Property description

Large 4 bedroom, 3 full bath single family home located off a private road and on a one acre lot in the Oakland Hills! Idyllic and rustic surroundings with trees, lush vegetations, roaming deers and wild turkeys, as well as singing birds; yet with easy access to major highway (less than 3 miles off highway I-580) and vibrant city lives of downtown San Francisco, downtown Oakland or Berkeley nearby. Also ideal for hikers/bikers and nature lovers with numerous walking/biking trails in large public parks within walking distance (about 1 mile to Joseph Knowland State Arboretum & Park and Anthony Chabot Regional Park). For animal lovers, the house is only 2.5 miles to the Oakland Zoo. Besides the beaches throughout the San Francisco Bay and the famous Lake Merritt in central Oakland, for people who love water, a large beautiful lake (Lake Chabot) is just next door about 5 miles away in the hills. Lake Chabot offers boating, kayaking, canoeing, fishing and is surrounded by a more than 10 mile long hiking trail with scenic views and frequent sightings of pelicans, gulls, geese, ducks and other waterbirds.

The home was built in 1990 and completely updated throughout by the current owners in 2013. Features hardwood floors throughout, and travertine tiles in kitchen and bathrooms. Total living area approximately 2,400 square feet.

Upstairs (entry level) features kitchen, casual dining area, family room, formal dining room, living room with cathedral ceiling and baby grand piano. One bedroom with a queen bed and one full bathroom. Kitchen features new cherry cabinets, granite counter tops, copper sink and high end GE appliances including an induction stove.

Downstairs features a master suite with king bed and private full bathroom, one bedroom with a queen bed and one bedroom with a full bed sharing a full bathroom, and a laundry room. All bed sheets are of high quality with at least 400 thread count.

There is a 46 inch TV in the family room with Dish satellite TV and Netflix as well as a Blueray player. Two bedrooms including the master bedroom have 32 inch TVs with Netflix and Blueray players. A third bedroom also has a 24 inch TV with Netflix and a DVD player.

There is a large back balcony with access through both the family and living rooms, which has lounge chairs, a dining set and Weber grill. As the back of the house looks out on eucalyptus trees, the back balcony is completely private.

There is also a sizable semi-private front deck, which is gated and partially blocked by plum trees from the private road on which the house is located. The front deck has a pair of reclining loung chairs and is decorated by beautiful potted plants.

Spacious designated off-street parking area for two cars is available beside the driveway - garage is not accessible to guests.

Owners sometimes stay in a separate quarter of the house.

Conveniently centrally located in the San Francisco East Bay Area near the San Leandro BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station. 25 to 30 minutes by BART or car to downtown San Francisco, 15 minutes by BART or car to downtown Oakland, 20 to 25 minutes by BART or car to Berkeley, and 30 minutes by car to Palo Alto and Silicon Valley. One hour by car to Napa/Wine Country, Mount Tamalpais and Muir Woods. 15 minutes by car to Oakland Airport and 45 minutes by car to San Francisco Airport.
