Hiller Highlands homes have always been known for offering dramatic Bay area views, and this townhouse at 29 Binnacle Hill is no exception. The view from the home provides a panorama stretching from San Francisco to Marin, and includes both the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge.
This home is stunning. Natural light flows in from windows at every level in this living room and adjacent dining room. A large Bay area view balcony accessed directly through sliding glass doors behind the sofa, combines with a large vertical shaft of light next to the fireplace, and the window and mirrored wall of dining room, to invite sunlight in from every angle.
Subdued golden colors from the hardwood floors, overhead open beam ceiling, and the fireplace, contrast perfectly from the crisply colored white walls and the overhead beams. The residence offers 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, in approximately 1634 sf of living space.
The simple lines of the central fireplace, combined with the dramatic overhead ceiling, provide an irresistible design potential which could only be enhanced and complimented by the sweeping city views.
A reverse perspective reveals the compelling combination of the living room and stepped up dining room.
The warm and inviting dining room is perfectly placed to serve multiple purposes. It is comfortably sized to be able to accommodate a spacious dining table and chairs, and serve as a gracious formal dining setting for multiple guests, but its location just off the kitchen makes it an deal spot for a casual luncheon or buffet site.
There will be many times when a quick breakfast or simple lunch is desired, and this need is easily met by the eat in kitchen format seen here to the right. Within the kitchen area, but not underfoot, this space is ideal.
This gleaming kitchen is just off both the dining room and the outdoor patio area, making food service a breeze. Two large windows allow the chef a pleasant view of the yard and outside greenery. Amenities include multi-level storage space, a dishwasher, garbage disposal, a microwave and a range/oven.
There are two bedrooms in the residence. Both are en suite. The first, seen here, has its own rooftop Bay view, a cozy corner seating area beneath the window, and plentiful floor space for a very comfortably sized bed.
Immediately adjacent is this sparkling bathroom with stall shower and two double sinks with generous sink space above, and storage space below.
The second bedroom has three large windows that offer views of the generous garden and hillside trees. The room carries on the dramatic open beam ceiling theme that seen in the living and dining room.
This bathroom is just off the second bedroom, and has a shower/tub combination, and large sink with a spacious mirror.
The very expansive patio area furnishes numerous relaxation and entertainment opportunities for both residents and guests, in addition to providing a pleasant solitude for a quiet retreat.
This townhouse is extremely well located, The favorite dining and shopping areas of Rockridge and Montclair are just moments away, as are public hiking and biking trails, and camping venues. The adjacent Caldecott Tunnel provides efficient transit to Orinda, Lafayette, and all that Contra Costa County has to offer.
