This architectural stunner is a showplace of design-both indoors and outdoors. Still in demand by buyers, and built in 1928, it reflects the Spanish designs so popular in the era, yet it still remains appealing and refreshed.  Located at 4420 Bridgeview Drive, it has approximately 2651 sf. of space, 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths.

 Below, note the dramatic entry door and the entry hall,  with its sweeping stairway to the second floor.


The entry leads to the very inviting living room.  There are so many subtle, yet classical architectural touches here.  Examples include the beamed ceilings, arched windows, a dramatic fireplace, hardwood floors and the charming Spanish balcony 


The dining room with its handsome entry doors and spacious arched windows continue the theme further into the home.

The engaging updated kitchen offers plenty of counter and floor space for entertaining, or it is equally appealing for a quiet meal at home.

There are four bedrooms in the home.  Two are shown here for your interest.

The first is very spacious, and the second offers dramatic Bay views to enjoy day or night.


The home features a very unique study that is perfect for work or study times.  It was created from preserved forest, and includes a stone fireplace and a redwood stump desk.

This home has some truly outstanding garden space.  Long established trees, plants and gardens make this an irresistible retreat.  It includes 2 artisan ponds with waterfalls, a greenhouse and a detached cottage.  

This home is close to two of Oakland's popular neighborhood shops and restaurants in Montclair and Glenview, and Freeways 580 or 13 can take you downtown Oakland or to Contra Costa  County.  

This is an exceptional home.  It has been treasured for years.  If you would like more information about its many features, call me at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale at $1,495,000.
