Sold $1,389,000 SOLD (List Price $1,389,000) - Single Family Home
A total renovation with modern interior, 4179 Maple is a lovely 3BD/4BA in the Upper Dimond neighborhood of Oakland. The open floorplan, oversized windows, and vaulted ceiling create a bright, expansive great room ideal for modern living and entertaining. The home features spacious rooms, an updated chef’s kitchen, and a luxurious owner’s suite and two additional bedrooms on one level – each with its own bath. On the lower level is a large family room with a separate entrance and the potential to become a guest/au pair suite. The enclosed backyard is a quiet retreat perfect for outdoor entertaining with its patio, lawn, fruit trees, and play structure; while the side yard is an urban farm of raised garden beds planted with fruits, vegetables, and an herb garden – all watered by an energy-efficient rain-catching system.
The dramatic vaulted ceilings, tall windows, and modern European engineered hardwood floors create a sense of light and serenity in the spacious living room that extends into the open dining room.
Sunlight streams through a wide bay window into the lavishly updated eat-in chef’s kitchen. A stunning Brazilian Palisandro marble island with breakfast bar takes center stage under the glow of distinctive pendant lights, and an expanse of stone countertops with subway tile backsplash provide abundant space for meal prep. Stylish Shenandoah cabinets provide plentiful storage, and a 6-burner NXR Professional gas range and chimney-style hood make cooking a joy. At one end of the kitchen, a door opens onto the spacious patio – perfect for taking trays of hors d‘oeuvres out to waiting guests.
Upstairs are three bedrooms on one level, one an inviting owner’s suite featuring a large walk-in closet and a wall of windows overlooking the lush backyard. The adjoining bath boasts dual vanities and a spa-like Serenity Shower enclosure with two rain showerheads and an intriguingly patterned tile floor.
The remaining two bedrooms each feature large closets, over-sized windows, and private full baths. In the hallway, outside the bedrooms is an elevated reading nook, or – with a little imagination – possibly the site of a rainy-day fort. Also on this level is a conveniently placed laundry closet, eliminating the need to carry laundry up and down the stairs.
On the lower level is an expansive bonus space that could serve as a family or rec room. With a full bath just outside and a private entrance to the front of the house, it is also well-suited for use as an au pair or guest suite.
The huge, level-out enclosed backyard has something for everyone. The expansive paved patio is an entertainer’s dream with plenty of room for a neighborhood party or casual barbeque. Nearby, a children’s play structure is a treat for the little ones, and a lush lawn is shaded by a blooming apple and lemon trees. Whispering eucalyptus trees along the fence provide privacy, and when everyone goes home this is the perfect place to put your feet up and watch the stars come out.
In the side yard is a feast for the eyes and for the kitchen: an urban farm of garden beds is planted with a medley of fruits and vegetables including tomatoes, melons, cucumbers, eggplant, peas, as well as an herb garden – all watered with by a rain-catching system with enough storage to last the entire growing season.
