This Claremont Hills jewel offers the rare combination of an idyllic setting just minutes from the vibrancy of world-class cities. The 4,783-square-foot home spans four levels and looks down on Berkeley from its hillside perch. You won’t want to leave the huge family room area, resting under a vaulted ceiling more than 20 feet high. If you do, it will be to use the adjoining French doors to enjoy the spacious outdoor deck with commanding views to the sun-swept south and west. The main house comprises 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, including an elegant master suite, with lofted ceilings and skylights throughout. The kitchen has been updated with high end appliances. A breakfast nook adjoins the kitchen and the dining room. The adjoining studio apartment is an additional 669 square feet and has its own full bathroom and kitchenette. A personal elevator originates at the two-car garage at street level, descending to serve both the main house and the studio.
