Breathtaking panorama from the Golden Gate to glittering SF cityscape, to Bay Bridge and Oakland's downtown skyline.
Dramatic soaring ceilings are emphasized by a graceful statement-making stairway. Plentiful windows reach to the second story mezzanine, capturing views and captivating the viewer.
An open floor plan invites living that flows from living to dining areas, and extends outdoors to the broad deck which spans the width of the home.
The eat-in kitchen offers marble finishes, with nearby half-bath for guests.
Sleek wood balusters lend a modern air as you ascend the staircase, opening to a large den or gathering space at the upper level. A spacious primary suite with luxe bath claims views at one end, and a second bedroom enjoys views of both bay and wooded canopy.
Downstairs is a massive three-car garage with laundry facility and a second half-bath.
Conveniently located above the Claremont Resort and Domingo shops, with a public stair for a leisurely weekend stroll, and easy transit access.
The Claremont neighborhood straddles the Berkeley and Oakland borders and features lush landscaping, curving streets that hug the canyon hills, and open space. Homes on the leafy side streets provide old-fashioned Berkeley elegance, with turn-of-the-century brown shingles, revivals, prairie, custom contemporary, and Tudor-styled structures offering residents a verdant home within the landscaped confines.
The local landmark is the majestic Claremont Hotel Club & Spa, a vast Victorian edifice perched on 22 acres in the hills. Three outdoor pools, ten tennis courts, a full-service spa, a fitness club, and three onsite restaurants deliver stunning views, and the resort has become popular with generations of locals as a luxurious getaway.
Just below the lower entry to the Claremont Hotel are several cozy storefronts on Domingo Avenue, including Fournee Bakery, Peet's Coffee, and acclaimed restaurant Rick and Ann's.
Elmwood's shopping district on College Avenue in Berkeley offers small shops with maker goods, access to Rockridge BART, grocery stores, bookshops, and flower stands. Restaurants, a movies theater, and a bakery are all nearby.
The Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve is 208 acres of open space managed by the East Bay Regional Park District and includes more than 200 acres outside of the canyon owned by the University of California, Berkeley.
Garber Park, a 13-acre oak-and-bay-tree woodland south of Claremont Avenue, is owned by the city of Oakland. Trails reward ambitious hikers with panoramic views of San Francisco Bay.
