Steps from Oakland’s bustling Piedmont Avenue, 4523 Howe is a stunning 4+BD/3.5BA 3226 sq ft Modern Farmhouse with gorgeous, open views and a self-contained studio apartment with kitchenette and laundry. The home enjoys a free-flowing open floor plan with chef’s kitchen, luxurious primary suite, bonus rooms, hickory floors, vaulted ceilings, skylights, and a wall of Z-fold glass doors opening to a professionally-landscaped garden. Artfully remodeled, the home has been transformed from its original minimalist aesthetic into a welcoming space blending warm colors, designer wallpapers, modern light fixtures, and stylish mirrors. A panoply of luxurious custom upgrades include modern banquette seating, wine storage wall, built-ins, designer tile, and Roman shades. In addition, systemic upgrades include dual-zone central air conditioning and a solar power system.

An open living room, dining room, and expansive chef’s kitchen comprise the main level, and Z-fold glass doors open to create an indoor-outdoor flow that is the best of California living. Upstairs, the spacious primary suite is a marvelous retreat with a vaulted timber ceiling, wide windows with hillside views, and a spa-like split bath with skylights above an oversized tub and an open walk-in shower with rain shower head. Two additional bedrooms on this level share a generous bath, and a convenient laundry room eliminates the need for transporting laundry up and down stairs. From this level, a spiral staircase leads to the top of the home to a surprising pair of crow’s nest bonus rooms with peaked ceilings, skylights, and a distant view of the bay. With built-in cabinets and recessed lighting, these rooms might serve as an office, yoga studio, or children’s playroom. On the lowest level, another surprising feature awaits. A spacious in-law/au pair suite with a separate entrance is a perfect opportunity for a multigenerational household. The suite includes a full bath, kitchenette, laundry area, and access to a private patio.

While the home is just steps from Piedmont Avenue amenities it also sits adjacent to Oakland’s historic Mountain View Cemetary - an unexpected community gathering space where people walk, jog, run, and enjoy the spectacular views of the bay and its surrounding areas.
