Stylish and Modern

Exquisitely reimagined and redesigned to nurture comfortable and effortless living, a home that radiates quality, style and beauty does not emerge often. Picture-perfect and ready for seamless transition, this is an impeccable residence set among other large homes on large lots near beautiful hiking trails with wonderful views.

With direct access to a large private garden, this spacious four-bedroom, two and one-half bath home offers the ambiance of an idyllic retreat. An easy flow between indoors and outdoors, whether for everyday living or entertaining, there is space enough for all activities —  socially distanced or closely gathered.  As lifestyles are ever evolving, this home will offer happiness and stability to its occupants.  

From the striking façade of the colonial revival exterior, one enters the modern and stylish foyer of this delightful home. The floor plan is smart and functional. On the primary level, the large light-filled living room has a gracious fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows and hardwood floors that carry through to the equally bright dining room, with wainscoted-detailed walls and a bay window. Conveniently located on this level is the laundry room and a half bath. The expansive kitchen and family room make up the heart of the home; this “great room” opens directly onto the special garden.  

The upper level has four bedrooms and two baths. The primary bedroom, en-suite, has plenty of room for wardrobe and has beautiful finishes in the bath.  The second bath on this level is also handsomely modernized. 

With several direct access points to the outdoors, this home also boasts a patio, perfect for taking evening meals, and a lawn for play. One can spend carefree days in this expansive level garden seated under the pergola and socializing around the outdoor fireplace. 

An inviting neighborhood, Sequoyah Hills is in close proximity to trails with panoramic views of the Bay, and other outdoor adventures. With easy access to UC Berkeley, downtown Oakland, the Bay Bridge and the South Bay, this bucolic, tranquil environment is a wonderful place to call home. And the new Oak Knoll development in the works just minutes down the road will bring shopping convenience to the area.

Oak Knoll Community Plan

From access to the East Bay Regional Park System to integrated community focused trails, Oak Knoll will provide its residents and the public with walkable trails that will flank a revived creek, and will welcome families, runners, cyclists, hikers, dog walkers and naturalists. With the community situated in Oakland's southern foothills, abundant pathways and open space will connect family-oriented neighborhoods enclaves with a community focused life-style center including amenities such as shops, restaurants and public meeting spaces. . .With the development of 918 new homes surrounded by parks and open space, the planning and design of Oak Knoll draws its inspiration from the surrounding high quality residential communities designed by renowned historic figures such as Julia Morgan, Bernard Maybeck, Walter Ratcliff, Frederick Law Olmsted and the partnership of Mason McDuffie. . . By blending history with innovation Oak Knoll will provide a unique setting for the growth of livable, sustainable and attractive neighborhoods.”* *As stated in the Oak Knoll Community Plan website:*

Oakland~Sequoyah Hills

There are several access points to this wonderful Sequoyah Hills neighborhood -either I 580 to Keller Avenue and then to Hansom or via CA 13 to Redwood Road and the lovely Skyline Blvd to Hansom.  This neighborhood is in close proximity to hiking trails and is certainly likely to benefit even more from the upcoming Oak Knoll Community Development plan.  A video is included in this website of what is to come. 

The Redwood Heights Recreation Center is not far  and is used by locals of all ages for weekend gatherings and classes including dance, cooking, and karate. Peralta Creek's 9 acres of creekside have been designated as wildlife corridor. A neighborhood nonprofit Native Environment Watershed Transformation (NEWT) orchestrated the Peralta Creek restoration and leads creek field trips for local school groups. Redwood Regional Park offers nearly 40 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails through 1,380 acres of redwood, evergreen, and chaparral forests and open space.
