4878 Harbord Dr. Oakland CA Rockridge District

October 18th, 2009

This 1950’s Contemporary nestled on a gentle upslope in Upper Rockridge is centrally located between the College Avenue shopping area and the Montclair Village. 

Entering through the front door you are greeted by an open floor plan and a sun filled atmosphere.  Several large picture windows adorn the west side of the home and offer outlooks of green hillsides and the San Francisco North Bay.  The afternoon light is abundant and the evening sunsets over the North Bay hills are beautiful and dramatic. The exposed stained wood beams and plank ceilings contrast and complement the clean contemporary lines of the home.  Adjoining the open dining room is a large eat-in kitchen with access to a wrap around rear yard/patio set entirely with natural stone.  Two of the downstairs bedrooms also integrate indoor/outdoor living by use of their large sliding glass doors that open to the rear patio area.

All exterior spaces are functional, accessible and perfect for entertaining.  Upstairs offers a large master suite with a full bath, walk in closet and a plus-room that’s perfect for a home office, TV room or nursery.  Step right out the sliding door and take in the fresh air from a large sunny roof top deck that offers privacy and lovely views of the North Bay.
