This glowing living room, with its floor to ceiling windows and doors, provides a sweeping 24 hour panorama of the San Francisco Bay area below, and is immediately captivating.  Located in the Montclair hills of Oakland at 6801 Armour Drive, it offers 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 1929 +/- sf of living space.  

A gracious living room is anchored by darker colored fireplace that contrasts perfectly with the softly colored off white walls, and the golden color from the open beamed ceiling overhead.  

Two large doors open at the left of the living room to invite one outside to experience the dramatic panoramic view from the extraordinary deck space pictured below.   

This substantial outdoor deck space, with its large sheltering patio cover, is immediately engaging for both guests and residents.  Flexible in its conception, the seating and entertaining space is generous, and the ambiance is outstanding.  

Directly below, is this splendid view of the San Francisco Bay area that includes Oakland, San Francisco, South San Francisco Bay.  

Moving slightly northwards, the Bay Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge, central San Francisco Bay, and Marin are revealed.  This view of the outstanding expanse is affected, and changing in color and light, as the sun rises and sets, and the seasons change. 

Just to the left side of the living room upon entering, is this unique space that is ideal for seating and relaxing.  The space could easily be utilized as an office or a small library if desired, and is enhanced by the large picture window with views to the charming outside balcony.  

Just adjacent to the living room is this distinctive dining area that can comfortably accommodate this large dining table and at least 6 chairs.  A cabinet placed to the right could easily double as a small buffet server, and storage for favorite china or glassware.  

The table is just steps from the entrance to the view porch.  Guests can be served a buffet lunch, and retire outside, or have an evening meal and later wander out to watch the sunset or a sky full of stars.  

A home of this quality will have a splendid kitchen, and this one does not disappoint.  It has been thoughtfully updated to create a smart and efficient workspace. 

Well placed quartz countertops provide generous counterspace, and there are wooden cabinets and a glass display cabinet to easily accommodate choice cooking and serving pieces along with china and cooking utensils.  

A desirable bay window over the sink provides a  view of the hillside, and  updated amenities include a dishwasher, a gas range cooktop, a microwave, a refrigerator and a built in range oven.  

There are three bedrooms in the home.  Two will be shown for your consideration.  The first, seen above, is the residence's primary bedroom, and it is exceptional.  Expansive in size, it has a stunning floor to ceiling view of the Bay area, and more than ample floorspace for a large bed, soft side chairs and dresser.  

It just takes moments to convert the bedroom into this vacation style living space with a view that is envied world wide.  The access to the porch is created by the pulling aside of the highly desirable La Cantina folding glass doors.  

The primary bathroom is engaging with its combination of bathtub and shower that is topped by the gentle light of a soothing skylight.  

The second bedroom to be considered is this cleverly designed space that has created room for two beds and a dresser while still offering comfortable space towards the outside view deck.  It is en suite, with the bathroom close by.  

Just steps outside the second bedroom above is this handsome covered porch that provides a large and inviting hot tub.  What a treat to be able to enjoy this outstanding ambiance day or night.  

A view of the front of the house reveals the two car garage for off street parking, a front fence for privacy, and, of course, the scenes of the Bay area below.  

If this outstanding hillside home is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510)517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,348,000.
