Anyone who has lived in the Bay area for any period of time has heard about the stunning and sweeping hilltop views of San Francisco Bay that are available from the homes in Hiller Highlands, as is evidenced by the scene above.  

This very special townhome is carefully designed to take advantage of this unique location high on this Oakland hillside.  As can be seen, these rooms easily capture the scene below in all its drama and beauty. 

Located in Hiller Highlands, It offers 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms in a generous 1796 sf of living space.  

This scene reveals the spacious floor to ceiling French doors that slide aside to invite both residents and guests to step outside to the outdoor balcony and enjoy the stunning top of the world experience that is available any hour of the day. 

A different perspective reveals the richly colored hardwood floors, the high ceilings that capture and reflect the exterior light, and of course, the large and welcoming central fireplace which is always especially welcome on cool East Bay afternoons, and early winter evening, 

At the opposite side of the room, is this engaging dining area that is equally effective for an afternoon luncheon, or a more formal candlelight dinner.  The three surrounding bay windows capture additional city views to add to the glass door windows already present in the living room.  

The adjacent floor to ceiling bookcase can serve multiple purposes.  While it is especially effective for displaying favorite books, and collectibles, it has sufficient space for storing dining room plates, dishes and serving pieces, if needed.  

This warmly colored and well designed updated kitchen, is especially effective for the home chef.  Everything that could be needed for preparation and service is available within steps.  Generous stone counter space is enhanced with the presence of the spacious, and gently curved kitchen island.  

Directly above the lighting is especially well conceived.  It is generous, warm, and enhanced with an always welcome skylight.  

Updated appliances are present in the form of a dishwasher, gas range cooktop, and dishwasher.  

Just outside the French doors in the main room, is a wide wooden view deck that allows one to experience the panorama below while enjoying a relaxing afternoon entertaining friends, or reading a good book.    

One can never tire of a scene like this.  The visual experience varies day to day, and season to season, and is always amazing.  

There are three bedrooms in the residence.  The largest of the three is this distinctive en suite primary bedroom that has its own welcoming fireplace to enjoy during cool hillside evenings.  

Immediately adjacent is the freshly renewed primary bathroom, seen here.  Stone counters cover a substantial wooden counter that is topped with a full length mirror.   A spacious and inviting tub completes the scene.  

Opposite the tub is a stall shower.  The whole space is aglow from the light flowing in through the dual paned window over the tub.  

A second bedroom easily accommodates a comfortably sized bed with room remaining for soft side chairs, and if desired, a dresser.

A third bedroom, seen here, is being very effectively used as an office space.  The comfortable floorspace coupled with the far wall of bookcases make this a very flexible space no matter what choice is made for its use.  

Even more appealing is the easy access to the home's rear patio just steps away.  

Just outside, is this fenced private patio area with room for entertaining, or just relaxing on a lazy afternoon.  The central gate leads to a common area with a walking path.  

The home's frontage reveals the balcony, multiple balcony windows, and two car garage directly below.  This townhome is part of the Hiller Highlands community, and amenities available include a pool and tennis courts.  

If this handsome home is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,295,000.
