This stunning great room is the epitome of what an imaginative design concept can create. Located high in the hills above Oakland at 75 Chadbourne Way, it was architecturally reconceived to capture the glowing incoming light and panoramic views in a way that combines seamlessly with the expansive interior floorspace and 18 foot ceilings.
It offers 5 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms in 2108+/- sf of living space.
The room is awash in light-from the dramatic floor to ceiling windows and doors that look out onto the city below, to the additional sets of windows along each side wall. The white, high peaked ceilings provide supplemental lighting as the sun sets.
On cooler Bay area evenings, when indoor entertaining is chosen, the convivial space around the brick fireplace is a logical gathering place. Located just steps from the dining table and kitchen, food service can be as formal or casual as needs require.
This compelling wall of glass is an essential element of the spirit of this residence. Its primary purpose is to provide shelter from the elements, while furnishing access to the magnificent sky deck just beyond.
Stepping to the outside sky deck, one can appreciate both the drama and appeal of this stunning site. This expansive deck is anchored by a hot tub that is surrounded by various seating and viewing settings, making this an outstanding choice for both entertaining and relaxing.
A wider view to the south reveals the expanse of the scene below, and the space available on the deck.
A northerly view highlights the lush gardens and greenery surrounding, and enhancing, the beauty that is already present.
This kitchen, as with many homes, is most certainly the heart of this home. Centrally located, easily accessed, and generous in size, it provides beautiful custom cabinetry, well thought out work space, and a pantry.
Top quality amenities include a stone counter, a dishwasher, double oven, range, microwave, refrigerator, and built in wine refrigerator. The impressive breakfast bar easily doubles as an additional work space, luncheon site, or serving site for refreshments and food when entertaining.
A large dining room to the right of the kitchen is ideal for formal meals or buffets, when the occasion requires.
There are five bedrooms in the home. Three will be shown for your consideration. The first, above, is en suite, and large enough for a spacious bed. It is enhanced with sliding glass windows that open to views of softly colored trees just outside.
This second bedroom is ideally placed to treasure the expansive views that are available through all of its many windows.
One of the bedrooms has been converted into a very handsome den/office. With a floor to ceiling built in bookcase, room for a desk, comfortable furniture, and worktable, it is an excellent use of the space.
And. when all is considered, there is always the view that elevates this home over so many others with its inherent quality and design.
If this home is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly. I can be reached at (510) 517-6280. The residence is being offered for sale for $1,149,000.
