My Notes

First Time on the Market in 12 Years!Eclectic Elegance: A Berkeley Home on a Sunny Lot in MontclairOffered at $875,000Sitting atop the bay with panoramic views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate to one side and majestic tree tops to the other, this eclectic charmer has many stories to tell! Berkeley builder Jerry Boddum combined modern engineering and old world charm when designing this home in 1981 for his family. The home's warm and inviting character is rooted in the builder's "green" approach, using reclaimed wood and materials throughout. Beautiful redwood wainscoting, doors and trim, maple hardwood floors and unique accent windows create a rich, yet unpretentious sanctuary. Hidden Treasures:The large, custom, round window in the front of the house lets the sun shine into the atrium staircase and was created by Sausalito artist Rosalis. Reclaimed and beautifully refinished maple floors are in the home's entryway, living room, dining room and kitchen. Loft beds feature copper pipe as railing?so much fun for kids! Secluded decks off the master bedroom and dining room. And how about a floor-to-ceiling, built-in bookshelf with a moveable library ladder! Beautiful nooks and crannies give this house so much character.Versatile Floor Plan:The home?s floor plan makes perfect sense of the 2700 square feet. There are four bedrooms, a family room, living room, three full baths and two half baths distributed over three levels, providing possible separation of space?and yet all areas are beautifully connected with one another. A big plus, not included in the 2700 sq ft: The separate, bonus au pair or in-law suite has it's own entrance and can also be used as an office / entertainment room. The Front Yard is the Back Yard! Several patios and a grassy area under the birch tree invite you to play and relax in the beautifully landscaped terraces with native plants that attract hummingbirds and butterflies. The generously proportioned porch is the perfect outdoor dining room with stunning views of the entire bay. It's from here that you can shake off the hectic day, feeling removed from the world and yet you are only five quick minutes from the freeway and beautiful Montclair village. In Short: ? 4 bedrooms ? 3 full and 2 half baths ? built in 1981 ? living room with fireplace ? family room with fireplace ? bonus office or au pair with separate entrance ? artist/yoga cottage on top of garage ? large, very usable front yard ? decks, patios, lawn ? gorgeous views! ? modern engineering - home built 1981 ? old world charm through rich redwood details ? tree-house vibe in living room ? large, custom windows created by Sausalito artist ? accent windows throughout ? loft beds with copper pipes?fun for kids! ? spacious 2 car garage ? freshly painted ? not in designated landslide nor seismic hazard zone according to JCP report ? close to hiking and biking in Sibley, Redwood and Huckleberry parks ? close to the beautifully remodeled Hills Swim & Tennis club ? close to the Montclair Swim Club ? easy 5 minutes to Montclair village and freewayLive GreenNot only was this house built mainly with reclaimed wood and material, it also boasts many green features throughout, like dual pane windows and ideal exposure for a future home owner to install solar panels. Imagine all your hot water supply heated by the sun! The yard is planted mainly with low water native plants on a sprinkler/drip system. There are ideal locations for your raised vegetable beds and herb garden. And the little cottage on top of the garage invites you to unwind with a space for creating art or doing yoga. Need a workout? Walk from the house to one of the magic hiking paths like Huckleberry or Sibley park.Come, experience and enjoy this one of a kind property. To get there, It's a straight and easy, 5 minute shot from the Montclair village and/or Highway 13. Take Thornhill and Sobrante up. Sharp right on Oakwood, another left onto Glen Oaks Way and you are home!Sunday Open House is s 

What I love about the home

The rich redwood wainscoting is amazing! Views of the entire bay to one side and tree tops of majestic trees to the other. So much space with a versatile floor plan. Separate office / au-pair with it's own entrance.

Market guide

Zillow predicts Forestland home values will increase 2.2% next year, compared to a 8% increase for Oakland as a whole. Among Forestland homes, this home is valued 33.3% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 19.6% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Forestland, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 86.4% lower than in Oakland, and 86.7% less than the national average. This lower local number could help Forestland home values rise more quickly than other regions in Oakland.
