An unicorn of a home, this exquisite 5BD/4BA Oakland Hills compound generates a sense of awe the minute you enter its gates and take in the wondrous, sprawling double lot with 5-bridge views, 6000 square feet of decking, bridges, exotic landscaping, treehouse, slide, and gorgeous in-ground PebbleTec pool with waterfall. As you enter the home, you will immediately be gobsmacked by a two-story wall of windows giving you an immersive view of the bay and SF, enhanced by the eucalyptus-stained timber construction that gives the home a feeling of living among the trees. With 4588 square feet, 3235 Brunell brings out the child in everyone who enters with its trove of treasures including a trapdoor wine cellar, rooftop widow’s walk, kid’s playroom, indoor elevator, built-in ladders, and laundry chute, to name a few. The primary suite features a walk-in closet and renovated split bath with dual sinks, shower, and a standing soaking tub in its own turret with skylight, encircled by views of the bay. Other levels offer a sun-washed secondary bedroom wing with its own family room area, additional baths, bonus rooms, and au pair quarters with full bath and private entrance. The spacious kitchen contains 2 chef’s islands (with breakfast bar and extra stainless-steel sink), large pantry, old-fashioned wood burning stove, and bi-fold laundry closet. The elegant formal dining room contains an Artcraft chandelier, barn-style pocket door leading to the indoor jacuzzi(!) and sauna, and sliding door access to the decks. There is also a light-filled spacious two-car garage, additional storage and ample, dedicated off-street parking for multiple vehicles, visiting guests, or easy delivery access. The home is close to Joaquin Miller Park, Woodminster/Montclair shops, and highways.
