Piedmont Pines Home with Panoramic Views
The Oakland Hills have nice, large homes. This one is up on Skyline Blvd. in a part called Piedmont Pines between Shepherd Canyon and Joaquin Miller Park. Many cyclists go up there for a fun, scenic, and tough ride.
Because of the terrain, homes here are either upslope or downslope. They require very strong foundations. This home is on the downslope with a garage and storage areas at road level, and the house set below.
This home has:
It's a big house. The kitchen is huge. Off the living room and dining room is a deck that overlooks a canyon and provides panoramic views of the bay.
The fireplace is two sided, that is, it heats the living room and a bedroom/office. That's an efficient fireplace. The uptairs bedroom has ceiling windows, a nice way to let more light in. Shades were installed for privacy and light control.
The living room has a small but practical wet bar, great for parties, or small get togethers.
Many people like the hills because they are quiet, out of the way. It does take extra time and energy to get up there, but for people who want to be closer to nature, a house in the Oakland hills is great.
Off the master bedroom is a small sauna room.
