Private Retreat 3+ Be / 2 Ba Updated Home, WALK to HikingTrails / Pool + 20 mins to UC Berkeley

This 3+ bd / 2 ba private retreat (plus loft) sits in a coveted location at the top of the Oakland hills w/ views of Mt. Diablo + City / SF Bay. Watch the sunrise over Mt. Diablo from the front, and watch the sunset from the back.

Privacy and quiet in spades. 3 entertainment decks, fully renovated custom kitchen, hardwood floors, freshly painted, huge windows, 5 skylights.

Superb location: Across the street from hiking trails into 2,000 acres of regional parks, plus steps from heated pools, gym, sauna, yoga, tennis, hot tub.

Roll out of bed and—in less than 2 minutes—walk to trailheads or stroll over to the swim club for coffee / tea, then enjoy the outdoor heated pools, tennis, yoga, sauna, hot tubs—no car needed. Still only 13 mins from Rockridge BART.

You can watch the sunrise from the front yard, and watch the sunset from the back deck. Privacy and quiet in spades.

The location is superb: You can roll out of bed and--in 2 minutes--walk to trails for hiking in 2,000+ acres of regional parks, or stroll down the street to outdoor heated swimming pools, tennis, yoga, sauna, pilates, hot tubs—or do both—no car needed.

The street is the perfect mix of quiet tranquility--surrounded by trees and wildlife--paired with proximity to major attractions, such as regional parks, great restaurants, farmer's markets, UC Berkeley, golfing, water-sports, and SF.
