One of the advantages of living in the East Bay hills is the availability of sweeping views that reveal the beauty of the Tahoe like forest below.  Such is the case with this marvelous hillside home that is for sale at 2015 Arrowhead Drive in Montclair.  

It offers 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a very generous 3099 sf of living space.  

To capture these views, homes like this have been built with the goal of capturing every bit of this exterior beauty that the extensive floor to ceiling windows and doors will allow.  Coupled with high, gently peaked, open beam ceilings, the space is a delight to experience.  

This open living space is perfect for daily living, and is especially effective for entertaining and relaxing with friends.  The easy flexibility of strolling from indoors to outdoors for parties and barbeques is especially valued here.  

Just outside the living room is this exceptionally spacious balcony, which, in essence, becomes another very desirable living space much of the year. 

For those that enjoy the serenity of hillside living among peaceful trees, long established plants, hillside trails and the song of birds every morning, this is a definitely a  home to consider. 

A dining table is perfectly placed next to the kitchen to be available for use for a formal evening meal, or as a perfect serving platform for an afternoon buffet or birthday party.  

Steps away is the kitchen that is enhanced with this very efficient stone counter that is offers so many possibilities for its use.  It is ideal as a food preparation space, a sideboard when serving food, or a cocktail table.  

Directly below are various sizes and shapes of storage spaces that are ideal for storing the many service pieces that you might need to accomplish any of the tasks above.  

This gleaming kitchen is an efficient and well planned preparation space that has been impressively updated, and includes a dishwasher, a freestanding gas range and oven, and refrigerator.  

There are four bedrooms in the home.  Three will be shown for your consideration.  The first, seen here, continues the home's design theme of richly colored hardwood floors, off white colored walls, and an overhead open beam ceiling.  

It is especially pleasing because it includes a full sized sliding glass door that opens onto the porch, inviting in the outside beauty.  

A reverse perspective illustrates its size, and a niche for a desk, chest of drawers or makeup table.  It is also an en suite bedroom with an adjacent bathroom that is seen below.  

This efficient and attractive bathroom provides dual sinks with generous storage below, a shower, toilet and window.  

A pleasant second bedroom can easily contain a large couch and a long sofa with two footstools, with room left over for more.  This represents the use of one of the home's bedrooms in a different format when all of the four bedrooms are not needed for sleeping.  

Of the three to be shown, this bedroom is the largest, and is can easily be labelled the primary bedroom.  It comfortably accommodates a huge bed, a side chair, large dresser and two nightstands.

An outside view deck reveals and captures the forest below.   

This primary bathroom is carefully color coordinated to have the beige and white tile harmonize with soft white of the exceptional jetted tub and standing basin. 

Once again, a room wide wall of window adds yet more light to the already harmonious ambiance.

A reverse view reveals the splendid walk in and color coordinated shower, toilet, and sink.  

There is yet another living space on the lower floor that is instantly appealing, and offers so many special living and entertainment opportunities.  

This family room, with a built in bar, flexible use of floorspace, and immediate access to the home's lower view deck,  has been carefully color coordinated with perfectly chosen colors on both the floor and walls.  

Multiple seating areas and sites for a variety of tables and chairs, and a warm and welcoming fireplace at the far wall of the room creates a very congenial space.  

The lower deck of this home is as close to a resort retreat as one could create.  There is a covered deck above for shade from the sun, a wide expanse for special events, parties, and a variety of furniture combinations that will easily make the best use of the space.  

If you would like to enjoy the serenity of this special retreat, please call me with your questions and interest at (510) 517-6280.  The home is being offered for sale for $1,299,000.
