Rarely does such a special property become available in Oakland’s Glen Highlands Neighborhood. An Architecturally designed modern beauty that stands above all of the rest. Glen Highlands, part of Northern Montclair, is largely considered to be one of Oakland’s “crown-jewel” areas. Supremely located just 1.6 miles to the Montclair Village, 3.6 miles to the Rockridge District and only 2.6 miles to Berkeley’s famed Elmwood area, you’ll enjoy an elegant living lifestyle situated in close proximity to all of the places that you’d like to go.
Pleasantly set back from a quiet and serene section of Mountain Blvd. Its clean and gracefully contemporary roof lines are above and the verdant greenery of the masterfully designed garden and grounds set the tone from below. From bottom to top the home captures your eyes and heart. The lacy branches of a mature olive tree accent the warmth and color of the producing citrus tree. You’re greeted by the Saltillo-tiled stairs, walkway and entrance patio, a sunny outdoor space that is level-out from the dining rooms' dual French doors and offers a seamless indoor/outdoor entertaining environment. Dine alfresco or just enjoy the sun's warmth with a glass of wine. Of the many lovely attributes of this home… your time spent in the outdoor spaces is time VERY well spent.
You enter the home under high ceilings and are greeted by a spacious Living room with gas-burning fireplace. The main level of the home perfectly blends space, utility and style. Built-in cabinetry, in-wall step shelving and subtle accents of designer colors sooth yet offer just enough flair to captivate the spirit. There is a private hall bath and guest bedroom at one end, and a formal Dining room at the other.
The heart of the home is in the Chef’s quality kitchen that gracefully opens to a vaulted ceiling family room and breakfast nook. Stone counters, light filled windows and custom lighting all work to create a luxurious cooking area as well as comfortable entertaining space. The rear, level-out grassy garden and brick patio areas provide the perfect place to BBQ, relax under the faint scent of flowers, listen to the birds while reading a book or just spend time with friends and share a special time. Only by seeing for yourself will you truly be able to appreciate the beauty of the quality of these verdant outdoor spaces.
The lower level offers a bonus-room perfect for a private office, yoga room, gym or home theater. Interior access is had from the oversized 2 car garage that also has a spacious nook area that’s perfectly used as a workshop, gear area or just a massive storage space.
A wide staircase leads you up to the main living level with 3 full bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The Primary Bedroom, a luxurious on-suite bedroom with a very spacious walk-in closet is perched forward and with a south/westerly orientation it is light and bright and providing beautiful North Bay outlooks. The rooms spa-like bathroom has a freestanding soaking tub, multiple brass fixture details and beautifully accented custom tile shower.
The home's many thoughtful yet sophisticated details and features blend together seamlessly. Some are readily apparent to the eye while others rest below the surface. What will not go unnoticed is the warmth, spaciousness, and the embracement of modern design set next to a backdrop of extraordinary natural outdoor elements. The overall care and quality that has gone into this home is exemplary.
