor light enters from a pair of impressive skylights, and additionally through the expansive set of windows found along the far right wall. Yet more sunlight is seen through the large sliding glass doors that lead to the deck.
Just to the right of the kitchen is this inviting dining area that is equally suited to a casual breakfast or a formal evening meal. It would be a perfect spot for a luncheon buffet, where guests could serve themselves and step outside to the pleasant upstairs deck.
Upon viewing the kitchen space, it soon becomes obvious that a great deal of effort has been invested in making this space as warm and welcoming as possible. The very expansive counter space seen here, provides a cozy spot for a quick snack or breakfast seating, and still offer plentiful food preparation workspace.
This sparkling kitchen has been impressively upgraded to furnish the chef with amenities that will make preparation of food a delight. As seen here, conveniences include the spacious island space to the left, a stone counter, a microwave, a built in range/oven, a dishwasher and refrigerator. The white subway tile over the oven gleams due to the presence of the recessed lighting and supplemental hanging lighting fixtures.
Just outside the kitchen and the dining area is this delightful upstairs deck that furnishes a relaxing spot for enjoying a morning coffee and a book, while being surrounded by welcoming trees, and a soothing view.
There are two bedrooms on the street level of the residence. Each is spacious in size, offering a flexibility in the placement of he bed, chests, dressers, or soft chairs as desired. Each is also complimented by a serious upgrading of nearby bathrooms as seen below.
This stunning bathroom reveals an impressively sized walk in tile shower, creative lighting fixtures, and a large dual sink combination that is matched with a full length mirror along its length. The simple black, white and grey colors add to the overall dramatic effect.
Nearby, this sunny second bedroom awaits its new decor. The pair of large picture windows reveal the outside trees and greenery that surround the home, and the warmly golden color of the hardwood floors furnishes yet more tranquility to an already pleasant space.
Close by is a second upstairs bathroom that has also been impressively upgraded, and carries on the grey, black and white theme of the first bathroom. The large stall shower features handsomely installed white tile throughout.
Stepping down to the second level, one discovers this very expansive family room. It features a sliding glass door that opens to the second outside deck of the home that overlooks the gardens below. Given its size, the use and floor plan of this room is as flexible as one's imagination will allow. Easily divided into various areas, it can become a media room, a office, a library, and arts and crafts room--or all or none of them.
Just steps away is this delightful third bedroom that provides immediate access to the spacious outdoor deck space. What a treat to be able to enjoy this unique amenity on a pleasant evening, and then be able to just close it off for complete privacy.
The lower level deck is sizeable and welcoming, and larger than the deck above. It is a perfectly placed spot for outside entertaining. Both decks are constructed of the richly colored red cedar lumber seen here.
Below the two decks, and behind the home is this expansive and serene backyard space surrounded by well established trees and greenery.
This impressive overhead view of the home affords a complete view of the placement of the home on the hillside and in the immediate neighborhood.
The front entrance to the home reveals the stairs down to the entry, and, to the left, a desirable detached garage with space for two cars.
If this welcoming home, or another, has caught your interest, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280 regarding it. Close to everything from schools to shopping to transportation, it is a unique and desirable home. It is being offered for sale for $1,345,000.
