This stunning home has been designed to capture the compelling natural beauty of the surrounding trees, hillsides, and the panorama of the cities below.  Every sunset, sunrise, and change of seasons is fully available to its residents.  

Located in the Piedmont Pines neighborhood of Oakland, at 5979 Westover Drive.  It offers 4 bedrooms and 2/12 baths is a generous 2358 sf of living space. 

It is just moments from pleasant Montclair Village.  Above, are the many hiking and biking trails of the hillside parks and reserves, and below is efficient freeway access to Oakland, Berkeley and Contra Costa County.  

This unobstructed view to the cities and rolling hills below from the home's treetop location, reveals the perfect combination of serenity, and the close proximity to the city below, and all it that it has to offer.  

This view of the adjacent dining area here and above, illustrates the expanse of windows and the sliding door space available for enjoying the peace offered by the surrounding, long standing trees and greenery around the home.  

Just outside of the dining area, is this spacious view deck that is equally perfect for entertaining and special events. as it is for a soothing Sunday morning retreat.  

The Tahoe like atmosphere often seen in the Oakland hills is especially evident here with dramatic effect provided by the lush, and long term growth trees and greenery, highlighted with just a taste of the Bay views below.  

The creative conception of this home's outstanding kitchen is immediately evident.  As conceived, the home chef is as equally capable of serving a quick and simple breakfast at either the counter space or adjacent side table, as easily as he/she can prepare for a large party, special event or afternoon luncheon.   

The gleaming overhead lighting reflects softly off the crisp white colors of the large expanse of desirable storage cabinets and drawers.  Polished stainless steel appliances include a dishwasher, gas range, microwave, built in oven, and refrigerator.

In summary, the stone counter preparation space and expansive storage space combine with the the beauty of the stainless steel appliances to create a true working kitchen.  

There are four bedrooms on the second floor. Three will be shown for your consideration.  The first, seen above is this outstanding primary bedroom.  It is large, and its very generous floorspace, light filled ambiance, and adjacent en suite bathroom, create a very inviting living space.  

The primary bathroom has been updated,  and the wide mirror above the spacious sink reflects one's own personal view of the Bay below.

A second bedroom has a three large windows with treetop scenery.  

A third of the four bedrooms is more than effective as a bedroom, but if four bedrooms are not needed, it could easily assume another role as an office, study, music room or arts and crafts retreat.  

A view of the house from above illustrates how comfortably it is settled in among the Montclair hillside, and highlights the multiple windows, doors and deck space that capture the surrounding beauty.  

If this is the home that you would like to make your own, please call me with your questions and interest at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,549,000.
