Designed after the Frank Lloyd Wright prairie houses.
Welcome to special place that is truly the best of both worlds, a personal sanctuary just a short drive from the vibrancy of city life and easy access to some of the most iconic regional parks the Bay area has to offer. Located at the crest of the East Bay Hills with splendid views of the Bay, this stunning six bedroom three and a half bath home was inspired by the iconic prairie designs of Frank Lloyd Wright and was created to take maximum advantage of its precise location and natural outlooks. The formal entry has an immediate sense of elegance in the level of design and finish. High lofty ceilings lend a sense of volume and echo the inspiration of well-crafted spaces. To the right of the entry you have the more formal part of the home: a dining room, living room and kitchen with a perfect flow for entertaining. The living room has a wall of windows, a central granite fireplace and lovely Bay views. Immediately adjacent is the large formal dining room.
 The thoughtful separation of space makes it feel intimate and at the same time part of this entire level. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with an enormous center island that helps define it from the informal eating nook with integrated workspace. There is also convenient access to the back deck with views to the parkland beyond. The kitchen overlooks the family room that steps down a few stairs. A floor-to-ceiling stacked stone fireplace is a centerpiece of the room and there is access to another deck that looks out on the canyon. It’s not unusual here to see hawks flying by at eye level.
To the left of the entry is the wing of the house that contains five bedrooms. Each of the four guest bedrooms is well proportioned and shares an updated bath with a dual sink vanity. Finally secluded at the far end of the house is the master suite. The master bedroom is expansive with a sliding glass door to it’s own deck. The master bath is luxuriously appointed with its deep soaking tub, dual vanities and separate shower all clad in natural stone tile. Downstairs is a special bonus: a sixth bedroom or flex space with full bath and direct access to the garden.
The neighborhood of Skyline-Hillcrest Estates has both a wide-open feel and a sense of seclusion yet is only minutes from the restaurants, boutiques, cafes and the farmers’ markets of Montclair and downtown Oakland. If you love the outdoors, then you will love living here: the incomparable East Bay Regional Parks are at your doorstep with miles of trails, bike paths and equestrian centers that are perfect for every form of recreation. Close proximity to Highways 580 and 13 makes commuting a breeze.
