With panoramic views of San Francisco Bay and multiple private level yard areas, this exquisitely imagined and renovated Mid-Century 5BR/3BA home rests on almost 1/2 acre, gorgeously situated and enhanced to take full advantage of its sublime setting. The 3048 SQFT home (with an additional 617 SQ FT of bonus space) has been renovated down to the studs and offers a large and uniquely flexible compound, ample space for work from home and creativity, a potential ADU, a light-filled detached 2-car garage, custom landscaping, and the potential for additional development of its massive lot. The house is rich with artisan woodwork, custom cabinetry, new engineered white oak wood flooring, and modern Douglas fir paneling–with a nod to Mondrian and the Finish styles of the mid 20th Century. 
The sunny living area enjoys a period fireplace and openly flows from reception to dining, living, and kitchen, all with stunning views of iconic bridges and city skylines. The formal dining area features a Modernmaine artisan chandelier complemented by hand milled walnut countertops.

A wrap-around porch with custom lighting and sliding doors create seamless indoor/outdoor living onto multiple patios, mature gardens, and level lawn areas for play, contemplation, outdoor movies and dining. Two bedrooms and a bath are upstairs. Downstairs holds two more bedrooms, two full baths, and living area with fireplace, plus a giant multi-use space for laundry, storage, work, and play. A two-room primary suite retreat with separate entrance has ADU potential with its exquisitely renovated bathroom with custom tilework and heated floors, a bedroom with picture window view of the bay, and direct access to a private zen garden and deck seating area.

Throughout the home you will find hand-selected finishes including Zia Tile, RBW Lighting, an imported 1970s Scandinavian fixture from Europe, and new metal roof. Gently hike your own property as the expansive lot extends down to the street below and ample off-street parking (as many as five cars in the driveway) leads to the two-car garage at the front. This home is a private paradise atop the Oakland Hills with the wonderful conveniences of Montclair Village, sought-after public and private schools, and miles of regional parks a few blocks away.
