Settled in among the long established hillside trees of Oakland's Montclair neighborhood is this gracious home at 6812 Wilton Drive. Imaginatively designed to settle comfortably in this natural setting, it features expansive windows and sliding glass doors that will capture every distinctive view. It offers 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 1532 +/- sf of living space.
While the home is pleasantly restful and private, it is more than capable of providing an outstanding venue for entertaining. The vast expanse of open space seen here is perfect for hosting large parties and events where guests are able to move freely from the living, dining and kitchen area to the spacious outdoor patio.
A reverse view reveals some of the elements that make this home so distinctive. An engaging and distinctive living room fireplace provides a perfect spot around which to enjoy an evening's conversation with guests, and the softly colored wooden counter with side chairs seen here, is a perfect site from which to serve hors d'oeuvres, and talk with the host while meals are being prepared.
This view reveals the planning that had gone into creating this soothing ambiance. Softly colored hardwood floors combine with the off white color of the open beam ceiling overhead, while the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors and full length windows and clerestory windows reveal the captivating exterior scene.
This marvelous outside patio combines the best of both worlds for homeowners-a quiet retreat, yet flexible in its use. Expansive and inviting, it is settled in among sheltering trees, and overlooks multicolored gardens and the lush green lawn just beyond. A ideally placed firepit provides both charm and warmth.
Just steps away is this expanse of trees, and views of distant hills and valleys that will provide amazing experiences as the days and seasons change.
Returning inside to the heart of the home-the kitchen. This gleaming kitchen is perfectly conceived to please the most demanding of home chefs. Its multiple work surfaces gleam from the infusion of both the interior supplemental lighting and mirrors, to the exterior light from the skylights. Dual counters offer dining sites for casual meals, for those so inclined.
A full length view of the kitchen reveals its size, and the many amenities that it features. Included are stone counters, a dishwasher, a built in self cleaning oven with electric range cooktop, microwave, built in pantry, refrigerator, and wet bar. Floor to ceiling sliding glass doors can open to the exterior for a seamless access to the outside patio, providing a easy transition of food and refreshment to the patio.
Directly opposite the far kitchen counter is this comfortable family room which is perfectly placed for relaxing and media viewing.
There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms in the home. One of each will be shown for your consideration. The first, the primary bedroom, looks out over a charming garden path that offers access to the rest of the property. The theme of golden colored hardwood floors contrasting with the soft white of the beamed ceiling continues to please.
This outstanding primary bathroom has been updated, and features a tile walk-in shower and radiant heating. Steps away is a very desirable walk in closet.
If this restful location, and stunning home, is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280 with your questions and interest. The residence is being offered for sale for $1,100,000.
