My Notes

SOPHISTICATED, MODERN & LIGHT w/ VIEWS, VIEWS, VIEWS! 3++ bedrooms/ 3 baths Dramatic spaces feature clean-line architectural elements: soaring ceilings; chic, oversize, barn-style doors; metal and wire railings, natural stone-tile accents, and walls of glass. The massive windows orient to HUGE VIEWS of the BAY, the hills, and downtown city skyline and flood the home with natural light. Indoor/outdoor living with effortless flow between patio & kitchen, out to view decks off dining room and off family room on lower level. This elegant home boasts views almost everywhere you turn: from the front entry hall, from the living and dining rooms, from two decks, from the office/den off the living room, from the master bedroom, from the au-pair den/family room, from the master bath window (and from inside the glass shower), from the rear yard, even coming down the interior stair from the 2-car garage! The modern, open-plan living and dining rooms share a handsome wood-burning fireplace and vaulted ceilings that create an airy, expansive feel-- the perfect setting for grand-scale entertaining. Chef's kitchen with skylights, high ceilings and french doors to patio, was recently reconfigured and updated with 6-burner Viking Stove, stainless hood, Kitchen-Aid fridge, Fisher-Paykel double-drawer dishwasher, wine fridge, built-in microwave drawer, hardwood floor, farmhouse-style sink, stone counters, glass tile back-splash and breakfast bar. Main level also offers a flexible bedroom suite with full bath (recently updated with stunning Carrera marble subway tiles and custom paint treatment), and a spacious office/den that can open to bedroom and living room and view, or close off from privacy behind giant, sliding barn-style doors. The master bedroom suite is another gem: enjoy the stunning fireplace, the sliders for maximum fresh air, the flat screen TV (included in sale) and abundant space for a king size bed (as pictured). The smart design of master bath (also recently updated with custom stone and glass tile shower surround) conveniently locates the sink vanity and dressing area steps away from the other bathroom functions. Beyond the master suite, the lower level also includes a family room, third bedroom, full bath, laundry room and storage room. Additionally, a private exterior staircase, separate entrance, and a kitchenette all enhance the versatility of these rooms for use as an in-law apartment or ideal au pair. This home's tranquil setting on a large lot in the Claremont Hills makes you feel miles away from it all. In fact, just a short zip down the hill you'll find bustling districts of Elmwood, Rockridge, and the Claremont, and easy access to Highway 13 & Montclair, the 24 & Caldecott Tunnel, to many bus lines and either Ashby or Rockridge BART. 

What I love about the home

I enjoy views over the Bay with a panorama of the changing sky from sunrise and sunset, with city lights at night!

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% lower than in Oakland, and 36.2% less than the national average.
