This very attractive home, located at 80 Florada Avenue, offers a lot of roomy comfort for a new owner.  It features 5 bedrooms and 3 baths in a comfortable 3248 sf +/- of living space.   It has a very welcoming curb appeal, and a handsome off street garage that will house two cars.  

The expansive living room is centered around a very elegant fireplace which is a classic design feature for homes of its era.  It has a graceful 30's streamline appeal, is dramatically spacious, and has a display mantle for your special collectibles.  


Sunny light flows in from the generous windows, and the amenities here, and throughout the house, include hardwood floors, wood framed doors and windows, and elegant crown molding.

A pair of dramatic doors from the living room open to reveal the graceful formal dining room.  

Desirable French windows allow mellow light, and a pleasant ambiance, into the room that will certainly  enhance the dining experience--whether it be casual or formal.  

Just steps away, a very engaging kitchen awaits the family chefs.  Its tile counters, and roomy cabinets, are just a part of the appeal.  Just beyond the main kitchen is a very charming breakfast nook.  Ideal for a pleasant sun drenched breakfast or lunch, it offers a unique alternative to the formal dining room.  

As indicated above, this room has to be one of the most engaging in terms of a winning atmosphere, with its open door and windows that allow the outside ambiance and scenery in for your enjoyment.

A very warm and welcoming family room displays many additional assets to comfortable living.  Note the view to the inviting outside patio, and the extremely generous wall to ceiling built in bookcase/display cabinets.  

Four bedrooms are shown here for your consideration and review.  The first, below, is exceedingly spacious, and has a special little sitting room immediately to the right of the picture that is enhanced below, in order to illustrate its charm.

French windows, with a view to the outside greenery, give this bedroom a pleasant, and serene ambiance.

A wide panel of windows allow a view of the Bay area, and offer city views, in this third bedroom. 

This fourth bedroom is equally handsome, and it, too, opens to the sitting room that accompanies the first bedroom above.

There is a delightful garden behind the home.  Well planned, it has established trees and plants, a lush green lawn, and a well designed brick patio area that is ideal for entertaining, or just quiet relaxation.  Shown in the bottom picture is a building which could function as art studio, office, or workshop.

As shown here, there is a partial view of the Bay, Bay Bridge and city lights, which is always a special treat offered by homes in the Oakland/Piedmont hills.  

This desirable home is being offered for sale for $2,095,000.  If you enjoy this style of home, or something similar, please call me with your questions and interests at (510) 517-6280 for further discussion.  I look forward to working with you.
