Nestled among the trees, and high in the hills above Berkeley, is this remarkable home that offers a Tahoe like retreat among verdant hillsides. Its rustic external appearance is impressively combined with the gleaming updated living experience that is seen throughout the house.
Located at 3333 Dwight Way, it manages to combine the semi-rustic look of the many richly colored overhead beams, with the softness of lightly colored off white walls, to create a striking effect.
One of home's most exceptional assets is the central portion of the far wall of glass doors. It opens to the west, and San Francisco Bay views, providing true indoor-outdoor living, no matter what the time of day, or season.
A slightly different perspective reveals the size of the living room that easily offers space for the two large soft sided chairs, a central sofa, and matching side tables.
The generous fireplace to the right is always available on cooler Bay area evenings to provide warmth and comfort when relaxing on a quiet evening, or when hosting friends.
Just steps away is this extraordinary outside porch that can accommodate large parties or special events, and encourages an easy transition from both the living room and kitchen to view the panorama below.
There is no question that the East Bay hills have some of the most compelling and dramatic views available. When they are experienced from the serenity and beauty of the surrounding hillsides, they are even more exceptional.
Just steps away, is this perfect location for dining and meal service. A six seated dining table is well placed close to the serving and preparation counterspace of the kitchen.
The warm color the of the wooden shelving and cabinetry is especially complimentary to the golden tile countertops, and overhead beams. This is a very efficient working space-everything is within easy reach. Amenities include a dishwasher, a gas range cooktop, and refrigerator.
All of the home's three bedrooms are on the second floor. Two will be shown for your consideration. The first, seen here, is a fascinating mix of glass and light.
The far wall, with its tall view windows, and door to the engaging outside deck, is a delight, as are the imaginative sliding glass closet doors and tall bookshelf. There is yet additional space for a small home office, if desired.
The second bedroom continues the design theme seen directly above, with the pairing of a glass door with view windows, and direct access to a serene exterior deck.
All three upstairs bedrooms share this stunning bathroom with this expansive and inviting tub, and lengthy counter space.
This calming and shady second floor deck is a delight-perfect for enjoying a pleasant afternoon of quiet reading and a cup of tea.
Just below the second floor deck, is this dual level patio space that presents another opportunity for experiencing the beauty of the hillsides around you.
An additional deck, seen here, opens to the lush rolling hillsides that surround this residence, and also opens to the Bay area vistas below-a perfect site for barbeques, parties, and luncheons.
If one appreciates the tranquility of a hillside retreat, but wants to be close to the drama and excitement that the Bay area offers, this is the home for you.
Worth noting-The property is large, and includes four lots with a beautiful seasonal stream that runs through it. The home itself has 3 bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms in 1826 sq. ft. of living space.
