This distinctive home at 6207 Westover Drive in the hills above Oakland, is immediately compelling in its size and presentation.  It has  been carefully conceived with the goal of combining the external woodland serenity with the many softly lit interior living spaces.  

The home offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in approximately 1984 sf of living space, and has been thoughtfully updated throughout. 

The enormous great room easily provides both living and entertaining  space, and an perfect flow from one to another right out to the expansive view porch. 

Its glowing and welcoming ambiance is created through the use of floor to ceiling windows and doors,  multiple skylights, a high open beamed off white ceiling, and softly colored hardwood floors.  

A reverse perspective reveals both the welcoming custom fireplace that anchors the living room space, and the view towards the formal dining room and kitchen space-a perfect design for gracious living and entertaining.  

A floor to ceiling wall of glass reflects the gleaming kitchen and adjacent dining space.  Every element can serve effectively when entertaining.  When not being used for a formal dinner, the dining table can easily become a buffet table when food is being taken outside to the porch, while the kitchen island counter can be used for serving assorted beverages.    

This sharp and efficient kitchen provides ideal amenities for the home chef.  Included is the generous island working space, freestanding range oven, dishwasher, and refrigerator.  

Also on the top floor of this special home is this charming space which is currently being used as a family room, and is distinctive with its wall of reclaimed wood to the left.  French doors open to the outside for easy access to the front deck of the home.  

There are 3 bedrooms in the home.  Two will be shown for your consideration.  The first, above, on the main floor, continues the design theme of an off white open beam wooden ceiling, and a spacious floor plan.   A wide center window invites in the colors of the multi colored trees, and an attractive en suite bathroom is just steps away.  

A view of one of the lower level bedrooms reveals this striking space that provides a wide mirrored closet, generous floor space, and a set of French doors opening onto a personal balcony.  

Adjacent to the second bedroom is this radiant bathroom with its large stall shower, and crisp white and black sink.

In addition to another smaller bedroom and bath on the lower level, there is an additional space which is being used as a rumpus room and  small work studio.  While the present use is eminently suitable, the alternate uses are as variable as one's needs dictate. 

 Moving to the front of the home, a set of stairs leads down to a front deck that is ideally suited for hosting friends and relaxation under the sheltering trees.  A two car garage offers off street covered parking.  

At the base of the steps is this flexible deck area that awaits parties, special events, and shared time with friends.  

This sun dappled deck runs the full length of the top floor, and is intended to be the perfect place to enjoy a pleasant afternoon whether entertaining or just relaxing. 

If this home, or another home, is of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly at (510) 517-6280.  The residence is being offered for sale for $1,089,000.
