Located high on a hill overlooking the SF Bay area, this stunning home at 7 Woodmont Way in Oakland's Montclair district is truly impressive.  Designed by renowned architect Jack Tam, it is exceedingly spacious, and offers 5 bedrooms and 4 baths, and approximately 5830 sf of living space.  Its multi-level floor plan, imaginative balconies and window placement draw in light and views from every angle.  

The imagination and creativity in this home begins as soon you reach the front entrance.  Note the handsome vertical windows and highly peaked roof with additional skylights .  

The entry hall is equally impressive.  In keeping with the concept of lightness and space, the home offers the dramatic entry floorspace , carpeted stairs  with graceful railings to the second floor, and, looking upwards, a truly impressive view of the sky lighted dome above.  


 As expected, the living room is going to be a showplace of creativity.  Beginning with stunning floor to ceiling views of the SF Bay area, the stylish central fireplace, wall to wall carpeting, and doors that lead to a huge exterior balcony, and it is hard to deny its appeal.  

It would be difficult to find a place in this room that is not calming and welcoming, and perfect for entertaining whether morning or evening.

Stepping outside through the spacious French doors, you are aware of all that the home's location has to offer.  This relaxing balcony is perfectly suited to a enjoyable luncheon or tea, entertaining friends, or just quietly reading on a lazy afternoon.

This balcony view shown here is to the southern half of the Bay area.  A later view below shows the northern half.  Directly ahead is the Oakland airport, Oakland, and across the Bay is the San Francisco peninsula.  

The home's formal dining space is delightful.  Perfectly sized, and attractively laid out, it has a 24 hour view of the SF Bay Bridge and San Francisco.  Its warm wooden floors and circular ceiling design adds to the appeal.

A reverse view of the dining room illustrates once again the impressive entryway and stairway.  Immediately adjacent to the kitchen, this cozy space  is conveniently located for formal dinners, or just a casual meal.  Be sure to observe the warm hardwood floors-- both here, and in the adjacent kitchen and nearby dining nook.  


This sparkling kitchen has just about anything that a chef could require. Totally updated, with gleaming appliances, central work island, and stone counters, it also has very unique WOK station for an extra added attraction.   

This delightfully rounded out breakfast nook just off the kitchen is a pleasing treat for meals, or a morning coffee enjoying the view.  

This warm and welcoming family room, with its wall to wall carpeting, spacious fireplace, and substantial window space is just another asset to add to the already substantial group of impressive elements that this home has to offer.  

Sweeping architectural lines of site flow throughout the home, as is seen here in the changes of levels between rooms and floors.  

The home has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.  The master bedroom below is a desirable mix of comfort and creativity.  Two spacious doors allow immediate access to a view driven balcony, and an impressive central fireplace divides the room into two restful portions.  

The adjacent master bathroom is stunning.  Views abound.  Everything is at its very best,  Be sure to note the tub with water jets, and the  floors, mirrors and counters that shine in the ambient light.  

While there are five bedrooms, three are being shown here for your review.  Below is another bedroom/bathroom combination So many things to discover-- the high bedroom ceiling, the exterior views, the wall to wall carpeting, and imaginative headboard space at the head of the bed.  

The nearby bathroom is yet another example of pairing light with design. The substantial mirror reflects the stylish shower space opposite, and  the very appealing double sinks furnish plentiful storage for your personal items. 

A third bedroom continues the creative ceiling treatment, and offers yet another sweeping balcony just outside the generous doorway.

As can be expected with a home of this size, there is ample space for an office, library or den.  Built in storage spaces make the choice easier.

A hot tub and sauna add just one more layer of pleasing amenities in that this home has to offer. It is worth noting that the energy for both, plus the rest of the home, is available through owned solar panels.  


 Other strong assets to consider include a low maintenance yard with redwood trees, a three car garage, and an amazing location.  Just moments from Highway 13, choosing to go west allows transportation to Oakland and San Francisco.  Going east takes you to Contra Costa County and Orinda, Lafayette, and Walnut Creek.  Berkeley is directly next door.  No matter which direction you choose, the shops, restaurants and stores of Rockridge, Montclair and Elmwood are close by for fun and enjoyment.
