High in the Oakland Hills is this exceptional, and beautifully designed home that offers sweeping views of the entire SF Bay area directly below. 

Located in the desirable Piedmont Pines neighborhood of Oakland at 5747 Scarborough Drive, it offers 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with 2232 sf of living space.

Both levels of the entire western facing frontage of the home have been conceived in such a way that captures this unobstructed sweep of the SF Bay area below-from the Marin Hills to San Francisco, San Francisco Bay, both the Oakland Bay Bridge, The Golden Gate Bridge, and Oakland. 

These marvelous floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that are seen along the entire front of the home offer easy passage inside and out, and the wide wooden deck provides wonderful opportunities for soothing relaxation and entertaining.  

This expansive, unobstructed view is available every day of the year, and it changes as the seasons change, creating a unique and special experience daily.  

The living room of the house is especially comfortable.  Its softly colored off white walls combine beautifully with the distinctive colors of the dramatic overhead wooden beam ceiling and the hardwood floors.  

As a result, the space is always enhanced with soft sunlight that is captured daily through the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors.  

Another view reveals an inset in the living room that is perfect for a pair of side chairs, and one that is topped by a beautifully designed entryway railing that is certainly an inspired centerpiece to the room.  

A wider perspective reveals the especially well designed placement of all the many elements of the room that provide gracious and relaxed living.  

A perfect flow of movement from the living room to the view deck is created by the presence of the floor to ceiling sliding glass door that opens out onto the deck, and a well placed kitchen island stands ready to provide casual dining service-whether breakfast or lunch, or to act as a serving surface for parties.  

A formal dining space is just to the right for evening meals or luncheons, and a fully renovated kitchen stands ready for any of these many events.

The dining space can easily seat at least six guests, and there is storage space to the right, and into the kitchen, for favorite serving china and glassware.  

This gleaming kitchen can serve so many needs for the home chef.  A large preparation surface is available with the presence of this  outstanding central island that is seen above.

As indicated earlier, this kitchen has been fully renovated. 

Amenities include an induction cooktop, a double drawer dishwasher, a butler's pantry and all stainless steel appliances.  

A dramatic overhead skylight invites in the light and the views of the surrounding greenery.  

There are four bedrooms in the residence.  Three are on the main floor, and will be shown here.  

The first, seen here, is warm and welcoming, and boasts a large sliding mirror fronted closet door, and space for a comfortably sized bed and adjacent personal desk.

A reverse angle highlights the large view windows, and the placement available for both nightstands and desk, the latter of which could also be a small chest of drawers, if preferred.  

 A second nearby bedroom continues the theme from the first bedroom of mirrored glass closet doors, space for a chest of drawers or side table, and the uniquely attractive overhead open beam ceilings.  

Worth noting in both views here and above, is the floor to ceiling French doors that open onto the wide view deck that was shown in the earlier views .  

The third bedroom is equally pleasant, and it, too, has doors that open directly onto the outside deck, and all the panorama below.  

Of the two bathrooms on the main floor, this gleaming, and perfectly color coordinated primary bathroom is truly impressive.  Crisp white colors contrast perfectly with the black and white of the bathtub, tiles, and surrounding wall trim.  

It certainly reflects the care and consideration that has been invested into its creation.  

A set of stairs takes one down to the home's lower level that continues the theme an expansive living space that awaits one's creative hand. 

Here, a family room has been developed, and a wall of windows to the left once again reveals the beauty of the cities below.

Seen directly outside is a second lower viewing deck that is available for one's use and enjoyment, and compliments the deck space above it.   

To the right is the laundry room, and nearby is the home's fourth bedroom and bathroom.

WORTH NOTING-There is an elevator that services all levels of the house.

If you can envision yourself seated on this stunning porch enjoying all that the city and the Bay area has to offer, please call me promptly regarding it at (510) 517-6280 to learn even more about it, and what it has to offer.   It is being sold for $1,295,000.
