You’ll be enchanted by this mid-century modern home. Perched above Dimond Canyon in Oakmore Highlands beneath a canopy of trees, this four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is often likened to a magical treehouse, seamlessly blending updated amenities with many original architectural features. But this property is more than just magical—it’s stunning, functional, and inviting.

Features of this home at a glance:

  • Built in 1958
  • 3048 +/- square feet of living space
  • 50,089 +/- square foot lot
  • Stunning mid-century, 4-bedroom/3-bath single-family residence
  • Spacious property with terraced grounds and much privacy
  • Bay views inside and out and from all three levels of the home
  • Living room, dining room, and kitchen space flooded with natural light
  • Harmonious blend of cement and slate floors throughout
  • Ample storage in every space imaginable
  • Interior access from 2-car garage
  • Close to schools, regional parks, business districts, and highways

The home’s calming exterior hues integrate it with its natural and woodsy setting, but even inside you’re never far from natural surroundings. Walking through the front door, you will be drawn toward the living room, with its uncluttered lines and beamed and vaulted ceiling. Other details such as partial walls, dropped ceilings, built-in bookcases and cabinets, and windows that follow the roofline create different depths of space—all characteristics of a true mid-century. And although the fireplace is a commanding point of this room, you’ll have a hard time taking your eyes from the expansive windows where picturesque views of the bay and canyon—and sigh-inspiring sunsets—are regular offerings. From here, the open floor plan allows you to move either back to the deck or to the dining room where the panoramic views continue. This space is an entertainer’s dream!

Love spending time in the kitchen? You will truly appreciate the kitchen updates, including top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, soft-close cabinetry, an exquisite slate backsplash, and great lighting. And rest assured: you won’t forfeit any views when spending time here. The windows over the kitchen sink frame those incredible western-facing views.

This house at 2170 Leimert Boulevard is the perfect balance of vintage and new home design. With an emphasis on easy and fine living and a deliberate blend of interior and exterior environments, this property celebrates nature while staying connected to the city. Welcome home!

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 Raiders, Oakland Athletics, Golden State Warriors, 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.
