GOLD COAST MASTERPIECE WITH OVER HALF AN ACRE AND POOL – AN ENTERTAINER’S PARADISE NEAR SAN FRANCISCO
1208 Saint Charles is a landmark East Bay property located at the end of a tree-lined cul-de-sac in the heart of the Gold Coast; a unique opportunity to own over half an acre of grounds that include multiple parcels, large pool and pool house/cabana (with outdoor kitchen, bathroom — all equally shared by four homes), bocce ball court, sprawling lawns, fruit trees, old growth redwoods, majestic oaks, fountains, dog run, and detached 2-car garage. With its tremendous indoor/outdoor flow, it is the ultimate in Northern California living.
The interior features an expansive and gracious floor plan, grand formal rooms, a modern and open kitchen/family room, large wine cellar, bonus rooms, patios, balcony, decking, and four equally distinguished bedrooms on one level all enjoying unique and magical bonus areas.
The master suite (with fireplace and private balcony overlooking the grounds) is a series of rooms including a bathing area with marble finishes, generous walk-in closet, home office/exercise room with walls of windows. Two other bedrooms enjoy separate and spacious lofts and the fourth bedroom features a magical play area tucked away through a “secret passage”.
The property also boasts elegant architectural details including grand staircase, three fireplaces, distinguished collections of multi-light windows and period lighting fixtures, hardwood floors, wainscoting, moldings, coved and box-beamed ceilings, powder room, enclosed porch, and a modern, island kitchen with ample cabinetry, built-ins, book shelves, pantry, work space, bar, window seat, and a wonderful collection of professional grade appliances and finishes to inspire any gourmand.
1208 Saint Charles is not just a home, it is living history; a property that holds a place in the hearts and minds of Alamedans, past and present. It is a refuge and a feast for the senses; a rich and inspiring backdrop for an extraordinary life.
