Step up to luxury with this sumptuous architectural stunner. Elegant garden edged stairs carry you up to a world of splendor and comfort, with state of the art details, graceful design, and dramatic views from every window.
Custom built by Andrade Architects, the Asian-inspired gardens leading up to the entry set the scene of serenity and privacy. The front door opens onto a design-forward grand wood staircase surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows. A step-down living room sits before a wall of windows filled with views of the bay and city lights in the near distance. Soaring ceilings, a dramatic layout and architectural details provide a modern aesthetic. An elevated view balcony is the ideal place to decompress after a long day.
A two-sided fireplace is shared with the adjacent dining room, which opens out onto the immense back yard through a bank of glass doors and windows. The kitchen leads to a family room, which leads to the outside, in an effortless flow, ideal for entertaining. A huge walk-in pantry, built-in desk, skylights and studio windows and a convenient laundry nearby make this well-equipped space the heart of the home.
On this level lies the master suite, with an additional bedroom close at hand, ideal for an office or nursery. The master bedroom has two walls of grand views. Separated by a shoji screen, the en suite bathroom is a tour-de-force of marble, glass blocks, light and tile, a modern Japanese-style spa with every amenity, including a deluxe custom dressing room/walk-in closet.
Downstairs features a central family room, and another huge space useful for a music room, art studio, office space or home gym - whatever the purpose, it is made exceptional by the looming views. Ample storage, two bedrooms and a shared bath anchor this end of the house, with a guest suite on the other end, with its own full bath, walk-in closet, balcony and yard access.
The yard is level out and has sophisticated landscaping, decks for eating and entertaining, as well as a swing in an oak tree, a playhouse and lots of lawn in two level play areas.
Located equidistant to Montclair Village and Rockridge, the neighborhood offers fantastic dining, shopping and recreation, with easy access to the freeway for commuting or excursions.
This is a home with many architectural strengths and poetic vistas in every direction. Custom-designed to meet the needs of the family, it is an ideal space to come together, as well as to retreat a bit from the world, while watching the city lights sparkle from every window.
