This outstanding hillside home combines two very desirable features that are always in demand--large, beautifully conceived rooms, and a panoramic Bay area view below.

Located at 7832 Hillmont Drive in the Oakland hills, it offers 4 bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms and 3334 square feet of gracious living. 

The entire space seen above represents an outstanding living experience.  Tall, softly lit ceilings supplement the exterior lighting that is captured by the floor to ceiling windows and doors seen along the western  side of the home.  

The very size and scope of the room encourages a variety of potential floorplans that can take advantage of, and capture, both the interior and exterior beauty of the house.  

This home is designed for both one's own unique living experience, and  is also perfectly suited to entertaining.  Whether one wants to invite a small group of friends for a relaxing evening together, or hold a special event when hosting a party, anniversary, or large luncheon, the fit for all is perfect.  

A large dining area enhances the far side of the room, and its use can easily accommodate all the many varied events listed above-whether a formal meal or a buffet luncheon.  

Moving closer, one can experience the the literal wall of windows that provide views of the many city scenes below.    

Worth noting is the distinctive tapered column to the right that adds more drama to the entire floorspace.  

Just outside is a view balcony that is one of three balconies that allow one to truly appreciate the striking panorama seen below this outstanding hillside residence.  

This view, and the one below, reveal the reason why Oakland's East Bay hills are in such demand by homebuyers.

Seen here is Marin, the entire San Francisco Bay, both the Golden Gate and Bay Bridge, and the cities of Oakland and San Francisco, 

What is marvelous is that this panorama is available 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week, and the visual experiences change as the weather and seasons change.  

To the south, even more vistas are captured.  Oakland, Oakland Airport, South San Francisco and South Bay are seen here.  

The final confirmation that this home is designed for both hospitality and personal enjoyment is this very exceptional kitchen.  

Perfectly located just off the living and dining areas, it has been conceived  as a prime source of both imaginative food and beverage service through an outstanding presence of amenities to make that happen.  

A gracefully curved center island can provide a variety of opportunities for its use.  It can serve as a cocktail bar, as a serving platform for prepared food, or a preparation space for that food.  

A liquor cabinet and microwave are directly below.  

There are so many additional amenities included in this updated showplace, some of which include granite countertops, all stainless steel appliances, a copper double sink, and Thermador range.  

Multilevel storage cabinets allow generous storage opportunities, and glass fronted cabinets await displays of favorite china and beverage glasses.  

A handsome and decorative iron railing staircase leads one upstairs to three of the home's bedrooms.  

Each of the upstairs bedrooms are truly impressive with their glowing wooden floors and off white colored walls.  The largest of the three, seen here, could be assigned the role of the master bedroom, due to its size and exceptional bathroom features.   

The room easily holds twin nightstands, a soft side chair and plant topped side table, but alternately could have a chest of drawers and a pair of matching side chairs along with the nightstands if needed.  

The room is en suite, and the entrance to the bathroom is to the top left. 

This handsomely color coordinated tile showplace provides a dual sink counter with storage below, a walk in shower, toilet, and at the far end, an inviting sunken bathtub.  

A second bedroom is highlighted by the floor to ceiling sliding glass door and window that allows one to move to an outside porch that offers a view of the scenery below.  

It, too, is generous in size, and there is an inset space at the far end to the right that can hold a tall chest of drawers, or armoire.   

An additional perspective reveals a small office space complete with a nearby view balcony.  

This second bedroom is also en suite, and has a large jet spray bathtub, and a long dual sink counter space, stall shower and toilet. 

Also on the second floor with an equally desirable living space, multiple view windows, and sliding glass door to the outside deck is this handsome third bedroom. 

This is the choice view deck that is shared by both the last two bedrooms.  

On the lower level of the home is this very versatile and especially inviting space that is currently being used as a combination family room and gym.  

In fact, its generous floor space, warm colors, graceful entry arches, and multiple overhead skylights invite any number of potential uses, should the need arise, 

In addition to the above floorspace, this lower bedroom and a nearby full toilet space is available if and when needed.  

Yet another view of the lower level reveals the flexibility of this space.  

If this truly exceptional home is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280 regarding it.  It is being offered for sale for $1,095,000.
