One of the advantages of living in the Oakland hills is that there are so many dramatic vista views available.  Here, with this home, you are offered a truly amazing panoramic view of Mt. Diablo and Chabot Regional Park, and the attendant peaceful ambiance that these locations offer.  Imagine being able to take advantage of this sweeping deck space every day, whether in quiet relaxation and enjoyment, or entertaining friends.  

This home is located at 5149 Saddle Brook Drive in the Parkridge Estates neighborhood of Oakland.  It has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, and has approximately 1608 sf of living space.  

Without even going inside the home, in addition to the deck and its views,  there is still another amazing plus to add to the appeal. Directly below the deck is a lower garden patio terrace, complete with a king sized swimming pool.


The good news is that you will find a continuation of this vacation like ambiance, and the captivating views, inside this home once you open the front door.  The beautiful arched ceilings, and indoor open space here, match the dramatic views outside.  Additionally, it is pleasing to note that the home has been extensively remodeled, and offers hardwood floors throughout.  

The dining room area is extremely flexible.  Located just off the kitchen, it is ideal for a quiet evening's formal entertaining, or the large sliding glass doors can be opened onto the deck for a more casual serving format.   

The bright and welcoming kitchen has been upgraded, and has generous stone counter space for whatever the imaginative chef may need.


Just off the kitchen is a very spacious, and inviting, family room, complete with a brick fireplace.

The home has three bedrooms.  Two are shown here for your review.  Note the continuation of the hardwood floors throughout, and the warm atmosphere created by the color and lighting chosen for each.

Also upgraded, and extremely attractive in style and design, are the two bathrooms in the home.

This home may be as close to vacation style living as you can get in such an urban area as Oakland.  Many of the hillside plants and trees just outside your deck will change with the season, and will present a wonderful daily panorama.

Because this home so much appeal, I encourage you to contact me quite promptly regarding it at (510)517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $945,000.
