Where: 496 Gravatt Drive in Berkeley (listing | google map)
Open: Sunday, April 22, from 2:00-4:30 pm

When you talk about homes in the Berkeley Hills, almost everyone mentions the panoramic views – which is not surprising as they are quite beautiful. This 3bd/3ba gem in the Claremont Hills is no different; however the unique and open layout puts a focus on the living space inside, while also taking advantage of the views outside. Held open this weekend by Karen Nelsen of the Alain Pinel Realtors Oakland Hills – Montclair Village office, you do not want to miss this East Bay opportunity.
Originally built in 1994, this home takes full advantage of natural light – with walls of windows, high ceilings and open floor plan. But perhaps most unique about this house is the flexibility of the layout – with gliding, stylish barn doors. Create a two-room master suite on the main level, expand the living room or enjoy a home office with a panoramic view. The adjacent bedroom has built-in storage and its own set of gliding doors (see the pictures below).
This home also takes advantage of the wonderful California climate and features multiple outdoor spaces and patios. Perhaps most impressive, for you gardeners, is a 10,000+/- square foot lot with central stairs in the back yard surrounded by built in gardening beds. I can just imagine all the fruits and veggies you could grow on this hillside!
Some other impressive luxury aspects include – a two-car garage, a large storage area, elegant sliding doors, modern architecture, impressive use of wood, a slate floored kitchen, a laundry room, and an exquisite fireplace in the master suite.
