Features

After over 55 years of embracing one family this property is ready for a new owner. Built in 1957, this sleek mid-century home is entirely level and hosts six bedrooms and four bathrooms in approximately 3300 sq ft. Situated on one acre with views of the bay, this is a dramatic showcase in a unique setting, with soaring ceilings, crisp angles, and wide views.

Beautifully finished hardwood floors and restored original quarry tiles span much of the interior.

A broad foyer opens to the living room with vaulted ceiling and gleaming redwood paneling.  Sliding glass doors lead out to a wrap-around deck. Step down to a broad patio and wide flat backyard.  Garden steps lead to the orchard below.

Through the glass breezeway flanked by open atria to the family room, enjoy massive views. Mid-century lines, including cinderblock detail, a floating hearth, and built-in storage make this an exciting entertaining space

The kitchen is appointed with quartz counters and gleaming stainless appliances.  The adjacent "nook" is ideal as a light office space, pantry or breakfast room. Clerestory windows and front garden outlooks add vibrancy and warmth.

The very private master retreat also enjoys the light from clerestory windows and vaulted ceiling. A built-in headboard, dual closets with built-in dressers, a deep closet with telescoping valet rod, two office nooks, a double sink, and a dressing table are among the amenities. The master bathroom hosts a walk-in shower and divine sunken tub.

A guest room sits adjacent to the family area with a private bathroom. Close by is the utility room, from which exterior access makes this an ideal spot for visitors keeping separate hours.

Below the deck is an orchard ready for the urban gardener or aspirational wine-grower. Along the side of the house is a large patio with terraced planting beds.

With a polymer floor coating, the two-car garage feels like a showroom, with a built-in workbench and ample lighting. A third parking pad sits astride the garage, with a tool shed in front of it.

Neighborhood


Hillcrest Estates

The Hillcrest Estates neighborhood is small in footprint and population, encompassing nearly one square mile with approximately 250 homes, but its perch on top of the Oakland Hills and surrounding green space make for unparalleled vistas and ample opportunity for recreation. Bordered by the Leona Canyon Regional Open Space and Anthony Chabot Regional Park, the neighborhood was formerly rancho land and ultimately developed in three sub-divisions throughout the 1950's.  The primary architectural characteristics in the area are large, mostly level ranch-style homes, with minimum one-acre lot sizes.  Broad, dramatic views are common - both of San Francisco Bay and also of the Contra Costa Hills and park spaces.

A wealth of parks and trails are near at hand for picnicking, hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking. Joaquin Miller Park, Redwood Regional Park, and Anthony Chabot Regional Park are replete with picturesque landscapes and challenging walks. Venture out of the neighborhood and you’ll enter the larger environs of Montclair, with its shops and restaurants and its close proximity to commuting options — including the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), casual carpool, and AC Transit bus lines.  For Hillcrest Estates residents, BART can be conveniently accessed at Rockridge, Fruitvale, Oakland Coliseum, and San Leandro stations.
