This Oakland hills home, with its dramatic street presence, is located at 4262 Terrabella Way in the popular Redwood Heights neighborhood, and is perfectly placed for access to efficient transportation, outstanding shopping, and multiple recreational opportunities.   

  Just moments from the shops and restaurants of Montclair Village and the Lincoln Square Shopping Center, there is easy access to both Highways 13 and 580 for travel to Oakland, Berkeley and Contra Costa County.  The many hiking and walking trails of Redwood Regional Park are close by off nearby Redwood Road. 

The home offers 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms in a very expansive 4100 sf +/- of living space.   

This expansive great room is ideally suited to gracious living.  Centered around a wide, imaginatively conceived fireplace, it is aglow with light from the striking two story wall of windows close by.  

A reverse perspective reveals the play of color and light from the front entry.  The engaging multi-paned front door, and second floor windows, draw yet more warmth into the space while highlighting the softly colored hardwood floors that are seen throughout house.    

A great deal of thought has gone into creating this living space so that it is equally suited to both day to day living and entertaining.  A long central island anchors the space, and can easily provide multiple functions-from a counter space with chairs for casual meals, to a serving space for food and beverages, to a generous workspace for food preparation.  

The list of upgraded amenities here is impressive, and should please the most imaginative of home chefs.  In addition to the generous stone counter spaces throughout, there is a gas range cooktop, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, built in range oven, pantry, wet bar, and storage space at every level.   

In addition, there is a charming breakfast nook at the far end that looks out on the garden, and features a sliding glass door that  provide access to a restful patio area-perfect when hosting parties or luncheons.  

Just to the right of the entry is a perfect combination of rooms that can easily be the heart of the home.  The large dining room has more than enough room for hosting multiple parties and events, and the immediately adjacent step up family room affords more than generous seating for larger groups when needed.  

This family room is spacious enough to provide a variety of seating and entertaining design conceptions that can meet the specific needs of the home's residents.  

There are four bedrooms in the home.  Two will be shown for your consideration.  The first, seen here, and directly below, is the primary bedroom suite that is both soothing and substantial. 

A set of four bay style windows look out on the views below.  The room easily accommodates a large comfortable bed, and there is additional floorspace for a settee, a wide window seat, and chests of drawers, if desired.  

A pleasant seating area has been created to the right of the bed, and the sliding glass door opens to invite access to a tree shaded balcony.

An adjacent  primary bathroom features a wide dual sink counter with a full overhead mirror.   Just steps away is a handsome tile floor, a stall shower, and a sunken tub.  

What a soothing way to end a long day--a soothing soak in this sunken tub with jets, and a view of the scene below.  

A second charming bedroom is seen here-accompanied, as are so many other spaces in the home, with a set of wide windows that provide light and warmth when desired.  

A little ante room has multiple uses-here as a seating area, but it could also be utilized as a desk or study area.  

This pleasing en suite bathroom is just steps from the second bedroom that is seen above.  

Worthy of note- in the lower level of the home, there is this bonus room with its own entrance that includes a bedroom, bathroom, and a mini kitchen that is seen above.  

As indicated above, this soothing patio space is right off the kitchen, and it is equally suitable for a small gathering, or a quiet sunny afternoon  under the trees.  

The home sits high in the hills of Oakland, and as such, offers this sweeping panorama for year round pleasure.  Directly below is the Oakland Hills Tennis Club.  

If this unique home with its sweeping views and gracious interior is of interest to you, please call me with your inquires regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  The home is being offered for sale for $1,495,000.
