This glowing hillside home is located in the hills of Oakland's Montclair neighborhood at 7210 Sayre Drive.  Close to everything, yet seemingly remote among the surrounding trees, it offers 3 bedrooms and 1/12 bathrooms in approximately 1,924 sf of living space.  

For those who would enjoy the quiet tree side ambiance that this house provides, its location still offers opportunities both above and below its location that should please those who enjoy the outdoors.  Just above the home are the hiking, biking and walking trails of Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve and Reinhardt Regional Park.  Just below are the shopping and dining amenities offered by Montclair Village, Rockridge and Berkeley.  

This stunning two story floor to ceiling wall of windows literally invites the outside in.  The sliding glass doors provide a easy transition from the living and dining area to the adjoining outdoor porch.   The living room's very expansive floor space welcomes inspired decorative placement of furniture and soft seating,  

A reverse view of the living area reveals the richly colored wooden wall in the living room that compliments the softly colored floors and luminous outdoor light.  A distinctive, and engaging fireplace invites evening relaxation and entertaining on cooler Bay area evenings.    

The dining area is well placed, and can serve as a site for a pleasant evening meal for residents, or just as easily become a buffet site for entertaining, since its location is just steps away from the generous outside deck.  

The kitchen is most certainly one of the most effective rooms in the residence.  Dramatically updated, it features,  outstanding amenities that should please a creative home chef.  They include Silestone counters, custom cabinets, a stainless double farm sink, a dishwasher, microwave, freestanding range oven, refrigerator, and a large pantry just behind the central kitchen area.   

This impressive wooden deck virtually doubles one's living space most of the year,  and is as inviting as it is practical, providing tree filled views above and across the open canyon space adjacent to the home, as seen below.  

This serene Tahoe like ambiance is one of the reasons that so many home buyers choose to live in Montclair.  

Another perspective of the living room reveals this handsomely conceived set of stairs to the entryway and upper floor.  

There are 3 bedrooms in the house.  Two will be shown for your consideration.  Above is the spacious primary bedroom which continues the home's architectural theme of open beam peaked ceilings and generous window space.  It can easily accommodate two comfortably sized beds, dressers and soft chairs, if desired.  

The primary bathroom is highlighted by this large walk in shower with seat,  Directly opposite is a softly colored counter space with twin sinks and plentiful storage space.  

A cheerful second bedroom is well suited to a bedroom/study combination, while still retaining the charm of the open beam ceiling and the warm colors that it provides.  

If this beautiful home, or another in the area, is appealing to you, I encourage you to call me promptly with your questions and interest at (510) 517-6280.  The home is being offered for sale for $995,000.
