Striking Contemporary Meticulously Maintained
Built in 2003, this is one of those hard to find newer homes with all the benefits of recent construction. Impeccably kept, almost zero pest report, squeaky clean home inspection, and sewer lateral in compliance. Because of its unique location near the Oakland/Berkeley border this home enjoys a Berkeley Postal address and Oakland services and feeds into top ranked Oakland Technical High School.
The pristine interior includes three spacious bedrooms and three well-appointed bathrooms on the upper level. Skylights in master bath and hall. Lovely living room with fireplace and formal dining room on the main level, sparkling gourmet kitchen with dual oven, gas cooktop, French door refrigerator and adjoining family room open onto the deck, more than large enough to allow for outdoor dining and extreme social distancing.
Some additional features include Central Air Conditioning, wifi ready thermostat, laundry with washer and dryer, small sauna and multipurpose room, recessed lighting throughout.
Low maintenance outdoor living, a huge tile deck looks out over green vistas. Several small planting areas but primarily with little need for upkeep and allows outdoor living at its easiest. Quiet, serene but with quick and easy access to Rockridge and Elmwood shops, numerous dining options and every kind of transportation. AC transit, BART, Highways 13 and 24 and all this just 12 miles to San Francisco. Two car garage plus storage space with interior 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 place to call home within the landscaped confines. The landmark of this area is the majestic Claremont Hotel Club & Spa, a vast Victorian edifice perched on 22 acres in the hills. Three outdoor pools, 10 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. Elmwood's shopping district on College Avenue in Berkeley offers old-fashioned shops, access to the Rockridge Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), grocery stores, bookshops, and flower stands. Restaurants, a movies theater, and a bakery are all a short walk away. The Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve is 208 acres of open space managed by the East Bay Regional Park District and 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.
