Noted architect Charles Debbas has created this exquisite contemporary home with stunning views of the Bay Bridge, San Francisco and beyond. Truly magnificent and like no other, the genius of this home is the ongoing discovery that one experiences. As spectacular as it is on first viewing, the intrinsic beauty of this home reveals itself slowly. Subtle, yet complex, the spaces appear clear cut, yet the details are refined. There is more than meets the eye initially; the experience of discovery is exhilarating.
This home in the Oakland/Berkeley hills* above the Claremont Hotel and moments from shopping, restaurants and public transportation is sited on a lot that has a level out garden. The configuration includes an open floor plan on the primary level that encompasses the living and dining room, a media center, kitchen and half bath; there is easy access to a barbecue deck, a large entertaining deck that looks west to the views, and the exquisite front patio with fireplace that truly encourages the California lifestyle of indoor-outdoor living. There are four bedrooms and three and one-half baths, including a private master suite, and a family room that opens to the garden. The fourth bedroom, adjacent to the family room is perfect as a guest suite or office.
A descriptive cannot hint at the imagination and execution that sets this edifice apart from others. Forthright in its presentation, there are walls of glass; the custom designed doors and windows pivot effortlessly to open the home to the outdoors. The finishes are so refined. State of the art materials sheath the exterior; the relationship to the view begins in the garage with a broad window that immediately engages and prepares you for the excitement you are about to experience.
The brilliance of the design and the quality of construction is translated with an exquisite precision of craftsmanship and exceptional attention to detail that creates an environment that satisfies the senses. Truly a work of art!
