7237 Skyline Blvd Oakland, CA 94611
With riveting views of the bay and city skyline, a designer-quality interior and a peaceful setting nearby some of the best hiking/biking trails the Bay area has to offer, this refined architectural home is a great opportunity. Taking full advantage of its prime hillside location, the home offers a well-conceived plan that allows for a completely flat, level entry, multiple outdoor living areas with unobstructed views, and many of the bedrooms privately set away from each other. Large windows, multiple skylights and an open staircase allow sunlight to disperse throughout the interior, a showpiece of contemporary design that features clean lines, bamboo and tile floors, elegant modern fixtures, custom paint and window treatments. Two family rooms, both with fireplaces, add versatility to the floor plan: one has walls of windows showcasing the view; the larger one has vaulted ceilings and an adjacent view deck. In the kitchen, seamless, European-style cabinetry and granite counters create a timeless aesthetic. A built-in beverage station with a wine fridge, two sinks, a large center island and high-end appliances including a gas range add to the appeal. Vibrant paint tones accent the former breakfast room, currently in use as a TV room. Sliding doors access a covered and completely private outdoor dining room with custom accent lighting; a formal dining room with a wet bar allows for effortless entertaining, with views of the bay as a backdrop. The expansive master suite occupies its own level and functions as a personal sanctuary. Features such as a fireplace, a sauna, a massive soaking tub with a pebble stone entry, an oversized shower with multiple shower heads and a walk-in closet with built-in shelving are likely to make a day spa seem unpalatable and ensure the owner never wants to leave. Other highlights include a spacious rooftop deck with glass rails and panoramic area views, a laundry room with a sink, integrated surround sound, an attached two car garage, a commanding hillside location in a well-located neighborhood and a thoughtful design that is almost certain to make this distinctive turnkey home a collector-quality investment.
