This stunning hillside home sits high in the Oakland hills, and represents a perfect combination of a Tahoe like retreat, and Bay area living.  

Located at 6942 Chambers Drive in Montclair, it offers 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in a comfortable 2032 sq. ft. of living space. 

The living room is stunning.  The home's expansive interior space easily accommodates an impressive floor to ceiling brick fireplace which is ideal for use on evening get togethers with friends, or on cooler East Bay mornings perhaps with a good book and cup of coffee.  

An overhead panoply of off white cross beams combines beautifully with the wooden ceiling panels to create a dramatic overhead visual experience.   

The most compelling feature here has to be the far wall of floor to ceiling windows and door that manage to capture the stunning forest and city views that are seen just outside the home on its western side. 

The entire open floor plan is designed for enjoyment of this view, and for moving freely from one space to another while relaxing on a lazy afternoon, enjoying a sunset, or entertaining guests with a party or special event .

A perfectly sized dining area, just off the living room, is equally suitable for a formal dining service, or for a generous buffet service for guests at a sunny afternoon party.  

Once again, the open floor plan creates this engaging  mix of food and entertainment opportunities.  This effective use of space is provided by a kitchen island which serves multiple purposes here.  It provides a serving counter for food and beverages, a storage space for china and silver, and as a divider between both rooms.  

Just steps away from anywhere in the living and dining rooms is this marvelous exterior porch that runs the entire width of the home's western glass wall.  

The view from the porch captures a tranquility that is provided by a surrounding growth of tall and well established trees.   Just beyond is a glimpse of San Francisco Bay, and the Bay area cities below.  

Returning inside, one discovers this inviting chef's kitchen that has been recently updated to include new Bosch appliances, stone counters, storage drawers at every level, and a dishwasher, gas range, and refrigerator.  

Steps away, on the second level, is the home's primary bedroom with its own view windows, a wall of closet space, and generous floor space.  

Immediately adjacent it the recently updated primary bathroom that is large, bright, and efficient.  It offers Grohe fixtures, and a very wide dual sink and mirror combination, with storage space below.  

Another bedroom, located on the ground floor, is especially appealing in that is is just off the home's private front deck space, and a sliding glass door allows easy transition from one site to another.  

Just down the steps from the front entrance to the home, is this very private, and very engaging, front porch, with supplemental lighting, that is perfect for both daytime and evening enjoyment.  

Its very size invites many, many permutations for placing chairs, sofas, seating and tables-large and small.  It can handle a large party easily when desired, or just be a personal retreat any time of day.  

Also on the lower floor is this outstanding family room that is being used for just few activities at the present.  If not needed as a family room, however, it could easily be utilized as an office/study, library, arts and crafts room, music or playroom.

It, too, carries on the design theme of floor to ceiling glass windows and door that opens to this outside view deck.  

Just the other side of the glass doors is this second home wide view deck that is equally suited to providing pleasant afternoons with splendid views just beyond and below.  

If you would like to make this sky high home yours, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  It is offered for sale for $1,495,000.
