My Notes

Elaborate dimensions, polished design facets, and extraordinary panoramic Bay and cityscape views distinguish this 2006 contemporary. Three floors of airy living space radiate with state-of-the-art components. Designed with ultra-current lifestyle comforts, conveniences, and splendor in mind, it combines a great-room style kitchen with professional-caliber appliances, public spaces graciously open to one another and to sweeping-view-saturated terraces, a home theater, and five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, including an elaborate retreat-like master suite.Nestled in the glorious, green hills of Berkeley at an exalted elevation, the location affords an epic aerial perspective. Yet it remains remarkably accessible. Just moments wending down quiet, gently curving streets populated with mature greenery and distinctive architecture yields public transportation, shopping, entertainment, and dining in nearby neighborhoods, and the renowned Claremont Hotel Club & Spa. Cultivating privacy, the fa ade lies behind an enclosure of suede-like stucco and painted wood, concealing the front courtyard. Hinting at an abundant garden within, a lush spray of sago palm fronds protrudes over the enclosure. The inviting, angular space reveals terraced plant beds and a slate patio in an array of sophisticated sand tones. With access to the kitchen via glass doors, it offers outdoor dining and entertaining options. The front entrance, also accessible from the courtyard, establishes rectilinear focal points that are reiterated to fine effect throughout the interior. The interior entryway conveys a stylized contemporary aesthetic that pervades the home. Expressing it, a cohesive composition of attributes, such as cherry-hued wood flooring, super-tall cinnamon-tone doors inset with geometric detailing and adorned with gleaming, angular hardware, unifies interior spaces. Also throughout: ceilings soar, opulent nature-inspired elements, such as natural-stone slabs and tiles, grace surfaces, and oversized picture windows put views on permanent display, all creating dramatic connection with the outdoors.A triad of doors occupies the fore of the front hall. A powder room sets an elegantly modern tone. It showcases an iridescent glass sink radiating from a contoured stone counter. A closet offers utility. And a bedroom enjoys a separation of space from other quarters and offers exterior access, lending itself well to in-law/au pair possibilities. Within it, a full bathroom displays signature elements consistent in bathrooms throughout the home, such as natural-stone flooring, an expansive natural stone slab countertop above sleek cherry-hued cabinetry adorned with geometric hardware. A combined bathtub and shower displays sand-toned stone tile accented intermittently with small geometric mosaics of textured stone and brushed metal tiles. As the front hall unfurls, another closet offers walk-in coat storage. Adjacent, a wide, floating staircase ascends and descends dramatically. Lustrous wooden handrails top brushed-metal balusters in a bold configuration. Both the upper and lower landings are bathed in light from substantial windows that correspond to the broad spaces. Straight ahead, the dining and living rooms comprise a multi-space framework, open visually to one another, with breathtaking views as the backdrop. The dining room, framed by a swath of counter-height cabinetry, provides sleek, perfectly placed storage for serving pieces. Conveying a lofty effect, the living room sits two steps below and features a tall, tented ceiling above. Flanked by two large-scale windows, a fireplace with natural stone and brushed-metal surround adds contemporary flare. Windows are equipped with electric window coverings, operated via remote control. The open kitchen-family room also presents a conjoined space filled with extravagant views and a plethora of function. Within the kitchen, a massive, ultra-equipped island is widely surrounded by an array of professiona  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts Claremont home values will increase 3.8% next year, compared to a 8% increase for Oakland as a whole. Among Claremont homes, this home is valued 86.7% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 15% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Claremont, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 35% less than in Oakland, and 36.2% less than the national average. This lower local number could help Claremont home values rise more quickly than other regions in Oakland.
