A contractor built this home to exacting standards for his own use. The neighborhood is amply removed from traffic for privacy, and yet with nearby freeway access. Enter into a hallway under a soaring ceiling. The living room welcomes guests through a graceful arch. Proceed to the elegant dining room adjacent, subtly illuminated by chandelier. The kitchen offers custom cabinetry, spacious counters and sinks, and top appliances. The family room is an entertainment hub, with a spectacular fireplace. A spacious office sits adjacent. Downstairs, a wine cellar/tasting room provide another entertainment venue. A staircase ascends from the entry hall to three bedrooms above. The principal suite offers Bay and Bridge views; peaked ceilings; fireplace; and an en-suite bathroom with vanity, spacious shower, and Jacuzzi. Further upstairs is a fourth bedroom with ample storage. The floors use exquisite hardwoods throughout. This is an exceptional home in the most-exceptional part of Oakland.
