This marvelous Mid-Century Modern home is located at 6274 Clive Avenue in the hills of Oakland in the Piedmont Pines neighborhood.  For those who want to enjoy the serenity of Tahoe like living close to all the amenities of the Bay area, this home is a perfect choice.  it offers 2 bedrooms and 1 1/2  bathrooms in 1472 +/- sf of living space.  

A reverse view of the scene above reveals the distinctive and charming A frame construction, which is in perfect harmony with the Mid-Century Modern design concept that you will see throughout the residence.    Elements to look for include walls of glass, simplicity of design, generous open space, giant sliding glass doors, changes in elevation, and integration with nature.  

Just outside of the living room, is this inviting and spacious wooden deck that is settled in comfortably among the soothing trees that surround the property.   This is a perfect spot for entertaining, as it is just off the kitchen and living room, allowing guests and residents to move freely from one area to another during the day.  

This glowing living room provides a full length wall of windows that creates an impression of additional space in an already spacious living space.  Its unique ceiling is exceptional, and the far wall is the site of a distinctive, and always desirable, fireplace.  

This residence is ideal for those who enjoy indoor/outdoor living.  Just to the right of the doors to the wooden deck seen above, is this delightful, and cozy, eat in nook that benefits by being just adjacent to the kitchen with its additional seating at the serving counter. 

However, with just a simple opening of the floor to ceiling sliding glass door directly ahead, residents and guests can easily move outside to an additional larger deck to enjoy their meals.  

Just off the kitchen, this sheltered wooden deck can comfortably contain this large table with additional room available for a barbeque, grill cart, serving tables, and much more additional seating, when needed,  

This cheerful kitchen has been upgraded and manages to provide quite a lot of amenities for a busy chef in this well placed location.  Just beyond the eat in kitchen counter are stone counters, a built in double oven, a gas range/cooktop, a refrigerator, and a pantry.  

This comfortable bedroom is one of two in the residence.  The natural light and outside greenery are captured in the very spacious picture window, and the warm color of the off white walls is complimented by the softy colored hardwood floors.  

The house's gleaming  primary bathroom is comfortable in size, providing a large counter space with dual sinks and full length mirror, a stall shower, and a tub.  

This cozy, but delightful loft space is currently being used as a small study and retreat space, complete with soft chairs and bookcase for reading material.  It could just as easily be converted into a playroom, a library, music room or den.  NOTE: There is also a small family room available that is not shown here.  

Below the carport that is located up the stairs to the right, is this sunlight filled office space.  Ideally placed just off the main home, it offers privacy and quiet, yet is just steps away from the main residence.  

This very pleasant hillside view of the front of the home reveals its appeal.  Surrounded by long established trees and greenery, its subtle mix of colors is serene and tranquil.  If this, or another home in the area, interests you, please call me with your questions at (510) 517-6280.  The residence is being offered for sale for $995,000.
