This glowing home located at 6466 Westover Drive in the Montclair neighborhood of Oakland, combines the sophistication of contemporary architecture with the soothing hillside feel that is reminiscent of Tahoe living.   It is three stories high, offers 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms in approximately 2725 sf of living space.  It has been designed with the goal of providing an easy transition from the indoors to the outdoors when desired.  

Situated in the hills above Oakland between Shepherd Canyon and Skyline Boulevard, it is sheltered among a hillside of trees, and yet is just moments from the pleasant shops and restaurants of Montclair, Rockridge and College Avenue.  Highway 13 at the bottom of the hills provides quick and easy transportation to Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco.  It joins with Highway 24 close by for commuting to Orinda, Lafayette and the rest of Contra Costa County.  

An overhead view illustrates the unique multi-level construction which allows each window to capture the light and color from virtually every side of the building.  An interior elevator moves from one floor to another, and a two car garage affords easy off street parking.    

This spacious living room reveals the commitment that has been made to devising a truly indoor/outdoor living experience.  Virtual floor to ceiling sliding glass doors and windows provide elegance to the room's living experience.  The floor space is expansive, allowing multiple configurations of furniture, tables and chairs around, or adjacent to, the centrally located fireplace. 

A reverse perspective shows the congenial open space of the living area.  Guests and residents can move smoothly from one room to another, and out to the inviting patio--just perfect when entertaining.  

This dining area is ideally placed just off the kitchen, and close to the entrance of the doors leading outside. The space is slightly recessed, with a full view of the outdoor scene, and just steps from the kitchen for easy meal service.  It table could easily serve as a buffet table when a large luncheon is being offered. 

This gleaming new kitchen has been created to provide multiple amenities that should please the most demanding of home chefs.  

This very efficient working space features Carrera marble counters and a waterfall island which easily doubles as a generous workspace and breakfast bar.  Additional amenities include a gas range/cooktop, refrigerator and wet bar.  Surrounded by walls of windows with views to the hills and sheltering trees, this a choice corner of the home.

This handsome deck most certainly enhances the appeal of this home.  As is seen in the opening scene above, this inviting space is located along the entire far wall of the second floor of  the home, providing calm and serenity when needed, and a perfect venue for hosting friends..  

The top floor of the residence features the stunning primary suite seen here.  Virtually located among the treetops, it provides a private outdoor view balcony that is accessed through a pair of French doors.  Additional window space creates a warm and inviting ambiance, and the softly colored walls offer a perfect contrast to the richly colored hardwood floors.  

The step back wall space to the left creates a perfect niche for a generously sized chest of drawers, while additional floorspace is available for a small sofa, or a pair of soft chairs, and a side table.

Just steps away is this classic en suite bathroom.  A spacious washstand provides generous counterspace, above which is large mirror and a soft lighting fixture.  A shower and tub combine to make this a perfect addition to the primary bedroom,

There are four bedrooms in the home.  Two will be shown for your consideration.  This  outstanding studio space is located on the lower of the three floors.  It features impressive floorspace that easily accommodates a generous living room configuration, and still affords room for an office, library, an arts and craft, or music room.  The bed is easily tucked into a windowed nook, creating additional central floor space. 

The very generous overhead lighting is enhanced with a handsome skylight, and the door provides exterior access for residents.  

An additional perspective illustrates the large view windows that add so much charm to the room.  Built in bookcases are seen on the left.  

This en suite bathroom, combined with the full studio space seen above,  offers multiple opportunities for the use of this flexible unit.   

To the right of the home is this downslope lot that is included in the price of the home.  A wider view, with respect to the home, is seen above in the second picture of the blog. 

A more detailed presentation of the home's location and lot for your reference.
