This handsome home, with its subtle Tudor architectural influence, is found high in the Oakland hills in Montclair at 5978 Glenarms Drive.  It offers 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a spacious 2215 sf of living space.  

It is exceptionally well located in the hills close to the North Oakland Regional Sports Center, Temescal Regional Recreation Center, and Tilden Park is close by for those who enjoy outdoor activities, and it is close to the shopping and dining centers of both Berkeley, Rockridge, and Montclair.

Highways 13 and 24 interchange also close by, giving immediate access to Oakland and San Francisco to the west, and Contra Costa County to the east.  

The inviting rear garden is large, and awaits pleasant outdoor parties, special events, and the entertaining of friends and family.  It is private, fenced, and is surrounded by views of old growth trees and greenery. 

This glowing living room and dining room combination is especially dramatic upon entry.  The open space living concept is truly revealed with this view.  

From the ground floor all the way up to the top of the skylighted ceiling, the room is aglow with light from every direction, and creates a marvelous ambiance for daily living.  

The living room is especially comfortable and inviting, and the seating area is complimented by a pair of marvelous sliding glass doors that open to the garden, and are topped by a gracefully arched overhead window.  

Nearby, a large dining room awaits quiet evening meals, or perhaps a buffet luncheon where guests can move freely from the table through yet another sliding glass door to enjoy the company of other guests in the outdoor patio.   

Adjacent to the dining room, and very well located, is this island/bar that can serve multiple purposes--as a site for serving and enjoying beverages, a place to converse with the cook while meals are being prepared, or as a serving surface for varied a la carte dishes. 

This outstanding kitchen has been well conceived to please the most demanding of home chefs.  It has been updated, and features generous and well placed cabinetry, has a pantry, quartz countertops, multiple work stations, gleaming appliances, and a bay window over the sink that captures views from the exterior grounds.  

Steps away is this inviting niche that perfectly accommodates an eat in kitchen table and chairs for a relaxing morning breakfast, or an afternoon cup of tea and with a good book.  

Once again, another sliding glass door opens to the patio area, providing yet another way though which food can be brought from the kitchen to the gardens.  

There are three bedrooms in the home.  Seen here is the main floor bedroom, with full bath, and cozy wall inset that is perfect for a personal office/desk combination.

Moving to the second floor, one discovers this marvelous primary bedroom with so many features to recommend it.  Multiple sets of  windows capture the surrounding sunlight, and a distinctive personal fireplace is enhanced with an attached bookcase that is perfect for storing favorite collectibles and books. 

This is the largest bedroom of the three, and offers generous floorspace that can accommodate a variety of floorplans to please.  

This primary bathroom soaking tub is immediately inviting, and is enhanced with a dramatic skylight.  There is a walk in closet nearby.  

Steps away is this built in dual sink counter with storage below, and to the sides, and a cheerful matching pair of mirrors and lighting fixtures.  

A second upstairs bedroom is large, easily accommodating two beds, with room left over for a chest of drawers, desk, or supplementary soft sided seating.

Moving once again to the rear gardens of the home, one can experience the panoramic view of the surrounding hillsides with their tall and well established tree growth and quiet serenity.

If you would like to make this exceptionally engaging home yours, I encourage you to call me promptly with your questions regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,395,000.
