DESCRIPTION:

Secluded on over a quarter acre lot, this 1930's home has been renovated and updated in keeping with its clean lines and relaxed setting. Over the last fourteen years, the owner has meticulously maintained the home to make it the comfortable place it is. Most evident is the lush, mature landscaping upon coming through the entry gate and up the wide steps. The ivy-covered slope immediately behind the house conveys a coolness and quietness as the trees overhead sway in the breezes. Up the terraced hill above the house is a large, level space suitable for all sorts of games and activities, all with a view of the Bay to the west.

Upon entering, the charm of the box beam ceilings with tongue and groove paneling and fireplace in the living is apparent. Gleaming hardwood floors further enhance the warmth. The efficient U-shaped granite chef's kitchen opens to the adjoining family room with barstools and informal entertaining. Conveniently, there is a half bath and door to the side patio off the family room.

Among the other qualities of the home are the large closets in both bedrooms. Dual pane windows throughout further add to the comfort and livability as does the granite and tiled full bath with an expansive walk in glass-walled shower. Adjacent to it is the bonus laundry room with built in desk and cabinets - perfect for a home office. Out the west end of the house is the large, covered raised deck with concrete patio beyond and mature rose garden. Truly, an outdoor space to be explored and enjoyed - perfect for the gardener or one inclined to lounge about. Private, peaceful, and nestled in the lush landscape of trees, hedges, and flora of all kinds.

Located in the Oakland Hills above 580 and tucked into the side of the hill, this home is very conveniently located to freeways, BART, and Transbay Express bus route. Just up the hill via Keller is the Oakland Equestrian Center while further down Skyline Boulevard is Joaquin Miller Park and Redwood Regional Park - all excellent for hiking and cycling.
