Your dream single-level retreat property awaits...
Prepare to fall in love as the gates open on this one-of-a-kind property in the prestigious Hillcrest Estates. An expansive single-story, level-in, level-out, with breathtaking bay views, 13800 Skyline rests on a 1.6-acre lot in a park-like setting, surrounded by exquisite private gardens. Gated for privacy and set back from the street, this quintessential Mid-Century Modern enjoys an amazing indoor/outdoor flow perfect for entertaining friends and family, and the flexible 5BD/3BA, 3668 sq ft floor plan is ideally suited to the possibility of multigenerational living in a secluded setting zoned for possible equestrian use.
Lovingly cared for and beautifully updated, the home features hardwood floors and light-filled rooms with skylights and wide picture windows. The gracious living room with see-through double fireplace and formal dining room overlook the front gardens and the bay beyond, while a chef’s kitchen is a joyous opportunity to cook for an intimate family meal or an exuberant party for a crowd. Off the kitchen, the light-filled media and family rooms feature floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto an enchanted garden of fragrant roses, lavender, and jasmine - a verdant sanctuary for a variety of birds and butterflies.
The spacious primary suite features a sunny window seat overlooking the meditation garden and fabulous bay view, and a wall of closets provides abundant storage space. Radiant heat in the adjoining spa-like bath is a luxurious comfort, and the jetted tub stands ready to soak away the stresses of the day. The bath also includes a walk-in shower with a rain shower head and built-in bench as well as a stone-topped vanity with dual sinks.
Three additional light-filled bedrooms at this end of the home share a full bath with a walk-in shower and separate tub, a vanity with dual sinks, and a generous linen closet. On the other side of the home, the fifth bedroom and adjacent full bath might serve as guest/au pair/in-law quarters with a private entrance, or as an office separate from the main living area.
The exquisite grounds surrounding the home include a gazebo tucked into a redwood grove, a tranquil meditation garden, a seasonal creek cutting through an expanse of wildflowers, mature fruit trees, and a fragrant rose garden near a shaded hot tub. This peaceful home is truly the best of both worlds - a haven removed from the rush of everyday life, yet not far from the charm and conveniences of Montclair Village and easy access to Oakland airport. Also nearby are The Hills Swim and Tennis Club, several equestrian centers, and miles of hiking and biking trails in Joaquin Miller and Reinhardt Redwood Regional Parks.

Oakland’s lovely hillside neighborhoods and lively shopping districts draw residents to the East Bay’s largest city - an exciting, vibrant, urban community. In the Sequoyah-Chabot neighborhood, many homeowners enjoy large lots that border the East Bay Regional Park and the Lake Chabot Golf Course. Montclair’s homes are situated on forested lots that offer a quiet retreat from the city. Temescal is an up-and-coming neighborhood along bustling Telegraph Avenue, with the feel of an urban village. In Jack London Square near the waterfront, old warehouses and former factories have been converted to loft living. Lakeshore-Upper Grand, with its mix of shopping, restaurants, antique stores, and a farmers market, is one of Oakland’s most eclectic neighborhoods. For those who live in Claremont, the Elmwood Shopping District offers a variety of old-fashioned shops and mixture of merchants. It’s easy to enjoy a wide variety of year-round outdoor activities in Oakland. Lake Merritt, located in the heart of the city, offers a 3.4-mile walking path, picnicking, sailing, and kayaking. Redwood and Joaquin Regional Parks encompass stately forests of 150-foot coast redwoods and provide miles of hiking, jogging, and horseback-riding trails. Anthony Chabot Regional Park offers golfing, an equestrian center, hiking, bicycling, and fishing. For sports fans, Oakland is home to the Oakland Athletics and the Golden Gate Fields racetrack Oakland residents have plenty of public transportation options, including Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), buses, ferries, and casual carpools. Oakland International Airport is serviced by more than 10 major airlines.
