This handsome living room, anchored by a dramatic central fireplace, represents the style of gracious living and entertaining that will be seen throughout the home. 

Located at 123 Hagar Avenue in Piedmont, the house is expansive, providing 3 levels of living space, 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 3420 sf +/- of living space.  

The residence has been conceived with the idea of capturing and enjoying the sweeping panoramic views that lie out and below the home.  Just steps from the living room is a large balcony that invites one to step outside to relax and experience the beauty below.  

The balcony is an splendid location from which to savor the expanse   below-perhaps while enjoying an early morning breakfast, or a sun filled luncheon.  

 The full sweep of  of San Francisco, Oakland, the Bay Bridge, San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Marin County is revealed here.  This compelling vista is constantly enhanced as the seasons change, and the time of day colors the sky and waters below.   

For a more conventional dining experience, this spacious light filled dining room awaits guests and residents.  Just steps from the living room, it is equally suited to both formal and casual dining.  Its size will permit a larger table with additional space available for a buffet/bar.  

Adjacent to the dining room, this stunningly upgraded kitchen provides a extensive array of amenities that should please the most demanding of chefs.  

Impressively efficient, the workspace is generous, the lighting is well placed and thoughtfully planned, and the warmly colored wooden floors compliment the colors of the cabinets and shelving.  

Gleaming appliances include a highly desirable built in La Cornue 36 " gas range cooktop, refrigerator, microwave, and refrigerator.  

A different perspective illustrates the expanse of cabinetry, shelving, and display space that should easily accommodate both casual and formal china, serving pieces and choice glassware.  

The central island is perfectly placed to serve as a workspace, serving surface and a cozy eat in kitchen spot.  

Worth of note is the spacious skylight that supplements the overall lighting.  

A corner of the kitchen offers this charming eat in kitchen space with a view to the front patio area.  Perfect for a light lunch or breakfast, the adjacent  glass doors open to reveal access to the patio.   

An evening view of this serene patio reveals its subtle charm.  Because it is adjacent to the kitchen, one can easily accommodate guests with food and beverages as the need arises.    

There are four bedrooms in the home.  Three will be shown for your consideration.  The first, seen here, is this exceptional primary suite.  It has been carefully envisioned to combine all the many elements that creates this captivating ambiance.  

The plentiful floorspace provides for the placement of a generously sized bed, and seating space against the far window.  A window seat or sofa, and a pair of soft chairs would fit beautifully there.  

One of the highlights of this room is the cities wide view balcony that is instantly accessed through a pair of doors at the foot of the bed.  

A reverse perspective shows the full size and charm of this very special retreat.  The primary bathroom is straight ahead.

This gleaming primary bathroom immediately captures the light and sweep of the view below, and has been enhanced to provide beauty and comfort in the form of a sunken tub with jets, a large multi-jet stall shower, and an impressive pairing of twin sinks.   

This pleasant second bedroom has handsome hardwood floors, is comfortably sized, and is enhanced with a set of large view windows.

This mid-level third bedroom features a charming set of display bookcases and storage cabinets, and cheerful overhead lighting, making it a particularly attractive living space.  

As would be expected in a home of this quality, there are multiple opportunities for entertaining and enjoying the company of friends.  The middle level of the residence provides that opportunity in the form of this inviting family room.  

Decidedly flexible in its potential configuration, it is anchored by a  large central fireplace, around which many an evening's games, meals, or parties could be arranged.  

Most importantly, it includes a set of large floor to ceiling doors that open to the marvelous outside view balcony seen below.  

This outdoor balcony will most certainly become one of the most utilized spaces in the home.  Sheltered from the sun by the handsome wooden roof, it still provides the sweep of the Bay area views that are world renowned.  

Against the far wall is a large hot tub that is immediately inviting, and there is more than sufficient additional space for a luncheon, party, or evening event.  

There is yet one more floor level in the house, as seen here.  It is a space that is as flexible as one's needs.  Currently being used as an art studio, play room, and recreation center, it is fully open to an outdoor patio space through two floor to ceiling glass doors.  

It has a sink and wet bar, and a virtually wall to wall food preparation space.  A half bath is available nearby.  

Just outside of this lower level, is a fenced in patio area and walkway to the garden area of the home.  The stairs to the right are from the second floor patio with the hot tub.  

This pleasant brick seating area is located under, and close to, some of the myriad of fruit trees and a generous variety of plants, and foliage that make this a soothing retreat.  All are discovered as one utilizes the wandering pathways provided.  

If this truly memorable home has caught your attention, please contact me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $2,998,000.
