This striking hillside view home located at 111 Alta Avenue in Piedmont, is imaginative in its floorplan, perfect in its conception, and is ideally suited both as a serene hillside retreat, and as a center for entertaining friends and hosting special events.  

It offers 3 bedrooms, and 2 1/2 bathrooms in a generous 2235 sf +/-of living space.  Perfectly located in upper Piedmont, it is just moments from central Piedmont, Montclair, and Rockridge shopping and dining.  

Every element is the home is oriented towards gracious living.  A large  fireplace is centered between two floor to ceiling built in bookcases that invite displays of favorite books, artwork, and cherished collectibles.  

Floor to ceiling glass doors and windows, and a very flexible floorplan, provide a variety of creative opportunities for the use of this unique space.  

A large sliding glass door opens from the living room, seen above, to this expansive sunlit porch that offers ample room for friends, residents and guests to enjoy the panorama below.  

This space is particularly ideal for those who enjoy entertaining, and sharing this beauty with friends, while providing a captivating experience for all.  

One of the most compelling features of living in the Oakland/Piedmont hills is the daily experience of being able to enjoy this world famous  vista from sunrise to sunset, and through the night, every single day. 

The view includes all of San Francisco Bay, San Francisco, the Bay Bridge, The Golden Gate Bridge, and all of downtown Oakland.    

Just steps away, and through an additional sliding glass door that allows easy passage to the deck, is this large dining room that easily  accommodates many separate hospitality functions.

It can serve as a formal dining room with more than generous space for a long  table and multiple chairs, or as site for a luncheon buffet table for a special party, or just as a casual spot to relax and enjoy the never-ending outside beauty. 

One of the most distinctive features of the house is this atrium located at the front of the home that combines indoor and outdoor living with the soft sounds of a nearby gently flowing fountain.  

This home shows its Mid Century Modern influences with the inclusion of this atrium space. As is characterized by that concept, all rooms open onto each other, and are each visible one to the other via floor to ceiling windows and doors, thus creating an inner harmony throughout.  

The kitchen has been handsomely updated, and includes all of the amenities that should please the home chef.  It is anchored by a very effective center island that doubles as an eat in counter for simple breakfasts or lunches, and also as a work space.  

It gleams due the overhead supplemental lighting, and three large picture windows add an appealing and luminous natural light.  

The updated appliances include an oversized gas range/cooktop, refrigerator, and dishwasher.  

A different perspective reveals the generous solid surface counter space that is combined with the innovative placement of drawers, shelving, and storage space for favorite cooking and serving pieces.  

There are three bedrooms in the home.  The first, the primary bedroom seen above, is warm and relaxing, and provides three view windows that open to the outside from its second floor location. 

Just steps away, this splendid updated primary bathroom includes an inviting tub, generous storage, and a glass enclosed shower.  

A desirable walk in closet is an additional asset in the primary bedroom.  This type of closet is always in demand, and this one is particularly well thought out to include a variety of storage and clothes hanging options.  

The additional second floor bedroom is seen here, is comfortably sized, and also features a wide set of view windows.  The en suite bathroom is just off to the front left.  

This cheerful en suite bathroom pairs with the bedroom above.  

Returning to the first floor, one discovers this unique flex space that is accompanied with a half bath.  It could easily be adapted to a bedroom, an office space, den, or perhaps a music room.  

Sweeping views like this, when combined with the many qualities that make Piedmont unique, make this home a true asset-both now and in the future.
