Perched at the top of Wilshire Boulevard in the Oakland Hills you immediately recognize that this is a special property. Past a sweet front yard, this one-level home is enchanting! The warm hardwood floors greet you upon entering. Down the entry hall to a bright living room with a gas fireplace and charming built-ins, stunning hardwood floors and recessed lighting. You are immediately drawn to the sliding glass door which opens to a spacious redwood deck with a gas fire pit and water feature. This will be the perfect place for entertaining friends and family; take in the peek-a-boo views while listening to the peaceful waterfall – truly magical!
Just off of the living room, the gourmet kitchen will be a delight to cook in. The Bertazzoni range with convection oven, stainless steel Samsung dishwasher, Kenmore refrigerator and ample cabinetry provide all the function and style any cook would need. The dining area adjoins the kitchen and can accommodate large dinner parties and holiday gatherings! Guests will roam between the kitchen, dining, living and outdoor areas effortlessly.
A few steps away from the kitchen you will find a spacious bonus room that can be used as a fourth bedroom or a family/media room - do not miss the large closet. Conveniently located in this room you will also find a full bathroom with tile floors, shower and a luxurious jetted tub. The possibilities of this space are endless! The laundry area off of the bonus room and kitchen will certainly come in handy.
Offering a very logical floorplan, at the front of the home you will find three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master suite boasts handsome hardwood floors and double paned windows. The fabulous master bathroom has a tile floor, shower with glass door enclosure and a low-flow toilet. The hardwood continues through the other two bedrooms and both bedrooms enjoy vistas of the lovely backyard and have partial views of the Bay, Oakland and Alameda. The hall bathroom has been gorgeously updated with tile floors, low-flow toilet and ceramic tile surround in the shower.
What about the outdoor space? Down some stairs from the deck is a flat backyard and a variety of fruit trees - Asian Persimmon, lemon, plum, nectarine, and peach just to name a few! Do not miss the wisteria or Pittosporum silver sheen. The raised beds will be perfect for the urban gardener and the natural gas from the home is also available for the BBQ enthusiast! The water feature empties into a sweet pond. Need additional space? A detached structure could be ideal as an artist space or will fulfill your storage needs.
