This outstanding architectural gem is located in the Joaquin Miller neighborhood of Oakland's Montclair district at 2 Woodside Glen Court.  It offers 4 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms in a spacious 2408 sf of living space.  

It has been dramatically fine tuned to ensure a delightful and gracious living experience for its new residents.  

Ideally situated, it is just moments from nearby schools, parks, hiking trails, and the many shops and restaurants of Montclair Village.  Commuting is a breeze with the availability downhill of both Highways 13 and 580.  

There is unquestionably a striking impact that one feels when entering this living room that is created by 14 ft. tall ceilings, and the wall of windows and doors to the far left that draw in the beauty of the adjacent patio.  

A exceptional fireplace anchors the far right wall, and its soft beige and black coloring compliments the off white walls and richly colored hardwood floors.  

It would be difficult to create a more welcoming and effective living space for both friends and residents that is so well suited both to daily living, and gracious entertaining. 

The ease by which all can move freely from indoors to outdoors to the inviting patio, is impressive.  

There are numerous venues in the house for both quiet dining and hosting guests for special events.  Just to the right, off the home's main entrance, is this tranquil dining room.

A reverse perspective reveals the sunlit daytime ambiance that is replaced with a warm glow in the evening from the distinctive overhead chandelier. 

A more casual dining area is seen here with the presence of an eat in kitchen table and chairs that is ideal for a pleasant luncheon or an afternoon cup of coffee and a good book.  

This is supplemented by a generous counter space with two side chairs that is suitable for a quick breakfast or lunch when time is short.  

Both these spaces, and the entire kitchen seen above, have access to the exterior patio through a French door to the right.  

A reverse aspect reveals the size of the kitchen, its proximity to the dining room, its expanse of amenities, its floor to ceiling storage spaces, cabinets, and stone counter space that should please the most exacting of home chefs.   

Appliances include a dishwasher, a double oven, a microwave, a gas range/cooktop, and refrigerator.  

There are four bedrooms in the home, and the first, seen here on the main floor, is currently being used as a home office.  Once again, the soft outside light is captured by the sets of windows to the left.  A large closet space is seen on the right wall.  

This extraordinary primary bedroom is also located on the main floor, and is immediately appealing.  An expansive bed fits easily at center stage here, and there is more than ample room to create a very personal and imaginative living space.  

Just steps away from the center of the room is a door that is paired with two sets of windows that opens to soothing outdoor patio space.  

This serene outdoor living space is surrounded with a variety of well established garden floral plantings, and is topped with a gazebo style covering.  

The primary bathroom is large, marvelously updated, and continues the softly colored beige and off white coloring that is the theme of the home.  

A spacious and inviting tub anchors the far wall, with a companion glass door shower to its left.  

The wide washstand provides ideal storage space.  Directly above, are a pair of wash basins that are topped with matching twin mirrors, and light fixtures.

The third and fourth bedrooms, seen here, and below, are on the second floor, and each stands on its own as a pleasant, comfortably sized living space with its own en suite bathroom 

The additional second floor bedroom can easily accommodate a pair of twin beds with room remaining for a pair of soft chairs, desk, or side table, if desired. 

This private and inviting rear patio is equally effective as a quiet afternoon's retreat, or as an engaging entertainment site for special events, barbeques, or luncheons.  

If this extraordinary home is of interest to you, please call me with your questions regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,468,000.
