High in the hills of Oakland is this Mediterranean styled home that offers privacy and a pleasing serenity, yet is close to everything that living in the Bay area provides.  Located at 4373 Sequoyah Road, it offers 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms in a very generous 2591 sf of living space.  

This remarkable front garden is entered through a very unique wrought iron gate, and is surrounded by a high wall that ensures an enviable retreat, and tranquil personal space.  

The lush surrounding garden foliage is well established and varied in color and presentation, and the yard is anchored by this three tiered, gently flowing front fountain,

This opening view of the home reveals the expanse of space available in the living room and dining room.  Warmly colored hardwood floors harmonize perfectly with the off white walls, and the dramatic overhead open beam ceiling.  

A large corner fireplace, with its promised warmth, awaits the Bay area's cooler afternoons and evenings.  

Dual entry arches and a classic Mediterranean support column separate the living room and dining room.  Guests can easily move from one room to another when meals are being served. 

On days or evenings when the meal or entertainment dictates, floor to ceiling French door opens to the expansive outside patio area.  

Just outside the dining room doors is this splendid terra cotta tiled deck which awaits various living and entertaining configurations depending on the events and activities planned.  

Close by, this inviting kitchen space has been updated to create an ambiance that should please any home chef.  As both pictures above and below reveal, there is floor to ceiling cabinetry that affords more than generous space for storage, and for immediate access to one's favorite china, glassware, cooking and serving pieces. 

The trio of picture windows over the sink provides the light and the views from the stunning rear gardens.    

The kitchen has been updated, and includes an electric range/cooktop, dishwasher, refrigerator, and stone countertops.  

Just steps away from the kitchen, is this bright and inviting family room.  On pleasant sunny days, the French doors on the left open onto the adjacent spacious patio, and the outstanding rear grounds of the home.  

This residence truly comes into its own when one views the sweep and drama of its rear gardens.  Its distinctive multi-level seating locations are surrounded by long established gardens, luxuriant grass, and inviting shade trees, and its uses are as flexible as one needs arise.  

There are four bedrooms in the home.  Three will be shown for your consideration.  One of the most attractive has to be the primary bedroom that is seen above. 

Large, with warmly colored off white walls and hardwood floors, it is enhanced with a virtual floor to ceiling sliding glass door out to a personal and private patio. 

A second bedroom easily accommodates a pair of twin beds and a desk, and looks out on the large backyard seen above. 

A sizeable en suite third bedroom is enhanced with a side wall that is filled with desirable personal closet space.  

An overhead view of the house reveals the true size of the property, and its many combinations and variations of living spaces. 

Directly below is the patio space off the dining room, and the top left illustrates the outstanding impact of the rear gardens. 

Notable numbers--the lot is 17,000 square feet, and the home sits on 0.3900 acres.   

If this gracious and private home is of interest to you, please call me with your questions regarding it at (510) 517-6280.  It is being offered for sale for $1,299,000.
