This handsome and spacious home is located at 298 Elysian Fields in Oakland's Sequoyah Highlands neighborhood, and shows its immediate charm with a well designed and sunny curb appeal.  It features approximately 2,259 sf of roomy living space, that includes 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

Upon entering the living room, you are immediately aware of two special and unique features.  The first is the sweeping picture window that allows sparkling light inside, and the second is the very commanding and welcoming fireplace that anchors this space.  What an excellent architectural pairing.  


Looking further, many amenities are immediately noticed.  The hardwood floors, combine with the crown molding, and the desirable floor and door trim, add charm in this room, and to other rooms throughout the home.  And extra plus is the incorporation of dual pane windows, and recessed lighting.

Just steps away is the very appealing formal dining room which includes views of the back patio area.  


It is always a special asset to have a formal dining room for entertaining, but, because of its flexibility, it can be the site of a casual luncheon or tea, as well. 


The kitchen has so many elements to recommend it.  It has an excellent counter space for food preparation, and multiple cabinets at every level for pots, pans, china and glassware.  Note the delightful bay window over the sink.  


The kitchen has such a pleasant ambiance, which is especially enhanced by the gentle lighting, and warmly colored cabinets.  

The presence of an eat-in kitchen is such an asset.  Not everyone wants to eat at the formal dining table, especially for breakfast or casual meals.  As a result, this area serves many purposes. Be sure to note the sliding glass door that allows food to be brought outside for patio dining and entertaining.  

The master bedroom in this home is a very attractive, and, in addition to the glowing wood flooring, it has an exceedingly spacious closet the offers mirrored sliding glass doors.  

The master bathroom is exceptional.  With it updated lighting over the basin, and built in vanity, it has an appealing ambiance.  Be sure to note the inviting walk in shower.  

Another bedroom and bathroom continue the theme of mirrored doors on the closet, hardwood floors, and spacious windows with views to the greenery outside.

This bathroom is just dazzling.  Note its custom lighting, and splendid counter and storage space.  

Lastly, the third and final bedroom does not disappoint, and presents some creative design opportunities. 

As can be seen below, there is a bonus room which is exceedingly flexible.  It could be an office, au pair space, media, or rumpus room depending on the needs of the homeowners.  An added bonus is that it has immediate access to the back yard.

This gleaming garage is full of storage space.  Cabinets and shelving are featured on both interior side walls.  There is an automatic garage door opener which is always a welcome amenity.

There is a split level patio, and side yards to add to the enjoyment of outdoor living on those days that you just have to be outside utilizing all that this home has to offer.  

This home is being offered for sale for $924,000.  It is exceedingly well located in the Oakland hills above Highway 580.  This location allows rapid transportation to Oakland and Montclair to the north and to San Leandro and Hayward to the south.  Oakland Zoo and the Chabot Space and Science Center are just moments away as is Chabot College. 

If this home is of interest to you, or you would like to see others in the area, please call me with your interests at (510) 517-6280.
