This warm and welcoming hillside home, with its many exceptional amenities, is located at 4511 Lincoln Avenue in the Lincoln Highlands section of Oakland. It is large, and offers 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a generous 2540 sf of living space.
Very well located close to the shops and restaurants of Montclair and Glenview, and the numerous regional parks in the area, it is just moments from Highways 13 and 580 providing immediate access to Oakland, San Francisco, and Contra Costa County.
The living room reveals the home's design commitment to capture every bit of the warm and glowing light that surrounds the home during the day, and the lights and beauty of the cities below at night.
The large sliding glass door, and the floor to ceiling windows that wrap around the living room and dining room spaces, are all in place to meet that very objective.
A handsome fireplace anchors the living room, and is topped with a built in multi unit bookcase that awaits a display of favorite books, collectibles, and favorite pieces of art.
The opposite side of the living room features a wide sliding glass door that allows direct access to the home's outside view porch. This access is immediately inviting when entertaining, having barbecues, or just relaxing.
Due to its outstanding hillside location, the view from the deck is stunning. Included in this panorama is all of Oakland, San Francisco, San Francisco Bay, both bridges, and Marin.
The home has a wrap around deck, the additional portion of which will be seen below.
Just steps from the living room is this expansive dining room that easily accommodates a large dining table and eight chairs, and side cocktail table. Its captivating chandelier adds yet more appeal to the already engaging ambiance.
Pleasant dining, and ease of food service, is enhanced with the close proximity of the home's gleaming kitchen space. The space has been updated with new appliances and flooring throughout, and includes a dishwasher, built in double oven, electric range/cooktop, and pantry.
Just behind the sink and long counter space is this delightful eat in kitchen niche, that is perfect for leisurely luncheons, simple meals, or a quiet moment with a good book.
The upper floor contains the primary suite and two additional bedrooms. Seen here is the especially appealing primary bedroom. It easily accommodates a wide and spacious bed, a pair of side tables, a dresser, and very roomy sofa.
A private mini balcony and a sliding glass door allows one to enjoy in the serenity of the outside trees.
A gleaming en suite bathroom, immediately adjacent to the primary bedroom, is highlighted with large and comfortable tub, and a sink with a wide counter and plentiful storage below.
A second upstairs bedroom is just steps away from the primary suite, and it, too, is comfortably sized, and its two picture windows capture views of the outdoor foliage.
Also available is this bonus space that is currently being used as an office, but could easily become an arts or music room, if desired.
The lower level of the home, seen here, is truly imaginative, and certainly an ideal place for parties, entertaining, and special events.
A built in bar at the far end of the room, and a corner side table with a view, occupy just a small part of the rest of space available that is currently being occupied by a lengthy sofa and multiple side tables.
A large fireplace will provide warmth and cheer, and the overhead beams add yet more drama to the effect.
The home's representative says that this space could easily be converted into an in law unit if desired.
There are yet more features available on the lower level that add a great deal to the home's value and appeal. Here, a room has been converted into a mini gym for those who want to stay fit without leaving home.
Close by is this marvelous sauna and companion shower that adds yet more value to those who will use and appreciate their presence.
With yet more space available, this large room is available for a wide variety of uses and applications.
As mentioned above, the home has a wrap around deck, and as such offers multiple and varied views. The deck here continues around to the left.
