Completed in 2002, the five-bedroom designed by Phillip Perkins enjoys a fashionable interior with several fireplaces, tall windows, hardwood flooring and high ceilings. Professional appliances outfit a sleek chef’s kitchen finished with stone counters and connected to a voluminous family room. A tiled view terrace rests just beyond this inviting space, and both the dining room and breakfast nook open to the outdoors as well. Perkins designed every home on the cul-de-sac in the years following the 1991 Oakland firestorm, McRae said. A temperature-controlled wine room, a media room/exercise space and an office act as additional bonuses. Set on 1.37 acres, the rolling landscape points south and basks in the East Bay sun. Recreation areas and regional preserves surround the home that’s a few minutes north of Highway 24 and east of UC Berkeley. Slightly south of the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve, this five-bedroom contemporary rests at the end of a placid cul-de-sac.
